I do, personally, I'd much rather have fewer, busier sections. too much choice isn't always better :)

I will do some work on it now.

When the forum started it seemed a good idea to have seperate sections to help with posting,now we are busy it seems to of backfired.

I like choice but there a lot on this forum, I think the main page needs to be partitioned with say, horizontal bars, which would zone various topics. In other words, something likes this:

General Section:
Questions, Questions, Questions!
Queen Rearing

Health Topics:
Pest & Diseases
Pesticides & Environmental, Political
Honey Questions

Beehives
Beehive Types
DIY Construction, Plans & Tools
Stolen Hives

Education
Mentoring Offered
Mentoring Wanted
Books & Media

Off Topic Chat
Smallholding
Forum Related Feedback

Well you can see the idea, each section that is in bold is a highlighted bar or some such.

WOW is this the same forum in only 10 mins work?

Minor point but should the Adult section be still right up at the top in the main beekeeping section?

I have no objections, its the only reason I come to this forum!:svengo:

Briliant! Well done, it makes it easier for us to post, and hence a knock on effect on your 'house keeping'!!
