I like the subsections idea for the GNR stuff. I'd put UYI there as well. And have a members picture thread in Anything Goes, as well as the Bust a Gut thread. I think that might help Anything Goes to go back in activity and lots of people that never visit those threads would do if this was done.

I would want to have the solo sections organised the same way they have on this forum: http://www.thegnrforum.com/

Like this:

Section: Side Projects & Solo Work
Subsections: • Old Gunners • New Gunners • Velvet Revolver

I'd get rid of the past concerts sections for the same reasons as Dead Flower's mentioned. It takes forever to scroll through all of that.

I would delete the promotion section as well. As well as the fans questions to Axl and the band. That section has no purpose. I would probably merge Don't Damn Me with the D&N section as well. And merge Reunion and Original and call it Yesterdays again.

Not sure how much this fits in with "structure" as such, but this seemed as good a place as any to post this. Is there a way of making the search function work for material over a year old? It kinda sucks that we can only access our posts and threads from the last 365 days... Particularly given the influx of older members this restructuring's going to bring about.

If you search on your own name as the author, you get access to posts older than one year. ;)

Just tried that, but it only gave me my posts for the last year still...

Find Author: Graeme (for example)

Then you just search and it go 40 pages back.

You have to search for a word if you want to get further back.

Edit: Nevermind, it didn't work. Weird. It always worked like that before.

Edit 2: Yeah, it seems like you have to use a word to search. If you do that, you get access to older posts.

I've often thought about a current members' solo projects section. Might not be the most high-traffic section, but it would de-clutter D&N a bit ;)

I say just work that into Former Gunners. No reason not to have Buckethead and Bumblefoot threads in the same section.

THIS!

Except I'd maybe call it ex-gunners and current gunners.
For example, Buckethead is generally considered "new" guns (2000 onward) but still an ex member.
Just merge the two VR subforums we have now. They're useless now that VR is pretty much inactive.

But definitely THIS.

I'm curious what your thoughts are

shirtless photos of sexy forum admins plz.

:lol: Love it.


Either way, a streamlining process where you have fewer forums/subforums would make it easier, to both moderate and for generally viewing/finding threads. Some clarity with regards to that may reduce the incessant repetition of certain topics and threads, and keeps the most pertinent stuff in the most appropriate section.

I think there are way to many sections like there should be a off topic section for Anything Goes and My World instead of being in GNR main. Also the concert page needs to go. I also think support needs its own section to.

Lennie about Putin :lol:

I'm starting to like Putin y'know.  Everything else aside you've got to respect a man named after a sound that vaginas make.

So if Axl sang guest vocals on another album, it would go in that section?
