Forum layout?

Over the years we have added quite a few sub forums to the site. There is a lot now. The regional section and review sections are the obvious ones. Do we need to try to condense them? Are they just fine? What would you like to see? I have my feelings but it isn't always about me.

I think that they are relevant if stuff is posted in the right forums, like when going to another resort, if people post in the right place it is easy to find, but then at the same time, with search facilities, it is easy anyway...

Personally, i always search for relevant terms, rather than scrolling through endless rooms...

I've long since gotten away from trolling the tree. I just look at all New Posts to see what's up.

all i do is hit New Posts and reply to what's fresh - that said:


there needs to be a "last page" option on each thread when viewed from the New Posts page. fuck that stupid little arrow thing that isn;t there half the time or when it is there half the time redirects to some random spot in the thread.


LAST PAGE BUTTON NEEDED MOTHERFUCKERS

I think it's good to have sub forums to make it easier for people to find what they're looking for. I think some of the sub forums could be combined, i.e. the "Boards" and "Snowboard Reviews" seem like they're similar enough to only need 1 forum.

A bit differant from sub forums, but I personally think a thanks button would be a nice addition. It would be good to show someone your appreciation for a good/helpful post.

Go to
User CP / Edit Options / Thread Display Optiond / Thread Display Mode >> and choose "Linear - newest first" and you won't use the "Last page button" anymore... the newest post will always be on page 1.
