As I mentioned in the "If you were a moderator" thread I've been evaluating a forum software change.

Part of those changes will include a more streamlined categorization format for the forum.

The purpose is to improve content exposure and content discovery.

The biggest problem with forums (and this place) is finding the content you are looking for. For instance, "How do I grow my Instagram?" or "How do I (blank)?"

Finding this information isn't exactly easy. And in today's day and age of short-attention spans and drive-by social media dopamine hits, difficulty in content discovery is a pretty bad disadvantage.

To be honest, I HATE the "General Entrepreneurship" forum because everyone posts there and NO ONE posts in the right category. I'd like to remove that forum entirely and reorganize them into better categories.

For example:

-- Forum Intros
-- Growing Your Business
-- Starting Your Business
-- Investing / Money-Systems
-- Progress/Execution Threads
-- Off Topic (Health/Current Events)
-- Mindset & Motivation
So with that said, what categories would work to help content discovery?

I'm not looking for a massive list but something more streamlined and simpler.


Taking ideas!

Putting some of the Gold and otherwise keystone threads into a "Required Reading" thread might be worthwhile.

It would be useful to funnel people into somewhere on the forum that gives them what goes for "common knowledge" around here.

Some of the stuff by guys like @CareCPA & @Walter Hay could go into an "Expert Advice" type forum, where people can find more technical or detailed info relating to specific problems/industries. Who can open a thread in that subforum could be limited to subject matter experts.

<reserve post>

I want to organize my post before posting but I’m away from my laptop. Anyway, I’ve been thinking about this for a LONGGG TIME. May 14, 2017 to be exact. lol


But yeah, these are some of my ideas on possible categories. I definitely have more so I’ll share later.
