I would love to see a VS. area, to pit our favorite heroes and villians against one another.

We can start those threads out on the current comics boards.  If we get a critical mass of them, I'll put them all together in a new board.  How's that?

Just a little grade deflation.  Four more posts to get your star back, Goat.  What's it all about?  Hint: keep your eye on Wise Son.

Re: Forum Requests -- Don't Make Too Many Subsections

Just a quick thought though ... about the "subsections" within categories of the forum -- if you have toooo many, it becomes more time consuming to navigate to see what's been newly posted.  Have to go to 3, 4, 5, .. 10(?) subsections to check out what you originally had to go to just one section to see.  So my suggestion would be not to create a whole lot more subsections within the broader categories of the Forum.  Those broad categories are good enough to tell the viewer the tenor of what to expect in the category (movies, music, politics, general stuff, etc.).   Anyways, that's my two cents.   ;D

There is a trade-off between being able to find a thread (assuming it's on the "correct" board) and having too many boards to look through.  Right now, we have 7 categories and 12 boards. 

Do you all have any suggestions for which boards to remove / merge?  It seems to me that we could merge the Spider-Man board into the Other Comics board.  What about the new Hard Choices and In The News boards?  Keep them or merge them back into General Discussion?  Other suggestions?

Aye, aye.  Done.
So now we have 11 boards in 7 categories.  Other suggestions / thoughts on board organization?

Bye Bye Spidey.  (Reginald hasn't done his Spidey for quite some time now ... which is too bad for all of us).

I kinda think the "in the news" isn't needed, because we used to just talk about non-political stuff in the news in the general section anyway, which seemed right to me. 

I think the "hard choices" one does make sense, because there seems to be so many of 'em and it is a genre all to itself.

Marvelous, will you be adding more titles names for member who have X amount of post (1000 or more)?  We have some people who are reaching the mark.
