Sorry if this has already been brought up. I know this won't be implemented as I'm sure it would cause headaches for admins and I suppose isn't the way the admins want these forums to go based on how it currently is, but does anyone else feel like there are too many forums?
I made a post in a Surface Pro thread that I accessed through the front page trending section yesterday. Today I went to find that thread again and had a hard time, I started scrolling down the forum topics I saw the Gadgets board and thought it might be in there, nope. Next was Windows Phone and Windows mobile, I had a doubt with this one but checked anyway, nope. Then I saw Microsoft Windows, but figured it wouldn't be there as that is under the Operating System header plus I saw the Laptops and Mobile Computers section almost at the same time, so I went there first, nope. It was actually in the Microsoft Windows topic which I discovered after checking my profiles posting history. To me, this sort of confusion draws from there being too many boards with intersecting topics. I didn't know where to look for it and perhaps the original poster didn't know where to post it.
I just quickly edited the forum index page to show how it could be, this wasn't really given too much thought and I'm sure there are some oversights.
I think that there would need to be a slight behaviour change in terms of posting as well if something like this were to ever be done. Just thought I'd put the idea out there.
