Re: Changing CD for the better.

Question for the mods.... I'm all for tightening up where threads are, eg a programming post in General moved to one of the Programming subforums, but could we get a blit clearer about what is supposed to be where?

Eg, the Trailer discussion was moved from General ("General FIRST discussion") to Chit-Chat which is listed as an "off-topic" subforum. I think one would expect the FRC teaser to be on-topic (somewhere) on this forum, and aside from the Rumor Mill subforum (and even that's a stretch -- the teaser isn't a rumor), General seemed to be the most appropriate place.

I can move it back, but mods also don't really have clear directions for this. I'm basically using my best guess.

I didn't mean to call you out - but I think this really makes my point.

Thank you.

No worries. My intention for moving threads around was to actually point out this very topic -

What really belongs where?

Game hints are technically on topic, so yeah, maybe don't belong in chit-chat. But do they belong in Rumor Mill? Does anyone even use that?

I moved them to somewhere that allows for a little more "fun" where people can post gifs, memes, wild guesses, and anything that isn't exactly serious.

Going back to when these subforums were created, the intent of the Chit-Chat forum was for it to be used for all non-FIRST and non-robotics discussion. So, based on this classification, I wouldn't put the game hint and similar topics into Chit-Chat.

Re: Changing CD for the better.

Back when I first joined CD (also the peak of the "official" game hint era), they were usually discussed in the rumor mill.

Is rumor mill currently defaulted for all?

A big thing regarding tech services (as CD can be easily thought of as a service), is that over time, the user base changes how they use the website, but they also simultaneously don't want change to the service. As an example, Github.com changed their header bar from blue to a dark grey, and this caused an outrage. Reddit gave their website a face lift and well....

Often times, even if you build something to a group of users' specifications, they won't like it because the truth is, they don't really know what they want or how it looks like on a page to page basis ("I'll know it when I see it")

Resource? Yes

Service? No

I don't think "Service" provides an appropriate connotation for the site.
