    I have been wanting to say something about this, and I figure now is a good time. There are too many diffrent forums. Please consider eliminating, or combining a few of them. For example, combine the Studio Manufacturer and Wholesale Vendor Feedback forums into one single forum. Each of these usually has less than 15 topics when I go into them. There are a few others that could be eliminated. Also, consider making the forum descriptions a bit shorter. You do not have to include an example of every possible type of thread in the forum description. I used to do that at my forum, and since I have shortened them, more people tend to read them, and less topics get posted in the wrong area. Just a few suggestions.

    Believe me the forum descriptions are the way they are because without them members will post something that we don't allow and then use those descriptions to refer to when we get on them about posting in the wrong areas, etc.
    The forums will stay as they are too.
    Thanks for the suggestions though.

    What happens if you have a post and It needs the experience of a number of different sections of the HTF.
    ie a post about upcoming sound formats should maybe include software and hardware guys?

    8 years? HTF has been around that long? The web hasn't been around that long, has it? Did I hear something about HTF starting out on Delphi, I was a member on there back in '93 for a few months. Never discovered HTF though. [​IMG]
