Just out of curiosity is the intention to change domain names with each generation? Wouldn't that kill search rankings and SEO? Just because you mentioned PSX5
I personally like the idea and I know we spoke briefly in a PM which I outlined my thoughts.
A couple of things:
Keep it minimal to start with. No point in having say 20 odd forum caterogies.
Playstation General Discussion
Gaming General Discussion
To be honest you've got the categories well laid out here.
I did mention more in my PM.
Probably. But since Sony puts an extra number in every generation, kinda don't really have a choice lol. Back in the day, search engine rankings were different. Now that it takes in account mobile accessibility, link ease of reading and all sorts of shit, we are, and have been, ranked low for a very long time. Thanks Google!
I know I probably should drop the X out of the name for SEO purposes but it harks back to the PS2 days of the site. In that generation, a lot of people called the PS2 the PSX2 (at least in the early days of the generation. The original PlayStation was called the PSX). I kinda like it and is this place's brand in a way, so I don't want to drop it. What I was toying with was grabbing the PS5Central domain and just putting a redirect on it.
For categories, I ain't going crazy. Just adding in a PS5 section. With the amount of traffic here, I may actually trim some things down if anything. Simplicity on these kinds of forums is key. You don't want to overwhelm people, especially if they're on their phone. I learned that the hard way a few years ago
It took me some time to find the right balance.
