    Just wondering if we will get some feedback regarding the current shuffling of boards. What is the reasoning behind it and what are you aiming to achieve by the end? In addition, will there be any consultation or is it a case of chopping and changing until you find an acceptable format?

    It just seems strange that the UK board has been changed from what was quite a good layout and instead all of the subforums have been expanded out. It just adds clutter and confusion. Surely we should be reducing or compacting boards that don't get regular use as opposed to changing what works? In my mind it is 'other sports' and the likes of 'women's football' that should be altered first to streamline the BS experience.

    Bit of a ramble but cheers for any comments.

    Its utter crap.

    The France forum has been tucked away into obscurity now.

    [sarcasm]
    Thanks guys!
    [/sarcasm]

    And we want more traffic? :rolleyes:

    Also, when were regulars and mods notifed of the change? Were we even asked, did we complain about the old system?

    Hmmmmm...

    -Italy Clubs

    Spain
    -Spain NT
    -Spain Clubs

    Portugal
    -Portugal Clubs
    -Portugal OT
    -Portugal NT

    Eastern Europe
    -FSU
    -Poland
    -Croatia
    -Czech Rep
    -Serbia +Mont.

    The current setup is not satisfying at all...

    The section on England is still way too confusing. How is "other clubs" different from "all clubs?"

    Let's see. In all clubs there is a list of clubs. If your team isn't on that list, I guess you are an "other club".

    that's not true. belgium was just a subforum out of the holland forum. I meant that it's a pain finding it on the page now...as it was big with all of the other major european ones before.

    yeah, it's still on the main forum list, just smaller, that's all. Less easy to find for the novice user, I suppose. It's not really a big problem, just kinda annoying and something to get used to, I guess.

    In all seriousness Huss, I understand what you are trying to do but the new England section is a bit of a muddle. The previous layout was far better on the eye and made sense. I don't see the point in shifting boards around if it will just make sections on the main page larger. Surely some of the other sections should be streamlined in order to reduce the overall clutter?

    I disagree. I really like the new layout, especially the Premiership portion.

    So? It's a reorganization. I like that the main Premiership board is now separate from the club boards. I also like that they added a forum to catch the other English teams that don't have their own board.

    Oh, and separating Belgium and Holland was a good move. I never really understood why Belgium was a subforum of Holland anyway.

    What does it matter what's new and what's moved?

    Read my previous posts. If it's not broke don't fix it and if the aim was to reduce clutter, the current England format has only added more.

    I quite like ganu's idea - North, South, and East. Anything but "More Europe Country Forums"

    I think the Holland forum has enough posters and enough posts (more than France ;)) to justify itself being on the main European board list.

    I think that the Scotland (and Wales and Northern Ireland) board needs to be moved back to where it was. Apart from a few regulars the traffic has gone to practically zero.

    To echo what Toon² stated, I received several PM's asking what had happened to the board and where was it. The lack of communication regarding the shuffle has confused a lot of people.

    Hmmmmm. I think a little board announcement on the top of the forum page, could have helped?

    But yeah, if France gets on the main page - I think Holland should do too. Only because of the amount of Ajax fans.... :p

    The rest can stay where they are, they constitute small imo.
