Some suggestins for consideration.

It would help me find things if the networking section were divided insection like the distro section - perhaps apache, samba, internet, ftp to help find pervious solutions to my problem & save a post.

I like the idea of a programming area - I am (re)learning programming with perl right now.

I am experimenting with wine, and it again would be helpful if all windows related items vmware, win4lin, wine, etc were in one place.

Comments?

The way things are posted, it is very rare that a problem is only down to one application. You can't access your website from the internet. is that apache's fault? iptables? network? dns?

generally subdivision just increases the number of double posts and such, and won't increaase the volume of knowledge present within the site as a whole.

Yes. Subdividing just keeps confusing more and more people. The present format of LQ is fine and is perfectly balanced. Adding one more will just tilt that balance and make the place more frustrating for newcomers and THAT will keep the moderators busy.

also the more heirarchical it gets the hard it is to find the forums. to be honest i had totally forgotten we had a dedicated slackware - installation forum!
