Idea to tidy up Reports forum

Postby RDLC » Wed Apr 01, 2009 5:25 pm

To be a little more specific, the idea is to have the Reports forum be exclusively battle reports and make a new one for peoples' armies. The amount of 'Hey, look at my army' threads is getting to the point where it clutters up every single page of the Reports forum, and I think it might be nice to have a separate one for all armies, characters, and weapons, so that people who want to see some actual battles won't have to dig around so much. Is this a good idea?

Agreed, we do need a new forum for the army threads. Isn't that stuff supposed to go in the Bricks forum anyway?

Technically armies should be posted in Reports From The Field, and MOCs go in Bricks. Read the subtext under the forum names.

But what I'm proposing is that Reports From the Field be exclusively for battle reports and that a new forum is made for the Brikwars armies and vehicles. It would be much more organized that way.

bad idea. rayhawk would have to make a new forum and port over all the army posts in this one, making a lot more work for him. i'm pretty sure he wouldn't want to do that, at least not now.

An armies vehicles are usually MOCs, so wouldn't it go in both?

What if he just made the forum, and we just left what was there?

I think that this is a good idea, it would sure be nice to see some of my older battle reports (and everyone else's) on the first few pages for a change.

I think he would do it, if you BUMP'd all army topics so he could move them to the new section, like he did with Forum Battles.

I think that the solution is just to make a rule that all army posts go in Bricks from now on, leaving RFtF as a battle-report-only forum.
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

So, I guess we should wait for Rayhawk to give a reply, then?

Some of those topics really should be in Bricks, I think.
