UPDATE #1: I have just put all news, features and tutorials on the site under articles. They are filterable and existing links still work. This allows the system to be smarter and show profile content more accurately.
A question for you to ponder. We have begun the slow march towards site simplification, as I believe it is important for us to make our site responsive, mobile friendly and easier to use. 13 years ago when I begun this work these buzzwords didn't exist, and while I generally don't do "buzz" I believe anything that helps us support our community and encourage content to be shared is a good thing. Here are the first few steps I'm contemplating:
- Merge videos / images / audio into one gallery system "media" and have videos ordered to the front
- Merge news / features / tutorials into one "articles" system
- Merge groups / events into groups
- Merge addons / downloads / mods into a more connected system (will be complex, still figuring this one out)
This will unify / change a number of URLs. Just wanted to see if you think this is wise or crazy or have suggestions for me, as I start thinking about this process. I'll keep you posted and thanks for the continued support!
