My advice? I think we need to considerably lower the number of boards. It just seems like it would be too intimidating to new members. It also makes it hard to find old topics that could have easily been placed in multiple areas.

If I were to re-do the forum layout:
__________________________________ ______________________________
Rules + Announcments

General disscussion
Tips+Tricks (Art related discussion and help forum)

Sponsored Events
Locker room
Art battles
Sig battles

Featured Tutorials
Tutorials (possibly divided into 2D and 3D. The program should be part of the thread title)
Resources (Should be divided up into sub-forums by program)

Art Showcase (yup, just one board)
Shameless plugs (Self Advertisement)

__________________________________ __________________________________

By simplifying the amount of boards we have, the site becomes easier to navigate, and less scary. It's also easier for people to notice posts that would otherwise be placed in an obscure forum.

Also, more tutorials should be sent to P2L. Wooolooolooloo!

I understand that this might seem like a bad idea, but I've wanted to say it for a while. Simplicity important when attracting new members.

I agree...

and I think we can move ahead with this one. Problem will be moving everything to their spots.. I'll have to get the other staff in to help out.

Did you leave out the Sotw and Totw on purpose?

No, that was an error on my part. Sorry.
