Now how are we going to go about the index changes. I honestly have no idea how to move all the stuff around on the panel and 3D was having problems too last I heard from him. Could you maybe help with this Hutch?

It is now acceptable to say Me and someone AND Someone and I, I heard from my dad that the Queen has now allowed it so; Queens english, the correct form of English does permit the use of the grammatical structure: Me and someone.

I am fairly sure thats correct as my dad told me and he's really annoying about grammar and stuf Uncertain, but he may have been joking, but i'm fairly sure its correct. Uncertain

Also i think that the colours themselves are fine, and now you have changed the member colours they are absolutely fine, and that the restructuring of the forum, will be controversial but i'm sure will be a great decidion too.

I suggest that you first figure out what all the sections are going to be and then change them. All you have to do is move all the threads to that temporary container you made, delete the empty section, and move the threads to the appropriate section. You can also rename them if necessary.

I personally think that having only a few sections (like five of six) is a bad idea, because there will be tons of threads in each section and it will be harder to find specific threads. Here are my suggestions:

- Keep everything the way it is, except get rid of the sections we don't need or don't use.

- Expand the Off Topic section into several sections, so all the threads aren't crammed into the same place with no organization.

You aren't the first to bring up thread-density as a potential problem with the new set-up. I'll just quote myself on this because I'm feeling lazy. razz

I wrote:
Actually, as regards the time taken to find threads, I believe the opposite is true. Happy. Currently, finding threads without using Latest Topics takes a long time because you have to check a number of different sections to find what you're looking for -- once you're in the right section the most you'll have to do is go back a page or two to find it.

The balance between the two situations we've described, then, is what we have to strike. My opinion is that, should we conform to the model in the OP image, the number of active threads per section would be low enough that finding a specific thread would not take long, as it is simply a matter of going straight into the one section it fits into and, if necessary, click back a page or two. Joyful

We already have an idea of what it will look like but the time consuming part is organizing all the threads we have now into the new set up. I believe Delta had photoshoped pretty much what we are aiming for.

How long do you think the "condensing" will take to finish?

Don't take that the wrong way. Take as much time as you like, I'm just curious to see the result! :P

I couldn't place a time. Its taken this long to drag into it so I assume its going to take a few days before its fully complete.

I appreciate the changes your making. Curruntly it takes forever to find a thread thats not on the latest topics. The colors are nice too. They don't hurt your eyes to read as much as the old colors did.
Agreed, Pastel colours FTW!

Also, the reason (or at least what he told me) that Lazer isn't happy with the ranks is that it "Limits his chances of getting a promotion."
ಠ_ಠ
The only ranks that seriously matter are mod/chatmod pretty much everything else is a colored name. In my oh so very humble opinion.

Kitty: That may be true, but that's not my reason. Again, I understand spore is going away, but I'm kinda dissapointed that we don't care about it much anymore. GAC is no longer GAC. Even if spore is dying, I liked having those ranks for the reason that we could all be proud to play spore and make cool adventures. So sorry if I seem like I hate that you guys are doing hard work, I appreciate it, I really do. And yes, I'm only making suggestions like EVERYBODY else. So no need to snap at me. roll Although I understand Hutch and Drew, It may seem annoying, but you actually asked for my and a few other people's input on the chat the other day.

I asked for input not complaining, did you even read what I said?

Yes. I did. I did see what you said Drew. My input was that you're doing a good job. Then I said I was just a bit sad that we don't care about spore anymore. Neither of those were complaints. 1 was input, one was my feelings. :P

I think you guys are being a tiny bit unfair on Lazer, hes a good person, and is entitled to his opinions. You guys are all fully entitled to ignore his opinions, but you could do the bigger thing and take it in. He isn't trying to complain, and we are all grateful for what you are doing, and thanks.

I'm guessing you will be doing some deleting of old dead threads, right? Also take as much time as it needs to do it properly :D

Could you not delete the locked Z-Lite Destiny RP? I still need it for a project.

No, the entire RP isn't locked, it's the first 50 pages.

I dunno, most of the sporum threads I see now are all "OMGZ MAXIZ Y U NO GIVE PATCH I HATEZ U U JSUT LIEK MUNEH DARKSPORE DR PEPPER RAINBOW BLEH!" and it seems impossible for any newly featured creations to maintain a positive rating. The community isn't DEAD.... it's more... Uh.... Zombies? For the most part that is.
And now for my whiney, childish opinion on the changes: I like everything that's been done. I like the new structure and ranks (and for anyone that doesn't like the ranks just remember that it doesn't matter what rank you're in as long as you're not a mod/admin and if you're getting worked up about little things like that you won't be becoming a mod/admin any time soon).
I have one suggestion to make (oh no): a section for discussions about games that aren't spore or minecraft. We may not have too many threads about that but we are a gaming forum; why not have a place to post a thread about a cool game you got last weekend?
Anyway, that's my two cents. Spend them how you will.

I will go offtopic but I dont want to continue this for too long. Spore and Spourm is not dead and wont die till the servers are shut off. Its a shadow of its former self. The site has been taken over by trolls with many alts and the spourm is for the most part very childish and ignorant. Most of the veterans are gone which is not helping much. Those old guys used to keep everyone in line. But no more.

Hello again, forum...

Anyhow, concerning the condensing of threads, sections, forums, etc. :

Epsilon and I figured it would be best if you all (The community at large) could PM me the threads you want to stay unlocked, that would allow for a much smoother condensation process. This way, we can save all the threads we still need, move the others, and proceed to match the layout posted in the OP. You will also receive an EMAIL about this. I can't PM you because then I'd have to write out all the names, which is a buggering annoying thing to do. Edit: Will be PMing, more likely you all will see it.

Thanks for your co-operation,
- 3DBlenderRender

Threads asked to be kept so far:

We can always just lock all the threads, then have people PM you with the threads that they want re-opened. That would make it so I don't have to think as much. However, it may also cause a flood of PMs. Your choice.

I will be moving some threads out of the Locked Archive into the GAC Discussion. Those of which are mainly helpful threads.

Actually I am going to move active threads into the new sections because they are just chilling down there in the archive.

Well, a big thank you to all of you folks who PM'd me, talked to be in the chatbox, etc, about the condensation. Thanks to Delta and Drew for the idea, too. But primarily, thank you all for your quick responses. I believe that it's much easier to navigate inside the index now, thanks to your support and action.

I believe the changes are coming to a slow now, so feel free to resume posting as usual, and enjoy the new setup. I believe it'll be quite easier to find where to post, and where to find threads.
