    Can we get tool tips for the Age of Sigmar subforums? Or change to descriptive rather than thematic names to begin with? It's kind of annoyingly unclear which subforum is what, and threads of assorted types are scattered throughout, rendering the entire point of subforums moot. Heck, traffic isn't so busy that separate subforums are necessarily even justified to begin with. Consolidation, with the onus on individual posters to make their thread names descriptive, would be better than the current situation, what with there being several subforums and no clear distinguishing mark of what types of threads go in which.

    That would be useful, and I can only agree with Malisteen.
    just my two cents

    They are not so difficult to work out once you've been here for a while, however, I agree that they are less than obvious for new members to the community. I also agree that merging some boards together would probably be a wise idea, in view of the activity levels.

    It's true. Despite all the whining when AoS started it appears as if 9th age, Kings of War and 8e don't have nearly as much activity as AoS.

    The way things are, it would probably be possibly to just have one board for all 9th Age Discussion, one for King's of War, and one for Age of Sigmar, rather than to have separate general discussion, army list, battle report, and tactics boards for each. It may be a bit premature to go that far though.

    I'd also like to emphasise that I'm criticising the staff or members here at all regarding activity. Forums are struggling in the face of competition from Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, blogs, and other social media platforms, and have been declining since around 2010 as a result of this competition. Hopefully, the circle will turn back towards forums in the future.
