Fair enough.

I'm all for downsizing. We've done so a number of times over the past year... and, I'm keen on continuing to do so.

The problem with scaling back to a large degree (And we've been there before btw) is that we end up with a large number of threads of varied topics on one page. When topics get bumped down to the bottom of the page, or page two, nobody responds to them. That's even the case right now. Can you honestly say that you go into any forum, scroll down to page two and see which threads of interest may be there?
Thats a problem for sure, the idea I have is that we would scale back and slim down. Then when activity in a forum reaches a point where we get more than 1 page of new threads per two days or something like that, then we will consider splitting it up again.

Personally I browse the board exclusively via the "new posts" button so I almost never go through the forums one by one to check whats new.

That actually brings up a new question, how do members navigate on the forum? Do they check new posts or do they go through the forums.

The problems forum is good, welcome forum I am split. Its good to have but not essential.

then that was a good move for sure.

Not sure, since I always browse through the new posts. But in general I like that kind of layout, main forum with related sub forums. But it's just my personal taste speaking, I would be curious to how the mainstream views it. There is always the risk that the subforum will be ignored and all posts end up on the main forum anyway, the other risk is that if the sub forums are their own forums then the content is spread a bit to thin without a real logical connection. I guess its some kind of optimization problem to find a good medium.

Taken to far it sure is. We need to find a good compromise between specificity and streamlining. We might be at that optimum already, hard to say.

I use it pretraining. Cardio I usually do after a cup of coffee.
