    Which area of the server is your suggestion for?
    Website

    What's your suggestion?
    Change The Forums Layout

    How can this improve PrimeMC in general?
    This may just be a personal preference, but I think the forums here are cluttered and there is space taken up that could be compacted and better for viewing and finding experiences.

    - I think that the category boxes (Off-Topic, Tutorials, Reports, and etc.) are too big and they could be compacted down so they just say what is in them. I believe that it would look better without the "latest" comment under it with the latest commenter. I think the same way about the "Accepted and Denied" comments under the categories. -- To add to this I think it would look best if it looked like this -> " [​IMG]
    https://gyazo.com/bd0755b6480b31bceb9bbb47d2605041 "

    - Change the "Recent Threads" box so it only displays new/recent threads. Not the replies to said threads. This would make it easier for people to engage and interact without other's threads.

    - "New Profile Posts" box isn't really needed. It clutters up the screen and could be removed or put in a separate tab up near "STATS". Maybe the same thing could happen with the Forum Statistics? Put it under that tab as well. Maybe keep it in the "MEMBERS" tab and not on the side.

    - Last thing. If you keep some of the categories and threads locked and privated so the public can't see them then why have them? Just more space used that could go to something else.

    If you have any more suggestions I'd love to hear! I'd love to hear your feedback as well c: Have a great day :):p

    Anything else to add?
    These are suggestions that I think will help players navigate through the site and things related.

    Adding onto this, compact the widget spacing to a smaller PT, and implement a bigger padding to things to make specifics stand out.

    Make the width of the forum a bit bigger so things aren't too squashed together.

    Agree with all your points too.

    it would seem as a good idea for it to be update with the server wide revamp i personally like it and i believe it should be implemented

    Could’ve have just disagreed on the poll

    but In my opinion atm the server is more important than the forums . they need to get their crap together

    Yes, the server is more important. They should focus on the server first. Then if they have time come here.

    From a coming here and being a newbie I just think a revamp of the forums would make it easier to find certain things.

    That is way too small for me. Also, there are ways to make it better. There are ways to improve. Sure they may seem fine to you, but they could always be improved.

    Yeah I don't understand why the actual forums are so small and the border/background is so big

    Okay, what is easy for you to read and navigate through may not be easy for others. That's all I'm saying.
