can I have a sub board for the Magipunk Campaign Setting?
Sure, what do you want to call it?

Umm... Magipunk Campaign Setting?

Hrm.  Feel free to toss this one out, but I'm an organization freak.  Might it make more sense, rather than simply lumping all of the "Big Projects" together, to have multiple subforums?  Not one for each project, of course, that would bloat too quickly.  Basically something like:

Big Projects
  • Oslecamo's Improved Monster Classes
Campaign Settings and World-Building
  • Eberron in Pathfinder
  • Verold
Magic, Mysticism, and Miscellanea
  • Rituals 'R' Us
  • The Spellshaping Codices
  • Sufficiently Advanced Technology is Compatible With Magic
System Revamps and Variants
  • Realmz Project
  • T5: After All, Gandalf Did It
Uncle Kittie's Catastrophically Capacious Cache of Carefully Crafted and Calculatedly Comical Concoctions
  • Uncle Kittie's Cat Burglar
  • Uncle Kittie's Guide to the Orient
  • Uncle Kitties Hopefully Humorous Guide to Abominations
  • Uncle Kittie's Unnecessary Revisions
  • Uncle Kittie's Spuriously Designed Prestige Classes

That would put us at six subforums, including the Homebrew Optimization Contests.  They'd be a lot more intuitive to navigate, and they won't get clogged as quickly if people start putting out large products.

(Oslecamo's monster classes were left in a "Big Project" board because...honestly...it's a big project.  Not sure how else to categorize it.)
Anyone else have any thoughts on this?

Sounds good to me. Maybe it will help focus attention a little.

System Revamps and Variants
Uncle Kittie's Catastrophically Capacious Cache of Carefully Crafted and Calculatedly Comical Concoctions
Maybe make #2-3 "New Mechanics and Subsystems" and "Reworks, Fixes and Variant Rules"

Bhu, do you have an opinion on the last one? :tongue

Prime, can you move Lifetorn into the Magipunk forum?  I forgot to label it.

He might not be checking the thread.  Maybe PM him?

[Apologetic Double-Post] Any word on bhu's stuff being moved to his own subforum?  Sorry to be a bother, I'm just a tad bit fussy about organization projects. [/Apologetic Double-Post]

I need a subforum in the Campaign Settings part of Homebrew & House Rules, named Ravnica: City of Guilds, please? And mod-powers to go with it?

Might as well give me a new subforum in Campaign Settings named Nintendo Power. :plotting

Prime, can you modify your link to my guide to include the statement that it has the Guide to Homebrewing now?  It's no longer just templates!  Hopefully that guide will help people make better quality first attempts.

Requesting an homebrew subforum to organize all my ToBhou stuff, past, present and future. Name: Touhou Battle Grimoire.

EDIT: And if possible, transfer my threads on the subject to there. They can all be found on my sig.

Methinks you have the wrong thread, Oslecamo. This is the one for PbP board requests. Homebrew Board requests are here. Of course, Prime, being a prime moderator can probably sort things out, I would expect.

Transferred the posts to the right place. Will have that board up in a sec.

EDIT: http://www.minmaxboards.com/index.php?board=101
Not "東方戦魔道書 ~ The Book of ⑨ Swords"? :(

Ah, I felt like I was missing something! If you can change it: "Touhou Grimoire-The Book of ⑨ Swords"

Right now finishing up cleaning my latest work for that.
