Subforums in forums.
Can all the names of the subforums of a 'products' forum be prefixed with something to indicate which forum it is a subforum of.
Fusion Brain has subforums, one of which is software, can that (and all Fusion Brain subforums) be prefixed with FB, ie FB Software.
The reason I ask, is when you view the posts from New Posts all you see is the title and the subforums name. And I continually start to reply to a post and then realise it is in a fourm to which my answer will not apply.
Yeah, that would be nice.
Okay, let's see what that would look like:
Hardware has 3 subforums. How about:
Hardware - User Innovations
Hardware - Bluetooth Hardware
Hardware - Fusion Brain
Hardware - FB - Sensors
Hardware - FB - Skins
Hardware - FB - Outputs
Hardware - FB - Documentation and Tutorials
You mean like that? Or a little less detailed like this:
FB - Sensors
FB - Skins
FB - Outputs
FB - Documentation and Tutorials
Either is fine with me :)
I think the second version is cleaner and more consistent with other forums with sub forums like RoadRunner.
I looked at the other forums/subforums and there are a few that wouldn't make sense to do it this same way but I don't think they present confusion when topics are posted in them. As long as we can come up with a way to do a decent abbreviation for future products, I think we'll be okay.
So what would be best to do, for making these changes? Should we be going back and renaming the sub-forums with the abbreviations?
Okay so we go with the second system suggested by BugByte?
I think that's the consensus.
