Using the three letter rule (NBA, NFL, NHL, etc. would be fully locked into the sports forum, games like Tony Hawk would not) do we want to keep the sports forum seperate or should it be disbanded and moved into the Console board?

There's no good reason for separating sports games that can't be applied to any other genre.

I really could care less either way, but I don't mind the board's current layout.

Although given the limited traffic, maybe MMOGs don't need their own area.

Agreed, GT has too many forums. Games don't get any attention that may deserve it because people stop checking the slower forums, at least I do.

No!

Here's a better idea: Merge the Sports and MMO sections! Throw the General gaming section in as well for the heck of it since it's also slow. The main console discussion area is busy enough IMO.

What would a couple more posts matter? I can check the main console forum after working all day and there isn't more than one page of new posts. The 3-5 sports posts in that time really wouldn't make a difference. I love GT, but it does not have the traffic for so many different forums.

I don't get the point of a new vote either, the first thread was pretty clear, and you decided to merge them and then just never did.

Can you add a poll choice that states "I use the show unread posts since last visit button"?  This allows me to see all the new topics wherever they may be started, a true boon to my GT surfing.

No, because it's already there.

Look at the top of the page... See your avatar?  To the right of that, you should see, Show unread posts since last visit.  Whalla!

BTW, the sports forum will be merged.  There's some behind the scene stuff going on right now, we were aiming for this weekend, but that might change.

I think he's saying that since he already uses that feature it doesn't much matter to him if there's a separate forum for sports as he can still see the threads.

But yeah, all the cool kids use "Show unread posts since last visit."

Yes, merge them.  However, I'd like to see some official threads on them where most of the discussion goes.

Devil became so excited about the merge he had an accident on the merging tools so they have to get new ones.

just haven't had the chance to do it.  I think with the  upcoming redesign, this has been put on delay.  Be patient, it will happen (unfortunately)
