    Cameron Resorting Forum Folders, Simplifying the Home Page

    What's up, GateWorlders!?

    I've missed you so. I have continued to keep an eye on the goings-on around these parts under the "GateWorld" user account, but (while I was hunting for a password) realized that I have not posted under my own name in some time.

    You might know that some exciting Stargate news is coming this Thursday during the Comic-Con panel. Keep an eye on GateWorld -- we'll have the whole scoop for you before the panel has even ended!

    The other big news from me (which you may have picked up on it you follow @GateWorld on Twitter) is that I am neck-deep in getting GateWorld ready to relaunch. I've been working on GateWorld "3.0" off and on for several years ... and now it's nearly ready for you to see.

    That's going to include a new look for GateWorld Forum.

    Don't worry -- there won't be any massive changes. Everything in the thread reading and posting interface stays the same; what changes is the wrap-around template skin.

    But to get ready for that, the most immediate change is that I am going to re-sort some of our discussion folders in an attempt to simplify the forum home page (which is currently quite a long scroll, which can be overwhelming for newbies).

    The main area of focus will be all the non-Stargate shows under the Sci-Fi Stream category. They will all still be there, but we'll sort them into folders (based on what is currently airing and what's no longer in production).

    I hope everyone understands that this isn't intended to be a slight against anyone's favorite show, or to make these more difficult to find, but only to make it easier for newcomers to approach GateWorld Forum and decide to join our little family.

    Hopefully, after Thursday comes and goes, we'll start to see more newcomers to greet and show some of that famous Gater hospitality!

    If Darren is reorganizing the forum something tells me it will be something big. Or I'm being over-optimistic.

    I'm not going to make a big fuss, and I certainly understand the rationale that's driven the decision, but I really don't like the newly-condensed Current Shows look. Now I can't see at a glance whether anything is new since last time I was in. Surely there's a better solution, like condensing shared universes (ie Arrowverse) onto a single page, or to make it a collapsed tree by default.

    Heretical thought: there has been no new Stargate for six years now, perhaps some of its subforums should be scrapped/condensed instead?

    Also, I had no idea Stargate news was coming soon. That's very exciting!

    Looking forward to see the changes

    And new SG news? I hope we will hear a lot about it here becase this is the only place I find the most informative information always

    Did something change already -- cause I'm still seeing the old lay-out...

    Though, my starting point is "My Controls" anyway so I wouldn't notice either way, I guess.

    Still curious how the new layout will look

    Upon closer inspection, there is indeed movement.
    But I probably wouldn't have noticed it, if this hadn't popped up -- shows how much attention I pay to the homepage of the forum.

    I just realized something: does this mean you're doing away with the light blue?

    2nd this

    My only other suggestion would be moving the political\religious threads out of OT and into their own area or maybe a sub folder inside of Off-Topic similar to the Season areas for various shows. I'd love a better way to avoid the constant bickering and I know some members really get upset about it.

    If you don't open the threads, you don't know what's inside. And therefor are by default avoiding their contents.

    The titles pretty much give their contents away, and the bickering -- that can only be changed by those who post in the aforementioned threads (yours truly included).
