NL board is a bit confusing
« on: January 03, 2018, 01:36:26 am »
IMO the NL board is confusing: https://www.lemmingsforums.net/index.php?board=9.0

Now I mostly use the NL website to download things (when I can) but before;

Every time I went to download something like the latest player; I struggled to find it. IMO; there are too many stickied topics with similar sounding titles (some of which I think are obsolete?)

Some of these threads (like the converting levels and tilesets from Lemmini to NL) are better suited elsewhere? Not sure though.

One big thing seems to be that while there are a lot of useful topics stickied; I don't see any that is (at least obviously) a direct link to either the current "stable" NL OR the new format "experimental" release. ???

Maybe add a topic to have links to the NL website? Come to think of it: I don't see a topic for that already; also I think some things could be merged so there isn't so many stickied topics. Like putting the IRC channel topic in with the links to the website is a good idea imo

I'll be happy to make/change boards if Nepster and others agree on a structure.

Yeah, I agree. Now that the forum regulars have read the graphic style and pack update topic (or at least know, that it is there), we no longer really need them to be sticky.
Regarding the rest: I will create in the next few hours a new "Welcome to NeoLemmix" thread, that serves as a general introduction to NeoLemmix and contains the main info to get started. This way we will probably only need two or three of the current sticky topics.
