    Default Feedback wanted: re-organising gaming platform sub-forums

    The world has changed since MyGaming first launched.

    The clear divisions that existed between PC and console gaming have become increasingly blurred. I haven't run the numbers, but it also seems as though major console exclusives are fewer than the previous generation.

    This has caused much of the discussion that was happening in the consoles sub-forum (currently called "PS4, Xbox One, other consoles, and mobile gaming") to migrate to the General / cross-platform sub-forum.

    Now that "exclusives" has morphed into "console exclusives" (i.e. available on PC too) and "timed exclusives" (i.e. Rise of the Tomb Raider), keeping the current sub-forum configuration is making less and less sense.

    So here's what I want to do: mass consolidation of the PC, cross-platform, and console sub-forums.

    There are a lot of stickies that will need sorting out, but it shouldn't be a big issue. I'll unsticky some old stuff, and create "merging stickies" (like the community-hosted servers thread).

    This is one of those situations were maintaining the status quo isn't really an option, so I'm open to alternative suggestions if you don't think this is a good move.

    What say you?

    May I suggest merging the "Announcements and Giveaways", "Hardware" and "PC Gaming" sub forums? Then we can have only two sub-forums, named "Dirty Console Peasants" and "Glorious PC Gaming Master Race". The one can run in HD and @ 60+ fps, the other in SD @ 25-30fps.

    Just kidding (kinda). Your way is fine by me, Jan.
    One day, I'll grow up and become responsible.
    Probably not today.

    Ja, I can't see any compelling reason not to.

    So many stickies :O

    Is there a way of combining all the online platforms Communities into one thread?

    Good idea. I can create a "merging sticky" for them.
