    If I may, perhaps the sub-sections in the Anbu Central should arranged like...
    Anbu Central
    • Academy Registration
    • Questions and Complaints
    • The Konoha Times
    • Contest Central
    These are arranged by the number of discussions in that section, arranged from most to the least, indicating that the number of discussions there = higher amount of activity.

    Perhaps the rest of the sub-sections in each of the main sections could be arranged like this?

    Sorry for the double post, but can anyone here provide input on Jayjay (and mine)'s proposals regarding forum organization?

    Is there a specific reason for why the sub-sections here are arranged as it is, or is it done randomly?

    I like the thought of clearing up front page real estate, but I wonder if that would be a little bit too bare.

    The top level would look like:

    Anbu Central
    - Konoha Times
    - Q&C
    - CC
    - Academy Registration

    Naruto Avenue

    One Piece Avenue

    Akihabara District
    - MHA
    - The Promised Neverland
    - Dragon Ball
    - Black Clover
    - Nanatsu no Taizai
    - Weeb Lounge

    Downtown Konoha
    - Mafia
    - Off Topic Lounge
    - Fanclubs
    - Entertainment
    - Outskirts Battledome
    - Roleplaying Forum
    - Konoha Ad Board

    Plenty of anime tops at the front page, but very little of anything else.

    Should probably place Konoha Ad Board + Roleplaying Forum above Outskirts Battledome since they are integral to the site here (unlike OBD, which is just a sub-section + the staff generally don't make final decisions based on the topics that are mainly discussed on there, I think)?

    Are the anime tops arranged in a specific way (popularity, #of threads), or did you just arrange them randomly?

    I don't think which forum is above which one is really as big of a deal as everyone makes it. How high up something =/= how important it is.
    Also, that's a bad argument for Ad Board is more important than OBD lol

    Alright. Just wanted to ask about the reasons for arranging the sections + sub-sections for the site here.

    @Reznor Perhaps you should ask input from other staff regarding your/jayjay’s proposals and see if they can make alternative suggestions?

    @Trinity
    *Are you okay with jayjay's proposals on how this site/forum and its sections should be organized?
    *How about Reznor's proposals?
    Well, I initially thought that if a section of a forum here is important (or popular), it should be brought up in priority since that section is the one that visitors are most likely to head on over to first. It's because it's the first sub-section that catches their eye in that particular section of the forum.

    I'll be honest, I don't want to address all the rest today in long TL;DRs. I just noticed something that's doable that won't raise much fuss in the differing opinion's on NF and staff and start with that for now.

    I'll try to get back to this, but my long-term image would definitely be shortening the front page and give some of the categories thematic sense that don't have any to begin with.
