Comics board

Post by TheMyth on Mon Mar 24, 2008 3:58 pm

any chance we could make this into a comics and BOOKS board. I have been reading some really cool non comic stuff lately that I feel many here would be interested in. just an idea that it may be nice to have some non comic literature content on the boards.

Ditto. My suggestion would be to give it a generic title, e.g. "The Bookshelf", so you can cover everything, i.e. comics, books and, if needed, magazines.

the only problem i have is, i don't understand why each board needs to sound like something more complicated than it is. any potential new members need to read into what a board is with all these names.

why can't we simplify the names and not be so fancy. maybe it's just my taste, but I would much prefer:

tiddlers be :smaller scale figures
foot longs and bigger be : 12" and over
virtual worlds: gaming and tech
the watch house : movies and tv (the watch house i feel is a bit of a stretch, why over complicate things)

so on and so forth.

maybe it's just the designer side of me coming out, but i feel the naming functionality is a little wacky at the moment.

I understand the whole, with time you will be more familiar, and I already am, I just don't see the naming system being terribly user friendly to potential new members wh may be turned off joining at a glance.


not trying to derail my own thread, even though I have, but I think it's a topic worth talking about.

Well, it's not like each board (title) isn't accompanied by a desciption.

Lets see...

gaming and tech
vs
Virtual Worlds
What's hot on the www & gaming systems.

movies and tv
vs
The Watch House
Big Screen & Television happenings

All of the info you listed IS there. Just with added flair.

I think a number of the existing thread titles are still WIPs and they'll more than likely change once admins/mods get a better idea of the target audience, i.e. "Footlongs and Over" may be combined with by "Tiddlers" if there isn't a huge demand for larger scale action figures.

I actually prefer thread nicknames, but only if they correctly describe/match the associated thread - I'm from a software development background so thread nicks are like little icons.

I guess what I was saying is that we can state the same things in a much simpler way, it just looks like over complicating for over complicating sake.
