the user construction forum should be seperated by topics.
like: vtols. hovercrafts etc.light mechs, medium mechs etc. fighters dropships etc. custom weapons etc.
104 pages in one forum is too much.much too much.

Sounds like an idea. Unfortunately, while I'm not a programmer, I still shudder at what kind of coding problems would arise(I'm not saying I'm against the idea, rather that would be the only problem I could see arising). I would have to wait for Rick to give an official answer.

It's fairly easy to add forums.

That being said I don't see a reason to do it. The number of threads won't change, just their location. And as a quick scan of that forum shows that each title is pretty easily identifiable as to the type of unit the thread is about I see even less reason to do it.

I agree with Chi. 104 pages just means there have been lots of people posting. Spreading those over multiple forums would make it harder to find things, I believe, not easier.

that depends on what you are looking for.

if your looking for a light mech a separation would help.
if your looking for a recon vehicle it wouldnt help much.
browsing the ideas it wouldnt make a difference at all.

and someone would have to sort all past entries. :(
so your right, and its your forum after all.

Not really. All that does is keep folks jumping from fourm to fourm.

Some sites have it set up that there is a fourm for vehicles and BA all grouped together, then one for mechs, one for aero and that is it. 3 boards in side of one. But each board is different and that is what gives each BT webpage it's community and it's character.

I say stay with what we have and maybe come up with Tags that can be checked to let folks know it's a mech, vehicle, aero etc...
