    Request for LESS Forums ? Fora, Forai

    When I start a new topic I get confused as to the volume of Forums on offer, surely they could be cut down to save my quandary.
    Why the need for 'Travel and Vacation' and 'Holidays' for instance ?
    And the there is the 'Pub Nutters Inn' (shouldn't that have an apostrophe ?) and 'The Coffee Shop' .......are they for teetotaler and drunk subjects ?

    This is brought on by the latest topic I am just about to post.......not sure where to put it, and does it really matter ?
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    Maybe we should have a new forum to discuss this?
    I agree with you on this - I spend more time trying to pick the best forum to place a post into than I do creating the post sometimes.
    We should be able to create a poll and have folks mark ones they like and get rid of the others?
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    Turn it into a 'Reality' programme. Set a target number of forums to remain, and each week vote one out.

    The range of forums is a historical aspect of the site. Far too much information would be lost were it reorganized, and the Google indexing would be screwed for years to come. The choice of forum isn't compulsory, the management and moderation teams make no recommendation on forum selection, by all means post every new thread into General if you prefer. What we can't do is delete any existing forum area.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I thought that might be the answer........but
    How can we change the world if we can't dock a few categories off a forum ?
    That is a rhetorical question.

    Maybe all new posts should be designated to a few general categories while keeping the older ones.
    Gosh, it would be awful pleasin'
    To reason out the reason
    For things I can't explain

    I only ever start new threads in a subset of perhaps six folders, I imagine most users behave in a similar way. My six folders are not your six folders.

    Even if it is not possible to delete folders / categories (which I doubt), it should be possible, at least, to merge them.
