    By browsing the forum you'll notice that it's full of anime, manga as well as music and movie threads (with only one book thread IIRC)

    I suggest breaking it up into: Anime & Manga, Movies, Music and Other Media subforums and renaming the forum "Media" or something similar.

    What do you think? [​IMG]

    That's a good idea, since it exploded since the release of this part of the forum. It's to big and chaotic now.

    What is this book thread you speak of?

    Also, I agree with splitting them up. They have become too cluttered. :/

    I don't think it's a bad idea, really, but people still constantly post in the wrong section anyway.

    It will still help by quite a lot if you ask me considering how messy the forum is anyway.

    Yeah, you're probably right.

    Hmm, I was hoping the comment was referring to my creative writing topic. Which I think I need to make a new entry to, or write a different one.

    No, because then you'd have loads of different conversations going on at the same time.

    I think its time for separate sub-sections for media:

    Music
    Movies & Television
    Books, Newspapers & Magazines
    Japanese cartoons and comics [​IMG]

    I think the last one is a big enough topic to warrant its own section now.

    I don't think this is such a bad idea actually. I believe it could help with making things more neat and tidy [​IMG]

    Looking at the first page of the BMTM there are only four anime related threads on it. Its not exactly being over run with so many threads that a separation is needed in my opinion.

    I wasn't including stickies as they are always on the first page and that Japanese video game documentaries thread has zero to do with Anime. I missed one thread which makes a total of five though. So well done on that.

    I don't think the media section is that busy, looking on the first page only 6 threads have had any activity today and you can still see threads dating back to the 5th. If you separate it into subsections I think it might spread it a bit too thin.
