    Lightbulb Forum set up....

    So since the forum is getting a lot of new sub section may I suggest a new layout of the Forum.
    IN NO WAY I AM TELLING YOU GUYS HOW TO SET THE FORUM UP BUT SIMPLY GIVING MY IDEA ON HOW IT SHOULD BE SET UP.

    Now I know the changes I did are ugly but please forgive my terrible paint skills.
    I posted them in the order I think the Forum should be set up.

    The Chit Chat didn't seem like a proper place to host the anime section so I moved that. Also since we already have a anime section I saw no point is making an other one that is already serving the purpose. So I delete it.

    I also moved some stuff into the chit chat because they seemed like they should be in there. That is general talk right? I mean movie and music talk seem to be perfect for casual conversation.

    I shorten the manga section in groups because like people have said count less times that it is to big..... I was wondering if you could put the sub forum that already exist(example: The Naruto sub Forum) in the proper section. In a way like renaming the Manga Series Directory we have to one of the section I made. Those can be changed to see fit but everyone can agree that making the Forum smaller will be better.

    I changed the Gaming section since I moved the Entertainment to Chit Chat. I also split the Game Talk since it looked small with only to section but that change is minor and can be easily ignored.

    The manga & anime download section was to move the User Submitted Manga Downloads and add an anime version of it. I also added a section where we can post anime links of our own. Many sites have something like this so I thought that we should have one to and it might bring some popularity back to Stop Tazmo.

    I added a Raw manga section just to put the icing on the cake. Because having a Translators / Scanlation Area with out an Raw section just seemed so wrong......

    You guys have every right to ignored this if you do not like it but I just thought that this might help the forum.

    If anything doesn't make sense please tell me so I can explain it better......

    We already had a discussion about what the forum 'should' look like with a lot of member input. It didn't go too well because there's a lot of choices you could make in arranging the forum, and each member prefers different setups.

    For instance, I don't like the clumping of non-manga subs at the top of the forum you set up. Also, I didn't see the point of splitting the game talk section into computer and console gaming. Then splitting the manga up by genre also makes little sense to me as the majority of the manga discussed here are shounen or seinen. But I'm sure some other people will love it.

    I don't see the point of a meet-a-mod section and I don't really see what would happen there or if it would even get much traffic. I do like some of the suggestions and will have things changed a little by tonight but I don't know about clumping everything together under the Main forum but if anyone has any thoughts on this let me know.

    Looks nice.
    But how about subsections in the genre Forums (Shounen etc) for the most popular series?

    The game section is not important , I did that because I don't like the look of two section by themselves..... We can leave those alone.. The manga split was to make the forum smaller a bit since it does take a long time to scroll down the fourm.
