I'm sure Lades and the rest of EF will work it out...
Well, I didn't remove general, I just brought the two subsections in it to the main page.

Beyond that (if it can be called so), there'll be no major restructuring, just a "cleaning up" so to speak which is actually long overdue.

Will general be an option again - so I don't have to pick both the sub sections everytime...?

You cna just click "Main Sector" on the main page to simulate what "General" did. It'll include Announcements and Meeting Hall and such too.

And I'm re-organizing Coffee House (as is obvious) and before I go any further, I was wondering people's thoughts on merging History and Battlefield, since they serve similar purposes.

So the politics of Britan circa 1500 would be in the same forum as laser guided nuclear bombs? If you say so.

But they're both ideas that need to be serious. More light hearted threads does not mean they're not serious. Those ideas should not be spammed up and do to the touchyness of some issues I think its a good idea to have an active mod (me) looking over the topics.

Also, I really don't see the problem of just leaving General on the main page...

They ARE often serious, but that doesn't means they always should be, or have to be. And I watch over those kinds of threads enough that I doubt we really need an active mod, especially when the DT gets the majority of such discussion anyways (though the DT topics are often .

And honestly, General WAS just filler. You can simulate General (in terms of browsing Coffee House and AG at the same time) by clicking Main Sector instead. It'll just have the Meeting Hall, Announcements, and LotGD at the top of the list. THAT's why General was superfluous.

like it's been said in the staff forum...

in our case smaller is better. it'll make the forum much easier to navigate for people that are just getting here. we've had a lot of unnecessary forums floating around here for a long time... most of which are leftovers from when EF was really young. As long as people can still clearly see where everything is supposed to be posted at it really doesn't matter how things are structured... but with the way things were it was too cluttered up to find some things.

I think it's a terrible idea, in the "worst thing that could happen to those forums" sense. I use them when I specifically don't want a thread to be nazied up, so if they're in the DT then I'd have to go... where? The Rec Room? Anything Goes? Fuck that.

Technically I'm out on a bit of a limb since he seemed to pull that quote from thin air and never named names, but the point pretty much stands regardless of the topic: the DT is just a supplement of other subjects, not the other way around.

What's "City Landfill" and why does it matter?

While I don't necessarily agree with your apprasial of the "active mod" part, you're more or less right about the DT's purpose. It's for discussing a broad spectrum of things, kind of the "Rec Room" of serious discussion. While the DT's contents are supposed to be serious (since light-hearted DT-style topic would go into the Rec Room), Politics and Religion don't HAVE to be always serious, meaningful discussions, and shouldn't be.

It's kind of like other Coffee House forums. You can have serious, meaningful discussions about anime in Anime & Manga, or you can have general "waht anime do you like" threads." Likewise, you can have serious political discussions about the state of world affairs, or you can have "what party do you like" topics. Note that the latter wouldn't fit in with the DT's atmosphere and intentions, unless you expanded it to be "What are your political beliefs and how do they tie into other aspects of life" or something. Being subforums of DT binds them to the DT's rules, and such a sentiment will remain in people's hearts even if 'special' rules are posted in the forums specifically altering the rules from the DT. People would likely just assume that the same strict DT rules apply there too, stifling activity.

Basically, DT is intended specifically for debate and intelligent discourse specifically. Religion and Politics are general purpose forms oriented towards those topics, no different than Anime & Manga, Sports, Food, and so on. Their fundamental purpose differs from DT, and thus shouldn't be subforums thereof.

As for City Landfill, its a special Compost Bin for Anything Goes section. Mass-moving threads between Postcount On and Postcount Off forums can cause problems with postcounts, so I made it to avert that in the future.
