Regarding forum sections and sub-sections

Recommended Posts

out of curiosity: while we have different "era" sections on the forum with their own games sub-sections( to be more specific, from the GBA to the 3DS ), there's also generic and separate sections for the NES/SNES games and the past-3DS ones.

now, the questions are: wouldn't it make more sense to have about 5 different sub-sections for the NES/SNES titles, like the other "era" sections have?

same goes for the Switch titles: would it be possible to regroup the other games such as Three Houses, Warriors and Tokyo Mirage Sessions in a new category( Switch era ) with its own sub-sections for each game?

 

i do believe i've read something about the changes made to the older sections before, but i can't really remember where's that source of infos. not sure if it was about overall space available, content organization or other reasons.

in any case, i'd rather prefer to have more organized sections for each era/title, rather than having merged/separate ones, but that's just me.

Even still, at least we could have a subforum splitting NES and SNES. Or, if we want more balanced in terms of use, one subforum for FE1-3 and one for FE4-5.

NES/SNES are combined because they are so unactive, well that's the reasoning the mods gave before.

this reasoning holds. if you check the forum, you can easily see that there are four different months of posts represented on the default first page; considering our necroposting cutoff is off the first page and a month old, one can pretty easily surmise that the total S/NES forum isn't particularly popping, and there's no real need to split discussions off and take up more user interface real estate for literally zero gain. for reference, the S/NES forum of five games is about as happening as FE7 Or FE10, Either One Alone.

 

it's worth noting that this isn't a uniquely S/NES issue - there's probably a reasonably near future where i crunch the DS boards back into one forum, for instance, but that day is not today.

this wouldn't be at all balanced. in fact, judging by the long past when the boards were split, even splitting one board as FE4 and the other board as FEs 1, 2, 3, and 5 wouldn't be particularly balanced. the S/NES forum has been FE4, Etc. for about as long as we slammed them together into one board.
