Suggestion -- how about consolidating some sections?


As a frequent reader and occasional poster on this forum, I often find the number of sections to be a little bit much. There's a lot of sections that get little traffic and if someone posts something there it's not very likely to be read by everyone. Many of the topics could simply fall into the general category.

Also, there's some overlap. If I have a question about attic ventilation, does that go into roofing or hvac?

Just some thoughts. I love the site. It's immensely helpful.

Most regular members use the 'todays posts' or 'new posts' option---I seldom actually go to a specific forum---

It can be confusing for new members-----

I personally prefer the range of sections. In fact, I don't think you could really break them up into smaller section, nor would I want to see any of them consolidated.

I like it the way it is....except for the spam....

You know the spam is bad when I'm reporting 2-3 a day.

In this fourm it is not too bad but just try couple other fourms they are ALOT worst than this they have insane number of slection and it kinda pain in arse to find them if you are not carefull.

However., There is one nice plus is that the Moderators are more than kind enough to assit the new members to post them in correct location.

There are quite few common catorgy it can be used ., I know it not super easy but once you know the general area then you can able dail down to spefic topic that you are looking for.

Once a while we get some OP'ers end up use wrong topic area and we do move them and let them know where it is located.

DDawg., I know what ya mean with spams they are neverending task.

Merci,
Marc

I do like Oh Mike says. I am on here just about every day and I just hit 'todays posts' under the 'quick links' tab. You have to be signed in to use that function. Then I just browse through the thread titles and read what I find interesting. I do that on several other forums and it seems to work well.
