    Default Suggestion for new subforum.

    I'm not sure if this the right place, but I'm sure if this idea is going to gain any traction, it would need attention from a mod. Anyways, I think that Homebrew Design could use a subforum for homebrew systems. I don't know how many forumgoers would agree, but I believe that it's distinct enough from the main Homebrew Design and the World Building subforum that it would be a benefit to any people brewing new game systems to have a separate place to do so.

    We have a subforum titled "Older D&D/AD&D and Other Systems" and it's not because those things are similar. I sincerely doubt we have enough traffic to justify a system design subforum.

    I believe the suggestion was for a new subforum in Homebrew Design, not a new subforum in Roleplaying Games (where Older D&D/AD&D and Other Systems is located).

    There are subforums with 1,200 threads. Homebrew Design has 37,000. If it had 1/35 of the Homebrew forum, it wouldn't be the smallest one.

    From what I remember about previous discussions on the topic, the standard for getting a new subforum is more "This topic is overwhelming everything else" rather than "this topic is getting lost in the other stuff".
    I have my own TV show featuring local musicians performing live. YouTube page with full episodes and outtake clips here.
    I also have another YouTube page with local live music clips I've filmed on my own.
    Then there is my gaming YouTube page with Kerbal Space Program, Minecraft, and others.
    Finally, I stream on Twitch, mostly Kerbal Space Program and Minecraft.

    Sheriff: Thanks for the suggestion. We'll add it to the list of things to consider. It seems unlikely, though. The content you suggest fits well enough within the general Homebrew umbrella. There's already an original system tag for use within that section. And in the last month there have been only 14 threads using that tag. There doesn't seem to be a problem with original system content being unfindable or overwhelming the current forum. Finally, while it probably seems an easy, cost-free thing to do to split off a subform, it actually has certain technical and other repercussions.
