True, true. Especially for the non-active ones, but if you start a fresh and leave out a lot of forums, there might be a need to bring more to the table.

Ofcourse, these is the one little thing that is a fact, law, will of god if you will;

Deebs rules.

Whatever the case, layout, style; like it or leave it ;)

Personally i don't post in general.. because of the people in general :p

Why not just sub forum OT and general under the Sofa header?

Meh - I'm sure it will be fine. I post in General, OT, Tech and Consoles and can't see that any of it would bother me.

The BW General posts will still be preserved I take it.

Y'see. That's the highest level of wit I expect from off-topic-ers. :\

But like I said, fuck it. I'm too damn old to give a shit :)

Dragging this back on topic...

A rough mock-up of the adapted layout is on the test forums (access with test / letmesee).

Disclaimer : not finished yet. The subforums in some areas have to be fixed and some names may change.

Seriously, if you cannot be arsed to go look at the testforums then to be perfectly honest I will disregard your opinion.

Go look and then make a comment if required.

I like the layout, though I am not keen on any of the themes (I currently use the default style rather than the green)

Xenforo has a reasonably similar built in style you can see it on their community or here. I'm sure it wouldn't be too problematic to add it back.

For the love of everything don't call it the fucking Sofa, utterly cringeworthy in every respect.

Also, think the layout is too bloated and bubble-y. So much space used for nothing.

Secretly I hope you were being sarcastic.

Wazz : What would you suggest? The Sofa was named after the old deity sofa/couch rather than after breakfast telly. I hadn't considered the Lorraine Kelly angle on it.

Also, with the layout, do you mean I should move the DAoC, Console, Rift and Eve under Games as subforums rather than as part of the layout?

I think he means too many categories, which was sorta what I was getting at the other day.

In your subtle way. ;)

So you think the DAoC, Rift et al should be sub-forumed? I'm not sure Eve will support a forum but I thought I'd give it the benefit of the doubt at first.

Just a forum name that isn't trying to be clever, or stating its anything other than a forum. It is not a room. It is not furniture, it's a forum.

I think wazz meant a lot of empty green space, which there is.

I'm never subtle mate, it just leads to being misinterpreted :p

PC Gaming
--Rift
--DAoC

works better for 2 reasons, firstly it reduces the front page length, secondly if for example rift dies a death and we "archive" the forum into the main PC Gaming forum it won't cause everyone to whine that the front page has changed.

I'm also not sure that a single category with all the forums in it wouldn't be better for space reasons.

Miserable ****. Come up with a title that does away with both "General" and "Off-topic" then :p

--Techie Discussion
--PC Games
---DAoC
---Rift
---Eve
--Console Games
--Feedback
-BarrysWorld

Some suggestions for a new name for The Sofa, if that name isn't going to stick around (Not too fussed myself)

The Pub
The Tea Room
The Rest Room

I'd try and come up with some witty joke suggestions, but it's just not happening right now. Too much studying... Now, back to the books.

I had thought Elite could be renamed Generally Off-Topic. :)

The XF test forum will be rejigged in a few days when Deebs has time. We shall see how much of the feedback we can incorporate.
