    I feel like I want to make a lot of new topics. But I also don't want to clutter up the Chit Chat forum that serves as our general "all-purpose" forum. There are a lot of things that we could put in there. Books, movies, video games, the "What's your favorite" sort of topic, and so much more.

    Increasing the amount of things we have to discuss can't be a bad thing. Also, actually seeing a forum inspires you to think about something that was recently on your mind that you could post there. So when I see a computer discussion forum, a whole bunch of topics come to mind. Then I post them, and people suddenly have more things to discuss. If there was a forum for gaming, physical and visual entertainment, technology, and so on, there would be more receptacles for that discussion.

    I'm not saying to make a hundred new sub-forums, no. Of course not. But we could meditate on expanding "The Forest" category into something bigger? It's where I spend the most of my time, and seeing it so small feels so debilitating.

    I was thinking of a new forum for video games, and a new forum for books, movies, and TV shows. What do you think?

    I like the idea of expanding the forest, but there are so many subtopics you could have, you can't accommodate everyone. I'd like to see this idea implemented either way

    I agree that some topics could use a few more expansive forums but we wouldn't want to clutter up the forum either. Too many and it'll get a little crazy.

    I personally believe that subforums are a good thing and make things easier to find. If there's a demand for this kind of subforum, then I'm all in favour of creating one. Summarized as either "Entertainment" or "Media", or even both? Whichever is broader and includes more of the suggested topics, though I'm unsure of what it'd be named considering the previous naming trend of the boards.

    Hm, do you mean specifically in The Forest? I can't really answer that since I haven't really been active there yet.

    There is a "Calls Of The Wild" section though, that is all empty, in The Dens: "This forum is for discussing news that is relevant to the otherkin community. It is also for discussing media related to or of interest to the community including: Books, Music, Television Shows, and so forth. News articles may also be automatically imported here for comments and discussion."

    Maybe that's not what you looked for at all, maybe I missunderstood.

    Yes, if I understand your question correctly, the forum to be expanded is "The Chit Chat" forum, which is a little bit too all-encompassing to harbor a solid attention span for more than two minutes. At least on my end.

    It seems the overwhelming majority of users are wanting an additional forum added for books, movies, video games, and etc. Are you wanting a new forum or separate categories for each topic? My idea is to have multiple forums as subforums of chit chat if that works for everyone.

    It's really all okay. I know that clutter is a detrimental thing, and I keep wondering to myself how to shorten the Otherkin-related category. It's huge. The Forest only has four forums in it right now; far smaller. A new forum not being a sub-forum would be just barely okay, but a sub-forum of Chit Chat is dandy too, probably because it helps to make it clear what goes in what forum simply because the subforums visibly exist.

    So it works.
