    Those two things are very different categories. Such inane change was like making general gaming into a subforum of general RPG discussion. How about changing that by either revoking the existence of something that barely has more than one page of threads by merging it back with the Playground or perhaps moving it to somewhere in the main page?

    PS: Not going to put a lot effort in this thread given the 0.00000000000000001% chances of an even remotely positive result.

    I find it hard to decide on this. On one hand, you are right that there are not enough threads to justify a separate forum. A tag would probably serve just as well.

    On the other hand, these are indeed two very different things, enough so that merging them back might not be the best of ideas. I have 9000 posts in CYOAs and about 900 in the rest of the Playground. Clearly, one of them interests me more than the other.

    They have a lot in common with interactive LPs that try to engage the audience by making them choose how to progress the game. In that sense, they belong to the Playground. As I think does the multiplayer subforum (and anything that makes people get together to play games), but that's another matter.

    Moving the link to the main page for higher visibility is something I proposed, but no one is interested, it seems. We have a Let's Play section in the upper-right corner, they would fit there well.

    If in doubt, nest it into Playground.
