This forum has about 200 active posters and I don't even know how many sub-forums... 50 maybe?

Since the theme over the past week has been mergers and simplification (hallelujah!!!), I propose we put some thought into how best to organize this forum. Don't think about what can be added but rather what can be either merged or completely removed.

Less is more. Less is more. Less is more.

Not sure if this can be accomplished yet .. not sure how DNS,VOTE, BTSX will be really implemented ..

but in general I completely agree here!
Give BitShares a try! Use the http://testnet.bitshares.eu provided by http://bitshares.eu powered by ChainSquad GmbH

I like most of the subforums within the [Discussion] and [Decentralized Autonomous Companies] elements. That DAC element is especially important to help focus attention and thought on core DACs. "Task Forces" and "Press" could be subforums to "Marketing".

I think you could remove subforums of [Stakeholders] and [Economy]. Perhaps save "Economics" into a new [Miscellaneous] element and "Trading Discussion" into the [Discussion] element. Perhaps then rename "Random Discussion" as "Off-topic" and into [Miscellaneous] with Meta and Graveyard.

Perhaps [Local] could become six continents?.. that would avoid future need to spawn ~196 of them.


I wonder you might benefit from a closed forum, that only [Heros and Devs and Moderators] contribute to.. perhaps that would be closed or read-only. Doing that perhaps might allow more pithy content for new users to get up to speed on core issues and also make the debate around proposals more sensible and controlled.


Incidentally the [Recent Posts] element is really useful and could do with being a slightly longer history.

Suggestion, can we change the user ranking by order by date registered instead of number of post, so we know who are the more senior and more knowledgeable.

As with BTT you can float your cursor over the username and see the username=number, that gives a sense of their registration. Your's then suggests an impressive three digits 301! I'm not envious though, I have a four digit BTT from 2010 to fall back on. ;p

I would also like to propose the removal of "Vote for Bitsapphire and Support the Bitsharestalk forum" and replace it with a link to relevant news. Example: the emergency conference call on mumble the other day or an official announcement or proposal from bytemaster.

I put a related suggestion in the the Meta section the other day... why do we have a link to the Testnet where News is at the top right? We are way beyond the Testnet at this point and the link only takes you to the forum anyway.

I'd like to see the CHAT feature on this forum highlighted or made to stand out so more people start having discussions in the chat feature. Or it would be nice to see a live chat on the sidebar of the forum something like what BTC-E has.

I have been active here on the forum for only about 2 months now, and I've spent most of my time in the general discussion / newbie sections. The top level hierarchy proposed sounds good to me, but it might be good to look at the existing general discussion and determine if there is a better set of child forums under it.

This forum is an absolutely huge effort to stay on top of.
