Game Community Suggestions

Recently, for those who aren't aware, itch.io released a feature that allows each game to have its own separate community forum similar to how the global forum works. This is a brilliant feature.

However, I'd like to suggest a few things that could be added to it.

First off, I'd like to suggest to add an option that allows games to share the same forum. I've made a game called Project Plasma and a mobile spin-off (sort of) called Project Plasma Mobile (PPM) which currently use the same community forum as they are both in the same lineup of games. I also plan to make Project Plasma into a full, sequential series which will also share that same forum. Currently, the closest thing I can do to having the games share a community forum is simply linking to the Project Plasma forum in PPM's description on the page. It'd be nice if there was an option to actually have it "officially" (for lack of a better word) share Project Plasma's forum rather than simply just putting a link to it in the description.

The second thing I'd like to suggest is being able to add separate boards to the forum. I feel this would tie in well with the above suggestion as it would allow game devs to add separate categories for each instalment of the game.

A third suggestion would be to also allow communities for each dev as well as having communities for each game. (Credit for this suggestion goes to alainfrancke.)

Not sure if already suggested (or it's been implemented and I didn't notice) but it would be cool if instead of having forums related to a particular game there could be the possibility to have forums around a prolific creator (like Robert Yang, Vaida, etc.) so the discussions could go more about the general style/thematic of the author/studio.

Yeah that'd be nice as well. I'll add that to the first post and give credit.

Thanks for the suggestions Mark G. If you want I can set up subcategories for your on your current board. Just say the word. I didn't make the feature public yet but, but it's easy to change.

Nice. I'm currently in the process of planning what categories I'm wanting on the PP community forum, once I've got it all planned out I'll let you know what needs doing.

Thanks!
