Seeing a nice uptick in "Users online" and "registered users online". Very nice!

With the new design i think it’s better having the recent topics list rather than just exploring. We usually use almost the same topics most of the time. This way to keep track of all new posts wherever the section they might be posted to.

Simboli, I think we might have been a little too ambitious when you started the forum. I think it may be best to consolidate some of the sections. It will reduce the amount of clicks and might increase discussion.

This is just my opinion. So anybody is free to weigh in obviously.

I think the forum structure should just be like this:

Home = Main Forum/Albania NT (kinda like XT style)
- Threads
- e.g. "Albanians abroad"
- "Albania NT"
- Kosova NT
- Albanian Youth
- Free Your mind
- Albania V. Iceland
- Albanians in other sports
- Football Around the World
- Other Sports

Link to "Albanian Superliga + Kosova and Ilirida" section
Link to "Forum Rules & Announcements" section

** These two could go on the top or bottom. I am undecided.

I would like to keep the Albanian Superliga + Kosova & Illirida forum as I think it promotes domestic league and club ball. I think it's not only important for us to follow the league but also the teams in detail. If it's a lost cause, we can close it and open a thread in the main section.


Sections I think should be removed
- "Other Sports" section should be removed/archived or whatever. We can have an "Albanians in Other Sports" & "Other Sports"thread in our main section.
- Let the good times roll should be removed. We can just use a "Free Your Mind" thread in the main section.
- "Kafja e Madhe". Nobody has posted in for years. People can still speak Albanian anywhere else they want obviously.
- General Football could be closed as well. We can just have a "Football Around the World" thread in our main section. We usually follow the big tournaments (CL, WC, Euros, etc.) there anyways.

Also, I'm not a fan of the "Recent Topics". It takes a big chunk of space and users logging in might just focus on those 5 threads.

Good suggestions , was thinking aswell to change something . The recent topics i think can be extended to 10 topics aswell and reorder sections.

We should consider opening up and not requiring registration to read the forum. I think it might expand the footprint.
