Everything else is fine. Just stick fantasy sports in the "Other Sports" forum as topics, not as a sub-forum.

Otherwise, you're still cluttering the off-topic.

If you're keeping the Other Sports forum (which you have to do), then just stick those fantasy sports in there. Stick the YT threads in Off-Topic, along with anything else that is genuinely off-topic, and you're set.

I would make a "Member Media" forum, though, to stick mixes, walls and signatures in, and tell everyone that game pictures can be posted in Lakers Talk (or NBA game pictures in NBA Talk).

Combine the Community and Features categories, move the Feedback forum up to Front Office.

Voice Of The Nation

EPIC WIN.
Only thing is, that I think Voice of the Nation should be moved into The Lakers Nation, Just my opinion though.

Kam, Nugget... Can you guys do this? I agree with the moves, but obviously the admins have to approve and move everything. I can do it, as I've had a lot of experience with forums, but I'm sure one of you two can handle it. If not, give me a holler. :rock:

Admins? You should be thanking me for the changes, lol. :whistle:

The Trade Rumors and Free Agency Discussion forum has to stay because of search engines and pipe dream trades. I don't want Lakers Talk to be clutter with pipe dream trades and trade machine trades.

I'll talk to the staff about the other forums.

Can't we rename the forum then? We don't use it appropriately according to the description of "Talk about the latest Lakers trade and free agency rumors."

I moved around a bunch of forums earlier today. That should take care of everything.

BTW, if you are worried about what belongs where, then this post should have been posted in "User Feedback, Suggestions and Questions" and not in Off-Topic.

He intentionally posted here in OT cuz members don't really look at that section so no one would discuss, and there was like a week span when mods/admins didn't even address like 3 new threads posted in there.

^ Nope, I just told Jaime to change some things.

Eternal went on vacation, Game was on vacation for a few weeks and just came back, netlord was studying for exams, JD had surgery, fido is on late at night, and I don't know about MM.

I'll start answering questions, if you have questions.

Pipe dreams trade is like any other game that was posted in Lakers talk. It lasts for like 1 month, and goes to the pits of nowhere. Last post made in the Pipe dreams trade thread was October 7, 2009. In 40 topics in Lakers talk, the earliest date for last post was October 9, 2009. Pipe dreams would be on another page, and likely bumped even lower, unless someone bumps it up. Like any game on Lakers tallk, many members don't even click on the thread, anyway.
In the past 30 days, only 5 topics in that forum has been posted.
TLN has been around for 442 days, with only 169 topics posted. That's an average of 0.382 topics posted per day, real clutter.

and I don't understand the search engines thing.

wish we have a MMA subforum in othersports, but since mma fans aren't abundant here on tln, it ain't feasible

Thinking about it a little longer, Gallery and Theater can potentially be big, but I think it should be renamed and put as subforums to Lakers talk. I mean it would be cool to see the Parade pictures again with an easier way than using the search engine.

I also feel that if Nissan wants to keep Trade Rumors and Free Agency Discussion, can we use it for the purpose it's there for rather than Trade machine trades? I'll help find threads to move into there if we can use it correctly,otherwise, to me, it's useless. Obviously RD agreed since he kept it out when he posted how he would like to see the forum changed too.

Voice of the nation seems to be lagging, and putting it in The Lakers Nation section brings more attention to it, and naturally more people will click there.

TLN sim league at the bottom makes sense since only the people playing will be going there, unless people like to see what's going on. But it's not like an everyday forum.

I remember Nissan saying that we struggle getting 1,000 posts a day now. Having less forums, with the same amount of content compacted, will get more traffic, at least I think so.

Actually, there are only 7 members with the power to do these changes, but still, not even a response from anyone with power. Now they see my point when I post it in OT?
