Less Forums?

My request is that AB have less forums. Yep, I think less forums would cause less forum spam. No more "I'll keep this forum alive by asking questions that don't really mean anything to anyone including myself." A few forums for the staple animes like Kenshin, DB, Eva, and a few other select animes, and then the lovely general forum would probably be nice. I am frightened to enter some of the other forums to try and find a diamond thread amongst all the rubbish. Also, what makes an anime deserving of its own forum anyway? surely not popularity, because a few of the forums look quite erm...empty. could the standard be anime quality? ::laf::

I could go on about this all day...

if you find rule breaking off topic threads in a forum you can use the report post button within the offending thread to get mods or admin to remove the post/thread

well, i think if some series are popular enough, they get an own forum, though there might not be too much traffic!
one problem might be that some series are really short, like furi kuri, which only contains 6 episodes.

i have to agree, that some of the forums are pretty much loaded with old topics and things that have been said more than a dozen times, but if you dont feel like posting in one of these forums, dont go there. i was quite active in the db forum for a long time, but these days are over and it is very nice to get some ne animes and post in the smaller forums.

I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE A ONE PIECE FORUM, CAUSE IT IS A GREAT SERIES AND IT NEEDS MORE ATTENTION AND AN OWN FORUM WULD BE GREAT.

thats another advantage of an own forum, the series get more attention and people can ask others what they think about it. imagine what would happen if all these threads would pop up in the general anime forum.....

Hahahhaha
spiking your posts with One Piece subliminal Propeganda now,.. eh' bish...

anyways regarding the main topic i think that if anything we should take a group vote and "replace" certain boards out there that have nothing but tumbleweeds and crickets lurking within them....

I agree that something's have been talked to death but supressing disscusion altogether could very well ruin the whole purpose of this message board....

personaly i think if you want to get rid of spam get rid of the General Non Anime Discussion forum.... *gets the sh*t beat out of him by a mob of angry chit chat spammers*

oh and before i go.... I REALLY WOULD LIKE TO SEE A ONE PIECE FORUM, CAUSE IT IS A GREAT SERIES AND IT NEEDS MORE ATTENTION AND AN OWN FORUM WULD BE GREAT.

Some forums, although not popular, are the only reason why some people stay here... And becuase they come here to post in that forum, they also post in other forums while they are here...

Take, for example, the Berserk forum. It isn't really popular but it's the only anime forum I post in lately. If it wasn't there I might get bored and leave.

Also, some forums need time to get popular. When I joined, the Cowboy Bebop forum had less than 30 posts but it slowly grew and more discussion was formed. I think the Berserk forum will experience a similar growth eventually. Especially with the release of the DVDs.

But some people need to work to make a forum popular. Good discussion starts from good posts. I've seen quite a few of the anime series that have forums here but the reason I haven't posted in all the forums is because nobody is creating any good discussion. I would do it myself but unfortunately I can only work on one forum at a time.

I only post in LH and OMG... but lately both of them have been severely lacking... so I've been lurking around and reading in some of the other areas.

I know that some of my friends who are regular on other boards find AB to be a bit too big... I think one of em find it OK... I"m prolly the only one whos gotten used to the size to the board. The way I see it, its eva2ks board... let him do what he want to it... as long as this place doesn't go away I could care less how many more forums get added on.

Replace boards, maybe. Eliminate boards, maybe. Take a group vote....doubtful

Your right though, only a majority of all the boards are justified.

It's annoying when you have to wait a day or so for someone to stumble upon a post of yours. However, do we want Animeboards to become a chat room (posting style)? George don't seem too curious so things will probably stay as they are, with the occasional anime forum addition.

Simply spoken to me by the Hand of Eva2000 himself…

He will not delete any of the forums… Although this seems to have been broken because of the "Political and serious topic forum: We once had after the 9/11 attack on the States…
