It was once subcategorized like mad, but was, on the whole, unnecessary and confusing.

Let's call a spade a spade, even if it's in someone elses hand.

katana, whatcha got ?

That might be a tad confusing to you guys, but it'll make sense eventually.

If I'm reading the suggestion correctly, it would be to implement the subcategories MOD that is currently available and is being devveloped to be included in Olympus.

For example:

You have the Webdesign forum as a generic "catch-all" forum. Within the webdesign forum would be several sub-categories/forums, e.g. HTML, XHTML,XML,,CSS,XSL,DHTML

I don't want to speak for Bigweb on whether he's ever really thought about doing it. I do know he's quite aware that it's available. My personal though is he trends towards keeping things on the simple side, i.e. more generic catch-all forums. And trust me, I frequent area51 at phpbb and the subcategories there drive me nuts as do those that use them on vB boards where you see it a common practice.

Oversubcategorization is not good for the health of most forums. Most forums improve themselves when categories are combined, not split apart. I think Ozzu is at a sweet spot right now.

Well, I think it might help those new people who are lost. Infact, recently I've seen A LOT of threads being posted in the wrong forums, and some reading something like "Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this in, guys. Please move it if it is".

Not only that, but it might also help us further understand a post that is confusing, if at least we know what sub-category it is under, so we know what they are slightly refering to.


... then again, for people who have never heard of those programming languages or categories/topics before, might get confused as too where they would post their thread. And some might not even know what programming language or categories/topics their post refers too.


I myself am a little confused as too whether this will actually help Ozzu (and it's members) much at all. It's all up to BWM :P

it really depends. i think if like the programming section was divided up by language it would be a great help. but im not sure about the others.
