Honestly, I don't like this new change. You've made the most popular section by far on OC into a subsection (Sigs).
Lets face it: OC members make sigs. The new members that come here are from Baka's channel which get tons of views off the sig videos that he produces. You don't believe me? Look at the new member intros. 8/10 of the time it's peaple who make tags and want to improve. Furthurmore, our SOTW have taken off. We've been getting 10+ entries (Or so I've heard). If we make Sig section into a subsection,a number of things are going to happen:
1) Back in the day, when a new member arrived, he would post an intro and the sig section would be conveniantly placed right under ( for if he wanted a few pointers on his sigs). This made it very easy for new members to post their sigs. It was so friggen conveniant. Now, whats going to happen is that peaple won't really know if we genuinely are a dominant sig making community. To the the least. New members will face this new ''clutter'' and try to maneuver around it.
2) Sigs topics and signatures themselves will receive less views and CnC because its much more of a hassle to see the last reply, etc.
A few statistics to back up my arguement.
I pulled out my calculator to higlight how much topics the sig subsection section has generated compared to the whole ''Artisic Design'' section. This includes photos, manipulations, and drawing.
Turns out that the Signature subsection makes up 66% of the WHOLE SECTION. That's insane. This just shows that tag making is our forte.
What we can do
We should make Signatures itself into a seperate section. We shouldn't mix our most popular section with other dry sections.
Offpost: The coding is amazing. OC is much faster to navigate with the new clean up. I don't know why but when I post it loads in less then a milisecond. Thanks MOO.
