The Rumor Mill: Requesting community feedback

Post #1 by admin » Mon Sep 09, 2013 5:14 pm

Hey guys, we're thinking about doing some clean-up of the rumor mill sections, namely bringing some staff onboard to trim these threads to shape, etc...

One of the things that has been discussed from time to time is whether we really need to copy verbatim the structure of other sites like MTGS. Here are some opinions I've gathered here and there:
i still think we should get rid of the rumor mill and just have one general spot for new card and spoiler discussion

basically the same spot but a more anything goes approach on what threads can be there and for goodness sake change the name


So basically, any more suggestions? We are happy to change the structure and naming conventions a little bit if people put some good ideas forward.

Discuss!

I propose a name change to "News and Rumors". New members will appreciate familiarity, but we also should aim to innovate.

are we ruling out an option of a MTG-card based name for News and rumors, or do we want it to be not vague

If we do that then each Magic Fundamentals section needs a card name, and some are going to be tough

I approve...

I think there are options, like Gleemox for MTGO. The forum description should tell people what to find inside. :glee:

We can also bracket what they really are, like Island [Standard] does.

Speak Your Mind should be Thatcher Revolt.

Standard should be Mountain.

Dramatic Entrance... High Market... Training Grounds... Some of these are easy.

Brainstorm seems like the play for strategy/theory.
