I have been working on my proposal for the camping forum again, just wondering if others would like to comment on it. I understand that Activity Guy (admin) is currently in the middle of trying to get a new website happening for the main camping.com.au site (which is separate for this forum), so while he's doing that i thought i'd try to push for some "improvements" for the forum design. It's a pretty contraversial topic as there's as many different opinions as there are members, but hey, it's part of the conspiracy by the government to keep us busy so why not get involved.
Here's my suggestion: http://oz20.com/camping/
Please ignore the template/theme - i was just working on the forum sections and trying to reduce the amount of sections while still accomodating everything, themes can be worked on later.
Basicly it's "rearranging" of forum sections, as i believe there's too many at the moment and it's too confusing for newbies to work out. We get a lot of new members/traffic through here but not many actually stick around. I believe we can improve the site by making a few simple changes, so lets move forward and stop the boats... oh hang on that's been used aleady hasn't it?
anyways, i'm after some feedback, if you think there's not enough sections/forums or there's something i've missed have a bit of a rant and we'll have a throw back and forth with ideas? I think i've covered everyone and any of the current sections can be moved in to these new/simplier/less confusing sections.
So, with any luck, Activity Guy (admin) will have a look and we can clean this place up. *evil laugh*
Timeframe: Given we're all pretty relaxed here, i don't have a timeframe in mind, i just thought it'd be an ongoing discussion, and if we could get a few people to throw a few ideas around and agree, maybe in the future we could make some changes.
wholy molly, it's friday night and i've had few Jim Beams so excuse my long bizzare posts
