    Honestly I'd cut down the forums to like 3. David Gray (put all the music and whatever talk here), Tours & Live (or something, for the reports), off-topic talk. Would make it easier to see at a quick glance what's new and the amount of stuff posted here isn't that much that it really requires so many subforums. Anyway, just a suggestion.. what do you guys think?

    Hello ak11, I tend to agree with you. I think things could be condensed also.

    Hey guys, and welcome back !

    Thanks for your response, will gladly reconsider the amount of forums if that helps... :cool:

    Then again, did you know it is real easy to find any new posts by using the menu item "new posts" ?

    I use that a lot, and works a bit like a feature we had on the old DGBB, except this one is slightly better :D

    Also you can watch forums that you are particularly interested in or threads, and they will show up in "watched forums" or "watched threads"

    And you can easily see in which forums there are unread items, as they have a darker color...

    Example here, where The Lyrics have got no new items, but Live Performances has...

    Does that help ?

    Take care,

    Marcel.

    yes, that did help, I did start using "new posts" just recently also and I really like that. Didn't realize about the darker color for unread items though.
    Over time it will become obvious what forums don't get much use and can be eliminated I would think, yes?
    Thank you!!
