Forums - Announcements - The Truck Stop - Website Development Updates - Keyboard navigation, yes or no?

Would you enjoy the forums having keyboard navigation (J/K to move up and down a post)?

I'd like that A LOT!
It would be nice to have
I don't think I'd use it
Not really

I've read that there's an ignore user function now. Supposedly it can be accessed by hovering over a member's username in the forums? But I see no other options than the usual ones.

You have to be a supporter to get access to the feature.

Edit: ninja'd by platina.

I've got a suggestion. I'm sure someone else has already suggested this before, but for reinforcement:

I think that we should be able to post threads onto multiple discussion forums. Not all threads definitively belong in a single discussion topic.

Hypothetical example: Let's say I want to post the very first trailer for the new Zelda movie. It's a movie trailer, right? By that logic, it belongs in Movies Discussion. But the thread most certainly is going to be more imporant to Nintendo fans. That's the reason why the movie is a big deal, because it's based off of a beloved Nintendo IP. So by that logic, the thread belongs in Nintendo Discussion as well as Movies Discussion. However, I'm forced to choose one, when it belongs in both.

Made a bet with barneystinson69 (and so did LipeJJ) that Wii U will reach 15m sold before XB1 reaches 30m.

My personal suggestion for this?

Remove the Movies sub-forum, along with all other sub-forums that could very easily go under a single "Off Topic" forum.

We have too many subs as things stand, we need to go simple.

You're just saying that because of the countless threads you (and other mods) have had to move to a different sub-forum. Kappa

I agree with this suggestion. Something like that should have happened a long while ago imo.

Normally, I would say more categories are better, but I actually think this is a good idea

Take Wikianswers for example (weird, I know) That site has wayy too many categories and is impossible to categorize things properly and very difficult to manage. The single umbrella category would cover all of these topics since the ratio of game threads to non-game threads is big

Nintendo Metascore | Official NintenDomination | VGC Tutorial Thread

              

 

 

Here lies the hidden threads. 

 | | | Best and Worst of Miiverse | Manga Discussion Thead |
[3DS] Winter Playtimes [Wii U]

ugh, since everyone is saying they hate the multiple categories I feel I need to jump in here and say I love them.

Compare this to a site like gaf which has gaming and off topic and that's it. I fucking hate that! You can't find shit that you want. Whether a thread on a topic you're looking for is in the list or not is pretty much pure luck depending on how recently someone has posted in it.

I love that VGC categorises things. Granted most of the time I just look at latest topics. But when I want a particular thread I know where I can find it. If I want football thread I click sports discussion. When I want the anime or Supernatural thread I click movies discussion. When I want one of the nation threads I click on the appropriate section. It's simple and easy and I like that.

Take that away and what are my options? Either constantly spam the threads I want to keep looking at so they stay on my buddy or just give up on them completely? Not exactly a great set of options now is it?

I think you should take what kapi said and not even consider merging them.

But often times when you try to find a specific thread, you have to search over a few different categories because people don't always post in the correct ones.

You can click on the buddy to see all of the threads you've posted in. You don't have to spam to keep threads in it.

 

I also think fewer categories would be better.

The categories we have now are fine. This setup also allows people to use filters and eliminate certain discussions from their Hot Topics list easily. Most of the Off-Topic subforums have not much activity as far as new threads go, but that's still better than merging them together and have politics drown out everything else.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
