Lightbulb A Long-Expected Poll ()

4913 hours ago I promised to open this thread within 4 hours, which means that I am 4909 hours late. But here it is anyway.

You might remember this debate, please read it before you vote
http://forum.magicball.net/showthread.php?t=8824

We discussed merging the forums about fan fiction, fan games, fan art and all that business.

Here are the poll options.
1) LBA Culture
The idea was that it would made more people reading and visiting those forums since all material would be easier to access if it was in one forum instead of six or seven. The new forum would be called LBA Culture and it was to be the place for all LBA Creations like stories, art, games, music. This would give more attention to people's work.

2) Keep it as it is
Some people didn't agree, they argued that using the New Posts button would give you all new threads in a list and that it therefor didn't matter in what subforum the threads were. Also, they claimed that merging the forums would create a mess if we wanted to go back to the old style again because the old belongings of the threads would be gone.

3) Three forums
There was also a third idea - a compromise idea made by Chaosfish looking like this:
"Merge 'Fan Art', 'Fan Fics', and 'Fan Music'
Merge 'Fan Creations - General' and 'Other Creations'
Merge 'Fan Maps' and 'Fan Games', and make 'LbaX' a sub forum of these."
It gained some support and is therefor included in the poll.

I tend to support ChaosFish's idea, although I think the Maps forum would be more suitable to be merged with the Creations forum than the Games. So basically, haev:
1. Art/Fics/Music
2. Creations
3. Games





On second thought, isn't Creations the same thing as Games? I suggest having just two then...
Anyway, I voted for "three forums".

Whilst I use the New Posts button always I know some people still use the forums menus so a single LBA culture option would be good

I think I could give the merging a try. I vote for 'LBA Culture'.

I never read those forums anyway... merging them all might encourage me.

Sure, I like the LBA culture idea. It'll make for less clutter, anyways, more organized.

OK, I voted for "Three forums".
It's because I agree with ChaosFish's idea. Just one is too few, six or seven is too many, so three is right in between, thus the ideal solution, IMO.

"Fan creations - general" Means the exact thing as "Other creations".

I see no difference between those forums, would it be perhaps that people who are not fans made the creation in the "other creations"?

I vote for fishos, i guess it would almost be the same as keep no changes, we are not reading the fan fics fan musics etc. only fan games. And also voting for no changes wouldnt make any difference since it got only 1 vote.

Gah, there's no need to change anything at all. If you haven't been bothered to read certain threads, then you stop being lazy and get off your arse.

One forum for all could really get disorganized. Since there's such a vast array of fan creations, I think The Third Option works better than the other two.

Option 1 it is - three forums won't make such a big difference, I'm afraid.

I see no reason why we would read it more just cause its all in one thread. I just think it will make it harder to get to what we want(fan games ).

option 3 for me, thought option 2 is not bad too (it's quite good as it is, there are just little incoherences)...

Well, obviously the vast majority want a change (27-5). Its all up to the admins, but I hope that something will happen. Two or three forums might be reasonable now that option 3 won with a margin of one vote vs option 1.

LBA Culture 13 40.63%
Keep it as it is 5 15.63%
Three Forums 14 43.75%
