    Yes, it is. I have decided that our look needs to be cleaned up and help support the launch of the Switch. By holding this open forum for suggestions, I hope we are able to redesign with the community in mind ;)

    Yes this is :p We are going to shape NintyBuzz with the community right at the front of the decisions helping make us a greater forum centred around our members :)

    Like I said, if you have any suggestions or questions, let myself or Leon know!

    It just seemed kinda odd that a member who has been here for 8 days saying that they'll start changing things. Unless you and Leon know each other irl.

    I've been searching for someone to help redo the site for a couple months now, and I found Myers around two weeks ago(?). He's seems like he is very capable and it won't be costing me another year of university haha

    Yes it has been around two weeks :p

    Me and Leon have become good friends but we don't know each other IRL :p

    I actually joined as I was going to be starting some work on the site hence me not being here for very long. I have been in the developmental area for around 2-3 years now starting with HTML & CSS and now learning more advanced languages :p If you want to ask any questions or say anything feel free :D

    Are the Wii U/Wii/DS/3DS all separate sections/subforums? I'm opposed to having too many different sections - it fractures the forum. I may have misunderstood your excellent diagram Leon, but I would go for this:

    <GAMING>
    Switch
    Other Nintendo Systems [3DS/Wii U/etc.]
    Other Platforms

    <NINTYBUZZ> and <GENERAL> - as in diagram

    Yes, that is better. I just think we need to streamline it as much as possible!

    With Nintendo delving even deeper into the mobile game market, do you think we should add a section for that onto the forum?
