Cull the stickies.

 

As Drew has said, we normally leave this to the individual moderators of each forum -- but I think you're right -- they need some attention.  I'm planning to have a look through them all, do some clean-up and re-formatting and then offer a set of specific suggestions to each forum moderator.  Time to clear out some clutter and make sure everything is still relevant and helpful.

 

//EDIT:  I've made a start on cleaning up the formatting in most of them and removing some dead links -- looks like there definitely are at least some good resources left there -- I'm sure we'll be able to do a good clean-up though. smile.png

 

 

Split Visual Arts into separate 2D and 3D forums. How on Earth is it still one forum?

 

I'd actually agree with this, they should really be separate.  Our normal rule for creating an additional forum has been that we do so when topics (threads) covering that particular topic start to be numerous enough to warrant it, and at the moment the visual arts forum containing both topics is still one of our least busy.  Do you think splitting out the separate topics into their own forums might actually help to encourage more discussion?  Our worry is creating "ghost town" forums where any topics that are posted end up going un-answered.
