I vote for a more straightforward and simple organization so yea, purging those unused forums would be for the best.
However, I can't help but notice how the different forums have really blurry uses.
First are the Creations and Uploads. Obviously, the Creations are for ANY type of creation, be it in construct or not. while uploads are specifically construct files - mainly uploaded to show tech demos and bug reporting.
But this is where things get blurry, I always thought that to divide the diference of creation and upload. the creations forum would cater to ongoing projects and would have uploads that are executable, and that caps should always go to uploads because that's exclusively construct related. However seems it's not the way it works.
Basically the system is like this:
-if tech demo -> uploads OR creations
-if bug -> uploads
-finished or ongoing project -> creations OR uploads
seriously that's how the whole thing works. (I checked threads on both forums before typing this.)
I know people are getting used to it but it's mildly confusing especially for newbies looking for some example caps or some real game creations.
My suggesstion is maybe it could be divided to make each distinct. Like just combine them both in a Creations forum and make subforums:
Tech Demos (generators, 3d whatever, blablabla)
Game Projects(ongoing or finished, yea we got people working on things. I don't think this would be inactive)
and Other(non construct, website, art, etc.).
Bug related uploads or help in how-to could just go to the Help/section.
Also, some of the plug-in topics. I hope there'd be a forum where updates and stuff about it could be posted. Maybe combine the add-on forum with a plugin forum.
ok i'm mention this because the 'S' topic is in Construct discussion. I mean it's ok, not that hard to find but I think 'S' belongs in a categorization whose members aren't supposed to be that lonely.
Just my thoughts so far. I'm not really complaining or saying it's bad, but I hope I helped by sharing this.
apologies. I just realized that plugins really does go to the construct discussion. However, maybe a more streamlined forum or at least subforum could make it easier to access?
also, the 's' topic is not only a topic about the plugin, it's a tutorial topic. so it's kinda torn between being a tutorial topic(which should go the the tutorials forum for easy access) and being a topic about the plugin. so I stillgo with the suggesstion of a subforum for them. Just a suggesstion though.
