    All,

    Later this afternoon, I will start the process of making some changes to the layout of the UK football forums.

    As discussed in other threads, we will be merging League One, League Two and Non-League content into a single forum. (The Football League and Non-League). However, the large number of threads to merge into one forum is going to take a significant amount of time, so as an interim measure the following will be happening:

    • The League Two and Non-League forums will be made read-only
    • The first page of each of the League Two and Non-League forums will be immediately merged into the League One forum
    Following these immediate changes, I will start the process of moving the existing threads from their original locations.

    In short, if you're looking for a specific (older) thread, and it's not in the combined forum it is still in the process of being moved, but will be available to view in the appropriate read-only forum. The process is expected to take several days in total.

    Definitely a good idea because the lower league forums have been like a ghost town for a while. Hopefully the threads will get more viewers now and consequently more replies.

    I don't mean to (but probably will) come across as a twat here but the combined league 1,2 and non league section is a massive mess at the minute

    My guess is it will start to settle down as people find their rhythm.

    However, in an effort to make it easier for everyone to view and navigate, I've added four thread prefixes to that forum:
    • League One
    • League Two
    • National League
    • Non-League
    When creating new threads from now on, a prefix must be selected, so threads will be marked with their relevant league. Users can then view only threads with a certain prefix (therefore only view League Two threads, for example) if they so choose.

    I like the prefixes added to the league 1 to non-league forum. Helps the threads stand out, particularly in the recent posts section.

    Thanks for the feedback. If indeed it's helpful and there is a demand for it, I will investigate the option of adding appropriate prefixes across the piece.

    I also agree that the coloured prefixes are quite nice and very noticeable.
