Those seem unobjectionable to me...but I don't care about any of them. I suspect that Daito Ryu could have a future, but since I suspect most of those folks just breeze through once a year and never post, agree with archiving it.

Should we have a poll on it?

Then there is the thread Ed points to. What about those?

That does sound like a mighty fine idea.

I second!

Works for me as well, Ed. But maybe instead of Conditioning put "General Fitness and Nutrition" ?

I've been watching you guys ... a lot of "green" on this board ... or at least I see green for the background I chose.

Am I getting this correct that you are wishing to get rid of some forums and combine them into one or more? That instead of Strengthening being its own entity that it would be combined with Nutrition, Breathing, Stretching and Body Mechanics?

This may or may not be a good idea but definitely something workable, though I rarely visit any of the others on this list or some not at all. What would happen with the Moderators? It has been my belief that Moderators are chosen due to their knowledge in that particular area ... on top of making sure things don't get out of hand. A Moderator may only be proficient in a few areas that you combine but may be out of their league in others ... that would then defeat the point. Plus by combining you may need further Moderators to pick up the extra traffic.

I'm wondering what kind of criteria would be used to decide to put forums together and not keeping as their own? Is it because of limited people visiting those forums? From what I can see there are many that don't get visited often that include Judo/Jujitsu, Daito Ryu, Martial Arts Tales & Stories, Jeet Kune Do, Krav Maga, Karate, Kung Fu/Chinese Art, BJJ/MMA and the list goes on. However you don't want to combine any of these as they are their own entity.

The biggest forums used are Martial Art Talk (general info as well as a gathering ground for everybody), Strengthening, TKD (though seems too full of youngins), and Self Defense/Street Combat.

The thing with forums is you can't please everybody but you try to make the best of things with what you have so people who are into Hapkido go to the Taekwondo or Martial Arts Talk forums. Boxing goes with MMA. And so on. Combining some sections means you will have to comb through many of the threads to get to what you are actually after. In my case in Strengthening which I call more home, I'd have to comb through breathing and stretching and body mechanics and nutrition to get to what I'm looking for or what I can help others with. The same would go for others.

I'm probably over stepping my boundaries ... sorry ... not my intention. Just another voice in the wind ... my two cents. Of course we would adapt if necessary ... just what is necessary?
