MOVED - Difference between random and general?
« on: May 03, 2016, 12:10:26 pm »
[member=31]fav[/member], I have truly appreciated your efforts to clean up the discussion here ever since you started moderating. Not only is it a thankless job but it also takes a considerable amount of time.

As I look at the recent topics you chose to move it suddenly struck me that there is little difference between "random" and "general", as both terms are devoid of topic specificity. Perhaps the "random" heading should be renamed to "non-crypto topics" or "off topic". Some of the things you've moved like karnal's "Farewell" fit the non-crypto category better, but others like "Why are you still here?" do not, in that the later pertains to crypto, albeit not BitShares but rather STEEM, yet pertinent to both.

And this post, for example could well be moved to "Forum Management", but like so many candidates for relocation sometimes topics deserve to initially get the eyes that only come to "General Discussion" as they are of general interest to the community but fit better under a more specific category.

Anyway, these ideas just popped up for me and I thought I'd see what you and others had to say about it. I don't think many would say the BitShares forums are well organized and easy to find information; it's quite intimidating to some. Yet, most forums with large volumes of traffic encounter the same problem of keeping information and topics organized, and that requires users that help by posting in the most appropriate place as well as moderators who move things around to maintain order.

 +5% for all your efforts fav!

BitShares General is for bitshares related stuff. other altcoins belong to random or an alternate crypto sub

thanks for the kudos :)
