So, to put it bluntly, I think the forum sucks right now. Visually, I mean. It's all over the place, with too many categories, many with just one forum or two in them...
I think it really, really needs to be reorganised.
Since criticism is easy, but suggesting is better, here is my personal suggestion:
General Chat (subforums: Forum Games, Telltale Comics Discussion)
Our Telltale Heart
Back to the Future
Sam & Max (subforums: hints, comics, freelance police dispatch)
Tales of Monkey Island (subforums: hints, pirate club)
Wallace & Gromit (subforum: hints)
Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People (subforum: hints)
CSI (subforum: hints)
Game Pilots/ Single Episodes
Nelson Tethhers: Puzzle Agent (subforum: hints)
Bone (subforum: hints)
Telltale Texas Hold'em
Shopping or Activation Support
Forum & Site Help
Explanation: I think reorganising it in such a way would mean less scrolling down, and it also means that the support category wouldn't be lost all the way down there. Also, I personally just can't get over a category with just one forum in it, so I took Our Telltale Heart out of the General Discussion as a subforum. But I realise I might be OCD about it.
Either way, it seems to me hints as a subforum in each series would work, they would still appear at the top of the page... I don't think we would end up with people asking for hints all over the general discussion... I may be wrong.
Another idea I had would be to split it so there was a "game discussions" category and a "hints" category. Not sure how well that would work, though.
Really, I don't have an ideal solution I'm sure would work 100%, but I just think it looks really, really bad right now, and every time I come on the forum I just want to streamline it, it just bugs me.
I mentioned it to nikki, but she left. Then I talked to Dave E, but he left too... So yeah, is there anyone who can take care of it? That would be really great.
