[SOLVED] Video Game Section

Takes Life. Seriously.
I'm just bringing this up because it has been bugging me lately. I want to discuss a game but I then have to figure out where it was posted. The PC/Mac section shouldn't have video games, as it has enough hardware and software conversation without it. Having a video game section for console and PC games makes more sense. Most games are either on all three platforms or can easy be categorized by the Topic Description saying "PC" or "Xbox One" or "PC/Xbox One/ PS4" etc... It would just save me some time when looking for a particular game. Would also volunteer to move any existing game topics from PC to the renamed Console Gaming forum.

Will fix now. Changed the title and will now move all the video game related threads in the PC section into the Video Games section.

How about a General Gaming section for discussions about multi-platform games or stuff like the "Random Gaming Thoughts Thread' and then a subsection each for Consoles and PC gaming.

And then change the PC/Mac section to Computers.

The "Visual Arts & Tech" would look like this.


  • Television
  • Movies
  • Gaming
    - Console Gaming
    - PC Gaming
  • Computers
  • Mobile Discussion
  • Art Corner
  • Videos

What things would specifically need the PC Gaming and Console Gaming section though? I mean, most video games would be posted underneath the Gaming forum and I suppose things like Gamertags for different platform could be in Console and PC, but what else?

Done. When making threads now just make sure you guys specify what platform(s) the game is for whether in the title or description.

It doesnt matter what platform the game is for, every thread to do with a game is now under Video Games. Everything related to PC/Mac hardware or software is still in PC/Mac

I don't know. It was just a suggestion. Didn't really think that far ahead tbh. But Ryan already moved everything so no need to start moving everything around again.

Its been a problem thats bugged me too a bit when it comes to multi platform games and the general video game thoughts thread. This suggestion just pushed me to actually make the switch.

So I changed the names of a couple of those sections just to see what it would look like. Keep them or change them back?
