At the moment the forums work like this:

Emulation
-> Rom Hacking -> Tutorials + Research/Development +Toolbox
-> Hacks Showcase -> Progressing Hacks + Sideshow Hacks
-> Team Discussions
  1. I don't understand why 'Team Discussions' is a subforum of emultation instead of Rom Hacking.
  2. The Emulation section itself is rather void, and could be better off as a Video Games subforum. If not then...
  3. All the branches off Emulation are directly off Rom Hacking - so that should probably be the main forum instead. Rom Hacking -> Emulation etc.

So basically what I'm proposing is:

Rom Hacking
-> Hacks Showcase -> Progressing Hacks + Sideshow Hacks
-> Tutorials
-> Toolbox
-> Research/Development
-> Team Discussions
(-> Emulation)* Here, or in another section.

This would also stop new users getting confused about where the Rom Hacking section is, as it makes it a bigger section ^-^.

I think Emulation should be a sub-forum of Rom Hacking, because Emulation is what you need to play a ROM hack.

I personally think the sections should be arranged as so:

ROM Hacking & Emulation*
- Hacks Showcase
-- Progressing Hacks
-- Sideshow Showcase
- Toolbox
- Tutorials
- Research & Development
- Team Discussions

* I also suggest we merge the Emulation and ROM Hacking forums as both are quite inactive by themselves. You could then just introduce [ROM Hack] and [Emulation] tags to seperate threads I guess. Though tbh I don't really see the point in Emulation at all so I wouldn't mind that part of the section just being flat-out removed :/

Yes I like this suggestion as well, generally 'Rom Hacking' being in the title of the section would be great.

As a ROM hacker and Fuhrer of PC I really like this idea, since there isn't really a point to Emulation anyway.

I really agree on this too. I think it'd cut down on the Rom Hacking question threads we get here. Kinda like how I suggested way back when about adding to the user registration page about not being able to change usernames. That worked too. I haven't seen a thread here about asking for a name change since I suggested it.

DrFuji and I are discussing what you guys have brought up (next time tell us about threads like these so we can get back to you sooner, hahaha :P). Although to be honest we're not decided on anything yet seeing as moving things around can be a bit tricky/awkward, and requires a fair bit of contemplation. So we are discussing it, but nothing has been decided. :)

Yes! This would be amazing. Honestly the current layout really set me off haha. but there is still a point to Emulation like just discussing it in general but we could use [Emulation] tags like this.
[Emulation] How do I play PS1 games on my computer?

It'll be cool.

I like the fact that we're suggesting to bring all sub-subforums of the ROM Hack section to one main-subforum, like it used to be back when I first joined.

I hate it now, like, when I'm wandering in the Hack Showcase, and then I feel like visiting the ROM Hacking to look at the Simple Questions / Script Helps, I NEED to click Emulation, and then ROM Hacking... -___-
Before, it was a one-click-go.

I also like the idea of merging Emulation and ROM Hacking, and making the unison as the main section.

Merging Rom Hacking and Emulation is a good idea to make it more active :D

It's not that it will make it more active (As if it isn't already) but it will make it easier to find. Most new people come here and try to find it, but since it's a subforum, it can be easily missed, and they come here to try finding a solution to the problem.
