Looks good

My only suggestion is to add the "Help" sub forum back to "modifications" so its not mixed in with WIP and REL, gonna be alot of activity thier when GTA4 hits PC.

If that's the case then I'll do it at that time. To be honest our forums haven't been too big on the modding scene since 2004, so we'll just see what happens when the time comes.

I really like the layout you've constructed there. I put my vote on it unless something better comes along.

Is the VCO forum necessary?

rappo's plan looks good, I think it looks attractive, and makes sinse. tbh..I was fearfull that a new plan mite flub. This would preserve the GTAg everyone knows, and be a bit more handy..good job,rappo.

June 2005 actually because thats when GTASA came to PC :P and yea I can understand why modding slowed down alot, gtasa is an old game

To be frank, modding/stunting was much better when Vice City was the latest GTA.

rappo 10-19-2008 10:09 PM

True that Olin, Vice City was the modding peak!

But anyway, as for the VCO forum, after the application is released if there isn't significant traffic there then we can decide what to do about it. It's not causing any harm by being there, so really there is no point in getting rid of it. The goal here wasn't to make as few forums as possible, it was to make relevant threads easily accessible yet still organized at the same time.

Everyone thanks rappo, I had input on the structure :(

rappo 10-19-2008 11:09 PM

I'm the pretty face that we need to get our collective ideas across with the public. Otherwise they would see a thread by Slim Trashman and disregard it instantly.

lillb 10-19-2008 11:11 PM

haha i think the new system looks good
and thanks slim

Slim Trashman 10-19-2008 11:59 PM

Haha thanks lillb :)

Thanks to all of those involved in the process of making these forums better, and a little more to the guy who's doing most of the work.

I liked that the General Discussion forums were merged as many of those boards were hardly getting people posting in them anyway, but I kind of think that the San Andreas boards should of remained as they were in my oppinion, as there seem's to be too many stickied threads on the one San Andreas board now :P.

Just my oppinion that I thought I should point out but overall I think that the new layout looks good :).
