As you would have noticed there have only been 3 changes so far. Gaming merged into one section and Devices and Software being added as well as Food & Drink was added before.

Here is the run down of the current changes that have happened recently as of 7-20-2021.

Two sections have been renamed, one has been completely removed, and another has been placed under Paranormal. The Rant was renamed to "General Discussion", Food & Drink was dropped and removed and threads were moved back to General Discussion where they originated before the section was made (in all honesty was to avoid spam as food & drink has very thin discussion and any topics about it can be posting in the general area which suits just fine). And YouTube and Multimedia was renamed to "Multimedia, Streaming & Animation". And lastly the section that was placed under Paranormal is Doomsday & Conspiracy.

All sub-forums were given a font awesome icon. This took the most work. Even the sub-forums on the main homepage received an icon update where they are clickable. Be noted all sub-forum post counts are combined into the main forum post count. All sub-forums are accessible on the homepage. There will be prefixes for tutorials in specific sections with awards/medals added at a later date for posting tutorials as well as specific awards for postings in specific sections. I have an add-on I have not yet installed that records counts per section on the profile (this add-on is called post-areas and will be added at a later date).

I have added the following sub-forums to "Gaming".

- xbox
- playstation
- nintendo
- mobile gaming
- pc gaming
- modding


I have added the following Sub-Forums to "Web Technology".

- Webmaster Lounge
- SEO Optimization
- CMS & Forums
- Web Development


I have added also the following to "Devices & Software".

- Smartphones & Mobile
- Control Panels
- Operating Systems

The rest is only a short handful that will be revealed below.

Added to "Multimedia, Streaming & Animation".
- YouTube & Twitch

Added to "Graphics".
- Graphics Request

Added to "Programming & Scripting".
- Game Development

Added to "Paranormal".

- Paranormal Evidence
- Doomsday & Conspiracy (section moved to Paranormal)

Added to "Aliens & Outer Space".

- Alien Evidence


Generally speaking, any thread that didn't belong to the sections provided would go into the main forum. Threads are still being moved to desired sections that are appropriate but have been 3/4ths completed. There's just a handful I will get to shortly after I put the site back online. There won't be much time elapses when the site resumes before each thread is in the proper section, so no worries there.

If you would like to give an idea for a section feel free to drop your idea in this thread or if you feel like it's good enough for a feedback thread you can add that.

Other changes:

Other changes I will address are Question Type threads have been added to the majority of all sections. To make a question thread (if you need help with a specific topic), simply chose it after clicking post thread and then users, including yourself will have the option to upvote different answers as the highest votes will be the official answer. Upvoting by points will be on the right hand site of each post.

Prefixes are coming. For almost every forum available. Will be adding it while the sites online and shouldn't take more then 2 days but probably a lot less.

Yes I intend to add Prefixes for every forum almost. Prefixes are little colored boxes that appear next to a thread you can select from a very simplistic drop-down to the left of the thread title when creating it. They appear as small boxes with the word inside it from a handful of pre-selectable choices. But as they won't be made required to use either. It helps organize content and so forth.

I will make a new quick announcement when the prefixes are added. Thank you for your support and glad to have you in the Cafe!

Thread will be updated once the Prefixes have been added and all threads have been moved to their proper forums. There's only a handful that haven't been moved so bare with me. The rest of the work will be done while the sites online and will be barely noticeable. Some new sections may be added to Web Technology possibly later on but not many. If there's an update on that I will update the sticky thread dedicated to site updates.
