New Category Suggestions


I have been searching for reviews of boards and buggies under Kite buggying and ATB kite landboarding and I think It is quite difficult to find reviews with all of the different topics posted under the categories. Every time I want to find a review I have to scan through hundreds of topics to find it, if it even exists in the first place. Now I know that there is a search engine built into the forum, but I think it would just be easier to have separate topics. There are kite review and surf kite riew categories so its only fair :yes:

The other option I was thinking was just have a reviews parent category with the different review categories being sub categories.

This is just a request/suggestion so in the end it is completely up to you guys, but I do think it would be easier to find things that way.

Thank you for reading,
Shortlineflyer

Separate topics are good, but can get very detailed and makes drilling down deep manual searching all sub categories harder perhaps?

I think a single "Reviews" category is a good idea.

If you look at the surf kite reviews for example - it goes back to posts from 2007 just on the first page and a lot of the posts are not reviews.

You need to be quite experienced to review kites and since the differences between boards and buggys of similar types are even more subtle a specific forum would not get used much I imagine.

You are best off turning to the internet in general for reviews. Google will often find forum posts with less fuss than internal search engines anyway.

B-Roc, your comment is correct. but the issue at hand here is that at the top of the category it says this thread is for kite reviews only. No accessories. Or something to that way. So maybe we could have a top thread on the buggying section for buggy and board reviews such as we have a good sellers list on the top of the for sale group? Just a quick thought.
