    Not to be anal but...

    It seems that the general forums are home to many clan discussions. mac-gamer.com is not only a gaming clan, so I have general forums for visitors to the site, and then I have clan forums for clan discussions.

    So try to keep clan discussions in the clan forums and other discussions (non clan related) in the general forums.

    On the same note: what is everyone's opinion of the forum layout? Are there too many sections? Too few sections? Any suggestions for new forums or recommendations for less forums?

    if i was in the clan, i'd say too many sections

    we used to have a lot (and i guess we still have a lot) of sections and bout half the people check anything but general discussion

    also, too many buttons!! uisually all i wanna do is hit reply and submit, without most of the ones at the top and other miscellaneous stuff

    but it's still a very good board for a clan

    I think the Graphix forum should be joined with the software forum and the software joined with the hardware.

    Thanks for the input. I'll probably mess with that stuff today.

    Or Graphics with Help and make it a web help forum, as that's primarily what the two are. The put hardware and software together into something like a tech help forum...

    I kinda agree about joining the Graphix, Software and Hardware Forums into a Tech section...

    We need that "Bounty" forum.... somewhere to post name or account of enemies.

    forums

    Regarding the bounty forum: I don't think that would work that well anymore since there is absolutely no way of hunting people down on bnet anymore. Blizzard made it so the whois command no longer tells you what game people are in.

    I'm gonna mess with the forum layout right now...
