Default Number of Forums

Hi Everyone,

I would really appreciate some feed back on this Poll. NAFFF has a bunch of Forms and I wonder if we should cut back the number. Just for instance there are eleven sub-forms in Fly Fishing the United States. Would it be better to cut that down to six or so?

Maybe you like it with many sub-forums so you can easily find information about your state. Some sub-forums get very little action while the Mountain States area gets a lot of action. Let me know what you think.

Frank

Default Re: Number of Forums

I voted too many

There's 4 Mexico forums with a total of 27 threads and the 4 Caribbean forums have a grand total of 14.
A little overkill I think

Both the USA and Canada sections could be trimed back to almost half too.
The 4 business classifieds could be one (with sub-forums maybe) and there's 2 member classifieds in two different places. One unused
Articles in 2 different sections and the same with 'Announcements'

Before my son upgraded my computer, it took forever to load the whole forums page.
I had to close out the sections that I wasn't interested in just to make it quicker

just sayin'

Default Re: Number of Forums

I voted whatever the admin wants to do. First the people running NAFF are more in touch with what it takes to keep the site running efficiently. Second the only time I refer to "which forum" is whenever I start a new thread. Otherwise I like to look at all posting so I usually go to "NEW POSTS" or "TODAYS POSTS". IMO, I'd like to see the forum open to a list of the most recent activity postings.

Frank,

I went: Whatever you want to do, based on the fact that I only ever use the main discussion board, fly tying, and some of the most active forums I post comments on. I think you will make a good decision.

Hi Rip Tide,

Thanks for your candid answer. This is just the information I am looking for. I share your opinion that there are too many forms and they should be cut back. Since the change over there are some forums that have been duplicated with new forums but the old forums were not deleted. I am going to be working on this for a while. The trick is to not lose any threads if we can help it.

Frank

Frank,
I agree with Larry and Rip Tide. You can't be everything to everybody. Count the hits on each forum and whittle them down to the most used.

Default Re: Number of Forums

I voted too many, I like others usually just look at today's posts and only use the forums when I am specifically looking for the fly swap thread or starting a new post. I think they could be trimmed by at least a third and maybe more.
