I am still setting up my forum and just realised that I could use the prefix-system as a category-system.

Instead of having:

  • category 1
    • subforum 1
    • subforum 2
  • category 2
    • subforum 3
I could use:
  • forum 1
    • prefix 1
    • prefix 2
  • forum 2
So there would be no categories at all. That would save a page-load. But would the second system require less resources then the first system? I was thinking it might... Like in query-load maybe or in complexity of searches. Or maybe the opposite? Or it wouldn't really matter.
