Thread: Segmenting Chit-Chat
12-17-2006, 07:43 PM #1
Thought of this after seeing Jaguar's computer help thread and it got me thinking, perhaps we could segment Chit-Chat into several sections to make it simpler to group threads based on their topic types.
They did this on RAWK and it seemed to work well to help users navigate and find what they want without the need to search, same time help moderators keep track of what is posted where.
I recommend splitting CC into the following:
General Sports (Ashes, NBA, water polo, football, Laureus Sport Awards etc)
Media & Arts ('My fave music', The Hobbit, 'How hot is Jessica Alba?' etc)
News & Issues ('Singapore relaxes chewing gum ban', 'Ban takes on UN General Secretary role', 'Toll hike' etc)
Technology (Ipod issues, 'Help with my computer!', Windows Vista, Photoshop tips, DVDRW etc)
Everything else (Spooky stories, chicken rice vs char kuetiow, 'My trip to Rome', 'Merry Christmas!' etc)
I realise that the CC section is still not too busy but the number of views at observed during normal hours there hover around 15 - 35 (most times I'm on), meaning it's busier than expected but with less actvity, in which I attribute to the lack of topics or discussion because a user may be (and most likely to be) too lazy to actually read and open threads to check what they are all about with everything lumped into one basket.

I do agree this is a good idea, however it shouldn't disturb the ratio of badminton/other. Maybe if CC was left in the lounge, and once you clicked CC, there would be subforums?

Hmm, creating more sub-sub-forums??....Originally Posted by wilfredlgf
..hmm, i remember Cheung had mentioned and suggested a similar idea of putting pictures of tournaments in 1 special forum/sub-forums(but not many were in favor). I was thinking maybe the mods/kwun can do this also to the other sub-forums(ie. Videos and Tournaments pics etc.), instead of Chit-Chat only..
A. Videos - mods/kwun maybe can organize all videos to their related tournament(s), rather than all spread out. It'l make it for easier search of specific videos for any tournaments.
B. Tournaments pics - like Cheung suggested earlier. The current format still shows us which thread has the pics and it's still quite easy to find...but rather than sift and browse thru, people can just go straight to the pics folder to find them..
Of course all of these depend on how much work kwun thinks is worth it..

1) i don't see enough traffic in the chit-chat forum to justify a split.
2) the chit-chat forum should really not be the focus of the forum as it generally do not deal with badminton topics. furthermore, there are billions of "other" topics to be discussed, we cannot possible make a sub-forum for each of them.

Still, you're the boss.
Edit : Was a lot longer than this but, heck, I'd be accused of rattling sabres.
