Weeellllll. I was going to say that the sub-forum would get more traffic than the forum. I like yours better. Succinct. Ya know.

I would frequent a comic forum. And I love the book forum, just. that like reading a book, it takes a little more time.

I disagree - "comic books" are a sub-genre of books - period - by definition.

Also, if comic books have more activity than books, then it is actually a sad statement of this group's feelings about books.

And this DOES come from a lifetime comic book collector.

Re: Request for a Comic Book Talk subforum

Can Comic Book Talk be moved out from under Book Talk, as Blu-ray Bargains was recently moved?

It's really more a sister than a daughter.

Re: Request for a Comic Book Talk subforum

On the possibility that it could increase traffic (since there's such an obvious stigma to being seen in a sub-forum! ), then I say we should go for it. I mean, would there be any downside, other than someone having to take a moment to recode something? It's not going change the size or spacing of the dropdown menus; merely the position (the first step in our clever scheme to take over the world). So yeah, who would be harmed by such a change?

DO IT! DO IT NOW!!

I like it, seems like it could generate a bit more traffic and gain some additional attention.

Re: Request for a Comic Book Talk subforum

Who reads books anymore? Make Books the sub-forum of Comic Books. The Comic Book forum should go next to the Anime forum in the dropdown menu, for maximum crossover appeal.

I think if we do this, then one (or preferably more) of the other forums should go. The main page is full enough.

You're suggesting the abolition of the Religion and Politics sub-forum, right?

But seriously, if a forum has to go, or be made into a sub-forum to allow another child-forum to break free, I believe that IB will have the stats available to support any (de)selection decisions.

Clearly, though, even the most cosmetic of decisions should be properly thought through. It would be unfortunate if something that seemed relatively simple to implement might have all manner of unanticipated consequences.

I support this move as I suspect it will increase viewership and participation in comic book talk.

I think Comic Books should join the Religion/Politics forum.
