We've been thinking about simplifying MAP for years now, so I wanted to explain some of the thinking behind this, and invite suggestions from our community before we start the process. I can't guarantee that all suggestions individuals may make will be acted upon, but likewise I'm not saying that the structure we move to will be the final structure either, so do feel free to add your thoughts. MAP grew from humble beginnings into a site that catered for a wide variety of interests. We still want to be that place. Whatever art you train in, we're here "to bring people together for the purpose of the friendly exchange of information relating to the study of the Martial Arts and associated topics." Of course, if you're going to claim big, you'd better have big proof, ain't nobody got time for no flim flam. But you are as welcome here if your interest is Tai Chi as if it is Muay Thai. As the site grew, it tried to accommodate all interests, and as a website, you have to appreciate the fact that it is run by martial artists who are also geeks. These fine people added forums in the structure of folders/directories on a PC, resulting in sub forums, subdivisions (in the high school halls, in the shopping malls), and general refining to a fault. When websites were browsed exclusively by PC this made sense. Apparently. Don't ask me, I like poetry and operate a keyboard via headbutts, but they made a good call at the time. Now, however, the reality is that more than half of our traffic is from mobile devices, and a complex forum structure is not as easy to manage on a small screen. I personally always browse via New Posts, but many do not, and new users certainly do not, and do not really know where to put their first post. So the intention is to merge a number of forums together, to greatly simplify the structure. No content will be lost. Everything will be kept, but several forums will be merged together. At the moment the intention is to keep almost all the style forums as separate forums, but merge many of the forums that come under Articles, General, Off Topic, Health and Fitness, Fun and Games etc into just a few forums. This will hopefully make it much easier for newcomers to know where to post, and quicker for experienced users to browse. It won't happen tomorrow, because this kind of thing needs to be tested and takes time to do, and it may happen in stages, so if you have any particular concerns or requests then now is the time to voice them so they can taken into account. No, not those suggestions Chimp, that's just dirty. If you follow or refer to particular threads often, make sure you have notifications etc switched on, then if they end up in an unfamiliar place, you will still be able to find them. If you do have any comments or suggestions, please comment on this thread.
