    Credits to Ragns for the title, who wanted something with BG in it for funs sake.

    This forum is all about the movies, music, anime, and television discussion. General is a mass of information and news but the media type discussion but there is a wealth of content in there that deserves its own forum. As with all sub forums, if it ends up not being popular enough we will merge it together.

    Enjoy


    Also, looking for a mod for this forum only, just to help move threads and keep the peace, though people are well behaved.

    Well now Gen has lost all that is good, it will revert to discussions on Peanut Butter and Penis size.

    Don't forget the "stupid people did stupid shit" news and the "another deformed child from India" news!

    If you're going to kill General, kill it now. When demand arises for subforums create them, and blackhole everything else into Spam. Unless there's some forum performance/bandwidth reason to shuffle active stuff into relatively inactive subforums.

    Carving 'off topic' high-activity stuff out of General and leaving the rest still there kind of takes the fun out of having a large and varied General board. I guess I'm grateful that vBulletin has a 'today's posts' quicklink or else I'd get quickly lost keeping track of the new threads that get scattered all over the boards.

    Btw, just a recommendation. Maybe the subforum link should also be added inside General like Gaming did.

    General is still general, random topics that are sometimes news related or whatever.

    These are specific topics, entertainment topics (with games excluded). Personally I favor this, as some of these topics I dread seeing drop to the 2nd page of general, or sifting through the 300 threads to find.

    Oh, nice. I'm happy with a section like this.

    Also, General won't die. There's tons of sports discussion there too :O

    I have to say, I don't like this trend.

    One of the reason I keep visiting BG long after I stopped playing FFXI is that the general section has everything in it.

    I made a FFXIII topic in general a couple days ago and it was locked, because there's already one in the RPG section under the gaming section... gee, I never go there, ever. I don't usually play RPGs, nor do I come to BG specifically to talk about gaming.

    I never go to most of the other discussion forums because I keep having to visit every sub sections to read what people are talking about. I really dread that BG will become just one of those other generic social sites.

    Please don't let it happen.
