General Announcements is CLUTTERED
So I'm still new to these forums (I got approved yesterday :D), but I've noticed the General Announcements are really cluttered with posts that really don't belong (clan recuitments, art stuff, etc). Have the admins considered locking General Announcements to make it just for them to post in? It's annoying to scroll through it just to find posts that are very out of place.
Sadly, this forum is full with kids, who believe that their own 'announcements' and personal stuff belongs there too because the admins didnt lock it from them (And not just general announcements but all the other announcements sections too). Little do they know, that the announcements forum section is for the official news posts from the admins, a place where we can seek out and review old and new announcements regarding the site and the game. However, since everyone posts there, finding these news posts is a nuisance.
Do not waste your time with a suggestion like this. People will hate you for it. I have so many times mentioned this in any form possible and people shot it down, saying I was wrong. Well, you can try but dont bring your hopes up. At all, actually. Just accept the fact that people love their cluttered trash forum, where they can post anywhere they want without regards to the order and the differences between the forum sections. And when you point it out, they will chew your out too instead of actually thinking about it.
But hey, maybe I spent too much time on real official forums where people actually knew how the structure of a forum worked. For me, it is logical and second nature already.
Anyway, I warned you. Proceed with caution.
I always feel like people just close their eyes and point at a random category and post their thread in there.
Thanks for this thread though, this stuff has bothered me since the very beginning.
I agree very much my friend
I'm glad someone else here realizes this. It's been bugging me since 2014. Sadly, there will be people to give you backlash for voicing your opinion on this because the majority of new people on here post in General Announcements. Also, welcome to the forums! Let's hope you can overlook that annoying mess of a main page and enjoy your time here.
