Should Friends have it's own Sub-Forum?
Posted 03 September 2012 - 04:28 PM
I am just curious. Myself, I would like to see it a sub-forum in city. While I enjoy looking at the Friends designs, It really seems to clutter the city forum when I am looking for city themed ideas.
I also see the positives in giving Friends it's own Stand Alone Forum. It would be easily found place for specifically Friends related topics and builds and make it easier for new people who join specifically for friends related topics.

I have absolutely nothing against the Friends theme and it's collectors and fans. I also realize we're in the middle of a Friends-centric seasonal campaign here at EB. But it has REALLY REALLY taken away from the Town forum experience... It's to the point now that I'm beginning to avoid the Town forum altogether. Maybe it's just me, but the Town forum was a lot more fun before Friends 'took over.'
Now, from a less egocentric, quality control point of view, I would still recommend breaking off Friends into its own destination, simply because the Town forum was already a pretty large and expansive destination in its own right. And it's become increasingly deceptive to navigate between Friends sets and creations and City stuff when users don't properly identify them as such in a thread title. Now with TLG execs using words like "decade" and "here to stay," Friends is obviously not going anywhere. I think it would not hurt the EB Friends enthusiast experience in any way to migrate it into its own location. Besides, shouldn't this site follow the lead of Lego itself, who have clearly gone to great strides to design, depict and market the Friends sets as something entirely independent of Lego City?
"I don't have a problem! I can stop buying Lego whenever I want. I just...urmm, don't want to stop right now. Yeah, that's it. I'll stop later. Maybe. Someday."

The Friend's topics in the town forum get a lot of views and comments too so would moving it have effect on it in general ?
I prefer straight out forums than adding sub-forum after sub-forum.
So I can not tick any boxes right now.....sit on the fence the tiger will on this question.

I would imagine that while it will still remain popular there would be less builds going up would if the comps had wound down.
That said if they bring out some more mini dolls I can see the activity going back up again! :)
I'm happy with whatevers decided!

It's got zip to do with town, it's targeting another demograhpic and it's probably gonna be quite huge. TLG has put a boatload of money and brains into this (and it looks like it's paying off) so I think it could be as big/important as some of the other subforums (it doesn't take much to overrun the scifi section anyway)
If this forum was created in the mid 80's I'm sure we'd had a Fabuland forum as well
