    Default Consolidating the Music, Movies, News Forums

    This is an important Heads up. Over the course of the next couple of days I will be consolidating the Entertainment and News forum. Currently the Entertainment and news Forum acts as a category for 3 sub-forums which are "Music", "Movies & TV" and "News and "Other Happenings".

    We are going to merge all of these sub-forums into one big forum which will simply be called the Entertainment & News Menu. So that won't look different, except that it will cease to be a category and will function as a Forum.

    What is most important about this is fourfold.

    1. I will be disabling the mod/add-on that automatically contacts members when a post is edited, moved, deleted etc... Just temporarily because I will be editing every single thread (which will be time consuming). This way people's PM boxes don't get filled with notifications.

    2. The reason I will be editing each Thread is because I will be adding "Pre-Fixes" to this forum and will go in and "Pre-Fix" every thread. Pre-Fixes are titles before a thread that are in a bold color like "Articles" and how it shows up in red or in the The Pirates Forum, if something is Minor League related it says "Minors" in Blue. The reason for this is simply organization and easy access.

    3. The benefits to the Pre-Fix usage is if you click on a Prefix itself it will take you to a board that is nothing but those Pre-Fixes, so really it is like having a separate Forum for that specific category without physically having one.

    4. You won't be allowed to submit a thread until you choose a Pre-Fix. There will be 4 choices "Music", "News", "TV", "Movies". It might look like a goofy rainbow of colored Pre-Fixes but I believe it'll help organize things categorically but by merging these all together in 1 forum, it makes it easy for everyone especially those using Smartphones.

    So bare with me as I work on Consolidating. You may still post and read

    Finally.... DONE

    **** that took forever. One of the most boring things you could do next to watching gnats reproduce. just tedious and time consuming. I went cross-eyed a few times.

    It's very similar. You just sit there and click. You get to click and drag doing hard drives. Here I was doing nothing but clicking very specific spots.

    Good Time
