Post Animeboards Restructure

This is not an addition to John's many threads about 'The Great Revival!', just a request of Eva2k and admins/mods.
There are many unused forums and sub-forums that seem to be cluttering the entire website, many of which are hardly ever used (the Perfect Dark forum is my hidden home where I keep asking if people still play the game...)
Maybe a restructure of the forum culture would bring current posters closer together and new members feel more acknowledged when more people can find/respond to their questions and queries.

Many forums can be dumped and archived cleaning the appearance of the site itself and then being easier to navigate. I usually wouldn't type so much but I felt this was an important issue to share.
This is no demand, and I understand the kind of work it takes to make an idea like this happen so if it's restructured GREAT!, if not then this thread never happened

This is a brilliant, brilliant idea. One of the best! . A fantastic little tactic that would surely boost activity by making AnimeBoards appear more lively. A suggestion that is reminiscent of that seen in my SWOT analysis last year (http://www.animeboards.com/showpost....postcount=15):

Quote:
1. Ruthlessly cut down the number of sub-forums as a temporary measure to concentrate posting activity within fewer forums, thus leading to the impression of a more lively board. For example, cut down the number of anime sub-forums to 1 or 2. There is always the option of adding back sub-forums once there is enough activity to justify this.

Many people had this idea, including myself back when E2k was canvassing opinion on it. It's in his hands now.

If that's the case, nothing will get done.

Excellent, this great idea is supported by the mods as well! . As I said, Pen2, great minds think alike!

Do not fear BK. I have yet to implement my arsenal of new, as yet secret, strategies. When there's life, there's hope. .

Annoy everybody twice as hard? That won't work. You need a newer more secretive super strategy.

I understand why he wouldn't want to mess with the site. Seems like such as pain in the ass for such little gain. You can always trust someone to do it for you but there's no telling what they could do with software they don't understand, destroy the board even.
