Topic: New Layout?
Posted By: MariaS
Subject: New Layout?
Date Posted: 21/September/2015 at 04:31
I was looking at a thread where people got to talking about a new layout.  If you don't mind, I came up with one.  Now whether you want to use it or not is entirely up to you.  

WWE
Subforums:
Raw
SmackDown
NXT
Main Event
(any others I may have missed.  I don't have WWE Network so I may have missed some.)

NON WWE ORGANIZATIONS:
TNA
ROH
(any others?)

Not quite sure how to title this one but I'm in the U.S. so I chose this:
INTERNATIONAL WRESTLING
British
Quebec
Puroresa

OLD SCHOOL
1) I think Wrestlers of the World could go under here but the deal is a lot of the topics under this are current stars.  Why not have a Current Wrestlers of the World and then Classic Wrestlers of the World?
2) What about Old School/Former Companies under here?  (ECW, AWA, etc.?)

CREATIVE ZONE
A Writer's Perspective
Main Event Radio 

GENERAL SPORT
Football (soccer to me)
NFL
MLB
NHL
NBA
MMA
TENNIS
(whatever else you'd like to add)

ENTERTAINMENT
Music
Television
Film

GAMING
General
Retro

CONNECTIONS/GENERAL CHAT
or just separate the two

MEDIA
PRIVATE

STAFF
SUGGESTIONS & QUESTIONS 


I did not take anything away that is already on here.  I just made it into sections.  It's your board so if you want to use this, you are welcome to.  If you don't, that is fine too.

Funny, the site went down that night right after you posted this. I thought maybe Webby was going ahead with your changes or something. :p

Part of me wants to say add NJPW, AAA, and Lucha Underground because these are easily the next most popular promotions aside from TNA, ROH, and WWE, but you're probably counting NJPW under Puroresu and AAA could probably be counted under a Lucha Libre category.

Personally, I would broaden British and Quebec by making them Europe and Canada respectively.
Wouldn't hurt to add a US Independent category here as well, not to mention the aforementioned Lucha.

Just been looking at the layout and it needs a bit of updating, here's a few suggestions from me.....

General WWE, Raw and Smackdown Live of course are fine, Superstars needs to be removed and NXT really should just have its own exclusive section as at this point it's very much a third brand and will get far more discussion than TNA and ROH which both have their own sections. It might be worth merging TNA and ROH but I guess it's worth keeping them separate to see what the future holds for them both.

I would remove Main Event Radio and Quebec Wrestling, dead pointless sections.

Introduce a WWE Network section, so much content to discuss as well as chat on general Network use etc.

Think the rest of the forum is fine, not so sure we need a Wrestlers of the World section as topics on individual wrestlers can easily be merged into the other sections. I would maybe drop British wrestling and just have a International section which as well as Brit can include Japan and other non US stuff.

Agree with getting NXT on it's own as it really is the third brand. You could get Superstars and 205 live under the General WWE discussion banner.

I would keep TNA/ROH as it is but perhaps look into just having the rest of the Indy/International scene under one section.

I agree with removing some of the dead stuff as if we're trying to entice new members, we need to be showing active forums.

Rest is fine, though I would look at re-writing the Staff Announcements description haha. When was the last time Mr Willy was online?

Suggestions taken on board and i'll change them bit by bit because it took long enough to move all Superstars related threads into General WWE unless i've missed any still lurking in the new NXT only section LOL Changed the section write up.

Removed the name of Willy from our Suggestions write up and demoted him from moderator to just a PB member because he's not signed in for over two years and his Facey is dead so dunno where he is or what's happened to him.

Will get around to the rest like a 205 sub forum in General WWE and getting rid of some other sections like Main Event Radio and putting it into a General Wrestling section.

Dead sections for different types of wrestling have been made sub forums in General Wrestling.

All the Main Event Radio topics are in General Wrestling as normal topics and that forum section deleted.

Will still make a 205 Live sub forum in General WWE so people can find the threads easier in that section.

Suggestion - why not make 205 Live a sub forum of Raw as that is the brand the Cruiserweights are attached to.

Removing the dead sections is smart as when newbies come to a forum and see non existent sections it's off putting. Giving NXT a stand alone section is a good move too as the brand has a very strong following among the internet community.
Another little change might be to rename the ECW sub forum in the General WWE section as ECW and WCW as both companies are now WWE owned although in fairness all chat relating to those companies could easily be part of a WWE Network section.

I still think a WWE Network section is the way forward.

Reading through the descriptions could "Connections" and "Introduce Yourself" be merged are both mention introducing yourself/member announcements so kind of makes sense.

However it looks a lot fresher now which is awesome.

Sorted the 205 Live sub forum and if it gets enough activity to warrant a full forum that can easily be changed.

Putting all the Superstars threads in General WWE one by one was the most time consuming part.

Could always start more WWE Network exclusive content show threads to see if a section about the Network would be active enough.

Right now I dont this there is enough to warrant it. Overall there ought to be more than enough though. The problem I see with the WWE Network is that Vince seems to do very little in the way of follow-up. Where is season to of Edge and Christian? Wheres Breaking Ground? Where Swerved S3? Where are the episodes following Holy Foley E5? There hasn't been new non wrestling content added in quite a while except for that interview show with Heyman and JBL. They need to find a way to be more regular with these shows. Because right now there is.nothing you can depend on airing regularly on the WWE Network except for NXT and 205 live.

I really think the theme of this forum needs to be updated.

There seems to be a recent influx of activity and i think it would be far higher if the site was a bit more modern and not looking like a 15 year old forum that everyone has forgotten about

Is it possible we could help with the redesign?

The forum software is limited with what can be done in terms of themes I know that much.

Even a freshen up would do - change of colours and change of banner and then it doesn’t look as dated

Hmmm, I slapped this banner together if y'all want to use it! It's cropped but if you go to it's source you'll get the full size.

What do you suggest? We are always open to ideas.

A new banner could be good but the only time we've ever had a wrestler on was Christian when our URL used to be The Unprettier dot com. I think it works without any wrestler on it.

I have sent Love Song Writer a message about this thread, as he's always been a great help with banners.

To be honest - whether or not there’s a wrestler or just something else wrestling related - even a wrestling title belt indunno .. just something wrestling related - that looks modern would be great .

The orange and grey colours need to go

So a banner change and a colour change would just liven it up a bit - not being picky and the forum has obviously done well to last so long but just thinking of how it could be adjusted slightly to maybe attract more users and the first thing people do is judge something on how it looks

Only suggestion I have is to sort out the thread list in the forums. I don't know if it's just me but the most recently replied threads should always be at the top for ease of navigation and it doesn't do this.

That has to do with too many stickied threads. You DO get used to it, but I understand where you're coming from. It can be confusing sometimes because there are sometimes half a page of stickied threads.

Yeah it's to keep relevant topics high up, but if a reply comes in them I always unsticky.
 
Been told a few times from folks on Twitter when they have browsed for something they can't find it even though it's a current thing. Think it's more because they are too lazy to click for the next page of results.
 
We need Devilkin back posting because he used to post up the latest articles/videos in the relevant threads all the time. He'd have won a POTM award.
