It really depends on what you want this site to be a while from now Larry Send a noteboard - 09/04/2017 07:08:56 PM

If there is even the tiniest inclination toward trying to draw in SF/lit readers who weren't around for wotmania's heyday, then I would say having a general Books/Lit board would make for a good "front porch" to welcome them. If this site is going to be all about people keeping in touch, then sure, a CMB with the occasional discussion might work.

Having been around back in 2000-2001 before wotmania had the Other Fantasy and later WoT MBs, I recall there being a lot less discussion of books (maybe as low as 5% of new posts) outside of WoT until OF came into being in October 2001. Then there were maybe 10-20 new threads a day even during slack periods.

So if you think there might be a glimmer of hope for permanently increased activity or that new people might join on occasion, I would say have two boards. If you think this site is predominantly for those who want to have "community" stuff and little else, then sure, have one board.

3 boards - 06/04/2017 03:22:11 PM 1545 Views
I like the idea of just one board. *NM* - 06/04/2017 03:16:19 PM 851 Views
One Board please - 06/04/2017 03:36:38 PM 1516 Views
Maybe leave the old content as archives or something, and just have a single new MB for posting? - 06/04/2017 05:16:44 PM 1601 Views
Why don't you - 06/04/2017 08:20:23 PM 1532 Views
merge and ban anyone who disagrees *NM* - 06/04/2017 06:32:22 PM 866 Views
The only one I might keep separate is the RPG board. - 06/04/2017 07:28:30 PM 1627 Views
Im down with keeping that board separate. - 06/04/2017 08:45:43 PM 1568 Views
Merge it all to hell. - 06/04/2017 07:57:54 PM 1482 Views
I would do 2 boards - Community and Media - 07/04/2017 02:49:25 AM 1514 Views
Agree, 2 or 3 boards is logical - 07/04/2017 03:25:15 AM 1556 Views
Very true, community topics/threads don't mix well with media topics. *NM* - 07/04/2017 03:42:55 AM 873 Views
1 is logical. For proof click on the links for CMB2 and CMB3. It worked quite well. - 07/04/2017 07:05:26 PM 1534 Views
Were those only 1 board? I thought those were broken up into a few. *NM* - 08/04/2017 02:00:40 AM 837 Views
Not until there became too many posts daily. - 08/04/2017 01:27:33 PM 1449 Views
In general, in life, having just '1' of anything is a bad idea - 08/04/2017 05:06:31 AM 1500 Views

I was thinking the same thing *NM* - 08/04/2017 02:08:38 PM 819 Views

Merge it all. - 07/04/2017 12:07:38 PM 1556 Views
One board I think would be best. *NM* - 07/04/2017 11:06:52 PM 912 Views
One board to rule them all *NM* - 08/04/2017 12:07:30 AM 908 Views

Very good post on the 2 vs. 1 board question.....everyone, please read! *NM* - 10/04/2017 02:03:33 AM 970 Views
Yeah but there were lots of discussions of WOT that led people towards the Community. - 10/04/2017 01:38:52 PM 1502 Views
And now that WoT is done? - 11/04/2017 04:43:50 AM 1562 Views
But it makes sense to me. - 11/04/2017 03:26:47 PM 1537 Views
Well, I guess we'll just have to disagree on this then - 11/04/2017 11:37:05 PM 1534 Views
I think one board and more limited topics. - 09/04/2017 10:38:38 PM 1579 Views
One RAFOlk. One Board. One Future. *NM* - 13/04/2017 05:32:37 PM 951 Views
