Hey everybody,

I've been thinking the past few days about ways to cleanup the forum some. Nothing major, just got a few ideas on how to make things a little more organized and neater.

I wanted to open a thread and see what everybody else thought. If you have any ideas, post em!

Find a way to get more feedback in the music section!

We never really got an official list of the music we wanted to use lol

We could always convert the All-Stars music, and after we release a demo ask people what music we should use. Might get somebody to make us custom tracks, who knows?

One of the ideas I had was changing the custom content section names, from menus / textures / music / backgrounds to
layout / object / Sound / Stage / WorldMap. That way it would be more intuitive where the files go in the ISO, and there would be a clear place to put everything. Only problem would be that Cover Art would be odd in the bunch.

Also thinking about redoing the Download Center, so that there is one topic for everything in Retro Remix, and other topics that have collections of files. Like, there would be topics for Super Mario Bros 1 / Super Mario Bros 2 / Super Mario Bros 3 / Super Mario Bros Special / Super Mario Land, and a Retro Remix topic.

Lastly, thinking about collapsing the game discussion and game levels categories together, so each game is listed once on the home page. Debating the best way to do it, or if it is better to leave them separate Razz

Here's a sample forum I made to show some of my ideas: http://qwerty123.forumotion.com/

Opinions?

I think the test page looks much more organized and intuitive, good job.
On the backgrounds page it would be nice if there were screenshots of the backgrounds. And also maybe a spot for some gameplay videos so people can see how f'n'cool this game is. Just my two pennies.

There, just rearranged / renamed a few things on the forum. The game discussion is nested underneath each game. Hope it doesn't go overlooked.

I like the idea of having a place for videos. Not sure where to put it, or what to name it though. We do have some videos within the level topics, but they are oooooooooooooold.

EDIT: I don't know why, but having blue / white links on the mainpage looks bad to me. Do you know if there is a way to make only the links on the main page not change colors once clicked?
