I do agree with you guys partly. I do think we admins went overboard on a couple of sections. Like whats the difference between offtopic and blah? And between Q/A and Technical. We may deside to merge them.

That said I don't think having many sections is a bad thing aslong as the difference between them is clear. With the volume of postings increasing on the board it will be harder to deside which information is interesting to you and which isn't.

The regional sections are a good example, they add alot of volume to our site and may make our site look overwelming, but at the same time, once you figure out you can ignore the other regional sections as they should only contain topics relative to that region of the world, it becomes alot better (this is a task where our moderators need to keep a sharp eye out, if a topic is opened in a regional section that is interesting to all, it should be moved to one of the general sections)

Another is track and drift, there are many people that love track, but hate drift, and many that love drift and hate track. Luckely most people like bothSmile But splitting them made a whole lot of sence.

Another, look at the initial D section, there are many many hachi roku owners that don't care less about initial D, they probably like the fact its a separate section, they can ignore it and they will never be bothered by this stupid cartoon.
People that do like initial D do have a place on the board to express their effection with it. We did scale down the initial D section some time ago when we desided that we realy want to focus on the hachi roku, people really interested in discussing initial D in depth are better off at one of the initial D only forumsSmile

And so on..

Anyways, I'll take this up with banpei and see if we want to clean up a little. But really, we don't have that many sections on the board if you ignore the regional sections for a minute. We are however getting a volume of posting that having to few sections will really become a problem because you simply won't see the good threads between the 'bad' threads anymore..


*edit* just turned this into a real poll
