Is everything fine? Too cluttered? Boards covering the essential topics?

Should 'Adult' and 'Bounty' be moved into 'Off topic' or 'Media'? What do you, the users, prefer?

Too cluttered as it is now.  Less is more.  The previous set up was much better.  This board is very diluted for such a small membership.

For instance, why 3 hentai boards?  It might seem a good idea at first, but then when they're not used or only sparingly, it becomes just another inactive subforum and makes the whole board look bad.  Often what seems like a subforum is really only worthy of a thread.

Literacy Works, Animated Music Videos and Wallpapers should just be merged under Fanworks.  Literally every Wallpaper and AMV subforum I ever saw at a Tenchi forum was never really used.  It's often more of a thread than a subforum.

Here's a guide on how not to do it:
http://tenchimuyo79943.yuku.com/

Here would be my suggested layout:

Forum
-Announcements & Suggestions (sticky the announcements in one thread, allow no replies so not to clutter it up, feedback can be in a suggestion thread)
-Member Introductions

Anime
-Tenchi Muyo
-War on Geminar
-Other Kajishima-verse
-All Other Anime

Other
-General Discussion
-Fanworks
-Video Games
-Hentai
-Board Game (if needed, I never really liked these myself, but putting it above the real focus of the board, Tenchi Muyo, seems counterproductive)

Of course, I have different priorities than other people here and would really pare it down further than my proposal but given with the interests of the other people here it's not realistic.  But whatever the case, don't fill it up off the bat.  For instance, with that hentai thing, try a single board first, and if it becomes too fast-paced and hard to find stuff, then split it up.

Also, do away with the childboards, they are a bane imo.

Okay, well. It was decided that things would remain generally the same. In the case if this site gets more members, those boards might become active. But if they aren't, then they will be removed or merged with others.

I was wondering about that too, we'll see if we can get it up.

Some of the spelling for the board names should be adjusted. 

Maybe some more specific anime boards as well, or splitting hte general section into one for science, one for world events, and one for popular culture?
Help out with improving the Tenchi Muyo wiki:

Well, the anime boards are for people to create their own specific anime topics. Since we wouldn't really know what anime people like.
But I think I can add child boards for science, world events, and pop culture.

Suggestion: Embedded video support would be nice. I noticed youtube videos do not seem to work as embedded links.

I second this.
