Given that it looks like we're going to continue to grow the number of LG forums, can we please move the ones currently positioned below them so that they're above them?---otherwise we'll have to scroll and scroll to see them.

Not gonna do't.(he said in the Dana Carvey "George Bush" voice) Laughing You see, nobody else can see those forums but you, I, and the few other folks who have Mod/Admin status(which is actually quite a few). Anybody with such a viewing status will just have to "suffer", and have to "scroll a bit more", until those forums are officially opened. Razz

Of course, once those forums go live, which will be soon, everyone will be forced to "suffer". Laughing It is possible that a few adjustments will be made after the forums have been live for while, but that will depend on a few things.

Like how often those forums are viewed/referenced. Shocked

Yes, Allan, I'm one of the few who must "suffer" with you! Laughing Laughing Laughing

But I really don't mind. Wink

Precisely. Otherwise, everything will likely stay where it is, as the forums below these are less trafficked or not as pertinent to the greater GH community. Nothing is set in stone though.

I am in agreement with Allan and Tony, the forums below LG need to move up. Can the LG forums not be coslidated under LIVING GREYHAWK and then have sub-forums under the parent directory.

I was able to do this with my forum plugin that I used for a joomla site

Example Forum Structure I used.

- Rule Systems
------------------x OD&D
------------------x D&D
------------------x AD&D
------------------x AD&D 2.0
------------------x D&D 3.x
------------------x Pathfinder
- Campaigns
---------------x Forgotten Realms
---------------x Greyhawk
-----------------------------xx Geography
-----------------------------xx History
-----------------------------xx Weather
-----------------------------xx Places of Interest
-----------------------------xx Important NPCs
---------------x Ravenloft
---------------x Spelljammer
- main forum
x - sub forum parent
xx - sub forum branch

If you use a tree structure, your forum structure is contained and is far better managed.

You are preaching to the choir, but the forum structure here currently only has two levels, so main forum and sub-forum only. A third tier would allow for what you describe, which I agree would be imminently better. I'll ask Gary about upgrading things.
