Ahhh... well after something like three hours in a Skype vidioconference, Azhrei and I worked out and put into place the new structure for the "UserCreations" part of the forums. (Thanks for the work and patience Azhrei!)
The final structure didn't change from what I had proposed (and reported in the "THE FOURTH AGE COMETH" thread") except:
- We've added a "help request" sub-forum appropriately titled "Requests for HELLLLP!"
- Each sub forum will have a directory thread very similar to the one for frameworks found in "User Creations/Campaign Frameworks".
- NEW threads can only be started in the "User Creations" forum, but not in the sub/sub-sub forums. You can post in EXISTING threads!
Basically, after you've searched all the other sub and sub-sub forums for an answer - you go here. To help make your search easier the directory threads will actually exist "User Creations" with a shadow topic in the appropriate sub forum. To manage all this I (and maybe sometimes Azhrei) will be regularly checking User Creations for new threads and moving where they should go.
Our hope is that in the long run the sub and sub-sub forums will be nice, clean, and every thread right on topic to that location. We want people to look at the structure of User Creations and be able to zero right in on the answer. The structure and decisions we've made are based on actually going through the entire User Creations area looking at what was to be found where.
Getting everything moved and organized and listed into directories is huge undertaking and thus is going to be a *long* process. Please bear with us and keep the feedback coming.
