UPDATE: News, Pics & Videos Now In Regular Forums

Post by MelSpice » Sun Sep 10, 2017 1:56 pm

UPDATE:

News, Pictures & Videos can now be posted in regular forums. The will be placed into archive forums once they are one month old.

ORIGINAL POST

I've had a member suggest that I close the News, Pictures + Video forums in each section and just have all the posts in once spot.

When I started the forum, the reason I did that was so that if people want news, they can go to news, if people want pics, they can go to pics + if people want videos, they can go to videos.

In keeping with my stance on being open to suggestions and Viva Spice being for the fans, I've created a poll to let you decide.

PLEASE cast your vote!

Regards
Melissa.

Personally, I like them separated. It's almost like there are galleries attached to the forum and that way the multimedia posts won't get lost in other topics and eventually bumped right off the page.

Hm. I like the idea of having it all separatly but it might be that we don't have that many posts, f.ex. for videos and then it looks empty and sad.

I prefer them merged into one forum. My own personal preference is having to navigate/click as few times as possible. The more Sub forums there are, the more navigating would have to be done.

Me three. I think the look of this forum should be close to Denden. Maybe after gaining active members some changes would be welcome. But I think now the main thing is to offer a Denden experience so that more people would start posting.

I find the Pictures and Video Forums very useful as a "Spice Archive" - it's awesome to be able to easily find old pics and videos there. I would only find them confusing if they were used to post brand new stuff.

I think it would be a very good option to maintain a Pics+Videos Archive SubForum, BUT move the News Forum in a way that it can be the "main" forum, with its topics being shown as soon as you click on Spice Girls/MC/MB/Geri/Emma/VB.

Perhaps there is a way to have them separated after time? Like everything gets posted to a main forum but then archived by a mod or admin after a bit of time has passed? Is that possible?

Problem solved! Thank you Jimmy - great idea. New posts will go in the regular forum and once they are say, a month old, they can be moved in the the News, Pictures, Videos archives.!!
