…Ouch. That's a huge number of options, plus those too-long descriptions. Why not condense this, to make it easier to navigate and to increase activity in specific forums? We don't need a forum for sharking and another for memory viewer, since they're the exact same thing. Heck, we may as well just merge them and the two hacking forums together, there's no need for them.

Since my ideas are always great, here's what I recommend:

News: ; We can probably get rid of this, it just takes up space

Links:                  ; These should all be removed from
Glitch City Laboratories ; the forum list. Make the banner link
Project: Melchior        ; to the main page, and put the other
GCL Chatroom            ; two as links up top.

Announcements:      ; Rename this to "Glitch City Labs:"
Forum Announcements ; Site takes priority, put it first ("Site Discussion")
Site Announcements  ; Put forum disc. second ("Forum Discussion")

Glitch City Labs Projects: ; Put these under "Glitch City Labs:"
GlitchBattle              ; and remove the "GCL projects" heading
- Archived Releases
Pokemon GCL Version

Site Stuff:            ; Remove this heading
Submit A Glitch        ; Move to "Glitch Discussion:"
- Approved Submissions ; no change
-- Added Submissions  ; no change
- Denied Submissions  ; remove this, just close threads in the "Submit a Glitch" section
- Emulator Movies and Saves Submissions ; Put under "Emulation:"
Site Discussion          ; merge with "Site Discussion"
- #glitchcity Discussion ; subforum of "Site Discussion"
Bug Reports              ; merge with "Site Discussion"
Suggestions/Complaints  ; merge with "Site Discussion"
- Submit a Game          ; subforum to "Forum Discussion"? meh, I don't play forum arcades
Introductions/Goodbyes  ; put under "Site Discussion:", possibly rename (sounds too stiff)

Discussion Topics:
General Game Glitch Discussion ; rename to "Glitches," subforum to "Other Video Games"
General Discussion            ; rename to "General Chat"
Anonymous Discussion
Pokemon Discussion            ; make "Other Video Games" follow this one
- Rate My Team
Pokemon Glitch Discussion      ; do we really need this section?
General Gaming Discussion      ; rename to "Other Video Games"
Game Hacking Discussion        ; merge into "ROM Hacking"
Video Game Emulation          ; merge into "ROM Hacking"
Multimedia Discussion          ; rename to "Entertainment"

Pokemon Game Hacking:          ; i guess we can keep this header, but rename to "Game Modification"
Pokemon ROM Hacking            ; rename to "ROM Hacking"
Hacking with Gameshark/Other Devices ; merge into "ROM Hacking"
Hacking with VBA Memory Viewer      ; merge into "ROM Hacking"

Creative Movements (formerly Fan Stuff): ; no need to say what it "formerly" was, same goes for the subforums
Writing    ; fine as it is
Art        ; fine as it is
Websites    ; fine as it is
Video Games ; rename to "Computer Programming"

Off Topic:
Forum Games ; ugh
RPG's      ; rename to "Role-Playing," put above Forum Games
Debate Wars ; rename to "Debate," wars seems overly pessimistic

Etc Etc: ; rename to "etc:"
The Dumpster Out Back
Calendar Events

Staff/Exclusive forums should be put under "Site Discussion:"

See how that works so well? We suddenly have the bloated list reduced to this:
