Hooray! Now we're a bureaucracy!

Oh, and I think Geo's\TA's division of the boards is quite sane. Or something like it. My only suggestion would be that the first board (Random shit, as TA put it) be split into a few subforums, such that we avoid the Sloth behemoth of yesteryear.

The problem is that that would probably break down to "games" and "media that aren't games".

So, split psuedo-Sloth into Games and Not-Games, then merge Games with Online Games, then?

I always thought Sloth was too general.  Fredward's suggestion plz.

Also, no child boards, ever.

"No child boards" is a good suggestion.  So is "let's not add 300 more boards".

- Forum for the Worst Fat Fucks Ever
- Forum for the Worst Whores Ever
- Forum for the Worst Mother Fuckers Ever

I think these have a nice rhythm to 'em.

I would like to second the request for a page indicator/links on the top as well as bottom of each thread.

I would also like to second the emotion that though these forums are new they're already 9000000% awesomer than any other forum, pyoko unfortunately included but not necessarily emphasized.

Well, I thought up a new naming system with a "Nerd" theme.  It also works if you replace "nerd" with "fag" ::D:
Well, "Fag World" would work better than "Pessimism" in that case, but...

-Nerd Rage
-Nerd Love
-All Alone... (Nerd life?)
-Pessimism
-Nerd Works
-Forum Nerds



Also, I'm guessing it would be to laborious in coding, but I guess it would be nice if we could choose to view or not view number of posts and maybe one or two other bits of information for those of you who like things ugly and unclean.

I'm putting my vote for "leave the side bars as is", because I like the minimalist design.  We should know who is posting, and that's it, really.

And I agree with Thad's stat fetish.  I remember long ago on Pyoko you could check the amount of posts any person had made in a given topic.  I liked seeing how many posts people had wasted in the Bullshit thread.

I have to say, I dig Pessimism as a name for Thadboard3.0.

Let's see if we can build on that.

- Hedonism
- Epicureanism
- Voyeurism
- Pessimism
- Aestheticism
- Absurdism

See if you can find better matches.

-Kazz
-Doom(?)
-Thad
-Aintaer(?)
-Arc(?)

If we were like some parts of the internet, Xenocentrism would be a likely candidate. For the one where we talk of Videogames/Anime/other things that commonly come from foreigners.

Oh, there has to be something better than that!

I'm open to suggestions. Maybe "Tears." They are both vital parts of the creative process.

Hey if we're talking about technical shit to do on the boards, how about a thing where you can view an entire thread in one page, instead of having to go page by page through it?

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

What's wrong with the ministry thing?

I suppose that was somehow a dumb question: Fuck you for thinking that, hypothetical reader.

I'm apathetic about the damn name so long as the mods stay awesomely, obsessively attentive.

Otherwise I like bongo's. It's not like 4chan suffers from a lack of definition in their board subgroup names. We're at LEAST as smart as 4chan. I hope.
