    New forum layout

    Hey guys. Im planning on consolidating the forums due to being bloated. I plan on removing smite pc, smite console, and mac forums.

    Heres the changes i plan on (i plan on removing some forums, like the expo viewing party forum). This is a rough draft, and nothing is finalized.

    Before i do any large changes, i figured i'd get comments from you guys as well.


    This layout will get rid of 12 forums in total, most of them parent forums (we'll be going from 27 parent forums and 7 categories to 17 parent forums and 3 categories)

    Official
    --- News And Announcements
    ------- PC News
    ------- Console News
    --- Bug Reporting (with pc, mac, xbox, and ps4 prefixes)
    --- Technical support
    ------- Pc
    ------- Mac
    ------- Ps4
    ------- Xbox
    --- Smite Tactics
    ------- Questions / Asking For Keys
    --- Forum Specific
    ------- Forum Announcements
    ------- Forum Help

    Community
    --- Introduce yourself
    --- General smite discussion
    ------- Playing Now
    --- Strategy and Gameplay
    --- Competitive Discussion (with pc and console prefixes)
    ------- ESport events (with console and pc prefixes)
    --- Looking For Group
    ------- Pc
    ------- Xbox
    ------- Ps4
    --- Art and Media
    ------- Cosplay
    ------- Community Content
    ------- Official content Discussion
    ------- God and Skin Concepts

    Suggestions and Feedback
    --- God feedback
    --- Item feedback
    --- Misc feedback
    --- Console feedback
    --- Mac feedback

    I still see no need for the reddit-repost bot to be back on the forums when Reddit is already more popular than the forums. Ponpon disabled it and everything was fine without it. If people want to see things from reddit than they should visit the reddit itself, no need for a bot.

    However I do feel like there needs to be a Console General Discussion as PC/Console are never on the same patch.

    The SmiteReddit bot is annoying, because it pops up on the most-recent of the subforum, which makes me wonder if there's actually new forum posts in the general discussion.

    Kaostic disabled it. It was somehow reactivated during the time that PonPon was the community manager. I know this, because I asked about it a few days after it was reactivated. And he said...

    Basically this, if you join them there will be even more discussion than if they were split, so yeah, it would be great.

    @gong, I asked for it to be re enabled, and so it was. My idea is that it'll give people who like both spaces ease of access. These forums are dead my man. I'm simply trying in my own way to get the forum more active.

    One of the ways to do that is condensing the forums and funneling topics into less subforums. If we need to branch out later, then we will.

    If you really don't like the smite reddit bot, you can simply add it to your ignore list via settings. Should stop you from seeing updates.

    I've also got a (hopefully) 10 week long event lined up for the forums. (More information coming Wednesday)

    @Goobis, I'd double check the Smite console GD. All I really see is complaints that "Console isn't like PC". aka, not a lot of discussion anywho.


    Edit : Made a minor tweak to the forum layout idea. (Moving things into the "Official" category)

    Edit 2: Made another minor tweak (Moving reddit reposts out into its own parent forum in the "Community" Category)

    Get rid of G&G private subforums, add more subforums for Smite Tactics,

    Merge Forum Announcements and Forum Help to and call it something Forum related (Description : News and announcements regarding the forums. If you require assistance with something forum related, ask here). I see people still confuse it with the Help and Support section.

    Add a specific section for Dman to Post gifs.

    Also, Lol, why am I still a mod here.

    Edit - Double lol, who decided to bring back Reddit reposts? Redditbot is the worst.
    Ex-Smite forums Lead mod, currently Paladins forum lead mod

    Goodbye Smite forums <3

    Don't merge Announcements and help. Announcements are that and that alone and don't needa be mixed with help.

    And Scuba brought dat damn bot back.
