So I notice there are a lot of subforums that haven't been posted in over a year...

So, why not combine some forums together? And maybe just combine SPAM Land and General Discussion... It'll make this place look more active for sure.

coz we're lazy. We set them up when we were active but now we're basically dead so why bother.

No. They're separate for a reason.

eh... she makes a point. i mean i know there's a reason that we have a general discussion and a spamland... but that doesn't mean that certain things can't be condensed with others, even if those two specifically aren't. As it is, we're expanded (from our golden days) and only a few parts of the expanded organization are in use. Why not step backward to our earlier form? We can always reorganize and re-expand when we get some growth going, but it would certainly help move us in that direction to LOOK more active.

That's true. And I mean, I definitely agree that it could help. IIRC you and Dave are the only people on staff now, so it's basically a matter of whether or not y'alls want to. The only actual objection I have is to her specific example. And that (if Admin IPB is anything like I remember it) it's a really annoying task.
But I could see it being like

The Empire
-News
-New Members
-Questions/Comments/Suggestions
-Website Development
- -Empire RPG

General
-General Discussion
- -Serious Business
-Entertainment
- -Music
- -Sports
-Gaming
- -Fire Emblem Games (maybe subforums past this as well)
- -Sony
- -Microsoft
- -Nintendo
- -Online
-Spam Land

Interactive
-Spriting
- -Competition
- -Tutorials
-Fanfics
-Hacking
-Errythang Else

Role Play
-Adventure
- -FE:FP (if this is still active)
- -RtVNEO (if this is still active)

13 sections, instead of 22. And I'm sure we could condense past that too if we wanted. Maybe even get rid of some of the subforums, like Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo/Online, and crunch those all into the main section above it, and if we ever get busy enough that they're needed again we can remake them.

nah it's not really annoying to do. it's basically just a "check boxes, press move button" situation. and some places that aren't currently in use like rtv can just be switched so that they aren't viewable. the only thing that stops me from messing around with it myself is that toku and i are here as admins but we basically just run the place and make sure nothing goes weird. not really our place to suddenly change the board's setup.

I thought I remembered something about having to move each thread individually. But I might be thinking of something else.

well a mod could potentially move threads individually to condense (as long as he isn't creating any subforums, etc) but through the admin cp, i could take a subforum and delete it or make it invisible, then move all threads within to another forum or subforum. so yeah it wouldnt be a biggie, but definitely not something i'd wanna do and then wait and see how dave likes it, lol.

eh, I don't really see the point. But if quite a few of you think it would be a good idea, then that's good enough for me.

I didn't remember being able to mass move threads in Admin PC. Either that's something new, or just something I forgot about. Either way, that gets rid of all the hassle.

It's true, we have had a little bump of activity. Now we just need to find ways to bring people in.
