News Categories

(1/2) > >>

Guest (Deleted):
What categories should the news section have?  Note there can be overlap - here's how it will work...

When the news system goes up a news article can have as many or as few categories that suit. For instance the Dungeons & Dragons movie could be filed under D&D, d20, movies, and DVD at the same time.

Users will have the ability to customize the news page by choosing what categories they want to see. By default the home page will show all categories but if we get enough news flowing I may make theme pages like "Sci-Fi news" "Fantasy News" and so on.

Knightcrawler:
Lets see.   Movies, Comics, D&D, d20, Sci-Fi, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Star Wars, Warhammer, World of Darkness, RPG's general, Books, Video Games, Stargate, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Atlantis.

Reefer Madness:
I would give the bigger games sub forums under their genre...give supers their own space, and maybe break up the tech to video games and programs sub forums....just my 2 cents...that way with more distinct forums its easier to navigate

Note the users being able to customize their news page.  Thats why I suggested so many different cats.

BillyBeanbag:
Does the programming of the categories need to be done in advance? If it was me, I'd have like main categories to start off with.

Movies
Comics
Electronic Gaming
Tabletop Gaming
Roleplaying Gaming

I don't know much about the code side at all, so I reserve the right to change my answer. :)
