Does anyone here, member or guest, think that dividing the Miscellaneous category into different branches would be beneficial? I understand that this is a trivial matter, but it does seem that a few of the other categories as well--art, DDO, society, and so on, can be divided even further. Art could be divided into topics such as paintings, media (films, in particular), and so on, as an illustration.

Does anyone agree with my proposal?

You mind explaining why, headphonegut?

Most certainly I do very much mind, but I'll explain nonetheless.

While I find the OP a bit ambiguous wether it be only the Misc section or several others sections as well that should be divided. The main concern of mine is that while many froums have sections that are divided it seems that is too often the case clicking at a forum for example DDO then being taken to another page where there are as many options on where to go as posts in those options, even then there are divided sections in the sections that are divided. How do you exactly divide the misc section by the way? It would be a bit arbitrary I would imagine.

No.

I've been to sites like that. I don't think there's much reason too have it.

Also the arts forum is hardly used much. There's no need to divide it. The only forum that gets enough attention to even consider it, is the ddo forum. And that's only atm because of recent events. It's already dying down and in a few days I probably wouldn't be able to say this. Also there's the question, what the the sub categories be?

When Juggle first came they asked us what improvement we would like to the forums and it was updated then. They added the Economics, Games and Personal forums.
