Add new message board top-level folder for hobby "decorating"?

Hey lovely KI wizards?

Now that decorating and and castle tours have badges of their own, does that mean it's a full fledged hobby?

If so, can decorating have it's own message board folder with the other hobbies?

Pretty please?

Hi RoslynFP, a great idea!

Let's see how many reply to this thread with interest in a general "Housing & Castle Tours" section of the forums... we want to make sure there's sufficient interest to ensure the section isn't too barren :).

This is a great idea! Such a category would be a good place for those who want to share decorating tips or have questions!

I support this. I think it would be a nice way to bring together the housing community on the forums here.

What about a custom pattern system! I have a little drawing pad I would love to use! Maybe we can stitch designs to blank tees, cloaks ect.... maybe some easels and posters? Blank wallpaper or flooring?

While this isn't really furniture, I do have an obsession with collecting House Guests from Monstrology. I would like this idea.

perhaps an idea, if there's an easy way to implement it, would be to scan the forums and see how many threads have already been started that deal with decorations/house guests/pet limits, etc

Sparck, I love this idea. Any chance there could be a tagging system added so that a post in the Housing/Decorating board could be automatically duplicated and sent for moderation to add to another board as well?

Like down there under Options:

  • Watch this topic for replies
  • Auto-submit to Dorms
  • Auto-submit to Commons


I've had questions about the new decorating system that have gone unanswered, so focus with a specialized board might help BUT I've also had ideas for changes or additions so discussing it in the Dorms would be natural - yet, people who are browsing for education on the topic would naturally only go to read the specialized one - SO I think it might be most useful if some posts could be checked by the mods for duplication on two or more boards.

**To be clear - in order to have all the education and discussion in one place we'd initially submit in the main topic area - but a mod would decide if that individual post would also be good in the broader conversation of discussing things already in game or ideas to change or improve the game as well.

In addition, it can be a place for stitching, too! Aesthetics and W101's variety in it is honestly one of the best things about the game

It's a little off the original topic, but if the title was worked right it could help make the board active enough.

Plus if they ever introduce Housing Item Stitching or "Facing" it would be on brand.

(I REALLY want that one -
my Gear Vaults could look like urns, plants, wardrobes, little Fire Cat Alley reward trunks *____* )

Great - I would definitely love to see tips and techniques especially from some of the top rated houses/dorms.

I think it would be a great idea. Decorating is a big part of the game, and with the recent castle tour changes and event it would be great to have a decorating topic :)

I think this is a great idea!

This is definitely an in-game hobby.

I love it when my friends go all out and come up with arrangements and designs that I would have never thought of.

Yes, this is a great idea. Especially with Castle Tours and Castle Magic becoming a thing of its own, giving a space for talented decorators to swap techniques is long overdue.

I also think that this would be a good idea. Especially given you just had a Housing RoundTable :)

I love this idea, I always have questions and want to ask advice from the amazing decorators out there. I'm interested in getting started in this side of wiz, so having a forum to scout would be awesome.
