I am aware that gamefaqs has been against merging boards in the past but I believe there is a good case for re-addressing the issue.

Fortnite is the most popular game on twitch and arguably the most popular game in the world. A lot of the people that play fortnite do so on PC. These are the forums on gamefaqs for fortnite.

The most popular game on twitch has one of the worst PC boards on gamefaqs. The xbox board is better but it is still extremely lacking. People see the dead board and then leave and never check gamefaqs for fortnite again.

However the PS4 is doing all right because a lot of users that are familiar with gamefaqs are used to multi-platform games unofficially adopting one board as the board that everyone goes to. But most users leave gamefaqs and never come back to it for fortnite information.

My suggestion would be to merge the boards for multi-platform games and possibly add flair to topic titles. This gives the community a chance to grow and people are more likely to keep coming to gamefaqs.

I've seen that post and I really think they should look at it again. They are losing a lot of hits because of how dead certain boards become. The most popular game on Twitch has a board with 32 topics.

It has been only seven days and seventeen hours since that idea was shot down.

I understand that some ideas get re-suggested, but please, at least check the list of would-be-open-if-a-mod-didn't-lock-it topics first! ;)

I only saw the one page for the board so I didn't try searching, didn't know there was a topic made that recently. Last topic I remember seeing was the one posted earlier from nearly a year ago.

I also wanted to remake the topic again to try and make a case for the fact that they are losing hits due to the way the boards are set up now.

Just give us a way to view all the topics from the different boards on one page. You don't have to actually merge them.

A good idea, but questionable how to implement it in a visible manner.

When clicking on game data, it shows other platforms in the sidebar... if one is looking for it.

Yeah, it's basically the worst thing they have ever done, the boards are basically un-useable at the moment, and the trolls are taking full advantage.
