Forum restructuring idea
« on: May 18, 2013, 10:06:52 am »
Alot of the subforums under the Archive board are mostly empty, but they are organized rather neat and tidily.

Just thought it could be worth moving these ones in particular back into the main forum (and merging posts into the proper sub-forums).

Quote
Child Boards: Sauerbraten, Cube, Assault Cube, Blood Frontier, Red Eclipse, Intensity Engine

Obviously, remove blood frontier (and intensity *i think*) are dead projects, so those can stay in the archive.
Just an idea. Could  make things easier to navigate, rather than hunting for stuff in "maps" forum?

I've given you admin privileges so you can do restructuring. Just be sure not to delete everything. Just move stuff. And if you're not sure, make a topic and ask us.

Oh gosh. I'll try not to do anything stupid.  :rockin:

edit: Ok, i just moved 'Cube Engine' to the main forum, that was it. I was going to move all the posts from 'Maps' into relevant sub-forums under 'Cube Engine'. (maps/tutorials etc. in the proper game's sub-forum).

Can't see how to do it though. Is there a batch/mass method of moving loads of posts to another sub-forum?

Also, instead of 'Cube Engine', what do you think of having the main page structured like this:

General Discussion
Mapping Hell Clan
Frogmod
Sauerbraten
Assault Cube
Red Eclipse



Cube, Blood Frontier, (and possibly Intensity Engine) could go back into the archive?

Did you go to Admin -> Forum -> Boards -> Modify Boards?

Yeah. It only allows you to move a sub-forum though. What i mean is to "empty" the 'Maps' forum, and move each individual post into the Sauerbraten/Assault Cube/ Red Eclipse  sub-forums which are currently in 'Cub Engine'.

Was wondering is there not a page where you can select/tick a whole bunch of threads and just click "move-->some forum" in one click?

I can't figure it out. Maybe if you do the reverse - move all the maps in 'sauerbraten' to 'Maps', then rename Maps to 'Sauerbraten'

Ok. Just did that  :D

Have a look now. Also, added a "Cube Engine" category, so it splits up the page nicer. could have an "Other Game Engines" or similar i guess... there was discussion of some of you starting in xonotic. There's also now a Tesseract forum.
