Please add a group for Editors like Xemacs, VIM, etc.

It would be nice to have a forum group for all of the varies

I have be using Xemacs for years and still do not have it configured
the way I really want it. I have been unable to find a forum group
that can help with simple issues.

There are posting under the OSs
but it would be nice if these could be all in one place.

Whilst it's a reasonable request, if we splintered things off to this level there would be hundreds of subforums and it'd just be a mess. In terms of these heirachies you may have noticed an increasing shift away from such rigid structures online. wiki's largely have next to no structure at all, just the articles themselves for example. You will not get a better answer to a question just because there's a special subforum here for it, in fact if anything you'd be more likely to get a worse one to to potentially reduced traffic based on how many people navigate the site. A text editor is software, so would be generally best off in the Linux - Software forum, although would often be equally at home in Linux - General and Linux - Newbie depending on the issues at hand. Thanks for the suggestion though.
