  Cleaning the forums a bit.  (Read 2267 times)

Hello, I've been lurking in since the new launch of the site. This is actually my first post to the forums and I'd have some suggestions.

These forums are really an excellent resource but I think they could be a little bit differently organized.
IMHO some forums are in the wrong place now, e.g. the game physics-forum should be at the General Game Topics.
And I think there really really should be a general game programming forum.

I'm suggesting something like this: - Games
Java.Net - Games General Discussions
Off Topic

General Game Topics
Game News
Game Programming
Game Play/Design/Ideas
Game Physics/Math
Your games here

Java Game Development
Newless Clewbies
Java 3D
Java 2D
Java Sound
Online Game Development
Performance Tuning
Tools Discussion
Shared Code

Java.Net - The Core Projects
jogl - Java Bindings for OpenGL
joal - Java Bindings for OpenAL
jinput - Java Game Controller API

Third Party APIs
LWJGL Development
Xith3D Forums

The Business of the Games Industry
Jobs board
Your Resumes Here
General Business Discussions
Volunteer Projects

Changes are small but I think it looks a lot cleaner now.

Oh and a small thing about hte search page: 'Max Age since last post' should be defaulted to 365 days.

I'm thinking about collapsing most of the forums into a much smaller set.

I think that makes sense...that way it would be easier to add new 3rd party stuff, but maybee we don't want that Wink ?

I generally agree with your layout. IMO networking and online game dev could become one forum, and potentially other forums could be combined/reworked. If done right it could increase discussions without increasing noise.

Online Games are not network games. There is a difference, really Wink.

What do the other guys here think about changing the layout? spaceghost doesn't change anything till enough interest is shown Smiley

for Xith3D and LWJGL why not now just call them that rather than adding on "Development" and "Forums"?

1.  Everything needs a section to fall under
2.  I am done moving forums around Smiley
