There's already Fan Corner.

My problem is with the name "fan corner". It doesn't really make sense to me why original things would go there. The name has that kind of "derivative work" vibe.

If it weren't 5.33 am, I'd be willing to expand my comments.
For now, I'm not not in favour of your suggestions. (double not key to make sense of this crap of a sentence).

"View new posts" is the way forwards.

As for the whole "fan corner" thing. As far as I can tell the only real suggestion there is a change of the name (and corresponding description). I'm all for that, anything that makes something more general increases the potential for new topics and thus the life of the site.

Maybe within a more general "original content" section there could be a subpart for work that is specifically fan based. "Member galleries" could even be subsumed into this.

I was also thinking on adding another category: Entertainment.
This category would have:
.Games
.Movies
.Literature
.Music

In addition to revamping the "fan works" to fit the suggestions placed, each of the forums above posted would also feature direct links to the respective user-created forum.

What say you guys?

We already have a fair few of those categories, but I'm a fan of organisation! Collecting them together and adding a few others would be swell.

Yeah, I know we have them, I just want, like you said, improve organisation and ease of navigation.

Or maybe even give games their own category, that way we could have:
RPG
RTS
Action
Adventure
Simulation

Thoughts?

There can be a such a thing as too many categories. I'd just leave it at games atm, if it gets crowded we can always break off the popular genre into its own subsection.

Yeah, too many would clutter it.

I'm assuming the Jurassic park universe subforum would be put on another page, though?

Stop being so reasonable, it makes you awfully hard to mock.

I appologise for not being able to fit your mocking needs. :D:
