    Hi everyone.

    We are planning to eventually move to a better forum software. Many, including myself, would like to see some forum sections reorganised. For instance, it was suggested to combine Train Sim World PC and Console discussions into one, considering that we are now aiming to release on both versions at the same time.

    Feel free to add your suggestions here.

    I would definitely like to see some better (perhaps automatic) handling of the content suggestions section. Too many threads with just a few replies clog up the entire section, pushing the suggestions that had effort put in down the list and making them harder to see. A proposal that's just 3 sentences long and has zero replies does not deserve to have its own place on the top of the list.

    Perhaps auto-delete suggestions that don't reach a certain length to stop spamming of content suggestions with low effort posts.

    Disable any downvote functionality as it is mainly creating bad vibes.

    Delete suggestions and proposals of road, loco, material, because you do not take it into account

    Sintbert Yes, no Downvotes! And the bottom wallpaper of the forum with a Winner Screenshot, please. Also, we can only post a proposal if is GOOD, with minimum 2 images and X number of words.

    Please make ensure that users can only post in existing subforums i.e. prevent the current situation where if you select the PC, PS4 or XBox forums there are numerous threads which are not posted in any of the existing subforums.

    It would be nice if users were able to mark various subforums as read. Currently the only way to do this is to individually open every thread in a forum which is not really feasible in some of the more popular subforums.

    DTG should actually respond to proposals and ideas that took effort.
    Like if you do a proposal that catches their eye they could say ‘this is a good idea we will take it into account’ or something like that
