Maybe a new forum?
« on: May 01, 2006, 07:45:02 PM »
This question is mostly for the judges so i'll make it quick.  This site is so frekin sweet, the creator did a great job :wink: . Most of the pics in the gallery look profesional even.  They have great lighting, angles, and scenery.  But i do have a question...Why not have an off-topic forum for us 'ballers to lounge in when something great non-paintball related pops up?  Its a great way to keep people coming back to this beautiful site.  anyway just a thought u might want to consider...

IMO there are plenty of other (larger) sites that offer that. Personally I'm not interested in moderating all the politics and whatnot that will invariably pop up. And that's coming from a veteran of threads like that.

I agree with drg about the off topic forum, but I think it wouldn't be a bad idea to add some more sub topics to try and break up all the discussions a bit.  Its hard to use these forums as a good place to find info as it is currently structured.  What I'm getting at is like this:

Half Cocker Talk section
-General Discussion
-Etc etc

Half Cocker Tech section
-How to's forum
-Problems & fixes
-New Ideas
-Other Cocker mods
-etc etc

What I usually look for in my forum is for discussions that seem to group together and when theres enough of them in the general discussion area I start moving them into their own forum category as to make it easier for users to find what they are looking for.  

Just an idea....

I know what... A halfcocker video forum! Since many, like me once, go on this site to see what a halfblock is, it would be great to have some videos showing halfs and mids in action to show how they would work in real life. Perhaps there could also be a halfcocker of the month forum and a video of the month forum. Also it would be neat if someone made a video of the do it yourself guide.

Probably don't need a whole separate forum for videos, and we also have a gallery that can hold videos. If someone wants to start a video thread I'd sticky it.
