Mod Shop split-off
We have decided to break off the Mod Shop from the main forums by removing it from the main forum display and giving it a Mods navigation tab of its own. The Mod Shop is a big part of us and we don't want this to look like we are hiding it away. That's not what this is about at all.
Splitting it off into its own area has been done to make it easier for those of our visitors who frequent that location to be able to stay within that ecosystem and have their preferred info available to them as when you visit Recent on the Mod Shop you will only see items from that area. (I am trying to get other options to do the same sort of thing but they are hardly used so it's not a main priority right now)
On the other side, those who have no real interest in it are able to check on and see items that they too are more interested in without having to filter out or skim past mod topics and postings. And of course for those visitors who enjoy both, they can switch between them to their heart's content.
There are other aspects we will get to in the coming days and weeks but for now this is the main of it and we hope you will understand why we have done this and can also see the benefits we envisioned.

Mod Shop Break Off - Why we have chosen to break it offI'm a bit mental.
Would that vision include opening mod shops for other games? (don't ask me to suggest any)
I have to say it seems you really have an ulterior motive for doing this.
For me there is always some truth in what people say, so that fact that you wrote " The Mod Shop is a big part of us and we don't want this to look like we are hiding it away." give me the imprseeion that this is what you're trying to achieve.
If your actual goal was to grow the forum and get members engaged in other sub sections of the forum that's great. It would be nice for you just to say so.
Obviously i will have a biased view though i try not to being that i'm a modder. I just get the impression you are trying to distance yourself from why i and a lot of people signed up for. Maybe this is just the time that you wish to head in a different direction which i understand.
I saw in chat that even Jorgemodek a long time member even went to chat first before seeing the Mods tab. This makes me believe that a lot of members or even non members not seeing the tab and just moving on. Yes that seems a little extreme but is possible. So in turn will get less activity and there for die out.
Christ, i hope i don't come across as angry. I'm just looking for further clarification on what's going on.
Might work in addition to what we currently have Ry, but I don't think it works as a replacement.
