Hey everyone!

Hope everyone is enjoying the board! However, I decided it would be a good time to take some suggestions! As a growing board and one I hope will be around for a good long time, I think it's important we listen to what others have to suggest or come up with in terms of improving the forum and making it a more engaging place!

Anyways! If you have any thoughts, suggestions or ideas on what myself and the mods can do to make the board a better place or just more fun or educational, let us know! Drop us a comment here, or if you don't want to post it, feel free to send out a private message to us!

Thanks!

We really could use a generic "events" board. Ive had many little events to announce such as gallery and art exhibits that are going on but no where to officially post such.

Yes, I can - and have in the past. All the same it seems cluttered and easily swept aside in such a forum area.

it's kimono related, right?

so if you want, i can create a top "upcoming events" in the kimono section of the forum and make it "sticky".

can also do it in the general japan section.

would this help you out? :)

Events will be broad - from netsuke, to block print, to kimono, and last but not least anime cons. Given the broad nature of events, perhaps a top level catagory is best as the events wont fall into any particular pattern. Bury the events forum too deep, and no one will care to look.

i don't have the "power" to create a new sub-forum under Ochaya so i will ask Tsuruko what she thinks about it.

we will keep you updated ;)

A suggestion for the Admin [I assumed we use the same administration panel platform,btw,so the options should be the same] - you can use the ''calendar'' option to enter dates of misedashi,erikae and other important dates and all members will be able to see it :) It's easier than constantly looking and searching threads. It's very neat.

Ummm, I was wondering if on the Index Page you could have links to the sub-forums?
E.G If I want to look at the Gallery sub-forum in the Kimono forum I have to click onto Kimono first then onto Gallery.
If on the index page you had the sub-forums under the main forum it would be quicker.
I don't know if that's feasible though...

I've been looking around, and I can't seem to find anything that would allow me to do that. On some PHP boards, the option is most likely doable, but since our board is very limited in what we can and can't customize, I don't know exactly what all I can do, until I start ripping and tearing. I understand; what with ads and limited bandwidth, but there's a concern towards clutter too. I'll keep poking around though.
