    Adding of new forums

    As the members grow in NB, there is a need to add new forums (slowly) so there is more specific topic discussions, please put your forum suggestions here, thanks.

    I'll start first, I suggest adding of a main 'Internet Marketing' forum so we can discuss all topics about IM in that forum instead of using the 'Business' forum.

  2. Thanked by:

    I think the forums are fine as they are and I don't see any need for anymore at the moment. Just my opinion.

    +1 from my side.
    I say we require a 'Freebies' section. As we see many many [FREE] prefixed threads in the 'Marketplace'.

    Alright, there isn't going to be a freebies section, read here why. On the other hand, a freebies subforum might be nice in the Themes section. But that would be the only place where a freebies subforum should be, since the other ones aren't active enough yet to divide that stuff.

    For the rest, it looks like the board is well-organised in my opinion, I don't see any remarks

    yeah, there should be a subforum for theme freebies, so the theme forum won't be flooded with free theme posts.

    Well i don't know what you guys think about this, but today i wanted to start a topic and just couldn't find the specific sub-forum/forum.
    Can there be a section named 'Search Engine Optimization' or SEO or something similar?
    Just a suggestion. There's a section for on-page SEO but no section for SEO in general.

    You never want to let a forum grow so large and cumbersome that its hard to find the right place to post (that becomes a real drag as a mod, much less as a poster). Still as niches grow and take over one area it's a good idea to identify them and create a subforum (it's all about "scalability").

    As such this thread is a great idea. We dont have to add a ton of 'em (and *shouldn't* if the taxonomy is built right to start), but this is a good way to identify needs if/when they arise.

    I agree with this guy, the topics should be ordered because they are a mess.
    for example i'm aware most users here are proxy webmasters including me but proxies should go in a subtopic not a main one.

    That's why I said to add it slowly, and now it's the time to start adding.
