    Clean-up of forum

    I thought it was worth getting some member feedback on the sub forums we have and whether there was any suggestions or feedback people had on new sub forums that could be created/different ordering/removal, etc

    You can almost definitely archive the Battrick and FTP forums. Basically no activity these days and if anyone wanted to post about them it could be replaced with just a thread.

    I think CC needs a bit of cleaning up. Sub forum for Drafts?

    Was thinking something similiar but merging Cricket Web CW Games into Games - General and moving every forum under the same category.

    Since the time Daemon pointed out the New Posts link at the top, I don't think the structure has made a lot of difference to my browsing experience. Okay with the drafts saying in CC as it probably gets more eyes on them and hence greater participation?

    There aren't many drafts clogging up CC anyway. Moving them to a separate subforum won't accomplish anything.

    And agree with zorax. A news and politics forum would be useful. Off topic should be as non serious and laid back as possible.

    As indiaholic said, I dont think the forum structure makes too much difference to me (and I dare say most regulars) due to the new posts feature at the top. But I think laying the boards out the way I suggested above seems a better fit. We have any number of "official" team or country based threads in cricket chat and I think having a subforum where all these threads can exist makes it a bit more logical so that we can keep actual CC for mostly general topics which can interest fans of all teams, along side regular tour and tournament threads. And having the drafts and ATG stuff as a subforum ensures the posts are still under CC but without clogging up the first page for folks who still prefer to navigate that way. Rest is self explanatory, I feel.

    I would oppose any idea to split out into more OT forums. It's not needed.

    Its really a question of who is the target audience here. Is it the forum regulars (and I would argue it hardly matters to most regulars who use the new posts feature) or the new comers? For new members checking out the site, its easier if we can organize the forums better, whether it is CC or OT. I have seen more popular forums have amazingly detailed sub forums. And as a new comer to that site, I found it extremely easy to navigate and locate the threads and topics I am interested in.

    The main reason for asking this is that I hope to achieve this within the next few months.
