Because if we move all the game forums in with the other ones, visitors to Lunia, LaTale, and Trickster will BAW BAW as if we had just shut down the site.

Hi guys,

I understand that you may not care about the other games but the other 15,5xx members of this site and 400,000 unregistered guests/month do. I realize that all of our decisions won't make everyone happy; we strive to make the majority happy.

FYI: You do have the option to bookmark the game forum in which you are interested so that you don't have to move your mouse a few inches to make that extra click.

Cheers.

Just wondering if it is possible to have a "layout or template" feature, that allow for you to customize say your a TO fan, as well as SDgundam. And would like to show

ggFTW annoucements on top, TO on the middle, SD on the middle below, then all the general, random, stuff on the bottom. Like how it was originally.

So that maybe it will work better for some people?

If it is too much work I understand.

This is what we were trying to achieve with the forum splits we had before. In fact, if you'll remember the MMOG 2.0 project we were actually trying to create separate sites for the games while maintaining the user database.

There were two problems with this. The first is that we had to license every site separately. Even under what you're describing we have to obtain a separate license for each "customized" page. So assuming we do that for the 5 most popular games we're looking at a $629 license fee per site or $3,145 for all 5.

The second problem is simply time. I'm the only web engineer on staff and it takes every bit of my time trying to run cross-promo events (publisher sponsored), key giveaways, keep that damn botnet off here that's been attacking us for the last 2 weekends (the reason you see a 5,000 user record at the bottom of the forum), etc.

Your idea is good, please don't get me wrong -- its just not feasible with our current revenue stream. In light of this, we have to try to organize everything in a way that makes the most sense for most of the users within the constraints of our budget -- which is still in the red every month. It's getting better but we're still not there yet.

Takes a few seconds longer to scroll through and find the game forum I want, nothing much for me to complain about. Besides, the more popular ones have sub-forums in them now.

It took me a bit to get used to, but I think I like this way better. Plus yes, it isn't that hard to bookmark the section you specifically like.
