    I know I sound bitter (I prefer to call it realist) but I just don't think we can get back to the time when we had so many people.

    Yes, people do leave after the generation goes old but we had way more people before E3 last time around.

    I think a big reason is that these consoles are not about the mainstream people anymore...I doubt anyone would even care when the next-gen starts or as much as people used to...or at least know that it's happening.

    I haven't heard anything about the Wii-U from anyone I know.

    I think the big reason is certain over zealous PS3 (and Xbox to a lesser extent) members found a place called N4G to hang out, and will never be back.
    I'm not sure you wont those type of member back anyway.
    I am no longer participating in these forums, I wish all of you on the PSU Forums the best for the future.

    That's true, if you want a specific kind of forum, you're not going to be mainstream, you're going to be more like a cult.

    IMO of course we also kill ourselves by the way the forum is designed, too many sections...that would work if we had a lot of posters here...but this just stops growth.

    I definitely agree that we should have a more consolidated layout, and I tried spearheading that a couple years ago, but a lot of the members didn't want their favorite sections to go.

    Besides, there are popular forums with very little sections (NeoGAF) and popular forums with many sections (MacRumors). So it's not like one type of layout always leads to success.

    I feel like a lot of people uses the New Post function... I know I do. I don't even know what threads are in what sections anymore, as I don't really pay attention to them. But that's just me.

    That's true and I wouldn't want it to be completely consolidated either but I feel like what people want isn't always what's best for the forum (or any product for that matter), sometimes you have to do something if you do have a good calculation that it should work.

    To me, the way it is right now, doesn't work. Do I care if there's a PS3 discussion or PS3 games? Nope, I get the difference but it's a little redundant...I mean, we're discussing both things, I don't get why there's a separate discussion section. Ok, if the PS3 games section only had reviews or whatever, that makes sense. Or if the PS3 discussion was just about rumors or I donno, something else, it would make sense but the way it is right now is overkill. It doesn't really help me at all. I click on articles that take my interest.

    I think we should have sections but really it's getting a little ridiculous lol. I don't think the sections specific to certain games are bad but really why should I get to the top of the forum just to click on the different section so I can see what else is going on with the PS3.

    I would not mind one bit if we have PS3/360/Wii-U section combined...imo that would grow well. I'm definitely interested in news from other sections but I don't care to go there specifically to see if anything happened.

    We have to remember most people are lazy like myself.

    It's too random and yea it doesn't really tell you much. Now if they had a system where it showed that there are new posts in a certain area a la facebook notifications then I wouldn't care so much.

    There's just so much we miss.

    I agree with everything you've said here. Splitting the forums up too much only hinders discussion and growth, and oftentimes certain members become estranged from the rest of the forum and attached to one specific section. If we were to starting merging sections, you're absolutely right that people would begin complaining. Some people might even leave. But the larger picture is that more people would be looking in the same places for discussion, more threads would get more views, etc, etc.

    I'm not sure that the effects would be huge, at least not at first, but this is something I think we should consider as a community and that the staff should also take into consideration. There really is no better time to be discussing these sorts of things than right before we can expect a great deal of traffic.
    Read my work on Medium, my blog, and connect with me on Twitter.

    If someone is going to quit the forums due to that reason then I mean, they're here for the wrong reasons.

    The point of these forums is to have all good info in one spot...otherwise I could just go back to being on IGN reading news articles like I used to during the PS2 years.

    With E3, we do get a temporary section so that shouldn't be an issue. I believe it's better to keep it more streamlined if there's not enough activity.

    Wow...that right there is the point in case lol.

    I will at least suggest for the combination of all platforms on one page and I really wish we could get rid of a games and a discussion section...just one section for all gaming discussion. That's all I'd suggest, rest I don't care lol.

    I agree with your layout, Ix. Personally, I think less is better. I think I'd do a slight alteration:

    [Other Gaming]
    -PlayStation vs Xbox

    If you notice, many sections have really old threads on the first page that are just old news. Oh and merging the community section was something I was thinking about a few days ago. We get about 3-4 reviews a month, with about 1 opinion a month. I use the same system for both sections, could easily just combine 'em. Less clutter.

    I like this. You guys (mods and stuff) should talk about it for real and send out a survey maybe?
