In order to simplify the forum and make it easier to navigate, we're going to do some reorganization.

Here are the proposed changes:
1. Merge Puzzle Building Forum with Hardware
2. Merge WCA Regulations into General Cubing or Official WCA Comps.
3. Merge Example Solves into General Cubing.
4. Merge Other Cubing-Related Vids with Puzzle Solving Videos.
5. Merge One Answer One Question into Cubing Help.

As a community, what do you think about these changes? Are there other changes you suggest? Your feedback is appreciated. The goal of this community is to make it a useful and fun resource for you, the community. We need your feedback to continue to do that. Thanks.

1. Although it could help, I don't think its that great of an idea, to me there is a difference between the two for sure. And if the Puzzle Building Forum just dies, then the problem is solved :)

2. I think merging WCA Regs with Official WCA comps (making it a sticky thread thing) would be a good idea. Leave General alone.

3. Leave apart.

4. Merge Other Cubing Related Vid to Puzzle Solving Videos

5. Merge One Answer One Question into Cubing help

Hope it helps, and I appreciate your continued work into keeping this site working!

I think @Duncan Bannon has it right :)
edit: can we go back to the old emoji's? These ones look a bit odd

Ah, can you send a link or screenshot to which ones in particular you liked?
Now that I'm looking I can't find them anywhere! It was the ones used before the recent site changes, the smilies looked more pixilated I guess? The : D face was green and the : p face was pink, and all the emoji's were smaller.

I agree with point 4 and 5.
I've went ahead and merged Other Cubing-Related Vids with Puzzle Solving Videos, renaming the new forum "Puzzle Video Gallery" for all general puzzle videos that aren't NR/WR. I've also merged the One Answer One Question forum into Cubing Help.
