Until then, I think the 'how to play/mod' threads in that subforum should stay~
Also where is the baking thread? Do we have a new one? xD

Baking is one of the threads we have earmarked to be moved to discussion! As for mafia; I think it's reasonable to move the info stickies into CNZ related, even if we delete the game threads themselves. That's a fair request. They will be unstickied though. Unstickied, but undeleted. XD

Yeah, keeping the info mafia threads is a good idea xD. If we deleted them now, and people in the future started playing again, then you'd have to post it all over again xDDD.

See I seem to be the opposite of most people. I think the mini-rants thread generates a lot of spam. It seems to have morphed into something that also contains anything which is going on in peoples lives. But I think that will fit in the discussion forum? I see the old rants format of, here is my problem, I need some support and/or suggestions, as being interactive and social. I am aware of the problems with it too. I am also aware the mods want to lower the workload or whatever too. But I don't see mini-rants that we are not suppose to reply to (as distinct from mini-life stuff) as being a healthy or building up the social bonds much. But yeah, where do you draw the line with any of this?

And Selphiroth, only as the CCC has a sub-sub forum. And the full discussion would need it's own thread. But I was suggesting it may be a redundant forum. Not saying it is, just a suggestion. (We never use to have it.) And one which would need to be discussed separately if people want to. So people can stop asking me about it here.

It's not a matter of lowering the workload, this is just how we think we can improve the content of the forums.

Please note mini-rants are currently staying according to the first post, just under a different sub-forum. There's also no anti-rant rule, just not a dedicated sub-forum.

^What Duckeh said.

Also, until the club has been officially dissolved, the CCC forum will remain.

But I presume that this is just a proposed layout at this stage, since admin specifically asked for suggestions/comments on it.

And Duckeh are you saying people can start rants threads, just in the news discussions forum?

Also is the lack of mafia due to chch people dropping out after the quake, or was it nationwide earlier than that?

No, it's a definite layout, not just a proposal. This is more of a "here's what's happening, fyi - if you have something to say we might take it into consideration".

People can't start 'rant threads' in the same way they do now, but if they want to discuss an issue, they can. Eg., "Some jerks broke into my house!" = mini-rants or Facebook. "What motivates someone to commit crime?" = discussion.

That's the difference between Facebook/Livejournal and a Forum (which by dictionary definition is a place where ideas can be exchanged).

Lack of mafia was a nationwide thing before the quake.

Thanks, that certainly clears things up.

Minour details aside, I think you are on the right track. I doubt that the lost threads will matter to most people. And there is still room for some interaction.

Oh - may I make a request regard to the CNZ auction - could we please leave the forum up until the buyers received their items? Reason being that otherwise it's too easy to forget, and I don't want people to feel ripped off. sad

Okay, guys! This stuff is happening fo realz! We've brought it forward a day because it's a bit more convenient for us, so this will now be happening tomorrow night.

That is, at 10.30pm NZT on Thursday the 14th of April.

As mentioned in the OP, there'll be an official tinychat put up if you wanna hang out whilst we work, and we'll probably be lurking as we're working. Whilst we're making the changes though, the forum will be down for maintenance, so anyone who needs to save any info from PMs or threads that they might need to access during that time should do so now.

Fingers crossed, all goes smoothly, and we'll see you on the flipside! chuu~!
