Have created Politics, Off Topic Items, Media etc and Play Pen then made the different forums a member of each.

I wanted Sand Pit to be separate from Off Topic, thus getting back to the Politics–Off Topic—Sand Pit of the PA that I have known since Adam was a boy. Also Sand Pit is for letting the hair down, for play, unlike the other forums.
Now to get rid of the Threads/Messages/Last Post crap to make the front page nice and uncluttered, ready for someone to turn it into a visual delight.

Hmmm the category name (Politics, Off topic Items) should be bolder than the Forum name (Australian Politics, Off Topic)

Be nice to get rid of the Home button and Political Animal Australia.

PAA should be in the header bar and Home just brings us back to where we are! Useless!

Those 2 elements gone we can have the category/forum list move up.

Hmmm! Could put the invisible boards into a category called “The Illuminati!”

Ha!

Is that the info you get when you put the cursor over a Poster's icon/avatar.?

If YES I quite like it, because you can see where someone is showing interest, but also you can gauge whether your own posts are interesting. .

OK, I have asked on the XenForo customer page how to get rid of the profile posts on the front page.

Wow, reply already!

Profile posts listing pm home page—gone!

No, I think they tried to put too much stuff in. Remember Trophies right at the start? Like we were kids!

OK, moved the forum list a bit in from the left edge of the screen, looks nicer IMHO

I got rid of forum stats below the listing of the forums and boards. It is in the side bar.

Monk.. all these separate topics could be in one place, couldn't they..? instead of multiple topics on essentially the same thing?. I am sure I suggested an additional topic/whatever about health.. somewhere ,... as being a gap in the Board. Can I find it now..?? NO. And no reply.

@pinkeye

Sorry, Pinky, never saw nothing about health. Like Technology which DRAH suggested I said there wouldn’t be enough posts to warrant a tech board and think Health would be the same. Media has two constant streams of posts, Songs and Netflix.

I think US elections could be archived once that is all over, reducing board count by one.

What about a Technology and Health? Not too farfetched: tech has detrimental effects on health (just wait until AI is in wide use and jobs disappear so rapidly your head will spin) but tech is also used to support health, from crutches to fully motorised wheel chairs controlled by eyes to operations using elaborate machinery. Tech for nuke and RE will go in the AGW board.

If you have some posts in mind I can create a Health board (Politics or Off Topic?) no probs.

My suggestion is that you don't over do it .. it'll end up cluttering the main page and most will remain empty. There are more than enough boards to discuss health or technology if you wish.
