Holy new forum software, Batman! As you've all noticed by now, our new forum software is very different from our old home. And while moves are always a good time to discuss potential restructuring, it's even better when we have so many more options to explore. To this end, we'd like your opinions, as the users of this system. We've got some ideas about how we could organize on the new boards, but we want your feedback so as to create the best possible fanfic experience for everyone. The options: 1. Resource forum as main, with Before, Saga, and Beyond as subforums Resource would be the primary point of contact for all of fanfic. The advantage of this is that everyone in fanfic would be more likely to see announcements, contests, and join in the community, which can only result in more fanficcing fun for all of us. 2. Four separate forums. Just like old times. 3. One resource forum, one fanfic forum where eras are differentiated by tag Less scary than it sounds, we promise. You'll have noticed by now that we have these shiny tags we can place at the front of a thread, and we would be able to see, at a glance, which stories belong to which era. Furthermore, you can choose to display only threads from a specific tag. So it wouldn't be as much wading as you may expect to find the stories in which you're interested. We hope that this might encourage readers to perhaps look at stories they may not have even thought to look at before, and more mingling of the community. Things aren't as busy as they used to be, so the likelihood of smaller forums like Before getting buried is much lower. 4. Single forum tag madness. This is probably a terrible idea, but for the sake of argument, it's an option. 5. Act a fool. Sometimes, it is the only way.. Do note that we are not planning on merging NSWFF and Resource in with the Star Wars fanfic, as that would get to be far too unwieldy. They will remain their own entities. Also remember: if we try something new, that doesn't mean we can't go back to the old way of doing things if it is not working. A trial run is a very viable option at this point. So, give us your thoughts/questions/comments/ideas!
