Disclaimer: I thought about posting this earlier, but got busy, and don't remember if I posted it already. I used an advanced search, and it didn't look like it, but in my experience, that's not always a reliable way of telling, so I apologize if I am reposting this.

The unnecessary amount of categories (categories as in Welcome to VeggieBoards, Local Forums, etc.) makes the site harder to navigate. Not drastically, but it's still annoying.

Here are my suggestions:

Combine the following boards under a category named 'Support Forums':
Combine the following boards under a category named 'Health & Nutrition' or 'Health & Food':
Combine the following boards under a category named 'The Environment Effect':
Combine the following boards under a category named 'Activist Forums' or 'Animal Rights Community':

You have no place for just chatting or playing silly games.
A forum needs things like that - a bit of light relief.

I also think you also need the new member Hello thing so people can dip a toe in and test the water but you lose potential active members if they get ignored when they say hello but you can lose them anyway if they post on an active thread and no-one acknowledges them.

it would take a lot of time moving all the threads and consolidating the forums. I would need the other mods to approve this.

Based on my understanding of forum-building, you wouldn't need to re-create the boards, just move them to a different category. Is this not the case for VeggieBoards?

We don't get as much regular traffic as we used to, so these get overlooked

I'm a new member and I will have to agree that the forum was difficult to navigate through. I think combining the forums you mentioned under one forum is a good idea and would be easier for new members, as well as a games forum where we can play silly games like this or that, yum or yuck.

If we get a little bit more input from the community, and people are in favour of the change we can definitely look into changing it.

Hey Silva,

How do you feel about the suggestions here?

How does the rest of the mod team feel?

Richard.
