Well, by default when anyone goes to the forum the art is always going to be burying the normal topics because there is more art than normal topics.
And like you said: it’s nice to see all the new topics in every category in the same location. If I clicked on lets say only the “Panzer Dragoon related topics” I’d only see that and might miss a “Sega” topic or an “Other games” topic.
It’s just the main problem is the countless art submissions are taking the fore front and it’s annoying to have to scroll down 7 or 8 art contributions to get back to the normal topics. It’s very cluttered imo. And sometimes there can be 10 or more art contributions filling up the forum.
We might be in a discussion about say Panzer Dragoon Saga and then the next day it gets burred under 10 art submissions…
If you made two subdivisions from the forum link, “art” and “Discussion” there is no way we still wouldn’t be able to use sort by new submissions in the “art section” and sort by “Panzer Dragoon”, “Other Games”, etc. in the “Discussion” section? That way all of the new art contributions could be in one neat place.
You would just have two separate branches. With the sort by “Panzer Dragoon”, “Other Games”, etc. still being contained in the “Discussions” branch.
