I don't agree with this.But this also means you lose activity.
Yeah, a General-Discussion Board can start more Discussions. But @Malcolm has stated that he wants to keep the current General-Discussion Board for only Tech-Related stuff. Besides, the General-Discussion Board does have a lot of Threads in it.More topics, more discussions.
Well, we could. But then wouldn't that mean that you back-track on your word of 'Keeping Discussions Tech related'? I'm fine with an Off-Topic Board but I'd prefer to keep it Tech-Related only. Not to mention that Off-Topic Boards could potentially take away a lot of Discussions from the rest of the Boards.We could potentially make a new forum for 'off-topic' discussions down in The Hub. What are your thoughts on this?
My only concern was that I could ignore off topic. That works best if it is then in its own area.
Well, I'd probably have restrictions to as what will be pushed to members. For example, posts within this 'Off-topic' forum will not count toward your stats. And will not be displayed in the Advanced Forum Stats add-on.Well, we could. But then wouldn't that mean that you back-track on your word of 'Keeping Discussions Tech related'? I'm fine with an Off-Topic Board but I'd prefer to keep it Tech-Related only. Not to mention that Off-Topic Boards could potentially take away a lot of Discussions from the rest of the Boards.
I'm with @Malcolm and it's that if we add more Boards that people aren't asking for then it's worthless and it makes the Forum look a bit empty. But that's an entirely different story for when there is demand for a Board.The problem with this is that if we start creating more and more forums. It makes the forum look empty and not active.
We can only add more forums if there is a demand for them.
If by 'More', you mean a crap-ton that nobody asked for or are not interested in then no. It's best if we add more Boards as we go along. Maybe add new Boards every 4 - 20 Months. That's a nice pace to add Boards at and maybe once that new Board is added in that time period, there might be a demand for that Board's Subject.Add more tech-related categories.
