New Forums

Post#1 » Fri Feb 24, 2012 1:52 pm

Just having a think about forums, and a few new ones occurred to me:

- Other LARPs. I wanted to post something about Odyssey (viz: the Gazetteer's out, the Pillars are awesome) but there isn't an obvious home for it. An 'Other LARPs' forum, probably in its own category, seems desirable.
- Writing and stuff. We've got the Workshop; this could be the foundation of a new category for other forms of creativity.

Any thoughts? I'll probably create these in the next day or two if no-one says "No, that's a terrible idea!"

Yeah, a "creative" forum would be good. Likewise an Other LARPs forum.

sounds good to me. An other LARPs forum would help me decide what LARPs I wanna spend my money on :D

We now seem to have an "Other" form, thanks Tim.

Would people like a forum for write/drawfaggotry, as suggested above?

Oh, yeah, I remember - I got 3/4 of the way through then couldn't think what to call it. Suggestions?

Creativity is already the heading for that group, though...

How about "The Arts"?

Are people thinking this Arts section is just for TT/LARP related creativity or should we have a few subsections for all types of craftiness?

I don't see why it should need subsections, TT or unrelated art is all good in my opinion!

Ok cool, I was just thinking TT/LARP art in one bit, tabletop RP art in another, geeky fanart in another etc.

With the number of users on here, I'm not sure that having three or more seperate forums for arty stuff is really needed.

If it's really important to seperate different stuff, just put a [DUTT] or [MAEL] or [3.5] or whatever tag on the thread title. Reduces forum clutter and if someone wants to only display one type, then they can do a search.
