    Howe makes a good point wrt newbies and the coaching&equipment subbie. But I am wondering why that can't be replaced with a thread stickied in CC.

    Moving Cricket Web Downtime threads into Site Discussion - Sure.

    Also agreed with Football being given more of a space with its own subbie.

    So, something like:

    Cricket Discussion
    - Cricket Chat
    - Cricket Games & Simulations

    CW Fantasy Cricket 2017

    Other
    - Off Topic
    - Entertainment (Movies/TV Shows/Music)
    - Football
    - Other Sports

    Ask Cricket Web
    - Site Discussion
    - Testing Forum
    More great points, thanks Harsh.

    I'm happy to go with whatever the community would like to have happen really.

    Another topic is the Testing Forum. Should that come out into its own forum and be called something else?

    'Testing Forum' is a terrible name for what it actually ends up being used for, but I don't think it would feel right if it had any other name tbh

    For me, if we fragment OT further then news/politics should get its own place. Take out the entertainment stuff and you have this strange hybrid of light-hearted threads and deadly serious ones.

    Also in the two hours since I objected to further splitting out OT I've come round, and I feel like given the direction the British and American politics threads often go in, separate ideological discussion threads would be a good thing. But it'd be too much in the current structure.

    Do away with CC entirely.

    Leave OT as it is.

    It's a bit weird for example that the ICC sim that's going on is in a different forum from Gazza's DBC let's play
    Would you put drafts in the games/sims sub?

    Seperating these out would result in CC being very dry in the offseason
    AWTA.

    Also, draft and ATG threads are sort of a way of appreciating the rich history of cricket. I enjoy them and think they belong in CC, but if others don't then that's fine.

    I think CC is good the way it is now. The only places I really visit are CC, Off-Topic, Site Discussion and Ban Announcements (sometimes).

    I don't really know if the forum is big enough to split OT up into sub categories. Seems it will just be more cluttered. As it is most things stay on the first page for at least a couple of days.

    I'd sort of go for:

    Admin stuff: sub forums - Welcome to the Forum, Testing Forum, Announcements

    Cricket Chat: as it is now, perhaps with one sub forum for coaching/equipment

    Off Topic: new, politics, music, movies, general discussion, all in the one forum

    Other Sports: soccer, rugby, AFL etc sub forums or threads, either way

    Thanks for your thoughts so far guys.

    I've cleaned up the Gaming related forums.

    I've left Off Topic the way it is for the moment until we get more agreement on the best approach we should take.
