It might be just me, but I find all the places to post on this site a bit confusing. Until the board activity picks up, I don't think there needs to be so many sub categories. It even makes the board look less busy, which might scare away visitors who crave action.

I keep forgetting where I made different posts, and I haven't even made that many. It's just a lot of navigating to do with so few posts in some of the boards.

I think i know what you're trying to say and i agree with you..
There shouldn't be so many sub-categories on the front page.. there should be the main caregories and we click them, and then the sub-categories come up

This is petty organized, So you guys don't want the sub ceategorys, can do that but say bye bye to lots of topics.

Its almost too organized lol its a maze!! For every topic I want to post in I have to click on three links - and that's assuming I click on the correct header.

As one example, I don't see why 'Yoville' and 'News and Updates' need to be separated. And once I click on 'Yoville', does there really needs to be 6 headers just to add crew? There should be three 'crew needed' threads that fall under one header, I think.

I am going to go with what you say. If you have it hard to find new topics go to View posts since last visit>> Then go to the topics that have stars>> once you read and replied if needed>>go back>> and repeat.

Yoville.com is much easier to navigate, but I understand wanting to be a bit different. I think it's good that you're making use of more categories/headers (as a lot of posts can get lost quick on yoville), and I just discovered the ability to track your own posts, so that is very helpful!!

I just worry that as a new site, it's going to be hard to attract posters when they have to click a lot of places to see the bulk of the threads. Potential users tend to be attracted to a plethora of threads, so when they open up a header that only has 1-3 topics, it6 might give the wrong impression.

The yoville news section has a bunch of topics, so is perfect as is. However, I do suggest that you unsticky some of the older posts in the Yoville News section. I almost missed the hair salon, new tracks, and iloveyoville shirt talk.

Alright, I'm beginning to understand the stress on the navigation on the forum. I personally have no problem with finding posts, but its the members that matter. I would love to make this a happy place to go, non-stress full but It's getting a bit hard because of my capability of managing this forum.
I guess that we will have to take away lot of sub category's until we have more activity on the forum. I want a approval from the members fist.
