    Posted: 21/September/2015 at 04:31
I was looking at a thread where people got to talking about a new layout.  If you don't mind, I came up with one.  Now whether you want to use it or not is entirely up to you.  

WWE
Subforums:
Raw
SmackDown
NXT
Main Event
(any others I may have missed.  I don't have WWE Network so I may have missed some.)

NON WWE ORGANIZATIONS:
TNA
ROH
(any others?)

Not quite sure how to title this one but I'm in the U.S. so I chose this:
INTERNATIONAL WRESTLING
British
Quebec
Puroresa

OLD SCHOOL
1) I think Wrestlers of the World could go under here but the deal is a lot of the topics under this are current stars.  Why not have a Current Wrestlers of the World and then Classic Wrestlers of the World?
2) What about Old School/Former Companies under here?  (ECW, AWA, etc.?)

CREATIVE ZONE
A Writer's Perspective
Main Event Radio 

GENERAL SPORT
Football (soccer to me)
NFL
MLB
NHL
NBA
MMA
TENNIS
(whatever else you'd like to add)

ENTERTAINMENT
Music
Television
Film

GAMING
General
Retro

CONNECTIONS/GENERAL CHAT
or just separate the two

MEDIA
PRIVATE

STAFF
SUGGESTIONS & QUESTIONS 


I did not take anything away that is already on here.  I just made it into sections.  It's your board so if you want to use this, you are welcome to.  If you don't, that is fine too.

Funny, the site went down that night right after you posted this. I thought maybe Webby was going ahead with your changes or something. :p

Part of me wants to say add NJPW, AAA, and Lucha Underground because these are easily the next most popular promotions aside from TNA, ROH, and WWE, but you're probably counting NJPW under Puroresu and AAA could probably be counted under a Lucha Libre category.

Personally, I would broaden British and Quebec by making them Europe and Canada respectively.
Wouldn't hurt to add a US Independent category here as well, not to mention the aforementioned Lucha.

Just been looking at the layout and it needs a bit of updating, here's a few suggestions from me.....

General WWE, Raw and Smackdown Live of course are fine, Superstars needs to be removed and NXT really should just have its own exclusive section as at this point it's very much a third brand and will get far more discussion than TNA and ROH which both have their own sections. It might be worth merging TNA and ROH but I guess it's worth keeping them separate to see what the future holds for them both.

I would remove Main Event Radio and Quebec Wrestling, dead pointless sections.

Introduce a WWE Network section, so much content to discuss as well as chat on general Network use etc.

Think the rest of the forum is fine, not so sure we need a Wrestlers of the World section as topics on individual wrestlers can easily be merged into the other sections. I would maybe drop British wrestling and just have a International section which as well as Brit can include Japan and other non US stuff.

Agree with getting NXT on it's own as it really is the third brand. You could get Superstars and 205 live under the General WWE discussion banner.

I would keep TNA/ROH as it is but perhaps look into just having the rest of the Indy/International scene under one section.

I agree with removing some of the dead stuff as if we're trying to entice new members, we need to be showing active forums.

Rest is fine, though I would look at re-writing the Staff Announcements description haha. When was the last time Mr Willy was online?

Suggestions taken on board and i'll change them bit by bit because it took long enough to move all Superstars related threads into General WWE unless i've missed any still lurking in the new NXT only section LOL Changed the section write up.

Removed the name of Willy from our Suggestions write up and demoted him from moderator to just a PB member because he's not signed in for over two years and his Facey is dead so dunno where he is or what's happened to him.

Will get around to the rest like a 205 sub forum in General WWE and getting rid of some other sections like Main Event Radio and putting it into a General Wrestling section.

Dead sections for different types of wrestling have been made sub forums in General Wrestling.

All the Main Event Radio topics are in General Wrestling as normal topics and that forum section deleted.

Will still make a 205 Live sub forum in General WWE so people can find the threads easier in that section.

Suggestion - why not make 205 Live a sub forum of Raw as that is the brand the Cruiserweights are attached to.

Removing the dead sections is smart as when newbies come to a forum and see non existent sections it's off putting. Giving NXT a stand alone section is a good move too as the brand has a very strong following among the internet community.
Another little change might be to rename the ECW sub forum in the General WWE section as ECW and WCW as both companies are now WWE owned although in fairness all chat relating to those companies could easily be part of a WWE Network section.

I still think a WWE Network section is the way forward.

Reading through the descriptions could "Connections" and "Introduce Yourself" be merged are both mention introducing yourself/member announcements so kind of makes sense.

However it looks a lot fresher now which is awesome.
