Double-posting for organization purposes.

Spoiler for Anything else to do with RM Boards - Resources, Scripts, etc.:
Parent boards are seriously starting to grind my gears. ._. They need to have posts, otherwise they look empty, but they don't always have a clear, consistent purpose. By clicking "scripts", I wouldn't expect the parent board topic to be about scripting help, and then requests/rmvxa/rmvx/rmxp to be child boards of that. It's just a little odd to me. I kinda wish there was a way we could do away with parent board posting and just have child boards. But once again, that might look a little tacky. ;_; Unless we used them for rules and stickies or something important. But even then, it'd still be hollow.

Ranting aside, I'd ultimately be fine with leaving scripts/resources the same. :p

Spoiler for "Community Chat", "News & Debate", "Video Games & Entertainment":
I'm still backing these three merges. :V

Spoiler for Disperse topics in the child boards of Trading into the parent and delete the children:
I kind of  like the use of the child boards here for browsing ease purposes, but I'm not necessarily against the idea of dispersing them. 8)

In regards to scripts and event systems.... Have you guys thought about possibly doing it up like we have over on CP? It's pretty easy to navigate, and we've never gotten a complaint about how it's organized... Just a thought...

Because we're not changing the site around, nor looking from suggestions from users. It was a suggestion. If you don't like the suggestion, simply ignore it =p

I like that finished projects is the root section, because it gives more exposure to work that people have completed.

Alright, I cleaned up the Projects boards and combined them. I called it "Projects in Progress" for now, but would be open to suggestions for a better name.

Also, so far the votes have gone 6-0 for merging Video Games & Entertainment, so I think I will do that too. I will update the poll.

Alright, I added the three easily votable-on changes to the poll and gave each user 3 votes to choose as they wish. If you didn't realize that and only voted for 1, you may remove your vote and vote again. I don't want to disperse the trading boards anymore, but I left it as an option in case I am in the minority.

I think the other things (RM Boards, Archiving, creating new categories) all require more discussion before they can be implemented.

For archiving, would it be a good idea just to create a sticky in this Board where people could post suggestions for archiving topics?

I highly approve of the merge; I kinda thought having two separate boards for projects-in-progress was a bit much, to be honest.

Perfect timing, too, since I'm gonna have my game finished in the next 7 days or so. Yaaayy   :blizj: :blizj: :blizj:

General Chat and Community should be merged, but we should retain the name General Chat. It's clear and all-encompassing, whereas I feel Community Chat isn't and could be seen as nothing more than a board for discussing community-related matters.

Alright, there weren't any No votes to merging Community and General Chat nor to making News & Debate a child Board of it, so I did both. I agreed with Irock too, so I left it as General Chat. I also made most of the changes to the stickies that Strike recommended, but I left the RMRK Wiki and IRC Quotes & Chatlogs up. However, that does leave us with 7 stickies, so if you guys think those topics or any of the others should be unstickied, please make suggestions.

Also, while this might be contrary to the overall "Simplify" theme of this aptly named thread, I was thinking maybe we could make Bean Bags a parent-level board. It isn't quite as fitting a child to General Chat as it was to Community, and I think it could deserve to be a little more prominent. I don't have any strong desire to do that since I've never really visited that board much, but just wanted to see what you guys think.

I'm not sure about unstickying it, but the title of the IRC Quotes thread needs to have the crankeye.org part removed since the site doesn't work anymore (and FFShrine downvoted all the RMRK quotes into oblivion when it was last working anyway).

Maybe we should consider unstickying Post Your Picture since it gets posted in often enough that it will stay towards the top anyway. The What Are You Eating thread would be a candidate for that too, I think. But I think keeping them all stickied is fine too, so long as we don't add any more.

I can understand moving Bean Bags out and making it its own board. In fact I would vote for that. It no longer fits very well where it is.

I like all the changes so far!

Well for whatever it's worth:
IMHO What Are You Eating?, Signature And Avatar Rating,  and Post Your Desktop could all be unstickied. I'm torn on Post Your Picture. This would leave RMRK Wiki, the IRC chatlogs thread, and RMRK Member Factfile stickied.  Post Your Picture kinda fits in with the theme I was going for here. Which is basically "Get to know RMRK and it's members"  Since all of those things showcase different facets of our personalities. And the Post Your Picture thread would give you an idea of what the person may look like.  But then I am probably just over thinking. And it isn't like every single RMRK member uses all of those things. (or any of them)

I also agree with bringing Bean Bags out because it is a more serious board. But I don't really care either way so there ya go lol

Man RMRK is looking so organized!  :ladyj:

I vote for keeping every sticky except RMRK Wiki, which could just be made into an article on the wiki, if it isn't already. There's a very prominent link in RMRK's footer now anyway.

Also maybe Post Your Desktop could be moved to Computing & Technology.
