Hey everyone, Before you start freaking out that "Adam is taking everything away from us!!1" my objective here is to create more meaningful conversation, and thus more valuable content on the Underground forums. I know for various reasons they haven't been that active, and I want to try and change that (at least a little bit). What I've been doing is basically condensing all the free forums, and I'm pretty satisfied with how that has gone. I've moved threads and deleted the lesser-used forums to condense everything so more eyeballs would see the conversations and we'd get more discussion. Things are progressing as planned, so now I'm doing the same to the UG forums. I've changed "UG Hangout" to "UG General Discussion" so there would be no confusion with the regular "The Hangout." I then moved all the threads from "UG Deck Help and Strategy Advice" to "UG General Discussion" and deleted the aforementioned forum. We don't really have enough discussion going on to warrant a separate forum for deck help, plus people would often just post strategy related discussion in The Hangout, so it made sense to combine it all into one mishmash. Hopefully more eyes will see those threads now and more meaningful discussion will ensue. The last thing I want to get in order is this forum, "UG Deck Discussion." (I've momentarily changed the name to "UG Deck Depository" since that's slightly more descriptive of what it really is.) My original vision for this forum was to have a single thread for each deck out there, keep the first couple posts updated with a recent list and resources, then allow for conversation between you guys, the members. For the most part, there really hasn't been a whole lot of meaningful conversation generated here, and I'm not sure how helpful it even is that I update the threads each week. I haven't gotten much feedback about it. It takes me about 1 to 2 hours to update each time, and I don't know if I'm wasting my time. Part of the problem I think is that only a limited number of people can access the UG forums, only a small portion of them actually use the forums, and then an even smaller number view UG Deck Discussion. This makes it inevitably hard to get much convo going. Secondly, discussion gets spread out. If you have a question about a list from an article, it's better to comment on the article thread and have the author answer it. The writer's don't really comment here too much, but I require them to be active in their article threads, so it's understandable that you'd rather post there instead. So if this forum were to be removed, then really all discussion would have another (and likely) better place. Just use the article threads and general discussion for things you would talk about here. Heck, even the free Deck Discussion forum is pretty happening now, so you could head over there for help too. All that makes this a moot forum for meaningful discussion. However, I'm wondering if this would still be helpful as kind of a library or reference area for you guys. I would likely turn off all commenting and instead of updating the list in the first post of each thread, I would just add a new replies including updated lists. That way you could watch the progression of each deck over time. Is this even something that would be helpful? Or would I be wasting my time doing this and should just axe this forum completely? Let me know what you think.
