I'm starting a mountain biking forum and I can think of a lot of forum topics (regional forums, forums for different manufactures, different bike types or riding styles, accessories... the list goes on).
I was just wanting to get some opinions from some that have more experience about whether it's better to have a forum for everything or try to keep it simpler and have just a few. I've even thought about having just one forum so the home page just has threads on it. I probably wont go that route though. What's got me thinking is it seems like on the forums I visit the "General" category is always one of the most popular so I'm wondering if people don't really like to have to pick a forum to post in and would rather there be fewer choices.
I realize this is subjective and there's no one size fits all here. Just wanting to know what other people are seeing.
