QOL Members pick the layout of the forum

Post by Didymus »

Hi folks,

After some discussion in another thread, Nick, our head admin, is willing to change up the layout of the forum to fit with how the members want it to be.

In order for us to come to some sort of consensus, I thought it'd be helpful if we put suggestions in this thread for a layout, and then we can pull all the suggestions together and try and get a forum that works for the majority.

So please post your suggestions for Forum designs here.

PLEASE DO NOT DISCUSS THEM HERE! This thread is JUST For suggestions only.

Take all discussion to the "Questions about 2 Subforums" thread you can find here - LINK

Mods, it'd be amazing if you can help prune any discussion from this thread so it's suggestions only, but totally understand you might not have time to do so.

Submissions for forum layout can be from ANYONE who is a member here. 8-)

Here's my suggested layout - minimal forum design so there's fewer sections, but more discussion within each one.
  • Modern Times Rock 'N' Roll
    Queen news & current activities (New products, Q+AL etc.)
  • In the Lap of the Gods
    Serious Queen Discussion (Albums, Songs, Live, Music Videos etc - in depth discussion about the band's creative output.)
  • Killer Queen
    Light Hearted Queen Discussion (Chatter about Queen, favourites polls, silly games etc.)
  • I Want It All
    Collectors discussion (eg. music formats, rarities, bootlegs, trading etc.)
  • One Vision
    Solo Material (A general place for all FOUR members of the band)
  • Spread Your Wings
    (Any other entertainment. Films, tv, music, sport, theatre, arts etc etc.)
  • Headlong
    (Current affairs, silly stuff, member banter.)
  • Teo Torriate
    (Members only section - not readable to guests - for topics like the previous Save Me forum. Personal chat etc.)
