    Just a little thinking going on.

    Is it possible to add further divisions to our online leagues section.

    With Crunch Them All, BBT's Aussie contingent and Panda's community league all having threads in General, it may be worth adding a section for more than just the Crunch Cup.

    Also given Crunch Cup now seems to have spawned Crunched and we have talked about others, it might be handy to have more options than just adding threads under Crunch Cup.

    But I also don't want to make it feel that Cyanide play is taking over the site. :eek:

    THN has its own forum so a recruitment thread is probably enough, and DUBBL seems to manage well with a single thread so far. Crunched Cup should be within the Crunch Cup forum, and the CTA thread could be moved there as well.

    But I would agree that there could be possibly be a third subforum beneath the "Online Blood Bow" banner. After "Crunch Cup" and "Crunch Cup Courier" there could be an "other online leagues" - only that would probably steal a lot of posts from both "League and Team Development Tactics" and "General Blood Bowl News and Discussion"

    So in the end I would probably not recommend it, and if it becomes a popular idea then naming it well would be important.

    I don't necessarily want to take away Tactics section posts and so forth, I just am not a fan of watching perpetual CTA type threads cluttering up General.

    Similarly I personally I would prefer to separate out the different activities going on in the CC forum sections.

    But them I am rather a fussy accountant who prefers neat and tidy. :)

    If there is demand for it I can add them, what do others think?

    Personally I've considered it though I'd rather not have so many different forums that they all appear to be empty and unused...

    To be honest I'm ambivalent about the idea, but from the point of view of those leagues I would say they are likely to get more people browsing the general who wouldn't check another section, and therefore drum up more interest as a result.

    Honestly don't mind though either way.

    I'm not sure it's necessary right now. There are only three such threads in the General forum right now, and I'm not sure three counts as clutter. :p Well I'm actually going to start a new one for DUBBL II, but then the first will drop down pretty quickly. It would also be rather quiet in the new forum as things stand. So I'd say not yet, but maybe in the future if a few more league threads appear - although given how many people just pile into the OCC it might take a while for that!

    Why not just have one more section for "non-Crunch" online leagues and group all of the threads there?

    If in doubt post it in the general forum.

    I'd still ask that in there even if there was a dedicated online league section.
