You may have seen the moderation team mention that we were thinking about a redesign of the forum structure. We've been thinking a lot about how, and why, to go about it, and we've decided upon a series of changes. The goals of these changes are to promote conversation and activity and put content other than D&D 3.5 on an equal footing.
There is also an increased focus on Handbooks and Content. That's because we moderators think that here at MMX, we have an amazing collection of individuals who understand rules, game mechanics, and content creation, and can bring that understanding to bear in brilliantly written guides that translates the nuances of games into the language of the everyday player. We wanted to bring more focus to those endeavors, and to those who supply the large quantity of creative content that supports it.
These changes would primarily entail merging unused or overlapping boards and changing the forum layout to better surface active forums. Don't worry, we aren't planning on deleting a single post, especially not when we got it back so recently. At a high level (working from the top of the forum down), it would result in these changes:
= Meta Board =
Off Topic Fun - Off Topic + Playground + Bitch Like You Have To
Archive (and subboards/links)
= Gaming Discussion =
Gaming Advice - Gaming Advice + Ask a Question + Polling Place
Dungeons & Dragons General - D&D + 4th + 4th Min Max
D&D 3.x and Pathfinder - D&D 3.5 + Min Max 3rd + You Break It
D&D 5e - D&D 5e + Min Max 5th
Other Games - Oher RPGs + Tabletop + Videogames
Rated M for Mature
= Creative Corner =
Creations & Ephemera - Plug or Promote + Your Game Here
Homebrew & House Rules
Legends of the Heroes - Talespinning + Campaign Journals + When Inspiration Strikes
= Handbooks & Resources =
D&D 3.x and Pathfinder
= Playtime =
We will begin the process of changing over in the near future, barring well-reasoned arguments to the contrary.
