First off welcome to all Sector City residents. I thank you for supporting this endeavor early on. I have a question for you all (or any passers by): Are there any other Sectors we should consider before we solidify the inaugural batch? Today I was considering maybe Sports/Athletics and Collectables. I'd be interested in your thoughts!

All I can say is the Miscellaneous section is going to get very crowded, and it's already filling up pretty quick. These sites represent most of the sites on Neocities that have high follow counts.

GeoCities did it right as the sections (cities) weren't too vague or too specific. That's what I think is the biggest problem right now.

I think I am fated to be in misc no matter how you slice it. :P

I find it hard to agree that it is very crowded as 1% of the spaces in all of the Miscellaneous sector blocks are used. It should be noted that we will likely offer a limited number of moves as new categories are introduced, should they better serve the residents.

I'm not saying it's very crowded, but what I'm saying is that these categories don't fit too well for many sites on Neocities so a very large chunk will likely be is misc. I agree on limiting the number of moves, I would limit it to two changes (excluding site name and description, just the spot a site's taking place).

I plan on making this larger than just Neocities, which is why I allow applicants to specify their server. It's just a nice testbed for now.

Well, that's my mistake. You could think of Neocities as a sample size I guess.

I think there needs to be a few new sectors... one Misc. needs a rename, something that evokes the old Heartlands neighborhood... maybe? and a sector for sites devoted to sites about pets (petsburg?) And maybe a children's sector for kids' sites and sites for children. (that one probably will need some oversight!) That's all I have for now.

I'll take the Children's and Pets sections into consideration. Thanks, Bill. And yes, all the sectors will be renamed but we're still a little ways off. keep your eyes peeled for more changes in the next few days, such as mission statements/descriptors for each sector.

I also haven't decided how or if I will handle very adult content. But I'm not worried about that yet. for the most part, right now, the sites I'm adding are relatively safe for work and generic.

No mistake, ModernXP! In all honesty I think I misread your original post. Misc is very generic, yes. But I'm hoping that maybe by giving more context to the directory and the sectors, as well as curating the categories, it might help people better find their "home"
