- Create a new board
YaBB is a community. And, as a community, we wish
and expect it to grow. We encourage you to create
new boards for discussions that don't quite fit
into the theme or subject of existing boards. Of
course any new boards must have two things:
First and most important is appeal to other members.
If a proposed board is very specialized and of interest
to only a few members, it would probably be a better
choice simply to create a topic within the closest
related board. Then, if the topic grows to sufficient
popularity, create a new board specifically for
The second thing any new board needs is a Board
Moderator. The Moderator of a board assists
the Forum Staff in routine maintenance of the board
(deleting or archiving old posts, for example),
keeping the board on topic, removing offensive posts,
and other such tasks. Most importantly, a Moderator
must keep the board alive and active.
If you have an idea for a new board that you feel
is of interest to other members, and you are willing
to become the Moderator for the board, then tell
us. New boards may only be created by the Administrator
of YaBB. So please send a Private Message with the
subject "New Board Creation Request" to username
"admin" or other Forum Staffers. Please include
in the request the following information:
The Forum Staff will review your request and respond
as quickly as possible. Please allow a couple of
days for a response as the Forum Staff have lives
and jobs to take care of too.
- Your real name.
- Your YaBB handle.
- A brief description of the board you'd like
to create and why you think the board will appeal
to other members.
- The title you'd like to give your new board.
