Ok, serious question for all of you, please reply even if its to say your happy as it it.[/size]
So below is a question I posed to the staff recently.....
Have we confused the site when we went from a simple Retro Games board to all companies having boards or do you think the current layout works?I am currently thinking we go back to some form of basics.


Whats your thoughts on that?

I like it as is bc everything is separate and categorized by game system/company etc. It's easier to find my way around.
The board is longer from top to bottom but 'feels' more user friendly to me.

Seems easier to find posts when you are looking for a specific company, as it is it works.

The forum seems to work well as it is right now.
There are a lot of boards but the 'New Posts' tab takes care of that in terms of keeping up with current topics.
Conversely, if I wanted to start a new thread its easy to find the correct board to post in.

I'd say leave it as it is.

It could use more sharks, but then again, what couldn't? ;)

But it seems to work just fine just the way it is.
If you can work most video games, you mostly likely will have no problem with the current setup.
