All these sub categories are really really stupid.

I've been a member around here for years now. I used to frequent the forums a lot back when Marvelousnews didn't exist and it was simply just a branch off of toynewsi. When Marvelousnews came out, the forum as far as I'm concerned was completely destroyed. Every imaginable topic is now a subcategory. Now, if anyone posts any subject that could possibly link two subjects together, it can be moved around by a mod at their discretion to a thread no one ever frequents.

I miss being able to discuss all things Marvel in one section. Now, whenever I post, I have to make half my concern whether or not I'm posting it in the right area, just so some condescending half-wit mod won't move my thread and try to make me feel like an idiot for posting it there.

All these subcategories should be abolished. There's no reason that Marvel Universe figures or Icons or anything else should need their own section. It should just be all together since the only real difference between a lot of these figures are their height.

Furthermore, many of these subcategories are hardly EVER frequented. Many of the video game categories and some of the other various extremely specific threads for tv shows and the like are never viewed. Even if no one was ever interested in them, at least with all the categories together, that thread would slowly move down in the list of active threads. This would actually validate people not being interested in a thread. Now they're just hidden away in a place no one would read anyway.

What the forum SHOULD have for categories are "Action Figure and Collectables", "Movies and TV", "Comics", "Customs", "Arcade World" , etc. I don't understand how it could possibly be perceived as efficient to have an "Arcade World" category with the subcategory "Video Games", when there are other subcategories for specific video games. So, if I post something about Marvel Ultimate Alliance, would that go in the "Video Game" section, or the "Ultimate Alliance" thread? No one should be bothered with that. That shouldn't be an issue and it never was until this "revamp".

As the old saying goes, if it's not broken, don't fix it.

There used to be a way you could view all of the categories in one thread, but I'm not sure that still exists. If so, I'd like the link for that.

I really wanted to get that off my chest. I've noticed since this whole big change, many of the really good people that posted and frequented this forum have left. It no longer feels like everyone knows everyone. It just feels like a segregated jungle.
