No problems getting the reorganization done. Nothing has been deleted so far, so we can still restore any of the old forums. Eventually I will copy as much of the old content to the new condensed forums as I can so we preserve as much of the knowledge base as possible. For now though, that stuff will remain hidden.

I'd take out 'potting' and just have soil on that forum since it covers more. Compost, soil, and mulch. People can still talk about potting soil, but it would cover a broader area.

And what about the social forum for OT discussions?

Pets and wildlife could be separate, since some wildlife eats pets. :wink: Seriously, they just don't seem to mesh well.

Add annuals to perennials, since they cohabitate in gardens.

That's all for now. I do like the shorter list.

That's great! Love the compressed forum - less scrolling. :)

Thanks for the suggestions Luv. They sound good to me.

I appreciate all of your feedback, even if it is just a "good job." :) Like I said, we really just want to make the forum work best for the users.

It would be nice to have a General Photography Section inside the Step Beyond the Garden area. I can certainly post some of the things I do in the pets, wildlife, or happy hour, but it would seem out of place.

Not sure where something like this would go if not.

Thanks!

Sorry for the long delay Randy, I just got back from a vacation in Mexico, where the internet access was a bit flaky to be changing the board settings.

A general photography section is good idea. :)

There aught to be an 'exhanges' forum.

Also I think 'clematis' is a little narrow. Perhaps 'vines and climbers' would be better?

A place to post tradelists, seed offers, and round robins, ect. I guess it works to post such things in the forum related to the material up for trade too.

Clematis is one of the most popular and talked about vines so people might come here looking for just that, so maybe just say "clematis and other vines would suffice. Just a thought.
