I am not one for making random threads, messy threads, duplicate threads and what not but I have noticed from the past few days that there is another forum named "Everything Else"

I have been having a lot of fun with it lately and it seems as no one knows about it on here.

There is also the NBA forum right below the Clipper one that no one seems to really notice when it involved other teams and not the clips.

OKAY to make a long rant short, could there be a redesign of some sort on this page so make most of the forums visible?

I hate random threads so I expect this to be deleted soon. just pointing this out.

Private message David the Admin. He's the only one who can do what you're requesting and it's completely up to him if he will obviously.

I do find it a bit frustrating that when I go to the Home Page only the Clippers Rumors or Clippers General Discussion is at the top of the forums as in the top topics that are being discussed when I've seen multiple off topic things being discussed more, or earlier than the time someone else replied to a diff topic. I understand this is a Clippers forum, but I admit personally, I've missed out on some good off topic threads that are NBA related, and aren't NBA related.

You bring up a very solid point. One of my biggest frustrations was moving topics and putting non related clippers stuff in the right section. I mean, even videos are put in discussions when it should be in the multimedia section. The forum isn't hard to learn, people just don't bother trying.

Perfect timing on your thread, several off-topic threads were started today in this section. People starting trade threads when we have a sticky called "The Official Trade Ideas". If people would put half the effort in trying to understand how to maneuver around , this wouldn't be happening. Anyway, maybe your idea isn't bad, it hasn't worked thus far.

By the way, Kudos to you for knowing where everything is at! Very Happy

Its not a bad idea to allow or show more access to off topic threads. A lot of people that create trade threads or off topic threads so it shows on the HOME button when you click it, want some attention to their post because they feel its a good idea or they want some feedback. It seems the only feedback and large posts we have only generate around the Clippers, and as I said this is a Clipper forum, but not everyone wants to just talk about this team 24/7 and maybe has some weird/good trade ideas they wanna toss around, or just BS about some good movie or funny video they saw on the internet. It would help keep the forum alive during the off season.

Not at all man. Send him an email. David is a very approachable, laid back guy. You emailing a request (as long as it's logical) will probably get the same exact response. If he doesn't answer you or something I'll help.

Well what I can do is reduce the # of Clipper threads showing, which will "pull up" the NBA section which is right below it. But I won't do it unless there's a member consensus to do it.

I actually made some changes in the past to make the NBA forum and the EE section more visible. Notice that the "Members Online" area is below the NBA section- it used to be right below the Clipper forum which meant the NBA forum was pushed down more. Also the EE section is actually right there to the right of the Clippers forum and scrolling, so it's pretty hard to miss!

Guys also another reason David is hesitant to make changes like this is... for example the game chat room. People voted in favor of it by like 95 percent.. and the first few games it was full and fun. Within maybe 5 games during games you'd have maybe 2 people in it. Be sure you all want this.. and you really feel it would improve things before voting one way or another. If enough people care about this David can probably start an official poll.

This site isn't full of a lot of traffic compared to others, so the chat room that failed isn't all our fault. Lots of people have things to do during the games or aren't home at all! Once the franchise starts winning more games and hits the playoffs expect more traffic here.

However for the true members that have been on the site close to a year or more, and are active on here yeah we would like to see a few minor changes here and there. And I am sure if they were made we'd do our best to make sure the changes got attention. Just, if a change gets made here, I am sure the MOD or the site owner has all of our emails, sending out a mass EMAIL to everyone informing them of changes to every registered user on the site might not be a bad idea, or sending everyone a Private Message on the site.

Fascist? I thought I was more of a Totalitarian figure. There is a difference between the two. Razz
