We’ve got some major changes coming to some long-standing naming conventions and general organization behind what you’ve seen in the Forums up until today. We’ve become sensitive to the fact that some of our Forum and sub-forum names may not be as descriptive as they could be, which might lead to confusion about what topics should be discussed within. So they’re getting a chance. We’re also combining some similarly themed and lower activity sub-forums in hopes of making navigation around those forums simpler and maybe spark some interest in similar but different topics. You’ll also see some existing sub-forums move to existing or newly created “parent” forums, while other sub-forums break out and become their own parent forums.
We’re making these changes in hopes of helping you better identify where to post and search, while also making it easier to get around.
