Does anyone have suggestions for specific forums? Should we have a gaming section with a forum for each game? Should we have a photography forum? Should we have a mapping/scripting forum? A website forum?

Throw out your ideas here...

I'm digging the idea of particular areas in the forum for it shows a much more professional appeal.

I think that is a good idea - what if it were a little more general, such as "Music and Entertainment"? This would also encompass things like movies and such. Good - bad - ugly?

Good call Majik and Mack. We could give music, movie and other reviews.

Becuse I am anal sometimes, and used to it..

Would anyone object, and would it be possible to move the clan forum section to the bottom of the main page?

I am used to the clan section being more near the end, and it is kinda throwing me off to have it dead center.... :)

Another thing...

one of the things that used to really make me enjoy nachos was the main page was different then it is now...

for anyone that was around for a long time, they used to have the main page just be a list of all the new posts in any forum, they were jsut listed by most recent post... It made it easier to know who was posting something new, and what was active at that moment.

I think it also got more ppl involved in different threadt, because some ppl just don't go into certain forums.

Can this be added? Because I think it might make traffic move a little more...

ok I am dont for tonight... it's already after 2am... :)

Nachos uses VBulletin, we currently use PHPBBS here.
One reason is cost.
As far as moving the forums, maybe PM Mack, as he is doing most of the reaL WORK HERE.

I agree with Kia. I am having a problem getting around to all the posts. Maybe I'm mentally impaird or something but the learning curve here is steep. The sites are hidden in a sense. There seems to be too many layers. Unless you open each one to see the latest post you miss it.

As far as suggestions for new topics. Howzabout a site where people with great knowledge can explain for example; How the "point system" works in Counter Strike (ie. Is there a certain amount of points you get for making contact with hosties, do you have to get them to the rescue zone to get all the points. How many points do you get & do your team mates get the same amount of points. Do you get points for damage you inflict to the oppsing team or do you only get them when you make a kill. etc., etc., etc.
Or a site that talks about and, people can debate on the benefits of changing certain settings in game or in the control panel.

Actually if your looking at the board index page under the banner on the left you will see VIEW NEW POSTS. Click there and it will give you them. Highlighted in GREEN. Hope that helps! :)

Thanks for the ideas guys and keep the discussion rolling. I have some thoughts, but I need to get to bed. In Boston this week, and I am exhausted after a 16 hour work day today...
