Why did you kill the Humor and Sports forums?

Why? Can't you just kill Rules, News, and Feedback? It would be more useful to you.

    Because of the lack of activities in both sections we've decided to merge Sports with Cars and Humor with General Discussion.

    Did you put the old posts in the general discussion and humor category? @endeavor

    @endeavor There was a thread for all short jokes. Most jokes are short. That alone discouraged many posts.

    You should combine this forum into General Discussion.

    I believe that thread is currently pinned in General Discussion (link).

    Everything from both sections are combined including old threads/posts.

    What about people that bookmarked the threads or have external links to them? How will it affect them?

    The performers section is barely active. Yet its still up.

    I don't mind the cars and sports section combining. But humor with general discusssion? If you wonder why I'm saying that I can tell you why.

    Have you taken a look at why people can't get intersted in the threads on the forum?

    Lets talk about lack of activity. 3 months since this thread was made. How do things look now?

    In seeing the changes I felt that something is inconsistent. Other parts of the forum is lacking in activity too. There's a reason for them. I'm not saying it because I don't want to be obvious.

    Here is my opinion on what I suggest. I would merge cars with tech because they are more closely related. I would merge high school students and college students together. The general discussion has been a mess and is becoming even more of a mess now. Putting the humor section with it and not letting humor be on its own didn't help.

    Now in regards to why people can't get interested in the threads on the forum. Do you know why? It's because many threads have gotten stale and boring. So many threads have a post coming out with "because I said so" answers or other similar type of things. That's why the forum isn't fun.

    I must say that the forums are much less funny now. There's been an increase of racial threads in General Discussion and all the Humor has been pushed back a few pages.

    College Students and High School students should be separate but we also need activity from people who can contribute to those sections. There are threads that were pinned because there supposedly were experts to answer questions, but no one replies and there are pages of isolated questions that will never be answered. The administrators don't even look at that. Those threads were up there for years without anyone to do anything and no one even moderates those forums. High school has much more activity because the members there help each other and they sometimes have guidance from college students.

    I would have homework help subforums to allow more use of those forums and to actually make them productive.

    Car people like to keep things separate, but there doesn't seem to be much of anything going there. We should have input from actual users of that forum.

    Managing the forums actually can restart discussion through productivity, but almost no one seems to care.
