    I noticed we are getting a lot of forums with subforums, and this is making the board index look kinda crowded, so i have been toying with something and am interested in your opinions.

    So firstly i have given Call Of Duty its own section..

    This is what the forums look like normally:

    And this is without the subforums on display:

    [​IMG]

    Now when you click on one of the forums you will see all subforums as usual, its just not visible on the forum index.


    [​IMG]

    We can do this for all or just some of the forums...

    I will be doing this on the premium forums as theres so many sections there now it will just tidy it up.

    Let me know your thoughts on this guys... Good , bad , meh

    I like the new way. You could always just take out the "Modern Warfare 2" part off the sub categories, then list them like so:

    Glitching, Modding, Hacks, ect.

    Instead of

    Glitching
    Modding
    Hacks
    ect

    I like the 2nd one, a lot cleaner

    but...the first has quick links so...

    If someone wanted to make a post in lets say mw2 lobbies they can see where it goes on the first but might get confused on the 2nd.

    The forums look a hell of alot better now since you have hidden the sub-forums within the forums looks clean and tidy and a hell of alot better now looks sexy.
