Poll: Make ZHL and EZHL more prominent on boards

Post by TeeKay » Wed Mar 04, 2015 12:22 pm

My idea is that two-fold:

1) the 'Leagues' top board be eliminated and to move the sub boards 'ZHL' and 'EZHL' each to be a top board. so in competitive play the boards would be Tournaments, Organized Events, ZHL, EZHL.

Any other league like night league or pub league could be listed in Organized Events.

I think having the boards so far in sub board deters ppl from going to those boards and making new, relevant topics.

2) that the Competive Play section be moved to the top. Let's be honest.. Without competitive play tourneys and leagues, ZH would be dead now. Show case this aspect by making it the top thing in the board. It already is in the top bar, so why not in the board layout as well.


Vote for ZHL/EZHL prominence on the board.

Above "General," I could put a new category called "Leagues" and then put (NA) Zealot Hockey League and European Zealot Hockey League. I could change "Competitive Play" to "Alternative Competitive Play" and leave it where it is. IDK, lemme know. I agree with this in general though. Competitive Play has 4.1k+ posts and the closest is General discussion with 1.3k+ posts.

I was also considering merging "Bugs" and "Patch Notes" sections to just be "Dev Corner" and list Patch Notes, Bug Reports, Solved Bugs there.

I agree with tk's suggestions, competitive play is the the most active forum.
I also think dark's 2nd post should be fine.

Competitive Play
- Organized Events (tournaments included)
- North American Zealot Hockey League
- European Zealot Hockey League
General
- General Discussion (no general strategy)
- Player's Corner
- Teams
- Video Content (no subforums)
Dev's Workshop
- Patch Notes
- Bug Reports (include solved reports hidden subforum)

Is it also possible for the European league to merge their league stats/vids/schedule onto this site. I'd like to have European leagues/tournaments having the same access/support to the site so any viewer can have the option to view either league with ease.

I'll work on the forum format in a day or so. As for getting ezhl info on here, I'm currently speaking with a few eu players to decide this.

Great ideas - in several occasions i have done extra step going to ezhl boards.
Also leagues are the biggest events in zh - events which draws the largest crowd, sponsors and e-fame - so information about them definitely needs to be with easiest accessibility.

I would also like to promote the usage of "View active topics" - someone mentioned that way of following forums - since then thats the way I check forums. Sorry for off-topic.

Voted.

It's good for viewing topics (I actually have my bookmark to ZH as the view topics link) but you can't make topics from view topics, so having a clean board is good to promote more topic creation :P
