I agree completely. Sub-forums can really fragment discussion and make it harder to find things when some users don't notice the sub-forum and others go straight to them expecting everything on that subject to be there. I mean the boatbuilders sub-forums? How many discussions on those brands happen outside the particular sub-forum - most of them. I just don't think it works well.

Re: rename Diesel to Propulsion forum

Variant means of propulsion other than Diesel or Gasoline powered are rare and exorbitantly costly and 'not ready for prime time'.

Leave well enough alone, as such discussions of 'wishful/future variants' should remain in the 'general discussions'. Why make yet another separate category that invariably will have very very few interested readers?

Next we'll see specific sub-forums for turbo diesels, turbo diesels with chromed valve springs - only, Diesels with heat exchangers, diesels without heat exchangers, Diesels that spin 'right-handed' separately from Diesels that spin 'left handed', Atomic 4s with electronic ignition, Atomic 4s without electronic ignition, etc. etc. etc. etc. A simple 'search' can already find most of what anyone wants.

.... and worst of all, futuristic 'propulsion' variants will ultimately and inevitably be 'relocated' into the WAR ROOM because of the ever-changing and dejure 'politics' that always accompanies such 'cutting edge' discussions.


Keep it simple, keep it less complicated .... and 'undiluted'.

Re: rename Diesel to Propulsion forum

Just put it all under "General Discussion" forum so we can find it...

Rich,

I think that what Denise is suggesting is to decomplicate it by cutting out the sub-forums that already exist.

How's that work for you?
