My main worry is sticky consolidation, especially when you combine Goals & Achievements with Game Discussion. Some of them can go away but many cannot.


True, this will require a bit of a delicate approach. I don't want us to have too many stickies, but at the same time I don't plan on getting rid of the ones that are still actively updated and/or used. Let me know if you have any suggestions on that front.
Oh, I've always got suggestions. Here are my thoughts:


(Legend)
Keep = Useful; leave it there
Desticky = Will be useful if active; desticky topic, leave it in that forum
Move to Village Archive = Useful but only rarely; better off archiving this for the nostalgia

Don't worry Cam, we still love you, even though sometimes you can't read. <3

So, nice merge and consolidation there Jackstick; that was an impressively fast turnaround. This is why we're co-Presidents of RuneVillage, amirite? o/

But with the new merges, the forum descriptions are now outdated (or already were to begin with). I propose the following:

Village Hall
Discussions and announcements related to the Village itself. Make suggestions and requests, ask questions, voice comments and concerns, you name it.

Gaming
Discuss RuneScape or Minecraft, other online games, console games, computer games, and more!

General Chat
Chat about world events, post pictures and videos, or just shoot the breeze with other Villagers here.

The Roleplay and Literary Society
For all your roleplays and Mafia games, book discussions, stories, and poems, when the muse speaks.

I see changes have already happened! I like this, far less overwhelming to navigate!

Smaller and more streamlined. Looks good :)

We'll see how it affects activity...

Runevillage the forum is pretty well much done. Runevillage the group will eventually die, but as long as we're still friends with each other in the end, it's still a pretty big thought in our heads. Runevillage the family is forever, no matter where we settle down. If absolutely nothing else ever comes of Runevillage in the future, that alone is a pretty damn awesome thought.

So as nice as it is to have consolidated forums... I had to go through over twenty pages of the gaming forum to bookmark all 24 of the topics that no longer have a Minecraft sub-forum. That forum had its own cool theme and everything!

Im not saying that all of the Minecaft pages should be kept in the sub-forum, but there are quite a few that I want back...

LIKE:

The sub-forum welcome page:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=436415

The Minecraft Archive:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=431283

The signup, info, and map server pages:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=436416&start=20
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=436406
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=438695

Kiks server:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=437769&start=120

The one-at-a-time server:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=437197&start=40

The redstone help page:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=437773

The creations and ideas pages:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=436401&start=180
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=436382
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=438705

And the contests and Miscellaneous pages:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=437746
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=436747
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=437653

So if you could bring the Minecraft forum that would be great.

Ohthanksjaron. Its just for you ;)

Sparky, if i'm not mistaken, you can use that minecraft theme 100% of the time. Go to your user control panel(top right of the page) and there should be a setting in there!

I know, I have that on. :)

But it was still neat to have an entire themed forum.

It would be kinda cool to have a theme for all forums and sub-forums, but I'm sure that would take a lot of art-ing and what-not.

Like a mafia theme and a tf2 theme ect.

Could probably do a unique banner for each board.
