I've been posting on PA for quite a while, and the longer I've spent here the more I've noticed that the individual boards (especially the larger ones - SE++, G&T and D&D), don't mingle with one another.
Personally I tend to hang around in SE more than anything, occasionally poking my head into G&T and the tech section there. Sometimes I read a bit of D&D, but I find it's not particular easy to jump into some of the longer, more active threads. It's also a little disconcerting to find that I don't know any of the posters, as very few of the regulars there are people who post in SE++.
While I'm not the person to be making any changes to how the forums are structured, I'd like to know if anyone else has had similar experiences, and whether or not they think the forum segmentation is a good/bad thing.
I'd love to see some intra-forum activities (kinda like Trivia with Ramius from a while ago), which will get people from the various boards mingling and talking with each other. Perhaps some kind of tri-forum tournament. But maybe something more drastic, like some kind of horrific merger (D&G&T&DSE++) is in the cards. It's up to you.
Haha, no it isn't. It's up to Tube.
