Forum Structure Simplification

Postby Rapsey » Fri Feb 08, 2019 5:00 pm

I've always felt that our forums are way too bulky and convoluted, with exactly 100 sections and categories at the time of writing. So this thread will double as both an FYI of minor forum changes made, and a place to suggest and discuss further optimizations.

The following changes have now been made:

Spoiler: show
  • merge Other > Forum Games, Other > Jokes & Other Funny Content and Other > Other (none of them have post count anyway)
  • remove Other > Real Life Discussion > School (can go in Other > Real Life Discussion > Intelligent Debate)
  • remove Other > Media > Artwork and Other > Media > Music (both can go in Other > Media)
  • remove Other > Real Life Discussion > Goals & Achievements (can go in Other > Real Life Discussion) (not the same as in-game Goals & Achievements!)
  • remove PkHonor > Suggestions > Rule Suggestions (can go in PkHonor > Suggestions > In-Game Suggestions)
  • remove PkHonor > Market Place > Services > Report a Service (can go in Reports > Report a Player)
  • remove PkHonor > Market Place > Armor & Weapons / Skilling / Rares / Miscellaneous (so only the Services subforum remains and everything else goes straight into Market Place)
  • remove Help Desk > Feedback (use PkHonor > General Discussion instead)

Sure, I don't mind it how it is now, but I support your proposed changes.

I like the color scheme of the new osrs wiki: https://oldschool.runescape.wiki/w/Chambers_of_Xeric
Having all those links on our front page in a sidebar would also be amazing. Navigating the wiki can be a huge pain in the ass. Especially when you are editing multiple pages.

Depends on how elaborate the redesign is. Minor changes like tweaking the color scheme aren't that hard to make or maintain. Completely making our own custom theme would be a lot of work and a PITA to keep updating it to be compatible with new releases of the wiki software. So minor changes are as far as we're prepared to go with that.

EDIT: Changes have been made. There may now be a few superfluous stickies that have ended up in other sections. In addition some links in stickies may need to be updated. If you find anything wrong feel free to post it on this thread.

Perhaps change the "Forum Games, Jokes & Other" to just "Other"?
Next to that everything looks great. The market place has a bunch of stickies that shouldn't be there (you're aware of it) but for the rest :thumbsup:
