I would like to move the Help & Discussion Center up to the top of the forums and move General Category down to above the Neowin Related Discussion forums (so quite a bit lower than it is now)

This is to help regain a more Tech-look for the site, it may actually help members start focusing more on the tech aspects of the site.

But this is a pure vote for members, so whoever wins, wins! feel free to comment or talk me out of this ludicrous idea

I think its worth a try. You can always change it back if its causing problems. Good idea.

A couple of questions....

1. Do u know how many people join the forums because of the jokes/desktop pics and not becoz it is a tech forum? I would think it is hard to get those numbers but still a lot I believe..Does moving them down bring down the members joining Neowin?

2. Isn't Neowin more than just a tech forum? Agreed the name stands for Tech related stuff but does moving the sections have to do with re-identifying (pardon me if it's the wrong word) or reinforcing Neowin as a tech forum?

I guess you can try it for a couple of months and then go back if needed....

Sounds Great!

/Edit:

This sounds like a problem that should not be discussed with the presence of young adults....

I say let's give it a try. :) No harm in that. :)

Also, so maybe in this new "Tech-Look", AutoPatcher could be it's own main forum, and not a sub-forum? :D

to 1: I think its a combination of both, and moving the forums down won't result in a decline because the threads are still accessed from the Main page

and 2 answer 2, to be blunt - yes

Let's move all Gendisc stuff to the bottom of the page. Problem solved. Most forums have "offtopic" stuff at the bottom.

While it will take some adjusting to (I browse categories in a set order) I think it is for the best. The general sections are way too popular for a mainly tech site. Moving them down may encourage new users, like you have said, to use the tech areas first.

I say move it, more tech related discussion if it occurs is always good. Although I can't imagine it'll have an instant profound impact, we'll only really be able to tell how well it's worked over periods of months.
