    Yo, so I'm not sure how many of you browse other battledomes or bits of this site (my assumption would be not many) or have noticed but we've been floating some ideas around about restructuring bits of the forum and we came up because we get a lot of activity and attract a lot of new members.

    The basic gist of this is that the OBD would be moved to some kind of "battledome" avenue and the other battledomes would come be neighbours with us to centralise this activity in one place, for a quick visualisation of what this would look like, imagine this:



    Note: This is a mockup I made in five minutes by editing html on the main page, it's not going to look exactly like this and is probably missing some things like e.g. the FT battledome or a main page link to the meta like we currently have. Basically this is just to help you visualise what I mean, don't take it as gospel.

    FAQ:

    Q: Nighty, does this mean that we'd get a bunch of random ass mods coming in from other bits of the site to tell us how to do things?

    A: No, you guys are stuck with me and the rest of the current OBD team. :caticon

    Q: Nighty, does this mean we're merging with the other battledomes?

    A: No, we'll just be next to them, we won't eat them.

    Q: Nighty, does this mean anything inside the obd will change at all?

    A: No, the OBD will remain pretty much the same as it is now.

    Q: Nighty, is this 100% going to happen?

    A: No, we're just testing the waters at the moment, I want to say it's looking likely but you never know, if you can come up with a bunch of good reasons for us not to try this out then feel free to let us know and we'll end the whole thing.

    Q: Nighty, can I be OBD mod?

    A: You can be OBD mod after I get admined.

    That aside, ask questions, voice complaints, let me know how you feel about this. My gut reaction is that none of you really care about this change as long as it doesn't effect how the OBD itself is run, would this generally be the case?

    I'm cool with it, the other battle domes were always kind of shoved into their own sections.

    Make the other battledomes sub-sections of the OBD. That way we can eventually phase them out like we did to the cancerdome :maybe

    We should assimilate them by force. Then we can beat them into accepting our calcs as the gospel.

    Not too bothered by this idea tbh, although there may be mild annoyance to deal for me with alterations of old URL links if that actually happens.

    Sure, go for it. I can't think of any non-stupid reasons anyone would seriously object for.

    The battledome avenue will probably be placed somewhere near the top of the front page, right below the anime and manga sections, last I heard. So closer to the top and even closer if we do the whole logo implementation thing for the bigger manga/anime sections (see thread in Konoha Times)

    So since supposedly nothing really changes within the OBD itself.

    What's the point of asking ?

    Mainstream Battledome lives again :fatcat
