Subdivide The Forums Please?

Recommended Posts

I would very much like to see the forums subdivided, to make them easier to navigate. As it is, there are just soo many of them.

If you put them in several groups, it would make it a good bit eaiser.

Please?

I'm not sure what you are asking. The threads are already subdivided into appropriate categories. I think once you get beyond that, its hard to tell where things would go, as many threads cover a "variety" of topics (i.e., a thread in parents of kids with celiac might talk about symptoms, and food, and how to deal with a doctor, all in one thread).

GS,

Are you perusing each section seperately or all at once?

Basically, on the main page, you have a list of no less then 26 forums. If you put them in small groups with headers, it would make things much eaiser.

Look at the huge list!

I'd have to agree with you. I always look at the front page and think "gosh, is there a way to decrease the number of forums?" There are so many! But then I can't figure out a way to do it, but grouping them might help.

I actually think that's a great idea. It might really help the moderators out too with people posting in the wrong sections. I always just view new posts, but when I put up a new post I always struggle to find the appropriate forum. Perhaps you could PM Scott and suggest this or direct him to this thread.

I'm glad everyone else seems to like the idea. Now how do we tell scott?

Just an FYI:

I'm pretty sure that the software package that hosts the board is a standard package, so even *if* Scott wanted to make a big change like this, I don't even know if it would be possible.

Should be. Most forums manage it.
