    90% of the threads in this forum are challenges, you can barely see any threads by people who actually need help or are trying to have a discussion.
    Whats your opinion on this?
    IMO there should be a challenges sub forum.

    No, I think it is really annoying too. It should have a seperate channel. I am always scrolling over these threads

    I honestly don't see a problem. It takes no discipline at all not to click on them.

    And there's nothing stopping anybody else from starting a thread on whatever topic interests them.

    If you cant beat them join them
    The same guy who created these challenges also created a "quick question" thread, so if you have a problem just go post it on the thread, you will get a reply in 5 minutes

    Just scroll down, if it's something you don't personally like then it's not that hard. If it helps people why not, I don't do them honestly but I think it's great that others do.

    The more divided a forum gets, the less attention each section will receive. Another thing too with an overly organized forum is that people won’t easily understand where to properly locate their thread. The better answer is for a forum to have sections that encompass the popular topics as broadly as they can without getting overwhelmed by floods of activity.

    Could NoFap’s structure be better tweaked? Perhaps. I don’t think an additional subsection is the answer though. I would support a thoughtful and intelligent mix of fewer sections that are clear, well defined and easy for the average user to understand how to use.

    Honestly it's pretty easy, because when somebody posts something new it's at the top of the section, or on the first/second page. I think it's encouraging to keep them there for people, as even newbies may participate from seeing it as well.

    Hi all :),
    I can't speak for other people ofcourse, just for myself.
    I started the challenges on the third day of my current streak, and i found them very helpful in setting smaller and then bigger goals towards my goal of 100 days.
    I started the 7 days, then 14 days, 21 days, 30 days and currently i'm on the 60 days challenge (day 13) :)
    Looking at the number of entries everyday on these challenges, imo they are a big success, just saying :)

    Hi everyone!
    IMO if you move the challenge thread into a sub-forum then it gets less attention as @2525 @OutsideTime said.

    Before i struggled to get a week but after accepting some challenges, i can introspect myself why I'm failing to achieve my desired streak and i discussed with other Fapstronauts in my challenge thread. As days goes by it helps me to get higher streaks. Now I'm finishing my week 3(which is my current highest streak) by accepting 365days of Monk mode challenge created by @2525 . In my point of view you should accept challenge you like and check where you stand and assess the progress you made. If you don't want yourself to put into a challenge then simply ignore them.
    Thank you!

    I personally think all challenges should be put under a 'category' too. Just like how you have Rebooting, Porn Addiction, Lonliness etc.
