[OT] Too many boards?

I think that there may be a few too many message boards at the moment. It may be easier and more intuiive for new users if there were fewer (message boards that is, not new users).

Well done though all the same.


Well unfortunately unless you are in the Army we aren't interested in your opinion!

Only joking coz we love you really...
Thought I'd best pop in and lend a hand, You're gonna need a Sapper, everyone always does   :p

Agreed with the number of forums possibly needing cut but why not give it a couple of weeks and see which ones are active before you start chopping, there are only 11 members at the minute after all!!

Bit early for our first SDR (that's "Strategic Discussion Review"  ;D )
Yeah...leave it as it is...I'm sure they'll fill up.  I've followed PPRUNE for ages and that fills quickly...what's being done to publicise ARRSE ? (I think it is a Good Thing, and the more the merrier...)


No publicity really, a few posts on other 'military' boards but mainly relying on word of mouth. If we're good enough hopefully word will spread.
I heard about it today (possible from a Sumo,who knows?)

damn fine bit of work chaps, but I dont think there are too many boards,you dont have to read them all,its not reggie orders after all (although might be a bit more reliable)

If the board thinks there are too many boards then you could always add another board and call it the boards location board! Thats it, Im bored now.
You're Good enough...
You're smart enough...
and dammit people like you!

Everything on the web site is just fine.  Don't change a thing and let it ride for a while.  Word will spread quickly.  Hopefully we can keep the 1/2 breeds from spreading their silly drivel on this site and keep it real.  I apologize for the 'half breed' comment.  If you think I was referring to you, then yes, you probably ARE a half-breed.
I was 1/2 bred twice Don, does that count?  :D

No of forums (forii?) is fine. Was wondering about a static board like Pt 1s that has info like CILOR/DMR rates, uniform allowance rates, TA pay and bounties etc. Just no reporting on the last item eh boss man?  ;D
to pick up on a bit of wooperts post...

How about a TA specific board just so we can keep our insane mumblings away from you steely eyed full timers, and for general TA topics which aren't restricted to a particularm arm?


Not a bad idea we'll have to look into that one... in the meantime you might like to check out the latest item on the downloads page - just remember its only a bit of fun!
very good but I wont be needing to do that exam for a couple of years.

Any similar heads up available for TACC...

p.s. I think it's shocking that we have to do a whole three weeks, I'm not going to get any holiday this year now :D
Perhaps there are a few too many boards at the moment but it will take a while for the news to get around. I wouldn't like to be the person who has to decide which boards to chop though!!

;D ;D ;D Keep up the good work

I agree with an earlier post that its early days yet. Lets wait till reinforcements arrive and then if a particular board is not used it can be wiped. Great site though. Seen a few refs to PPRUNE any details on the address or is it in one of the many other, but not too many, boards!!
Tara..PPRuNe is the Professional Pilots Rumour Network, where many of us defected from. It has a Mil Pilots forum which has become overrun with whinging RAF types and wind-up merchants.

Tqn..better not let NGen you are here, the crusade against floppyjocks has begun


Great Site ;D ;D, Stick with the way it is just now, as someone else said " you don't have to visit them all!!" Keep up the good work.
Colonel, you may wish to look at the time each page downloads, poss suggestion is to remove the smileys or the amount of them...?

The animations may be adding seconds to those (like me) also on a BT connect and disconnect at random and at a variety of speeds to really annoy you dial up connection... sorry for being cynical!

How about embedding you links page down the left or right side to create space you may need in the future?
I can forsee 'Downloads' or 'Email Atts' growing exponetially with membership.
