    Default To Admins --> Split Forum? (FS\FT and WTB\WTTF)

    Hello Admins.

    I searched a bit but I wasn't able to find a response to this query. Any chance of splitting this forum into separate "Buying" and "Selling" forums to ease in searching through the various posts? I know this would take some work (especially moving the various threads in your DB) but I think this change would be welcomed by the DP community.

    Thanks in advance for your consideration.

    Any changes to the forum software would likely cause the C64 that DP is hosted on to spontaneously combust.

    They did this at Atari Age and I didn't notice the wanted forum for 3 years.

    Well, at Atari Age they have the WTB forum as a sub-forum of the Selling forum, rather than a whole new forum.

    I will propose this at the next Admin/Moderation summit in 2024. Until then, I wouldn't expect it to change.

    But still, even on fire that C64's going to be working and pumping out some kick ass tunes.

    This forum works well the way it is.

    Personally, I like the idea. It seems like it would make it easier to find what you're looking for.

    FWIW, it's being kicked around behind closed doors -- although, like pretty much every proposed change around here, it's pretty much a 50/50 split, just like the responses in this thread.

    If I'm not mistaken, we already have RSS feeds in place for most of the subforums, don't we? I'm not big on the whole RSS thing, but maybe someone who actively uses it can chime in.

    Which is most likely the way it would be done here.

    Really? I can't seem to find it. I know the toolbar has feeds but i thought that only supported the blogs and ALL forums and not individual forums.

    Can anyone confirm that we can do custom feeds for individual forums with our own reader? This would make my day!
