Should The Flood Forum be broken down into 'Sub Forums'?

seeing as the numerous [i]x vs. y threads[/i] spawned in The Flood has caught the [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=76456243]attention[/url] of BUNGiE.net Community, an idea of breaking down Off Topic: The Flood into Sub Forums occurred to me so people who get annoyed at certain threads will be satisfied here's what i had in mind: >BUNGiE Forums ---->BUNGiE Universe ---->BUNGiE.Net Community ---->Off Topic ----------->The Flood ----------->x vs. y ----------->Girl Problems ----------->Music ----------->News ----------->Halo 4, 5 & 6 ---->BUNGiE Universe ---->The Gallery ---->The News ---->The Classifieds (i included a Music thread for anyone who hates seeing threads such as [i]what's your favourite song[/i] or [i]what are you listening to right now?[/i]) yay or nay?

  • Hell, let's just let the Flood govern themselves.

  • Well the flood are all consuming parasites..wait that's the game. Ahem..i mean the flood with there way off topics like Religion and Political threads(that are well hidden in some cases). If we organize it a little sure we might loose a few but most are trolls. If it is done it will be not overly done yet pleasing to the eye. Many Floodians do not like the idea of any change. Sooner or later they are going to have to join the rest of b.net. Change happens. If it does happen it will be for the good of all.

  • I think the Halo forums should be aggregated into one forum (or less forums), so we don't have to discuss Halo 4, 5, 6 etc on the Flood. Otherwise I disagree with the OP. And while we're on the subject, I think the Flood should just be called the Off-Topic. I know it's heresy, but hopefully it would stop misinformed kids into thinking that the Flood has a reputation on the internet, or is against 4chan or something.

  • Nay. What makes the Flood fun is never knowing what you're gonna find when you go in there.

  • Unlikes. Mainly because all of the sub-flood forums will die eventually.

    Why on earth would you divide the most active forum on Bnet?

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ian1706 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Make117 Horrible idea. Why would you want to divide the community into smaller segments? [/quote]This.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] jacob crawford 4 year floodian here. I actually like this idea, somewhat. Do I think that all of the categories are necessary? Erm, maybe not. Especially "y vs x" and "girl advice". However, I think having a "video game general" forum apart from the regular discussion might actually be rather nice. I don't think it would work now, though. While the Flood is steady in it's traffic, it isn't exactly busy enough to warrant these things. When Destiny comes out? I could see it working much, much better. An idea that might actually work I have thought of may be: -Consolidate the Halo game forums into Bungie Universe -Leave all other forums as is -Video game general -Flood It's just an idea, at least. Of course, Bnext will be here soon, right? So, may it isn't worth the "hassle". (I can't say I know how much hassle it would be, as I am no programmer)[/quote] I like the idea of the Video Game General, I cannot stand the recent insurrection of Halo 4 threads.

  • No, ruins what the flood has always been. Unorganized random content.

  • This isn't a site designed for Off-Topic Discussion. This would be taking it too far, leave The Flood how it is (whatever that may be).

  • I think that's a bit too much. I get the point but I disagree simply because the Flood doesn't have so much activity that it's out of control.

  • Sorry, but I don't like the idea. I believe the Flood forum is perfectly fine as it is, despite all the hate it receives from the commoners of ranting.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Invisible Voice First, off Crimson wasn't a failure. I thought it was good. Second, I have full confidence that Bungie will create the next biggest title, or at least something awesome. They're Bungie, for Bungie's sake. HAve a little faith. They aren't dark, they're just preparing to blossom again with ridiculous amounts of awesome.[/quote] Who said that ([i]Invisible Voice[/i])? - lol. Now Crimson. Think you are getting confused between '[i]Crimson Steam Pirates[/i]' (a [url=http://harebrained-schemes.com/]Harebrained Schemes[/url] game), and a [url=http://tsdr.uspto.gov/#caseNumber=85312530&caseType=SERIAL_NO&searchType=statusSearch]trademarked name 'Crimson'[/url] which was lodged and later abandoned when it was found to conflict with existing use. It was the [url=http://tsdr.uspto.gov/#caseNumber=77950813&caseType=SERIAL_NO&searchType=statusSearch]aerospace[/url] project which was meant to promote both ... but this too has also been abandoned. By any standard, a mobile platform publisher who can only get one title in two years is a failure - bungie obviously thought so given they have abandoned all hope. And next title. No one disputes they are creating a title, and given Activision has already paid out an advance on future sales I guess they will be upset to hear otherwise. Wasnt disputing the game ... only that bungie will not be hosting it here. Like the whole areospace (aka waste-of-space) experience, bungie will abandon this site and setup a fresh image which is not tainted by their past. In which case ... time to focus on whats left and restructure it into some sub forums.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Oh GodLike One [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Teleidoscope No, what's the point? It's not broken, therefore there's no need to fix it.[/quote] Doesnt matter if it is broken or not ... lets face it the mods arn't going to put in that extra effort. Still, close down those other pointless forums related to games that bungie dont care about ([i]hell, bungie even say so in the header of each post you make[/i]) ... and the Crimson forum - honestly, bungie has abandoned the project why not just close the forum and bury the embarrassment. Guess its just not part of the master plan. Cant see the new title being hosted in this site, bungie are going to want something clean and free of its past.[/quote] First, off Crimson wasn't a failure. I thought it was good.

  • I'm a Floodian, and I do not approve of this idea. It'd be a nightmare to control.
