I don't have a problem with this, just not sure how it is going to accomplish what it is supposed to accomplish. It just seems to me it will make things more disorganized and confusing. 

This...

I understand the GD pictures thread was not very active, but over the last week there were quite a few instagram posts that probably should have been in the pictures forum instead of the "GD instagram" thread because they weren't posted by the band or people affiliated with the band.

There's already people making new thread for things that already exist (mostly new members) that I can imagine new picture thread popping up or the GD insta one getting spammed with non-band posted content.

It happened the same day I got removed from the team and as far as I'm aware it wasn't even discussed before it was done

I proposed changes to the admins, these are the ones we agreed on. I know that if I had proposed them to the mod team, there would have been little consensus about everything, and these are changes that I think need to happen. So I made a list of suggestions to the admins, we talked about them, tweaked some stuff, then let people know what was going to happen.

I'm not 100% clear how this is affected one way or the other by the changes made.

It's possible, but that's why we moderate the forum. In the end, I'd rather have new members posting stuff in the wrong place than not having them posting it at all. We can tell people where stuff should go, then in the future, they tell people where stuff should go.

What about pinning the main picture threads (Billie, Mike, Tré, and GD) so that they won't get lost among all the other general GD chat threads? It's fun to go back and look at all the pictures from a long time ago in those threads, so it would be nice to have them handy for whenever.

I'm thinking add more tags. Pictures tag, other artists tag, art (like, member's art) tag

I think the Other Artists forum is gradually going to get lost, threads like What Are You Listening To Right Now were ‘fairly’ active but will get lost in more popular general chat threads

Really missing those merged sections on the index page.  It was exciting to see some of the naturally slower threads pop up on the index page.  It was like oooo Matt posted new art better check it out.  It will be a rarity to see those threads on the index page now.

Why would they not have posted it at all under the previous arrangement? Surely the way it was they'd have been more likely to post because they can clearly see there's a space for it, instead of thinking "I don't know where this goes, I could make a guess or just not bother"?

I wonder if anyone ever remembers to post in any of these threads (except for artists updating their art) when they're buried in general chat. They weren't very active in the first place and I can't imagine someone will bother to use the search to find them when almost anything can be thrown in Random Thoughts. :P

If it all goes to shit, blame Andres. That's been my mantra for more years than I care to remember.

You can look at our bounce rate and see how many people hit a thread, then one other page, then leave and don’t return. That happens when people follow something they might be interested in, then look for more, don’t see anything, and leave. 

 

When i join a forum, or hell, even a subreddit, I browse around to see what other type of stuff they have  if they have 16 subforums, I’m not going to bother
