Why do we need three Odyssey forums?

Why do we need two? Why not just have the SS or ToO.

Good question, why don't we merge the two?

Chances are you'd have to eliminate SS then.

The thing is that some people don't want a message board with 800 forums that have 5 subforums each.

NOT MY BABY! D:

I think it mostly depends on the people, if people are committed to multiple boards..

We'd merge them, there would be changes on the new forum. The ToO is pretty dead, I doubt there'd be much push back about changing stuff there.

What is this about 800 forums?

Ok! GREAT IDEA over here: merging the ToO and CC! I mean, yay! Both forums get more people on, and we only have two forums to keep track of. It's a win-win-win.

The CC has almost no traffic and many of the users from CC are also here on SS. It would make more sense to shut down CC and merge SS & ToO.

Then you'd have leadership issues though. We run things on the SS a lot differently than on the ToO behind the scenes.

How do you run thing differently? And are these issues really worth having two different forums?

Everything, from the duties of administrators and moderators, to not having elections and events.

The ToO is much more role-playing-ish with money and events. The CC, to be honest, is ToO's little cousin, and SS has been awesome since John Henry joined.

I must sound like I hate the CC, but I don't.

The ToO has been dead lately, the events have not gone anywhere, and the latest election ended when no one ran. This new combined forum could not have elections and the duties of administrators and moderators could be discussed.

We should just get rid of all message boards, and just have the too chat. =p

I say we combine the two boards, each board picks two admins who have the power to ban people and give moderator power to people. We have a large pool of experienced moderators so that wouldn't be a problem. Obviously the ToO has become too complicated so let's simplify this new forum.

Would the simplification only be with leadership, or would we merge or get rid of certain forums that are unused or unnecessary?

Both, everything needs to be simplified
