    IMO there is way to many sticky topics in the Announcements forum. I think it should be cleaned up a bit, some slight housekeeping needed. :)

    Honestly I think the entire forum needs some cleaning up.

    Take a look at the forum software area - many of those subforum haven't have any posts in then for like how long?

    I'm going to bump this up, what are the chances of having the forum software area cleaned up? Also maybe start using prefixes a little more.

    Could you give a outline as to how you would like to see the forum software area look?

    I do not see any other way to do it. It has it as specific yet general as it needs to be.

    What I was thinking is have 4 different nodes (forums).

    Paid scripts
    Free/open source Scripts
    Free hosted forums (for like zetaboards etc)
    Paid hosted forum (for like IPB, VB etc)

    Then in each node you would have different prefixes, one for each vendor, with an other for those who are not big enough to have their own prefix.

    Of course there are other ways of cleaning up the section a little more as well.

    So, let's take the paid scripts node. Now many members are watching the vB section only, and get alerts anytime a thread/post is made in that forum, you way, they would get a alert anytime any thread/post is made in there, no matter what the platform is for, seems counter productive that way.

    Hmmmm I wonder if someone would build an addon/mod for XF that will send an email out for topics created with selected prefixes only.

    With that said, could all the subnodes in https://theadminzone.com/forums/other.546/ be merged into the Main other and use prefixes for those topics?

    I just want to bump this up, what are the chances of some of those things I posted above would happen?

    I've merged the contents from three dormant forums (PunBB, FluxBB, and UseBB) into their parent forum.

    The SandmanThe Sandman - did you apply prefixes before doing so?

    How about making prefixes for those that don't warrant their own subforum.
