MMO section? Really?

Why?

That's all that needs to be said.

Ok, to be more clear, I would say that I don't mind it being there, but why not utilize a sub-forums structure? Put Most of them under Games, then make a developer section with the appropriate sub forums? It would look much cleaner and be more appropriate for this. We have 10 different forums out there. Getting too big, IMO.

So that we don't get spammed in the Game discussion forum area.

It was becoming increasingly difficult to find games in the games forum for all the "add me, add me, add me" threads.

I think the MMO/Code spam forum should be the first forum maybe with the name surrounded by some

That would effectively drive all idiot code spammer traffic to the right place... MAYBE!

There was a public outcry for this.

Hate to say it but I think you're in the minority on this brewster.

Arn was only doing what a good administrator does: pleasing the members in a logical way.

Not saying dispose of it. I'm saying that it just adds more clutter, and that it needs logical organization. MacRumors has it. I mean, it has great organization. I think that iPodTouchFans has better logical organization, but they are branched too much. If we had a large, dedicated jailbreak community, it would be better. :s. But, we need to condense, move, and subforum.

Do you really think that the people who come to TA for no reason other than to post their code and never come back are seriously going to browse around for an appropriate subforum?

It would make them less likely to post.

No, they'd just post it in the first forum they find then a dozen people would come flame then and report the thread.
