This is a bit of an abstract suggestion (as in, I don't really know how to make it better, but I know there's a better way out there). Often times, as forums grow larger, they add more forums. Many admins utilize subforums as a way of keeping their index orderly, but this can cause their site to grow into a confusing labrinyth in order to find the content. Others keep everything at top level, and their index stretches down for miles. There has to be some way to handle this elegantly, right? A couple possible ideas I was playing with were favourite forums (so users can mark the forums they care about to show up top), tabbed navigation (so only one category is displayed at a time), sub-categories (showing nested forums on the index, but collapsible), and even forums of forums (the subforums are listed as threads within a 'category' forum). This is not really a suggestions thread for any of them in particular, but more of a call for people who know more about creating forums than I do to think about adding something.
