Just subscribe to all the wallpaper threads that interest you, instead of wading through 3000 posts to find a wallpaper you "might" like.
Another time saver is to use the links in this sticky thread to quickly sort the threads into different categories.

in fact you could do the same for the iPad forum too.
We were skeptical to begin with, because we do try to keep forum bloat to a minimum (there are already LOTS of forums to scroll through). But we went ahead and did it.

When you click on the iPhone Wallpapers etc. or iPad Wallpapers etc. sub-forums, you're taken directly to the UI Customization sug-forum.

Explained in the second post of this thread:

And it's not a good idea to start a new thread of the same type as a thread that's been closed.

I guess it's the plain and simple idea of conserved systems but then again I don't like what confusion this system brings. It's like putting everything in it's own box. Putting a topic for each specie on the planet.
Keep it as it was and you'll satisfy not only the new members but the old.

These members seem to disagree with you to some extent.

But people weren't satisfied with the old difficult to navigate monster threads packed with every theme under the sun.

That's why we've implemented the new forum.

I'm not going to take this further. Do what you think is best. It's your forum to moderate.
I want to support your decision but something is telling me that this is wrong.

like the link to the wallpapers too.

here's a suggestion, how about adding a little "NEW" button to alert people of new changes and keep it in place for awhile?

see attached pic.

now have to try and get used to weeding through all the different threads.

Thanks for putting the link back under the iPhone section. I was getting concerned.

I think people who are looking for wallpapers and are in that forum, will find it as it is.

Or perhaps reading the thread titles or searching for the tags we've asked members to put in their OPs (as per the sticky).

Change can be difficult. But as Silent Panda pointed out, this particular change was requested.

That's a poor way to do it...decreased diversity. Just require a tag for each post so the thread is searchable. That seems to make more sense to me...

I prefer the changes because it saves going through one giant thread looking for a themed wallpaper. I don't want to spend time searching one huge thread.

At least now it's all categorized making it easier to just jump into a thread that interests you eg: Animals, people. perverts thread (NSFW) :P , logo's etc.

I find it funny that people bitch about this and stamp their feet demanding a change when it's a free forum that people spend hours moderating. lol

That's like me going into a shop and demanding they change the layout because I feel inconvenienced. it's.not.going.to.happen..... Trust me, i've tried
