Forum Layout

Postby Grez Bez » Tue Mar 22, 2016 6:35 pm

Hi

The forum is far too busy and I think it's putting people off posting. We need to cut down on the number of forums substantially, I think it will increase usability (It has does in other forums I read)

All you need is

Announcements - This includes Ask Neville
General Discussion - for everything non YAML. Included laws of the game, other football and general football discussion

Results - Keep all results in here from all seasons including the rep team. Post which matches are off in here too.
Fixtures - as above
Recruitment - All posts in here for players/ manager/ clubs wanted

Site Problems - Just in case

Hi Grez Bez

Thanks for the positive contribution. I would still like to keep "Matches Off". Probably not required when there are many postponed games but if there are one or two unexpected postponements then an uncluttered way of drawing attention to that postponed fixture.

The close season should give everyone time to examine this in detail. Can you please make a note to bring this matter to everyone's attention after the last ball has been kicked.

I would also like home page space for drawing attention to "Headline news". Not sure if that can be done in practice.

Regards

Nev

Thanks Nev, your right about Matches Off

You can link anything posted on the forum to the hompage or vice versa but would need a blog feature first, would be good for the homepage I agree.

Hi NEv


Did you get a chance to look at this?

I think it would make the site far easier to use.

Hi

I don't mind doing the work on this? I think if it was cut down we'd get a lot more traffic!
