Default Too many forums - requesting member feedback.

I think we have too many forums. Way too many forums even if we ignore non sports related forums. I think we have over organized and now the structure works against good interactivity.

The staff and moderators have been discussing this issue and it is time we open the discussion up to all the members and get your feedback. If we do decide to restructure, we will do AFTER the WC when we have a lull.

Internally, we seem to all want far fewer forums than we have.

We've had suggestions as radical as having just two:
  • Cricket
  • Not Cricket
To a few more:
  • Bangladesh cricket
  • Forget cricket
  • International cricket
  • Other Sports
Or,
  • Cricket
  • Leagues and Tournaments
  • Other Sports
  • Forget Cricket
Or we could opt for somewhere in between.

So what do you guys think? We will keep this sticky for a while.

PS: There will be one or two administrative forums - for things like support etc.

BC is the only forum I have come across with so many sub-forums. I like the last option minus the leagues and tournaments. There should be only one sub-forum for all cricket discussion. This would also encourage more foreign members to sign up since the International cricket sub-forum doesn't get enough attention. And when Bangladesh aren't playing this would ensure that the whole forum is not dead.

So you mean - Cricket, other sports, misc?

Folks: these are not then only options. Feel free to suggest.

Ideally I'd like the first option (cricket and forget cricket) however I think too many people would be opposed to that.

More realistically I think Cricket, Forget Cricket and Other Sports should suffice. Also I think the Match Archives section is a gem and should be preserved.

I am fine with option 2. It seems to be most logical organization of the forum.

2nd one.

In some other cricket forums like Pakpassion and ICF, there is only a single forum for international cricket which means that fans can see info on the same window.

Let for example, I don't bother to go to the international cricket section BUT if these 2 sub-forums are joined you would find me posting on those threads because I would notice them.

Can anyone of the mods do a query and tell us the top 3 or 4 forum with most hit in a year average?

"2nd one".

Cricket and non cricket is definitely the best option. I dont mind how many other non cricket sub forums are there as long as all cricket discussion is in one place. Like some one said this would encourage users to post in every thread as well as bring in non bangladeshi posters when discussing matches not involving bangladesh. I can see bc being a lounge for ban, zim and associate fans.

I prefer these too. Having to switch between the Bangladesh Cricket and International Cricket sub forums during this tournament was mildly irritating.

2nd option is the best choice. And theres so many threads about 1 topic too. Can we lower down the number of threads?

Please remove the international cricket section. Threads just bomb there. Very little incentive to others to visit banglacricket.

In order of importance to me:
1. BC
2. FC
3. International Cricket
4. Other Sports

I would suggest removing the Just Cricket section and merging it with International Cricket.

EDIT: Also, if BC and International Cricket are brought under a 'Cricket' forum, I am OK with that as well.
