heh, the sociologist kids are gonna scream that skeet wants to gender hondos (moreso). but turning syndrome into mantown might be an idea.

 

so wait, pimp hand eats Hon(DOS) and becomes links, pc & tech talk, then?

opposite. Hon(dos) the little fish eats the big old dusty whatever. Break up the Pimp Hand into whatever respective forums those threads can go(ie hot chicks to a man forum), maybe have a links subforum, but for the most part put Hon(dos) on a greater stage, combining tech, non-gaming PC, gadgetry and whatnot.

 

To address FC getting the man forum, it makes sense since 1) fuck all chicks post in FC thanks to DA8 and 2) the sports forum can suck my dong(thanks for the suggestion anyways, traitor DOJ). I leave it alone and it can leave me alone.

This is becoming needlessly complicated. Skeet if hon(dos) goes pro and gets it own forum including all consumer electronics, gadget news etc I reckon it will get a a very steady stream of traffic. Pretty much anything on the main page with a singular kind of function gets decent face time.

 

Would a new name be necessary to avoid confusion?

Like the Pimp Hand? This is the idea- consolidate two low-earners that way the whole layout isn't getting fucked with.

 

Wait- does weird science have it's own forum proper? When did that happen?

no modship till we nail down the place's purpose.

i agree that pimp hand's slow these days, but its bascially old links and the pornhouse if were being honest. i dont see those crossing into a tech-talk/toys forum so easily, though one could eat the other as its sub-forum? i dunno. i do like consolidating, though.

 

ps skeet - science came around last year. like culture, its not jumping, but its important enough to warrant its own house, i think.

I reckon many of the things in pimp hand could go into other forums. flash and links could go into hon(dos) and titties etc could go into one of the redundant branches of fight club like skeet said.

Nintendorks can't be renamed, nor does it need to be consolidated. Aside from Poli/Culture & the obvious gathering/sqaure forums, it's a large staple. Bricks will be shat before this is over. Why must it be so difficult?

I'm so confused. Are we now talking about adding a separate subforum to Hon(dos) to Nintendorks when the initial question was a separate Forum for all these things? If this thing really warrants expansion, I... I swear, I could swear that I put forth an idea that like, 10 people have agreed with. I'm not taking the piss, it's just, well here's how it is in my head:

 

Question: We want a tech forum because somehow Hon(dos) can't handle more PC talk & Weird Science doesn't communicate Home Theatres. On a side note, Hon(dos) does so little traffic between Skeeter begging for help with Utorrent & Dr G talking about her Zune, that it is literally bursting at the seams.

 

And I thought my response went something like:So you want to expand a forum that does fuck-all traffic because you feel it's too specific for tangents like Home Theatres & PC support & PC gaming? Well instead of creating a new forum, fucking up the outlay of the Hondos page* and having another main forum not get used? Why not combine it, or even just have it take over the Pimp Hand since 1) the Pimp hand does nothing except Hot Chicks now, and 2) The Pimp hand was originally designated as a links & netspeak forum, so it kinda(to me) makes sense.

 

I'll admit my talk of a separate men's forum in FC to funnel the perve threads into confused a few people, so forget I mentioned that for the moment and let's focus on the task at hand, yes?

 

*(admittedly a minor thing, I didn't even notice Weird Sci pop up but nonetheless, on a moderating note & also from an accessibility perspective? The more forums you create for the main page has gotta create more headaches for keeping track of, not to mention yes, choice is good, but even right now new people coming to the joint have next to no idea how to navigate this shit and no FAQ in the world will help with that, not to mention if Leaky Bucket or KOS were to rock up(the candles will one day work) they're not gonna recognise the place and that then discourages posting. To wrap it all up in one statement for those not following this rant: Too many forums is not user-friendly.

i was only trying to be helpful, Hon(dos) is shane's baby after all isn't it.

i do agree though, Hon(dos) don't get that much traffic, so i don't think we'd actually need another forum,

cos we can put it all i nthere

Sorry man, that wasn't aimed at you. Everyone's all over the place with this thing. I don't even have a stake in this. I, just like you, am trynna be helpful.

still gotta mull this over: i see what skeet's saying, there's a common thread between PC/tech talk, and if we could just have pimp hand worked into there, we'd be killing 3 birds with one stone. mebbe Pimp Hand becomes the subby of the PC & tech-talk, if nothing else?

 

and i know what youre saying about the new houses being cluttering after a while/less user-friendly at a glance, but truth is, we're active enough to warrant talk about large things like science, so if my options are 1) another ghetto subforum/land of the lost or 2) add to the place with one more tab that clearly says what lies within, im gonna have faith in the noobs.

Well its just a matter of consolidation at this stage and expanding the definition of an existing forum. Maybe just go the simple route and let hon(dos) get a spot on the front page and see how it works out. Trial and error, my friend!
