As you all know Editing Central consists of mainly Mapping, Modelling, Skinning and Coding forums. After some time I've noticed that these forums are used for number of help questions and 'WIP's.

I suggest that iether a seperate forum group alike to the Editing Central with it's own sub divisions or a forum under Editing Central be opened up for "Showcasing" your work. With this the showcase forum will be able to sort through the different kinds of threads showing up everyday in the other forums.

I don't know how much attention this thread will get, however I'm serious in seeing this taken into account and perhaps something will happen.

Opinions welcome. :cool:

i think something has to be done about the WIP threads, they all seem to burst into flame. people can't seem to give their thoughts or constructive comments without everyone arguing and i think it puts people off.

Exactly my point, this way these kinds of threads can be regulated more often.

I was thinking about this same idea... i dont think they could make a better choice right now than to add a showcase forum... the only other good choice would be let Legion mod it :thumbsup:

Oh sure let him be a mod! Just say to the world that trying and nagging a admin to become a mod helps!

I think we will need more than one mod for that area, but then of course Kman and ASK will most likely jump in. Though maby I could.

Someone called my name?
You little brats! You deserve to be... (err, I will think what you deserve to be)
Ahem..
In the meanwhile:
You dumby Radier that will sell like pork in a jewish market.

Be careful what you wish for. I know for sure that pork sells good in a jewish market...that's a first-hand info from an Israeli guy...mmm, I believe I even have some pork in my fridge, I will check later. But yes, only the religious people do not eat pork :)

As for the new forums, with no WIP's, current editing forums, except the Coding and Mapping forums (which are not overly active), will become empty....the mass of posts in Modeling and Skinning forums is from WIP's, each WIP getting anywhere from 200 to 2000 posts. There are almost no help topics in these forums.

Flaming, now that's another issue.... There always will be this "smart" guy that has to make another unnecessary "smart" comment about someone's else work (considering that this "smart" guy can't do anything by himself). This is the first post of the flame war...and it lead to numerous topics being closed.

There's another issue as well: off-topics. Each and every WIP thread has quite a bit of off-topic posts, which can be explained by the lack of every-day updates. This could be cured by careful observation and deletion/moving of all the off-topic posts, but several problems arise - which post to judge as off-topic, people will become angry, and last but not least - the sheer amount of work it requires. I know that some forums I visit, use another method: the WIP get submitted to the admin, he creates a thread for each and one of them with the description that the author gave and leaves it open for 20-30 posts, then locks (filtering the unnecessary "wow this is cool" posts during this time, leaving the topic with 30 useful criticism posts and comments). Again, this is quite a bit of work, but it could be done if required. It would require a bit more moderators per forum to monitor it 24/7 or close to that (that one alone had about 10, if not more)

As for the proposal of AB_Legion becoming a mod, I personally have no problem with that. I'm not too familiar with him to actively recommend him, but his posts have good content in them and show good knowledge of handling users.
Best of luck
Cheers

Thanks Matt. LOL, I know that it should go in feedback, however I figured that the swamp would be the best place to get most views. I see the showcase now, thanks again. :cool:

In the U.S. jewish markets only sell food that has fulfilled the law of the Torah.


Anyways. To tell you the truth the place I would like to be a Mod in is the codeing forum. I am there everytime I log on and sometimes I see threads that should be locked stay there for 2-3 days. So if I did become a Mod that would be where I want to be put.

methinks it would have been better to devide the old forums into sub forums (showcase and normal), instead of a new showcase forum with sub forums. :/
