Change up the new posts sidebar a little

    As it is right now, every single subforum goes together into creating a new posts list, and its often that its the same subforum that takes it over.

    Which kinda makes smaller subforums dissapear in the crowd of new posts in larger subforums.

    So I just suggest that you devide it up a little so lets say as an example,

    New posts in Reports takes up 2 spaces, TTT discussions and suggestions take up 3, Entertainment, Hobbies etc takes up another 3 and so on.

    Cause I feel like a lot of posts in some of the smaller subforums might not even get noticed, some which can be good or fun for the community to know about.

    Personally I never check some of the smaller subforums myself unless I see a post appearing in the new posts section.

  2. +1 to this.

    I often just see in the sidebar one section, mainly either reports or Q&A. Having it divided up a bit like this would really add to the mix of flavors that the forum has.
     
  3. maybe
    two sections for new posts

    one for "administrative" (reports, etc)
    and one for "Miscellaneous"

    I'm not really sure this is needed. I'm confident that this wouldn't provide much benefit to me. Personally I always Just click the "New posts" button to see the full list of what I have missed.

    unfortunately I don't think this would happen anyway simply because it cant, xenforo is rather limited when it comes to things like that

    Not true, you can do a lot by making a custom plug-in.
    Even so, that means someone would have to make it, and we don't exactly have a developer anymore....
    Still, I think this is an interesting idea that should be explored more.

    Never understood why we need to see new posts on ban appeals or reports.
