Any chance of adding a rigging section in the Gear and Maintenance forum?

Re: Rigging?

Creating subsections often ends up reducing the number of people seeing a post who might have useful input. Someone might have a question about a topic, but unless I search out that specific topic, (rigging, for example) I won't see it. If it's in a general section I will be more likely to see it. I can look at the title to determine whether I should read the post, and add a response if it makes sense. Subsections can also create "deadness". The "Racing" subsection here on Sailnet is an example. People with racing questions see that the last post in the section was three weeks ago, so figure their question won't get a quick response, and don't post on the site at all. Their question posted on a general section would likely get answered rapidly, because there is a good deal of traffic on Sailnet in general, including people who know racing.
