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.

3 boards - 06/04/2017 03:22:11 PM 643 Views
I like the idea of just one board. *NM* - 06/04/2017 03:16:19 PM 330 Views
One Board please - 06/04/2017 03:36:38 PM 635 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 674 Views
Why don't you - 06/04/2017 08:20:23 PM 638 Views
merge and ban anyone who disagrees *NM* - 06/04/2017 06:32:22 PM 320 Views
The only one I might keep separate is the RPG board. - 06/04/2017 07:28:30 PM 681 Views
Im down with keeping that board separate. - 06/04/2017 08:45:43 PM 658 Views
Merge it all to hell. - 06/04/2017 07:57:54 PM 618 Views
I would do 2 boards - Community and Media - 07/04/2017 02:49:25 AM 645 Views
Agree, 2 or 3 boards is logical - 07/04/2017 03:25:15 AM 651 Views
Very true, community topics/threads don't mix well with media topics. *NM* - 07/04/2017 03:42:55 AM 311 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 625 Views
Were those only 1 board? I thought those were broken up into a few. *NM* - 08/04/2017 02:00:40 AM 293 Views
Not until there became too many posts daily. - 08/04/2017 01:27:33 PM 556 Views
In general, in life, having just '1' of anything is a bad idea - 08/04/2017 05:06:31 AM 622 Views
Tell that to your two wives. - 08/04/2017 01:27:02 PM 590 Views
I was thinking the same thing *NM* - 08/04/2017 02:08:38 PM 320 Views
*NM* - 10/04/2017 01:37:26 PM 336 Views
Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch'entrate *NM* - 07/04/2017 03:57:48 AM 307 Views
Merge it all. - 07/04/2017 12:07:38 PM 652 Views
One board I think would be best. *NM* - 07/04/2017 11:06:52 PM 315 Views
One board to rule them all *NM* - 08/04/2017 12:07:30 AM 359 Views
True magic requires a triple (clicking heels 3 times, etc.) *NM* - 08/04/2017 05:08:27 AM 306 Views
Or the soul of an evil creature, we could sacrifice Joel *NM* - 10/04/2017 04:59:31 PM 334 Views
It really depends on what you want this site to be a while from now - 09/04/2017 07:08:56 PM 668 Views
Very good post on the 2 vs. 1 board question.....everyone, please read! *NM* - 10/04/2017 02:03:33 AM 379 Views
Yeah but there were lots of discussions of WOT that led people towards the Community. - 10/04/2017 01:38:52 PM 592 Views
And now that WoT is done? - 11/04/2017 04:43:50 AM 629 Views
But it makes sense to me. - 11/04/2017 03:26:47 PM 620 Views
Well, I guess we'll just have to disagree on this then - 11/04/2017 11:37:05 PM 649 Views
I think one board and more limited topics. - 09/04/2017 10:38:38 PM 633 Views
One RAFOlk. One Board. One Future. *NM* - 13/04/2017 05:32:37 PM 314 Views
