Okay, let's go!We want to get some feedback from the community before going forward with this.
Not too fond of this idea, like many others. They're fine as they are. It's not like either board has a lack in activity anyway.- In the video gallery section, merge the Official Solves with Unofficial Solves forums and then use [Official] and [Unofficial] prefixes. Require a new thread to have one or the other.
Something that may be worth considering, is letting Unofficial WRs in the main WR/CR/NR board, perhaps? Although there would need to be a distinction between UWRs worthy enough to be in the board, and rubbish ones like "Most 3x3s solved while doing [mundane activity]", to avoid spam. Proboably a bad idea though, see sig.
But I like the b/s/t board! A small number of people getting scammed isn't really a legit reason to remove the board, for the same reason people shouldn't be banned from leaving their house at night because there's a risk they may be mugged. (Hyperbole, but you get my point.) Getting scammed is an unfortunate risk that could occur in ALL parts of the internet where an exchange in money/goods is involved. It's not going to stop the amount of scams happening, it just means it'll happen somewhere else.Remove buy/sell/trade forum - while it is useful, we aren't eBay or Amazon and don't want people being scammed here. We advise people sell elsewhere or at competitions in person.
And like you said, it is useful. There are some good deals to be found on there, and I like there being an exclusive part of the internet for the trade of second hand speedcubes.
I'm okay with these.- Merge the Hardware Help/Questions forum into Hardware Discussion forum, and make a sticky for "Basic Hardware Help/Questions Thread".
- Merge General Cubing Help/Questions (it's dead) into Speedcubing Help/Questions.
- Remove the "Constructive Discussions" category, and put everything under the "General Discussions" category. Merge the "General Puzzle Discussion" forum with "Constructive Speedcubing Discussion". Having them separate doesn't make much sense and encourages people to not actively seek constructive discussions. Don't we want all discussions to be constructive?
- Merge Non-Twisty Puzzles & Games into Off-Topic.
Sure? Not really my place to say, I can't post there.- Get rid of the Private Forum.
