    The idea is to do this as smoothly as possible. The final "section list" won't be so long as we'll be refining the list above in Step 2. Where applicable, we'll move things around to fit the new structure, so we'll make use of current/old sub-forums and threads/sticky's to fill the new sections. For example, the current Mobile Web Design sub-forum threads would be divided amongst the new Mobile Web Design section sub-forums (in a way that makes sense, obviously, not just randomly). This is going to take a bit of work cherry-picking the right content but it will avoid having empty forums.

    Using the RSS Feed (at least temporarily) to fill otherwise empty new sub-forums is a great idea, although not one I wish to rely on in the long-term obviously. I also plan on inviting people relevant to each new section to post a sticky to help get things started. If all else fails, I'll create relevant sticky's in each section to spark things up.

    I have no desire to have the homepage flooded with empty forums as that will make us look bad, but I also don't want to wait too long to reorganize Mobility as I think it's long overdue. Things have gotten a bit stale lately and we need to breathe new life into the forum by making it more attractive and relevant to a wider mobile audience.

    Anyway, this is all something to think about when we start the refinement process.

    mobile future / mobile ideas - What would people LIKE to do with their mobiles if they could - get ideas - e.g., monitoring, other future functions yet to be determined use of handhelds not covered under "controls" section

    mobile safety - device use concerns - phishing, antivirus, loss of data, loss of phone, repetitive thumb injuries, brain cancer debate, accidents caused by distraction using devices while driving or walking

    Hello,

    I would advice also a dot-TEL place, and everything related to it
    (I mean : how to use, the many applications we don't know yet enough about, the evolution, the importance about the extension, sellingplace, etc..you name it).
    It's quite obvious that this extention and it's uses will have to grow
    still. But we can't ignore the fact that .TEL will be used on
    MOBILE-PHONES.

    Instead of a SEPERATE FORUM for dottel, I would suggest to INTEGRATE this in
    the MOBILITY-FORUM.
    We could also CONTACT the DOTTEL-registry for giving advice like is done with the
    dotmobiregistry (also to suggest applications, or to discuss distinction between
    dotmobi and dotTEL ) : becoming a forum of specialised advisors to them.

    The problem with .tel is that it's not specific to mobiles, so I don't know if it's really "mobile" relevant, particularly since they can't be developed in the traditional sense. How do others feels about this?


    Also, I'm closing this list on Friday, so let's start wrapping this up before we move on to Step 2.

    I'd like to see the Mobile Events section go live sooner than later. Mobile Brain Bank is a great program (currently in Finland but I will be working on it in San Diego soon) and there's not really a good place to publish it on the forum right now (news, I guess). Thanks!

    To me it's a maybe. I mean I'm not much interested in .tel but if there is a space or subspace somewhere for it why not give it a try? Because I'm not sure there is another venue to discuss it, and imo if it succeeds it probably is relevant to people on phones searching for phone numbers. It's also an interesting area to see if people monetise .tel names or not.

    If it ends up being a waste of space it can be dropped. What do others think?

    mobile + banking, search, monetization, voting, polls, surveys, lottery, health / medicine, networks, providers, discounts, tarifs, contracts, education, finance, insurance, ticketing etc etc

    Just some suggestions that may fit under other categories.

    Fair enough, I suppose .tel could complement the other sections and it doesn't hurt to have it if there's demand for it, and they are compatible with mobile phones after all, so why not?

    I've added it to the list.

    Great idea, but I think this would fall under "Mobile Advertising" (e.g. as a sub-forum of that section), what do you think?

    Last call for Mobile Sub-industries to add to the list before we wrap this up tomorrow and start refining the list into Sections.

    I'm surprised not to see

    Mobile Travel

    as a common topic on this list. There are special ones like GPS, Geolocation etc. but I think this is one of the key industries in the mobile world.

    mobile apps.

    Maybe you thought I wasn't serious about mobile homes and you thought you can't live in a phone? Come on, the Japanese love miniaturisation and have limited space and our knowledge of genetics advances by the day...





    Apparently that Telefonica building is the tallest building in Chile

    and to make living in a phone bearable, how about this flask from Amazon:

    OK folk, I think the best way of going about this reorganization is to move in a top-down fashion:

    1) List ALL the "sub-industries" currently in existence within the mobile industry.
    2) Narrow #1 down to useful and relevant "sections" of the forum.
    3) Put #2 in the most relevant order as should be displayed in the forum homepage.
    4) Rinse and Repeat for the sub-forums of each section in #3.
    OK folks, we're done with Step 1, thanks for all your contributions! We have a great list to work from and it's now time to refine it.

    First of all, as a reminder, below is the current layout of the forum. The words in BOLD are the Sections (they have a blue background on the homepage), which is what we're currently working on.

    I think the best way to do this is to go through the each element one-by-one and then list which ones you think should:

    1. DEFINITELY be a Section
    2. MAYBE be a Section
    3. DEFINITELY NOT be a Section
    If you want to give your reasons why, that's even better, but you don't have to, particularly since it's a giant list.

    So go ahead and sort through the list with the criteria above and let me know so we can start getting an idea of the new layout of Mobility.

    Also, don't worry about which should be a Sub-forum, we'll get to that later. Let's focus only on Sections of Mobility for now so we don't get side-tracked. And don't worry about the order either, we'll figure that out when we have the final list.

    Lastly, just to be clear, putting something on the DEFINITELY NOT list does not mean it won't appear anywhere on Mobility, it just means you don't think it should be a Section, so it could still end up as a Sub-forum once we're done with this Step.

    As a general rule of thumb, if something on the list we brainstormed in Step 1 can itself have sub-elements (e.g. sub-forums), then it makes sense to make it a Section, but if it has no sub-elements and it itself is the final element, then it probably does not belong as a Section. In other words, the more general the term, the more it belongs as a Section, and the more specific the term, the more it belongs as a Sub-forum.

    Here's what I've quickly come up with:

    DEFINITELY be a Section:

    • Mobile Community
    • Mobile News
    • Mobile Web Design
    • Mobile Web Development
    • Mobile Applications
    • Mobile Testing
    • Mobile Software
    • Mobile Solutions
    • Mobile Publishing
    • Mobile Domain Names (.mobi)
    • Mobile Marketing
    • Mobile Advertising
    • Mobile Monetization
    • Mobile Affiliate Programs
    • Mobile Search
    • Mobile SEO
    • Mobile Commerce
    • Mobile Payments
    • Mobile Marketplace
    • Mobile Job Board
    • Mobile Phones
    • Mobile Devices (e.g. other than phones)
    • Mobile Carriers
    • Mobile Manufacturers
    • Mobile Plans
    • Mobile Services
    • Mobile Operating Systems
    • Mobile Browsers
    • Mobile Blogging / Microblogging
    • Mobile Future
    • Mobile Technology
    • Mobile Video
    • Mobile VOIP
    • Mobile Barcodes
    • Mobile Location-Based Services
    • Mobile GPS / Geolocation
    • Mobile Events
    • Mobile Content
    • Mobile Industry
    • Mobile Social
    • Mobile Adult
    • Mobile Gambling
    • Mobile Reviews

    MABYE be a Section:

    • Mobile User Experience
    • Mobile Prepaid
    • Mobile Transcoding
    • Mobile SMS
    • Mobile CMS
    • Mobile Application Development
    • Mobile Handsets
    • Mobile User-Generated Content
    • Mobile TV
    • Mobile Tracking
    • Mobile Scanners
    • Mobile Podcasts
    • Mobile Ideas
    • .tel
    • Mobile Banking
    • Mobile Networks
    • Mobile Providers
    • Mobile Contracts
    • Mobile Education
    • Mobile Finance
    • Mobile Guides
    • Mobile Books
    • Mobile Laws
    • Mobile GSM
    • Mobile CDMA
    • Mobile WAP
    • Mobile Open Source
    • Mobile Tools
    • Mobile Money
    • Mobile Broadband
    • Mobile Stores
    • Mobile Downloads
    • Mobile Websites
    • Mobile Emulators
    • Mobile Gadgets
    • Mobile Netbooks
    • Mobile Sales

    DEFINITELY NOT be a Section:

    • Mobile Insurance
    • Mobile Ticketing
    • Mobile Chat
    • Mobile Dating
    • Mobile Safety
    • Mobile 3G
    • Mobile 4G
    • Mobile Games
    • Mobile Ringtones
    • Mobile Themes
    • Mobile Wallpapers
    • Mobile Gaming
    • Mobile Scams
    • Mobile Viruses
    • Mobile Bullying
    • Mobile Travel
    • Mobile Contests
    • Mobile Accessories
    • Mobile Streaming
    • Mobile Controls
    • Mobile Repairs
    • Mobile Shopping
    • Mobile Discounts
    • Mobile Lottery
    • Mobile Voting
    • Mobile Polls
    • Mobile Photos
    • Mobile Surveys
    • Mobile Health
    • Mobile Medicine
    • Mobile Tariffs
    If you don't feel like going through the entire list and making up your own list, you can just use mine as a starting point and give your opinion on which elements should perhaps be moved to a different category and why.

    This Step 2 is by no means easy but it is critical as it will define the layout of the new Mobility. Remember, there are no wrong answers here, so don't be shy about stating your opinions and getting your voices heard!

    I want to make sure we have the best damn mobile industry forum on the planet, so let's do it!

    I may be a mobile noob, because I see a lot of redundancy or categories that should be consolidated as subs. I like how crapfest.np has their layout in respect to categories / subs.

    I think it would make the forum look better in two ways; first the forum would look filled as the main category would probably get a lot of attention (think crapfest/discussion); and second the forum would look expansive as you find deeper,relevant categories to explore.

    That may be what is going on here, as I have admittedly not followed every post, but if it's not, that is my opinion.

    Don't all jump at once, folks!

    Any thoughts?

    I have no problem re-organizing the forum myself, but I'd obviously prefer to do it together with the community so that we get more input.

    I never look at which section I am in because I always go to "New Posts" and choose from there based on subject line.

    Some random section ideas not in any order:


    Mobile News -currect rss feeds expanded to news in all of the new sections (make news sections some viewable to members only)

    Mobile Community -who's who and what's up

    Any of the sections that apply to real people - the current members
    and new companys -a place to be heard and to educate - listing their websites - upcoming programs, tradeshows podcasts. Companys wanting to be introduced through ads, offers, video presentations, jobs - listing of services - jobs wanted, also offer a "real time connected social aspect" for the mobile community. twitter links etc -

    Mobile MarketPlace - Sale, sold,
    Anything to do with actual transactions that involve money. Sales, Sold, For sale -Trades - This may overlap with community in some areas
    (factual data, reviews, complaints,)

    Mobile Resources

    Revised mobility .mobi of today where breakdown of sections could be accessed.

    Thanks for your replies, folks, but I think you all got stuck back in Step 1.

    We're no longer brainstorming sections, we're now choosing which of the sections we've already brainstormed should go live on Mobility.

    Have a read through this post and let me know: http://mobility.mobi/showpost.php?p=133544&postcount=52

    Thanks!

    This is going to be a long process so we can't afford to waste any time.

    I agree, I don't look at sections much.

    I also agree with the point that you want to avoid empty looking sections.

    How about a few broad headings like these, for example:

    Domains

    Web

    SEO

    Design

    Scripting

    Freelance ?

    Tech / phones

    Networks / Carriers

    Community



    And will it become possible for users to configure what they actually see, so we can't assume everyone is even seeing, let alone using, the same content.

    If you really have a lot of different stuff some ways of highlighting /filtering make sense, even a random thread viewer. Not to mention a tag cloud?
