Wanted to alert our regular members and full-time lurkers that we have reorganized the forums on Toyark.com a bit to further streamline your time-wasting, I mean hobby enjoyment, here.
First off, the following forums have been removed (though all threads still exist):
- DC – Toys, Comics, Movies/TV, General
- MOTU – Toys, Cartoon, General
- Star Wars – Toys, Movies/TV, Comics, General
- Video Games and Movies – Toys
- One Line Per Thread
- Welcome to the Toyark
All the off topic discussion for Movies, TV and Video Games from all over the site have been moved into our new “Fandom Related” forums. Since we all collect toys here, and most of the toys come from some form of media – we figured having dedicated areas for that might be worth a shot. You can check those out here – Movies TV and Cartoon Discussion, Comic Books and Graphic Novels Discussion, Video Game Discussion.
We have kept the Marvel Toys forum intact. There is a strong Marvel fan base here and we wanted to continue to nurture that. It now resides in Tier 1 of the forum structure along with AFGD and News & Rumors.
We have also moved the Reviews and Feedback forum up top, as we’d like to see more of your reviews – text, pictorial and video. We will feature some of the best ones on the front page from time to time.
The Creative area has also been moved higher in the forum structure. Keep showing off those kick ass customs!
In summary, we have condensed the forum structure. Marvel keeps it’s own sub-forum for now, because the traffic demands it. All the other forums listed above that have been cut were very slow in forum activity terms, so we moved the threads into our Action Figure General Discussion. If any particular line (DC, MOTU, Star Wars, etc) overpowers the flow of the AFGD in the future, where discussion of those topics push other discussion down the page regularly, we will split the threads back out into it’s own sub forum.
The Toyark is a place for those that collect multiple lines, from multiple companies. There are other great sites that are specific to particular lines, and we understand that. So instead of sectioning everyone off in their discussion, we are going to embrace our “everything-ness”, and let the discussion of all things toys take place in basically one spot – Action Figure General Discussion. That’s the logic behind all this. We hope you like it, or can accept it, and don’t start a digital riot. :)
