Most fantasy writers like to read fantasy.
Part of the appeal of a fantasy forum (for me) is a community with similar reading tastes that I can swap recommendations with.
As such, the "Novels & Stories" board was one of my first stops... and if I'm honest with you, I'm disappointed with it.
I think the board needs subdividing into general book chat and specific book/series reviews/discussions.
Good Fantasy Books for Children?
Do you have a re-read shelf?
Favourite -type- of character?
These are interesting threads to skim and chat in, but I feel they detract from a more serious/considered look at the field we're all passionate about.
Ideally, I'd like to see a sub-board with threads focused on specifics works, possibly with a more structured template (standard required links to wiki/amazon pages, etc - or standard, if you like this I think you'll like...).
Anything not fitting the profile could be nudged back into the general book chat main board.
I know it's easier to suggest things than to implement and maintain them - but I thought it was worth at least flagging it for discussion.
