I know there's a sticky in the main forum but since so many ppl are making threads on it why don't you make a subforum?



How many ppl are with me on this idea? Coz I'm a bit tired of scrolling through the forums and predominately seeing Oxbridge threads....

May people on the forum have been dead against sub-forums - me included for the most part. There do seem to be a few Oxbridge threads on today, but there is a University subforum where they could go.

Anyway probably in a few weeks the threads about Oxbridge will die down and wont revive until the a-level results come out, once people get their offers.

d is the forum administrator - the only one who can make any real changes to the board.

I am no longer against sub-forums any more. I used to be becuase all the discussion was interesting and relevent, and subforums would just mean more pages to trawl through.

Now the forums userbase has expanded, I find a lot of the content is irrelevent to me and think subforums would be a good idea.

subforums lead to tiers. IT also means that someone can ask a question in one, and as people will tend to stick to one sub forum, they'll miss it.
That, and youll still get people posing oxbridge stuff in the normal forum, and more importantly, oxbridge are universities too!

This forum is too Oxbridge obssessed.

I agree with loftx: Oxbridge threads can go in the University section.
