Default Expanding into Fantasy [Forum Related]

Seems we got a fair number of TOers who are playing Fantasy so I was wondering; despite the Forum being called Tau Online and it being 40K, anyone think we can get a fully-fledged Fantasy Board with Boards for each Fantasy Army.

Do we really get enough traffic in the WFB section to justify separate boards? I'm not so certain myself. I get the feeling that if we did this then some of the boards would lie empty, unloved and unused.

I agree, from what I've seen, the fantasy board seems adequate. Although perhaps a separate board for Fantasy army lists would be useful, but again, I don't know about the amount of traffic to justify that.

I mean when we get enough traffic on the WHFB Board, of course. Wasn't suggesting we get a dedicated board for each WHFB Army. Just asking whether there's a possibility of Tau Online, being a 40K forum, to expand into Fantasy.

It certainly is a possibility, as we are here to cater for the community at large, and if enough of our community want seperate boards for each race in Fantasy, then I don't see a problem with that.

Maybe we could simply move Warhammer World into Games Workshop/40K Related rather than having it in the "Other GW Games Board", I'm saying this because it might increase its popularity and isn't a major change.

P.S. I love fantasy but still haven't got around to throwing a list into the Warhammer board :P

Here's an idea.

Perhaps the Warhammer Fantasy board doesn't get much activity because there are no army boards. Because it's not advertised as a large part of the site (I'm sure a lot of noobs don't know it exists), people don't go there. People aren't sure that there are others who play it and are willing to answer their questions.

Yes, the WW board doesn't get much traffic. But perhaps if it was bigger and a more integral part of the site, it would get more traffic.

Thoughts?

Yes, I know I said I'm away for a few weeks. I am. Can't devote much time to posting til I move into my new flat =]

I think Jester is right.
Plus you don'tpay for each board do you? If not, what do you lose?

Okay, how about a comprimise for the time-being... How about making the Warhammer World board more prominent, and if there is an increase in the activity there as a result, then we'll add the others in .

E.g. Spam more on the Fantasy Boards. Gotcha
