I've always been resistant to creating more sub-sections on the board. Perhaps this suits my own sprawling ADD tendencies, and my resistance to change. The sections that do exist were hard-fought for by various members. I guess one of the things I worry about is giving people anxiety when, inevitably, topics might bridge several possible forums. It can go on forever. I fear as well topics being lost in the shuffle even more than they are.
Now, belatedly, I am reconsidering this a bit, and with no particular pressure or input from anyone.
I wonder, for example, whether there should be distinct sections for the most popular cutting systems: Neumann, Scully, Presto, and Souri's vinyl recorder. (The latter could be expanded to include the other current systems that are developed to the degree of being sold.) . This might decrease search times, and might reduce topic redundancy.
Another reason NOT to would be the need to retroactively reorganize the board for these systems. It could take a long time.
If anyone knows of well-organized boards that do things this way, that I might use as a template, please feel free to link to them in this thread.
