I could just do this on my own, but I\'m curious about what you guys think first --

How about recombining console discussion with the main forum and pc hardward\\software again, political events with off-topic and suggestions with off-topic as well?  That way, all that will be left for public view is the main forum and the off-topic forum.  I just think that\'s the way it should be as this forum, though it carries the name of psx2central is hardly that of a ps2 only site anymore.  We\'re all broad gamers now and we all have our love for different topics at hand and I think we might as well make it one big smelting pot instead of segragating topics.  What do you all think?

For the intelectually impaired, that would look something like this:

Main Forum  \\
Comp Forums ------> Main Forum
Console       /

Political \\
Off Topic -------------> Off Topic

My thoughts

I think we should just put Hints into main and Political into Off-Topic. I don\'t like the thought of only have two forums to potentially click on...I would find it really depressing for some odd reason. Wouldn\'t look visually pleasing for newbies and everyone I imagine.
Who is this anamoly we call Jumpman? How is he able to do what he does and still survive after years of torment? It seems he feeds on the hate, growing with an intense passion to put unassuming members in their place.

Maybe it would be better if the main forum was renamed ps2 forum, and console discussion renamed other consoles forum or something similar.

Just a thought.

I agree with deleting the hint and cheats forum and moving political into off topic though.

I don\'t understand what the purpose would be in recombining Current Events and Off Topic.  As I said in the other thread, there is no advantage to combining the forums, only potential disadvantages.  There are such a tiny number of forums here as it is.  Why make it even fewer?

I like the seperation, it seems to keep topics more on track.  When people go into Current Events they cut the spam down, for the most part.

Personally, I like the forum exactly the way it is. Its easy to follow and is easily kept track on who posts where.

I agree about the current events forum.  SOmetimes it seems worthless, but it certainly has helped in keeping it from going off topic.  THose threads usually stay on.  

I also like the idea of changing the main forum to PS2.

Only thing is do we get any new traffic?  Are we linked from any sites any more?

My idea;

Main Forum : Mainforum and  HintsnCheats
Offtopic : Off Topic and Political
Console Discussion : As it is
Suggestions
Journals
Think for yourself. Question authority.

I like the idea of..

Take Console Discussion / Main Forum - the presented idea of making this site goin multi-console has been around for quite sometime and is in the works. No longer a need to seperate the two forums , I think. Any Console Discussion Mods would simply have power in MAIN FORUM also. Same with Hints and Cheats.

Keep Current Events seperate from Off-Topic, due to spamming. However, combine PC HARDWARE / SOFTWARRE to OFF-TOPIC. I know I have to move quite a few threads to the PC forum. No point in having it, as we are not a dedicated PC site anyways.

Get rid of the Journals, only two people use them on the average.
Keep Suggestions.

If the journals are a hassel then maybe get rid of them but I don\'t see what harm they cause as I\'m sure atleast a couple people read them also.
