Making two different 'types' of threads... For Example.... Yes, I know we have a separate thread for "Show your Blasters here", but these forums seem cluttered because making a 'discussion' is almost impossible because they end up being a "msn chat" type thread, which should be allowed unless they're very silly comments such as "True," instead of "True, I'll try to do that, any idea how?" as an example.
Modification Showcase (or Write-Up) / Discussion (Oh my god I need help with a gun)
Homemade Showcase / Discussion
Nerf Gun Showcase / Discussion (we already have one [General Nerf] as a separate thread, but using it as an example)
But, I'm just saying, I reckon it would be a little better if we had discussion and showcase topics to separate the discussion from the real guns, as I'm sure everyone who begins to navigate through this sites for mods have trouble finding it because there is a large mixture discussion (w/o pictures) and small amounts of actual modification (w/ pictures).
Also, I've always wondered, with those 'spam' questions you end up locking it up, but never do you ever delete it, I thought admins have the power to do so.
For example, Looking for Aj's write up within the modification section is a bitch because even though it clearly says " Writeup - AirTech 2000 - AT 2k - ridiculously easy, non destructive barrel replacement. + Pump Plugged ", but how did I try to find that? I had to go through all this shit about "Oh my god my gun doesn't work, do you think this mod will work? HELP!!!," Type topics before I actually find this write up. Unless we have a directory (which we shouldn't need one because 'apparently' we're trying not to be a NH) then it'll be much easier to navigate through the forums...
I've always wondered why admins lock the thread? isn't there a way you can delete the topic completely? If you guys are trying to avoid cluttering up of the forum, why don't you just delete it?
