This stuff gets buried and fewer people see it. This is the first time in months I've been in this area. Should we move it back?

No need to move it back completely under the regular forums.

1. If you click on the regular MBB Forum... a link to this forum area is pinned at the top with the Insiders Only Forum.

2. If you click on the regular forums button at the top where it takes you to a page showing all the forums....
A. the Recruiting Forum is right under the MBB Forum
B. If someone on the Recruiting forum made the most recent post.... it'll show up as the most recent post under both MBB & the Recruiting Forums on the Main Forums page.

Moving all the Recruiting Threads/Forum back fully under the MBB forum will only make the recruiting threads get buried even more than you claim they are now.... because you have the Opponent Tracking Thread, Every game thread, Media Mentions Thread, Different Player threads, Rams In the Pros thread,.... etc. that all get used fairly regularly.

I think it's better like this, and people who like to talk recruiting a lot can still have easy access to it.

If you go to the standard men's bball forum, a link for the recruiting forum is the very first thing you see. How can you miss it. If you are logged in, it even shows you if there are new messages in the recruiting forum

For me, it is actually always bolded on the MBB forum and I cannot tell whether I’ve seen the comments or not until I enter the recruiting subforum.

I see bold but no New.
Edit: until something new shows up in one of the folders, then I get the new icon.

(Sorry, I put the ad block on for a minute so the screenshot would fit) ;)

It's just an additional and unnecessary step. Like we have to segregate recruiting news from scheduling or conference happenings or analytics or any other VCU basketball topic we discuss, like recruiting is pornography we need to hide from the kiddies. Like, why? Seriously, there is no good reason for it. I've always been against segregation.

You probably like the truck stops that have a KFC, McDonald's and Taco Bell in the same location.

For the same reason ANY recruiting HAD to be in the recruiting thread.
Whats with all the rules around here ?
