And now that WoT is done? Larry Send a noteboard - 11/04/2017 04:43:50 AM

They came for WOT discussion and stayed for Community. Splitting up the boards just segregates people who won't then "spill over" into the community.

What's going to draw people in? The "segregation" argument doesn't make much sense, unless one wants to argue that people self-segregated or, conversely, were ostracized at wotmania for their posting preferences. I just know there were several SF/F bloggers who got their start over at OF who didn't really participate in "community" stuff because it was a bit insular then and I suspect it'd be even more insular now.

But that's just my perspective on matters. I'm not really active much anywhere these days (the past weekend being a mini-exception), so either way doesn't mean much to me other than a vague desire that even the remnant of the old OF might live on, I suppose.

I left it out... - 06/04/2017 06:28:01 PM 1671 Views
3 boards - 06/04/2017 03:22:11 PM 1720 Views
I like the idea of just one board. *NM* - 06/04/2017 03:16:19 PM 950 Views
One Board please - 06/04/2017 03:36:38 PM 1689 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 1779 Views
Why don't you - 06/04/2017 08:20:23 PM 1716 Views
merge and ban anyone who disagrees *NM* - 06/04/2017 06:32:22 PM 970 Views
The only one I might keep separate is the RPG board. - 06/04/2017 07:28:30 PM 1801 Views
Im down with keeping that board separate. - 06/04/2017 08:45:43 PM 1745 Views
Merge it all to hell. - 06/04/2017 07:57:54 PM 1661 Views
I would do 2 boards - Community and Media - 07/04/2017 02:49:25 AM 1690 Views
Agree, 2 or 3 boards is logical - 07/04/2017 03:25:15 AM 1716 Views
Very true, community topics/threads don't mix well with media topics. *NM* - 07/04/2017 03:42:55 AM 973 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 1703 Views
Were those only 1 board? I thought those were broken up into a few. *NM* - 08/04/2017 02:00:40 AM 942 Views
Not until there became too many posts daily. - 08/04/2017 01:27:33 PM 1619 Views
In general, in life, having just '1' of anything is a bad idea - 08/04/2017 05:06:31 AM 1667 Views
Tell that to your two wives. - 08/04/2017 01:27:02 PM 1645 Views
I was thinking the same thing *NM* - 08/04/2017 02:08:38 PM 915 Views
*NM* - 10/04/2017 01:37:26 PM 941 Views
Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'entrate *NM* - 07/04/2017 03:57:48 AM 908 Views
Merge it all. - 07/04/2017 12:07:38 PM 1731 Views
One board I think would be best. *NM* - 07/04/2017 11:06:52 PM 1012 Views
One board to rule them all *NM* - 08/04/2017 12:07:30 AM 1010 Views
True magic requires a triple (clicking heels 3 times, etc.) *NM* - 08/04/2017 05:08:27 AM 910 Views

It really depends on what you want this site to be a while from now - 09/04/2017 07:08:56 PM 1798 Views
Very good post on the 2 vs. 1 board question.....everyone, please read! *NM* - 10/04/2017 02:03:33 AM 1077 Views
Yeah but there were lots of discussions of WOT that led people towards the Community. - 10/04/2017 01:38:52 PM 1676 Views
And now that WoT is done? - 11/04/2017 04:43:50 AM 1738 Views
But it makes sense to me. - 11/04/2017 03:26:47 PM 1713 Views
Well, I guess we'll just have to disagree on this then - 11/04/2017 11:37:05 PM 1710 Views
I think one board and more limited topics. - 09/04/2017 10:38:38 PM 1766 Views
One RAFOlk. One Board. One Future. *NM* - 13/04/2017 05:32:37 PM 1075 Views
