Lightbulb Forum Layout

Just posted this in the "Rave On" section, then saw there was a proper "Site Stuff" board. Feel free to combine the threads, not sure which will get noticed best where. My previous post:

I know I'm a newer member here, but of all the forums I've been a part of over the years, this one is among the more confusing/counter-intuitive in terms of rooms and layout.

1. Why is the SV650 Discussion board not under "General SV Stuff" alongside the SV1000 Discussion board?

2. Why are "Bike and Aftermarket Supplier Reviews" and "Home Page News", which is admin-only, under "General SV Stuff" and not in the Off Topic section?

3. Why are there separate video threads in both the General SV Stuff and Off Topic sections?

4. Is it possible to create an "SV Resources" board where all the current stickies can be moved/consolidated? As a new, but frequent forum user, I find it a bit ridiculous that you have to scroll down so far in the more popular sections just to get to recent posts.

Originally, this was pretty exclusively an SV1000 forum. The S-wee folks had their own sites.

If that's the justification, then why have an SV650 section at all?

IF you're going to have an "SV650 Discussion" board, it should be in the same "General" area as the "SV1000 Discussion", so people can find it. Putting it at the bottom doesn't make any sense.

Not only that, but the "Bike and Aftermarket Supplier Reviews" and "Home Page News" boards appear in the "General SV Stuff" section, where they don't really have any business being. Just makes the forum harder to navigate. I don't know...maybe I've been spoiled by all my other bike forums

The S-wee stuff was all an afterthought, and came along well after the site had been established.

This site has seen more than it's share of changes over the years....mostly for the worse if you ask me. The latest iteration when it got bought brought about the most and worst alterations from the original. It really used to be pretty well organized.

I have the "Active Topics" section set as my SV Portal home page. This is where you'll find the most recent posts.
