Removed Misc Sections and Categories in the Select Section - A Site Idea.

So I've seen how people might've mislead stuff when pressing the Add button from a game section. I noticed many newcomers have clicked the Ideas Section to ask questions regarding to Friday Night Funkin' problems such as "How do I play mods and tutorial is unclear" or "How can I install other mods within a VS week".

So from my observation, after newcomers click Add, they present to the "Select Section" page, where you can select one of the sections. But here's the problem, when people click the Ideas section from https://gamebanana.com/add?gameid=8694, they brought themselves to the Ideas section but it looks like it was treated as a separate section, dedicated to that game section, as you can see the game ID is copied here.
https://gamebanana.com/ideas/add?gameid=8694

Even if you click the Ideas Section, this section does not bring you and submit to the game section's page but rather in the Ideas Page.

So I have two separate proposal, you decide which is better or you have a better idea in the comments:
  1. Remove both the Misc Sections and Categories as this is how newcomers submit or post things unrelated. Categories could also be removed from the Select Section page and anyone can submit a new category when adding new submission. (Example)
  2. Improve the Select Section page or have the other sections a part of the game section. Tho I do believe this one could be difficult as you have to apply Ideas, Studios, App, Game, etc. to every game section.

Like, every single day, there's gonna be newcomers from the FNF section submitting questions about games, game requests, and need of help in the Ideas section. That's all.

Before:


After:


Now, all of you may be thinking, how can ANYONE submit Ideas, Apps, etc?
At the first page when clicking Add from the Homepage.

    Guess we need to reconsider the UI now with the recent massive reorganization of the site categories.

    Totally in favour of this. I don't want to see the site admins suffering with tons of unrelated content in GameBanana-related sections.

    They shouldn't be removed but rather restricted to the Gamebanana section.
