PostSubject: Mod Note: Filing Topics   Fri Dec 10, 2010 1:59 pm

Some time soon, we will be adding a healthy handful of more-specific topic areas to the Board.

Besides looking at your suggestions in the Mile Marker, we based many of these new categories on topics that pop up in the Round Table frequently. It should make things that interest you easier to find, and stuff you don't really care about easier to skip.

Of course, for the new categories to work, we have to use 'em.

When you post a new topic, please double-check whether or not it belongs in an existing category area. Moderators can and will move topics misfiled in the Round Table, but it's a lot less confusing if it starts out in the right place. (It also gives you a chance to see if there's an existing topic that can be continued instead of starting a new item.)

Being careful about filing will also help us better tailor the board to your needs. If nobody posts in (SPOILER ALERT) the new Outdoorsmanship category, we can phase it out; if there are dozens of posts in the Round Table on a category we forgot about, we can add it.

The Mod Team is going to start some of the sorting before the new categories appear. So if you start a topic in the RT that seems to have disappeared, check the "View Your Posts" link to the upper-right of the main page... it probably just got moved.

P.S. Even with new categories, the Rubber Room will remain wild and free--so if you want to talk about any topic in a no-holds-barred, cussin' and a-fightin' in the mud and the blood and the beer debate, it still goes in the RR.

One more heads-up, as I see some of the changes are underway:

A few of the lower-traffic categories are getting merged. Not removed, just combined. With all the new categories, the front page would be a mile long if we didn't neaten things up a bit.

Your old topics in those categories are still alive, just in a new place. Don't be alarmed. Cool
