Any thoughts on altering the Graphics Category to Graphics and Multimedia and adding a "Multimedia" forum?

A lot of designers are utilizing multimedia technologies in websites. My thought is for an initially generic multimedia forum which could include topics and discussions on things like embedded video such as WMV, QuickTime, Silverlight, FLV, and multimedia programs such as Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premier Pro (or even the entire production suite), and other multimedia authoring programs like HyperGASP, Live Stage, Macromedia Director and others.

Definitely.

Wouldn't FLV come under the flash forum though?

Yes and no. While some topics for FLV should be reserved for a flash forum, One has to create the FLV to begin with. This means, typically, the developer is using some multimedia creation application, such as Quicktime Pro, or Windows Movie Maker, etc to create an original video, which then has to be converted to an FLV, which involves conversion tools/programs such as Flash Video Encoder, Sorenson, etc. There are also often codec related problems and questions, as well as resolution and stream issues that don't always fall neatly into a Flash forum per se.

I just think we are missing a large audience by not providing an outlet for multimedia issues.

Thanks boss. I'll take a little time this week and dig up some old multimedia topics that probably should be in there and move them.

The multimedia forum does not appear in the side bar.
