forum Reduce number of Categories/Sub Forums

Recommended Posts

It's too granular, and you end up with heaps of dead sub-forums

Suggestions:

Consolidate into "International"

  • North NZ
  • South NZ
  • Canada
  • United States

Consolidate into "Photography & Art"

  • Computer ARt
  • Photography

Nearly tempted to say we should have sub-forums within each of the "eras" of Skylines something like

1953-1988 Classics

  • Forced Induction
  • General Maintenance
  • Suspension & Braking

1986-2002 RB Series

  • Forced Induction
  • General Maintenance
  • Suspension & Braking

2002-Present VQ Series

  • Forced Induction
  • General Maintenance
  • Suspension & Braking

Kinda get the idea? At the moment feels like there are too many sub-forums and people post everywhere

Stunned that you posted this. I had just today started drafting a new forum structure to ask the mods. Eery.

I'm wondering if the skyline series forums you posted will be too granular? Do we have an R35+ forum?

We need to get some people to provide feedback.

Kinda, it's here:

https://www.sau.com.au/forums/forum/80-vr-series-r35-gtr-juke-r/

Could do:

  • Classics (S, C, R30)
    • General
    • Engine Modifications
    • Suspension, Braking & Body
  • R31~34
    • General
    • Engine Modifications
    • Suspension, Braking & Body
  • V35~V37
    • General
    • Engine Modifications
    • Suspension, Braking & Body
  • R35
    • General
    • Engine Modifications
    • Suspension, Braking & Body

Then consolidate all of the Automotive Category and/or move the threads into the appropriate new structure

Fantastic.

Lets get some more feedback on this. We're also going to need some additional time to move the topics around.

Thanks DPS.

I kind of like the above as stated by OP. My only comment is where would Build Threads/Upkeep go? I really like these threads and are where I spend quite a bit of time. 

Could we also add a Build Thread into here like this:

1986-2002 RB Series

  • Forced Induction
  • General Maintenance
  • Suspension & Braking
  • Build / Upkeep 

I too like the idea of sorting by generation of Skyline. It's how my mind thinks about these cars. I know an awful lot about R32, R33 and R34, but couldn't tell you the first thing about a R35 (ok, well maybe the first thing, but not much else).

I think builds still need to be top level and include all cars.

Yes that would be good so something like:

  • For Sale / WTB, blah blah
  • Car Builds blah blah
  • General Discussion / News, etc..
  • Classics (S, C, R30)
    • General
    • Engine Modifications
    • Suspension, Braking & Body
  • R31~34
    • General
    • Engine Modifications
    • Suspension, Braking & Body
  • V35~V37
    • General
    • Engine Modifications
    • Suspension, Braking & Body
  • R35
    • General
    • Engine Modifications
    • Suspension, Braking & Body

And bin the rest (but amalgamate the content)

Way too many forums, sub forums, way too much dilution

Yes. I like this plan. Please put me down as a +1 for this. :D

So, what if we had just general sub forums, like;

* Classics 
* R31 - R34
* V-series
* R35
* Other Japanese
* Euros

And we didn't have any sub forums underneath them ? 

Also, its going to take a bit of work re-categorising these, having general areas will be helpful there too.

We can force the use of tags so people need to pick from wheels, brakes, suspension yadda yadda to make it easier to find content rather than extra categories.

 

Thoughts?
