As some folks know, Azheri and I have been working on ways to improve and better organize the entire "User Creations" section of the MT Forums. The first step was the "MT Framework Directory" in the framework (FW) sub-forum. This lead to the realization that most of the FW threads were actually up in the main UserCreations forum, not in the FW sub-forum.
A bit if PMing back and forth, discussing forum and user needs, and estimated workload, we've come up with what we feel is a fairly good yet simple set up. (see below).
A big part of this project is *not* creating more work for any of the existing admins/moderators as well as not just suddenly having things change - move - vanish without warning.
So, starting today I'll begin moving threads from UserCreations into the appropriate sub/sub-sub (child/grandchild?) forum. Since I am no fan of leaving placeholders the threads will seem to have 'vanished', but just go looking for where you think they would go (the sub-forums all have good descriptions). Anything that might fit in two places I'll make my best guess on.
The end goal I think everyone will like - every sub-forum of the UserCreations section will have a directory thread to help people quickly find what they are looking for *before* posting the ever popular *does anyone know where...?" threads. They are ok but why make people hunt and search with little chance of success?
Everyone is welcome to PM me with, or post, comments/suggestions/critiques etc.
