You guys probably think I'm nuts, but I am considering doing a massive *condensing* of ALL forums on the site. I think that having so many forums and subforums levels deep just is so incredibly confusing and overwhelming to new visitors.
What I am proposing is getting rid of all subforums and just keeping everything one level deep. What this would inevitably mean, for example, is dividing Tech Talk into Windows, Mac, Linux, Networking, Hardware ... and that's it. No more trying to figure out whether your computer malfunctions and frustrations belong in the Viruses forum or in the Windows XP forum or in the Windows Software forum. If you use Windows, you post in the Windows forum. Simple and easy as that.
Similarly, the Databases forum wouldn't be dividied into MySQL, MSSQL, Database Design, etc.
Yes? No? Maybe So?
