Sure that would work for a current discussion and you could probably find it later using search, but what about new haunters that really aren't sure what they want to do or even seasoned haunters wanting to re-theme?Just create a thread for each theme you want to discuss.
From what I have observed, new users rarely use the search function and they create a new thread anyway.Sure that would work for a current discussion and you could probably find it later using search, but what about new haunters that really aren't sure what they want to do or even seasoned haunters wanting to re-theme?
The "Haunt Tactics and Techniques" forum is for discussing haunting techniques and your proposed forum fits that category. I can see the usefulness of a sub forum for themes but only if the area got a lot of traffic. These changes would ultimately be Zombie-F's call as he owns the board.A separete forum for themes/rooms/scares could turn into virtual mall for anyone wanting to go window shopping for there new haunt.
The "Haunt Tactics and Techniques" forum is meant for those discussions.If that's to vague how about one for scare tactics, not just props, but to discuss the scene how it's setup. What worked and what didn't.
I had several rooms in my haunt this year that had a lot going on in them and its the combination of props, sounds, lighting, actors, scares etc... that made them work.
That sort of information is worthy of a stickyIf this is still a no if we get a theme(s) thread going that ends up with a lot of valuable informaiton can we get it/them sticky'd?
Another reason for the requestFrom what I have observed, new users rarely use the search function and they create a new thread anyway.
GOT's "Need ideas for a sewer" thread is a good example of the type of brain storming threads that I'd like to see in their own sub-forum.That sort of information is worthy of a sticky
As long as the new thread added to the theme discussion I'd think we would want to merge it with the discussion.The thread would be merged with the other theme topic otherwise you have a messy forum with discussions spread over multiple threads.
Fair enough...Here's my issue with it. The more specific you start to make the forums, the more forums there will be, which makes navigation more difficult. As of right now I'm comfortable with the total number of forums we have.
This particular topic does fit into the Haunt Tactics and Techniques forum and as Haunti stated, a quick search can yield tons of information.
A lot of the time when people are looking to start a thread about a particular theme, they will want their own thread for it as it pertains to their particular situation. For us to start a forum with a number of theme-specific discussions that all theme-specific discussions get placed into could possibly deter a person from posting their question. Their info or request could get lost in a sea of other posts to those threads.
