    Hi everyone, we have been discussing changing the forum layout, and this is what we've come up with, where ----> indicates a sub forum:

    Iron Maiden
    Maiden Chat
    -->Make Your Own Setlist (new subforum for those shit setlist threads)
    Solo / Side Project Discussion
    Song and Album Commentaries
    -->current sub folders
    Other Music
    Music Discussion
    -->Musician Discussion
    -->Tab Archive
    General
    General Discussion
    Community
    Forum Games
    Can I Play With Madness?
    -->Meaningless Polls (rename of current polls forum)
    Trade Forum
    Forum Help

    I think this will help de-clutted Maiden Chat, we can put games on the main level and get all the smattering of games in one place, and also reduce the amount of stuff on the front page. That said, I'd love your input and thoughts!

    I like it but I would put Shit Setlists and Meaningless Polls next to each other in Madness :D

    And we're also not accepting Album Elimination threads etc into the Forum Games, that should remain in Madness too :p

    While you're at it, I would suggest a Live Albums / DVD's / BluRay's subforum in the commentary section as well.

    I think a greater discussion needs to happen regarding the future of games - but that's a different topic.

    Will threads along the lines of "3 favourite songs from Album X apart from the most popular song" go there too?

    Yes, hence "meaningless".

    Will the aesthetics of the site be changing too or just the layout of threads?

    Layout. We don't have any control at this time over aesthetics.

    To be honest, the front page needs work before we work on the forum itself.

    While you're at it, can you also ask Jon to add these emoticons?

    Oh yeah, here’s something that would be beneficial, I think: letting everyone edit their own polls. Since non-mods host forum games sometimes, it would be helpful if even they can edit their things without the help of a moderator.

    I believe we tried to do this but the forum software doesn’t allow it. I think that’s at least partially why @Night Prowler and I were made moderators in the first place. I could be remembering wrong though.

    Until now I was unaware that you are a moderator, Mosh. :lol:

    Yeah, I checked old PM's from that time and only mods can edit polls, not regular users.

    Time to make us all mods. :ninja:
