more forum merging
We still have some rather thin forums with not a lot of activity so I'm thinking more merges could do good. I suppose it just wasn't such a good idea to start with many forums in the very beginning of the site (even when it was phpbb powered). When it's new it has to have only very few forums despite the topics it covers, and then expand from there.
So the idea is to merge all distro sections into "GNU/Linux distro help forum" or something similarly named.
There would be no more distinctions between Debian based, Slackware based, RPM based, source based etc. We usually just ask people asking for help which distro they're using anyway.
Most other sites make a forum for every distro specifically, ending up in a big number of forums. Smaller sites just end up having these forums barely filled while big sites are, well, big. We're nothing like that and this step might in fact be a positive differentiating step. As mentioned by AndrewB earlier, he rarely even goes to forum index. And the forum topics can be opened by just click on that orange button on homepage where choosing a forum is like choosing a category for post to fit in.
Some other merges could be done as well, perhaps.
What do you think?
