Simple is always better, especially without self-moderation.
The Today's Posts tab is the best view for me.

I belong to another forum that has over thirty categories and no need for it. It's a pain to wade through.

Cool..............

Edit: It's cool that you're going to cut down on different forums that really aren't needed. But while you're at it, why not post the subject matter that can be put in general and the subject matter that should go into the dog house. It seems to me that recently you have been deleting threads on a whim due to your own preferences. If that's not the case...........simply let people know what you want in the dog house and what you want in general. Really not a big deal.

Can we get a sub cat for bouncing boob pics from Keef and the Capt. of the "Oh Crap my boat sunk with my Sovereign collection." It would really save some of us a lot of time looking for it. Thank you.:s1:

fyi,

bitcoin threads moved to digital currencies where they belong,

need your help to insure they end up there,

that will localize them so people can find them when they want to find out what is going on with bitcoin and others like that.

Site activity and Site suggestions have been combined into one sub forum

done fiddling for now until we all digest what I have done to ya and myself,

it should streamline things as we look forward and see more and more users working off tablets, phones, communicators, etc.

By 'deleted' does that mean 'gone'? Or just moved around to other locations as in one large pile?

to answer the question posed,

any threads that were in the subs or forums were moved first to their future home,

then only the titles of subs or forums were deleted,

so all threads and posts are still here,

then the counters were reset for the forum so the forum knows where they are at......supposedly

Question has been posed, what goes where?

Good question and a fair question,

With all the recent changes, here is what is going on,

Many of the subs were removed, a consolidation of forums as you already know,

And decisions were made re thread topics,

Anything political such as senators/oatsama/oatsama care etc all go to poli

Anything that is fast moving msm news goes to the Doghouse, such as philly cop this, drunk teens, whatever, as we all know the news/commentary sub was removed due to lack of usage. It was all getting dumped in GD.

The metals are self-explanatory,

Anybody dead goes to real life and coffee shack or DH,

General Discussion has the following tagline,

A place of discussion of important topics to all. Please use sub-forums as appropriate for other.
Now you may ask why I post metal related stuff in GD, and the answer to that is quite simple, we are a Metal Site first, and promote discussion of other items.

Yes you are correct when you say wtf? Yet, we will all get used to it in time.

Many here are unaffected by the changes, as they just use 'get new posts' to view the forum anyway.

The overall purpose is to promote more discussion of topics, to organize stuff so persons on mobile devices can find what they are looking for on the site, and to continue to allow persons to post what they deem important enough to spend their time bringing here.

We have a solid number of great posters who continue to bring content day after day, and for that, all of us can be thankful for their efforts. I won't speak for others, but I certainly appreciate the effort it takes for them to do so.

I want to thank everyone for their help as we go thru this,

It will take us all a bit to get used to it, but it is going very well,

and those of you on mobile devices, please let me know if it is helping consolidate and locate things for you,

Gracias'

^ so what kind of topic would fit under daily news? Just general stuff you would see on the news with no connection to economy, gold/silver or politics?

Getting pretty good comments back on the new layout, for those that peruse the site by forums, rather than new posts, it is easier to find the topics that interest them.

Typically what is going on,

Metals and subs - self-explantory

Topical Discussion - threads of substance more discussion, depth of discussion
--Dog House - threads on the cutting edge, controversial, etc
--Political - anything politics/health care/military/etc

Coffee Shack - threads of faster moving news topics, typical news stories, and day to day stuff

Business News - self explanatory or should be anyway

Constitution - self explanatory

CB Fed - anything to do with central banks and the fed machinations with research on them also
--digital currencies, place to discuss bitcoin and any other digital currencies now have their own forum

Library - topics of historical context, research docs, study of, etc. long term storage of important intel

Editorials - commentary of persons within the community and from the outside in editorial format



The question was posed, so maybe the above will help some, and one can just go look at the forums and view the content to see kinda how things are rolling along,
