Hey guys,

Some of you may have noticed that I have been reshuffling the forums around and moving topics from one sub-forum to another to hopefully make them easier to find.

If you have any suggested sub-forums that you would like to have created then please let me know.

Cheers, Glen :)

Hello Glen.

May I be bold and say I preferred the first page when it had only four sections.
I think a couple of the present six are redundant.

Perhaps you could combine Melb Life with Melb Events.
Same goes for Melb Services with Melb Visitors.
Hmmmmm watd'yathink?

As you may guess I'm a fan of less is more!

May I jump deeper into the hole and say I would prefer less subsections.
Seems to be some repetition in this area? Yes? No?

Well I hope the above is not a hanging offence?

Best wishes.
Peter J.

Hi peter,

I agree that less can be more! The problem I had was that new members would keep asking the same questions over and over (e.g. which suburb to live in) so I am trying to better group previous conversations together.

That said, i agree that the structure of the forum needs more work.

I have had a dilemma over how the "melbourne events" section should work since we end up with, for example, a "sports" section here and then another "sports" section under "melbourne life". This seems like duplication but really one is meant for upcoming events and the other is not. I could merge the two I guess.

I will stew on this for a week or so and come back fresh and decide how to best improve the layout.

Your comments are very welcome.

Cheers, Glen

Hello Glen.

Hey man you shoulda waited for more feedback!
One person's views are not to be followed instantly.
Anyway I shall have a look at the "new" arrangement soon.

Best wishes.
Peter.

Hahahaha. I was already thinking down that path. You just tipped me over the edge! :) I want to avoid duplication as much as possible.
