For instance when telling people people about trr.eldersouls.com it eliminates possible confusion that people might have and it's something unique in the sense that (I personally) don't see much of 'blahblahblah.website.com' I usually see 'www.website.com/forum-home'

I was just talking about what the URL points to. Eldersouls.com goes to the home page now.One thing I just realized with naming it domain.com/forum is that when you're viewing a forum like Skyrim General Discussion the domain will be domain.com/forum/forum/1-Skyrim-General-Discussion.Since having "forum" twice in the URL is a definite no-no I think I'm leaning towards community.eldersouls or eldersouls.com/community. This is also better because of things like blogs; domain.com/forum/blogs is kind of contradictory. Are you on a forum or blog? Community (or /board) is more general.
First of all, I think you made a mistake. The forums address is just Eldersouls.com while the home page is Eldersouls.com/index. Just letting you know.Also, I like Eldersouls/forums better. Forums.Eldersouls makes it look like a completely different website, in my opinion. Just my two cents, and I am fine with either. I also like forums better than community, since isn't community an area in the forums?

http://eldersouls.com/_/articles/the-dark-knight-rises-plot-holes-and-problems-r36The old URL should redirect to the new. Only downside is that all pre-existing social sharing such as facebook likes are lost since facebook keeps track of them according to the URL. This will still work in the future, though.The forum default is still eldersouls.com/index. The topics/forums are completely unchanged and ignore the /index, though, so I'm slightly concerned that's being dropped when clicking on them since it doesn't make much sense. If I change to eldersouls.com/community that will be static even when viewing threads, so that it's eldersouls.com/community on the index, and "eldersouls.com/community/forum/topic/Skyrim-Water" instead of "eldersouls.com/forum/topic/Skyrim-Water". It's longer but I think it's less confusing, no?Thanks for giving me feedback so far, it really does help even if to all of you it seems ridiculous/pointless/confusing/meaningless.
