It strikes me that this thread http://www.playdiplomacy.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=551&t=14598 should be moved up a level (turned into a sub forum?) to sit next to 'Games Looking for Players' and 'Applications' etc. Perhaps even at the top...

It's just not immediately obvious where to find this info and the easier we make it for folk; the better?

I'll leave it to the group leaders, though I would say that it being a sticky at the top of the Applications sub-forum would make it fairly visible. The alternative is to perhaps have it made into an 'announcement' with the Applications sub-forum, which would separate it from the rest.

The reason I suggested it being elevated out of Applications is because it contains much more than application information. It's basically an (almost) everything you wanted to know about the Classicists piece with lots of handy links to other places (consitution, league table, events, feedback etc) all the info about membership requirements/ tiers etc.

Admittedly a few of the links need updated.

We could always leave this where it is and just sticky a equivalent 'Welcome!' to the top of the main Classicist's page.

I think stickying a welcome on the main page would do just fine. I dont think moving the whole thread out of the subforum is necessary.

I went ahead and duplicated Raphtown's post from Applications to the main Classicist page. I think it's a great introduction, and still a useful applications guide, so don't see a downside to having it in both places.

Thanks for raising Boach!
