nodak651 Posted November 29, 2017 Share Posted November 29, 2017 A few years ago I posted here asking for a dedicated volleyball thread. I appreciate your guys effort in making that happen, and I think you making this happen has been very successful and good for the program. Today I have a new suggestion, as I think there can be some confusion and lack of awareness of topics posted that pertain to the general happenings of UND in academics and athletics. UND academic topics are currently posted in "Community". I think renaming the topic by adding something pertaining to UND Academics or creating a new topic that separates discussion of general happenings at UND from topics relating to Grand Forks and the State of North Dakota would be beneficial. I don't have any evidence to back this up, but I believe having a separate topic for UND academics, faculty, and facilities would increase participation and awareness in these areas. There are many UND news articles that are published in the Herald and never discussed on this website. SiouxSports is also lacking a logical place to post general Athletic Department happenings, such as department-wide apperal deals, media deals, conference affiliation matters, and general AD staffing topics. These topics are typically discussed in topics related to specific sports, when they are often relevant to all sports at UND. IMO, I think that this causes the threads posted about some of the issues in these categories to be missed or under-discussed by users who do not venture into non hockey or football or basketball threads, even though some of the issues posted under these topics are relevant to the sports that they care about. Perhaps there is a better way to categorize department-wide athletics topics? Maybe it would be lumped in with with General UND Discussion for academics/athletics, and there could be a separate topic for Grand Forks/State of North Dakota issues. General UND AD issues could potentially be included with "NCAA News", too. Also, I think this is the best run college athletics message board, and appreciate those who moderate and manage/own siouxsports.com. I am just wondering if you guys think that there is room for improvement. I know that too many topics can also be a bad thing if they aren't used enough. What do you think guys think? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
