The layout looks fine now. I say we do it. If the layout can be changed now, it can be changed again if someone finds out a major disadvantage.

Concerning the bot sub-forums, I would leave that decision to the bot coders. If they see fit, they can split their forum into more sub-forums, if they don't, they just let it be. Besides, for less visited bot forums, splitting into sub-forums would mean more sub-forums than threads, which is a bad structure IMHO.

Don't forget the visitor side of the whole affair: At least in the respective bot forums, guests will feel more "at home" if the layout isn't too different from what it used to be.
And if, for example, JoeBot users think that the JoeBot forum layout sucks, they can always discuss that right there, and eventually ask Asp to change something.

As for the waypointing forum: Once again, think about our visitors. What do they care about angles, vectors, different values stored into files, format discussions etc...? They care about having a waypoint file that friggin' works as perfectly as possible. And I think we agree that having a PB 2.5 WP for PB 2.6mm isn't as good as having a PB 2.6mm one, right?
Besides, the editor also has an influence on the waypoint files, as it allows WPers to implement things that would be so insanely work-intense with the old WP editor that NO Pb 2.5 WP takes advantage of them.
Not to forget the different use of button flags, and the new lift flag...
I say keep them separate.

Strictly speaking, there is no format difference. But for the user, there IS a difference. And the forum is for other users... or isn't it?

Yup it's high time to do something. Argh.
I have a few comments: (in red)

[ index.php: ]

Important Read First <-- /me likey

The Agora
nice separation but is there really that much traffic in the Agora to require several subforums ? What's good with the current layout (no subforum) is that all the active topics are immediately visible on one page. If we had several subforums we'd have to check them one after the other.
  • General
  • Polls <-- but having a special polls subforum is definitely a good idea.
  • Sugesstions \Ideas
  • Report Problems
YappA (Disccuss\Help Stuff)
nice separation
  • Half Life and Halflife 1 mods
  • Half life 2, Source & Source Games
  • Steam <-- does this really require a subforum ?
  • Other Games\Mods
  • Offtopic
  • Spam (junk post thread stuff get deleted after some months?) <-- what's the point of this one ?
Counter Strike Bots
like T Wrecks I think we should let the bot forums layout the decision of the bot makers. But separating them into categories is good IMO.
  • PODBot MM (A similar layout applies to all bots?)
    • READ FIRST (THIS IS NOT A THREAD BUT A POST GIVING ALL THE MAIN INFORMATION NEEDED)
    • General

  • RealBot
  • JoeBot

  • Sdk Discussions

    • Half Life 2 Sdk
    • Others Sdk
other than that, very good. Ah, but we'll finally end up with something potable !

re: drop down menu

that would be on the index

so on index u'd see
___________________________
The Agora

Yappa

...
___________________________
then mouse hover over one of those would bring up the sub forums.


alternatively we could have a side bar doing the same, just have main forum titles, click on one brings sub froum titles underneath then clicking on the subfroum bring it up on the right hand side


esentially this keeps the page changinin the same as it currently is even though we now have more sub forum this will be 56k freindly


re: the seperation in agora is due to being easier on u admins

ulitmately the most active will be the general then the polls, Report problems i think is good beacuse it won't get lost in all the other stuff and same with suggestion\ideas we wont have to bump topics as much to be seen

re: yappa

your right,steam has become stable so we can dump that
and so to spam

RE: doc n imaging

righty u r once again

Do people still play WON Listen servers?
If so, there should at least be a steam sub-category under Yappa/Half-Life & HL1 Mods/Non-Steam
???

Is the difference between Steam a non-steam so huge that it requires a separate forum for each ?

Anyway, HL2 is out, it's high time to move on. If nobody sees anything else to say, tomorrow I'll post a new thread for the final vote.

P.S. What does "YappA" mean ?

I will make it, once the new layout has been decided. It can be a drop-down menu, or anything. A drop-down menu would be simpler. Just tell what you'd prefer...

Listen, just an idea from the top of my head: How 'bout changing the colours a little bit? This magenta and blue tones are so... "unlively", if ya know what I mean...
