    Basically, as stated a million times before by many others before me, take out the sections that people complained to have and now aren't utilizing.

    However, my main concern is the Games Universe, it seems a bit all over the place with the sub-forums only drawing a few people at a time. Nobody's posting in some sub-sections, it's as simple as that. If it's not active and they complain more once it's taken down, they can go to Upcoming Games or Popular/Classic Games.

    There are four sub-sections involving Call of Duty. There are currently 130+ people in Call of Duty Series, while the others aren't quite as active (aside from MW & IW). Just throw those in Call of Duty Series and people will still go to it and use it. I don't believe there needs to be multiple sub-sections for one series despite the current spotlight. (Same goes for Battlefield 1/Battlefield Series.)

    TLDR: Delete inactive forums and merge those that are popular so there aren't 500 sections.

    I know my ideas aren't perfect and there are short-term and long-term pros/cons to changes such as these on a forum, but with enough thought and a little bit of effort, I don't think this would be a hard thing to solve.

    Going to throw this out there, no one here gives the slightest shit about Vita or it would be posted about around here lol.
    Im going through sections now with Outsider and merging and removing ones that are dead or just don't need as many sections.

    That's your opinion, and you're welcome to keep it. As for the second part, that's good to hear.

    What sections/sub-sections did you merge/remove? No disrespect whatsoever, but I don't see anything different lol.

    Ah, okay. Your response to Frosty made it seem as if it were being done then and there. I think maybe you should go through the ones in your list (I'm assuming you're going by activity), list them out and post them, asking the community if they're all good with the changes. It makes them feel more involved.

    Just an idea. Instead of going through and doing it between two people. Would help with PR, too.

    Well technically it would be at least 4-6 people counting Kryptus, Loes, Laim, and perhaps Gryphus (or another CM)
