Given the traffic of this forum, the current split seems way too extensive and spread thin an already limited traffic.

It's actually a net simplification, if you look at it. I understand your concern, but do not share it. Really, this should be more of a consolidation than anything.

By the way, welcome to the forum! What are your areas of interest (feel free to post in the introduction threads).

Notice that we have a few new features. For starters we have points instead of posts. Ability to thank posters for what that is worth and we can rate topics.

Up in the upper left where the post time is located, there is a direct link button. What is that for?

That is actually nothing new Panther.
 
We can link to a category - to a forum - or to a specific post.
The URL assigned to that button is a direct link to that specific post.
 
So if I would guide you to Ako's earlier post, I would copy thje URL from the button of his post and post it for you - like this: http://worldhistoria.com/suggestion-box_topic125313_post64113.html#64113" rel="nofollow - http://worldhistoria.com/suggestion-box_topic125313_post64113.html#64113
 
If you click that link it will take you directly to Ako's post - displaying it on top of your screen.

Can this forum be available via the Tapatalk app for IPhone? I'm sure also for other smart phones. General mobile friendly formats could help for tablets as well.

Hi Leo
 
I think it already is available and mobile friendly - read the last post (or the whole thread) from the forum designer here:

Specifically for WANA forum section:

Just a suggestion regarding the name of this forum section, WANA.

Usually this region is referred to as MENA (Middle East & North Africa). Not sure if there's a specific reason why this convention was ignored, but I thought I'd point out that when I first began posting here, I didn't immediately notice this section, because WANA just didn't click with me, and I rarely read fine print.

The designated names for the forums were established as a result of debates amongst the whole staff -  and there might be some staff-members who remember why the WANA was preferred over the more universal MENA.
 
Let us see if we get a reaction.

Middle East is confusing, largely because without something to refer to 'East' is undefined. If you live in China Palestine is west.
 
Moreover life gets confusing because the term has changed its meaning over the last half-century or so and older texts (and people) still use it in the old sense where the Middle East covered from Iraq/Jordan eastward to the border of Pakistan, Pakistan across to Burma itself being India still, and the Far East starting only with Indo/China to Japan.
 
Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Turkey were not 'Middle East' but 'Near East' which also included Greece.
 
'West Asia' and 'North Africa' evade all those traps, since each mentions the continent in question, and 'West' and 'North' are obviously relative to the relevant continent. (As of course do 'East Asia' and 'SW Asia' and 'Western Europe' and so on.
 
Moreover, using 'Middle East', 'Near East' and so on has been seen as European elitist.

Thanks for the response.

Sometimes its better to use widely known naming conventions even if they don't strictly represent what they describe.

We have North Asia, East Asia, South East Asia, South Asia, South Central Asia and Central Asia. West Asia has consequently kind of a natural ring to it.

What about adding a sub forum under special focus on linguistics since linguistics can tell a lot with history like where certain people moved from one place to another, or occupations, or close relationships which can be seen through linguistics.

I would suggest word wrap.  When cut and paste text with very long line (ie auto-wrap in wordprocessor) line is hard to read for readers.

I'm being refused access to make posts because I don't have authority to access this forum.

I had difficulty responding to Panther about the Bollywood Movie, and I've just attempted to post a new thread in General History.

Turn off your computer for three minutes - restart and make sure you are logged on to the forum.
There are no restrictions what so ever for anyone to post like you said...

Let me hear how it goes...

Es_Bih has asked for suggestions which could improve this forum, well, I don't see how the forum can be improved much at all, good Mods and Admin, interesting topics and so on.
 
The only thing of an adverse nature that I could mention, is the lack of interest by so many of the registered members.
 
Perhaps if bonus points could be awarded to well written and argued posts, it may encourage more input.
 
Would it be possible to poll existing members to find out why they have either dropped out or are currently showing very little interest?

Advertising is not usually permitted on this forum. While your post goes very close to the mark of advertising, I've decided to allow it because it offers members a resource which is applicable to this forum.

Thank you for that.
