    can any of the mods consider adding the Wii u to the top of the page where the home, forum, and downloads, part is? it would save me time having to click to forums and getting to the Wii U section that way, the Wii and DS are legacy consoles and should be replaced with Wii U and 3DS instead.

    I swore there was a thread for this but I can't find it.

    Either way I do agree that the Wii U needs to be linked up there.

    Also we may want to consider dividing the Wii U forum up a bit now that its launched. Probably General Discussion, Console Discussion, and Homebrew Discussions as usual.

    The problem with shoving away the NDS section is that its still waaay active, probably the most active of the consoles/handheld sections.
    Add Wii U to the top, but keep NDS, Wii and PSP there.
    They are still widely used.

    Problem is people are already complaining about the bar being too wide. Adding WiiU is easy, but it's gonna make the bar even wider.

    It's already split up for nearly a week now :wink:

    How about separating it into it's respective companies in a dropdown menu?

    Something like
    Code:
    Nintendo
    - Wii
    - WiiU
    - 3DS
    - NDS
    Sony
    - PSP
    - PS3
    - PS Vita
    Microsoft
    - XBOX 360

    No, Here's how I think it should go:

    Code:
    Nintendo
    -Wii U
    -Wii
    -3DS
    -NDS
    -GBA
    Sony
    -PS3
    -PS2
    -PS1
    -PS Vita
    -PSP
    Microsoft
    -Windows
    -Xbox
    -Xbox 360
    Retro Systems
    -Neo Geo
    -3DO
    -Sega
    -Atari
    ...
    You pretty much get the rest! And include the NES/SNES in the Retro section!

    As Black-Ice said, these are still active sections. If you don't want to see them for some reason, you can hide them in your account settings...

    The extra menu level might make it more obnoxious to use. I'm now curious what others think though.

    Here's a few other ideas I came up with for making that top bar fit more stuff:
    • Offer all consoles with some hidden by default, and make the way to choose what you see more obvious.
    • Add an option to replace text with icons (the ones seen next to subforums in the forum list) so they take less space. (I've considered making a browser script to do this...)
    • Reduce the spacing between the menus.
    • Rename DS and Wii to (3)DS and Wii(U), and lump both consoles together under their respective menus
    • Maybe rename the "Xbox 360" option to just "360"?

    All the extra consoles you names are lumped together in the Other Consoles section. We're talking about the dropdown menus, not a forum reorganization.

    And adding the WiiU section isn't that bad

    Well, I was basically thinking of organizing everything into their respective "dropdown menus" It'll sure make life easier for oldcomers and newcomers!

    That'd make the bar very cluttered...

    A simple "Other" option might be useful (that just points to the "Other Consoles" section), but listing all of them in a menu up there would be messy to say the least.

    I also agree that we should have a WiiU bar. Also since I like to edit stuff, and beat Punyman. Here's what it would look like with the Wii U expansion bar.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Cool, I was too lazy to do that, so I just copied a random one, didn't bother with the dropdown :P

    Was a pain really, but I was bored with nothing to do. Did know, or want to learn how to assign the nodes to another tabs. So I ended up renaming 3DS to Wii U, edited the dropbox to all Wii U sections, and then I had to rename the other boxes while adding on another box for the column I renamed...

    I really need to find something to do.
