So here's the run down. First I wanted to say I could have slimmed gaming down to one section but currently it's the most posted category and I really like the fact that there's separate sections depicting each subject. It helps to keep the gaming area organized as the different gaming topics really should be separated.

This is what has been changed.

1. Sports and Outdoors have been merged into one section
2. Religion and History have been merged into one section
3. Books and Art have been merged into Art and Literature.
4. Doomsday has been renamed to "Doomsday and Conspiracy Theories"
5. World News has been renamed to "World News and Current Events"
6. Aliens has been renamed to "Aliens and Outer Space"


Currently I think these are smart moves on my part that would have happened later on down the road anyways. But the gaming areas seem to be getting enough attention for me to leave as/is.

Let me know your thoughts. It seems to be just what I've wanted. Also Laifot I decided not to go on the sub-forum route like in my picture but this should do just fine for now. And as well I decided not to show the sub-forums on the main page as it didn't look neat with only a few.

Other areas are subject to change in the future. For now I think this is good. Also Gaming_Kids you will be receiving the feedback award shortly

You might wanna put them all in Upper Case first. Also "Discuss" for everything could be improved don't you think? i'll give you some ideas in your DM later. I need some rest!

I will speak with you tomorrow then sounds good. And the sections are fine IMO but I will make sure the first letter is capitalized on each area.

I have now re-established Politics and Religion as separate section areas. I believe these will be big forums posted in and I wanted to take advantage of that and not merge them. They are too closely differential then to merge them. The others I believe are perfect.

I have also merged books and art into the section "Art and Literature". This is to make up for the separation of politics and religion. Which it was a good move and idea. I think politics and religion should be separate but Art and Literature should get more attention that way. I have also merged Religion and History. I think this was a good move. Thank you.

I'd be tempted to merge "Aliens" and "Paranormal", but both sections seem to be doing ok activity wise so you may want to leave them alone..

We've already discussed the topic on Discord and have slightly differing views, but what I will say is that 3 of 4 of your categories have 5 sections each. Culture has 6, so you could probably lose 1 in theory - whether it's the 2 I suggested or not ;)

I appreciate the thought. Currently I'm satisfied with everything now. I have merged 3 sections and I think it's enough for now. I want Aliens to lean more towards Outer Space which is why I renamed it "Aliens & Outer Space". The paranormal section will be a different kind of area than aliens. It's fine culture has 6 sections. Doesn't bother me at all. I had history on it's own but after merging it with religion I think were good here. Also I will update the text editor highlighting sometime after I next wake up. (y)
