    My suggestion to the admin

    It's simple: get rid of all the sub-forums people don't visit. If you're concerned about losing content just grab some of the sub-forums you want to get rid of and turn into a main archives sub-forum. Combine that with merging or incorporating some of the sub-forums into just one, at least for some of them, and you'll make up for a cleaner forum. When people have a lot of choice, they tend to get distracted, and most people just go on about posting on the main sub-forum on top of the page anyway. You want to guide them into just enough places they can post their content so you have people contributing more in a specific way.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Actually all the sub-forums are already archives, divided into specific genres. That's why it's labeled "Featured Projects Archive ('read-only')".

    The idea was to archive old threads into the appropriate sub-forums so they can be used as reference, and for easier searching since similar topics/genres are archived in the same place. To lump all the archived threads into a single area or more generic topics would negate the whole idea of an archive.

    There are however plans in place to approach this in a much better way though as time permits.

    Jaded is so overrated. Cynicism is so last year. Misery has enough company. Dare to be happy.

    Makes sense, if it was my forum I would just put a couple of main archive directories and get 4 or 5 main categories like the therpf.com. I hope I'm not sounding like I knew it all on the post, it's just a simple suggestion, but I see you already have it all covered, that makes sense.
