    Subforums in forums.

    Can all the names of the subforums of a 'products' forum be prefixed with something to indicate which forum it is a subforum of.

    e.g.

    Fusion Brain has subforums, one of which is software, can that (and all Fusion Brain subforums) be prefixed with FB, ie FB Software.


    The reason I ask, is when you view the posts from New Posts all you see is the title and the subforums name. And I continually start to reply to a post and then realise it is in a fourm to which my answer will not apply.


    Cheers

    Okay, let's see what that would look like:

    Hardware has 3 subforums. How about:

    Hardware - User Innovations
    Hardware - Bluetooth Hardware
    Hardware - Fusion Brain
    Hardware - FB - Sensors
    Hardware - FB - Skins
    Hardware - FB - Outputs
    Hardware - FB - Documentation and Tutorials

    You mean like that? Or a little less detailed like this:

    User Innovations
    Bluetooth hardware
    Fusion Brain
    FB - Sensors
    FB - Skins
    FB - Outputs
    FB - Documentation and Tutorials

    I think the second version is cleaner and more consistent with other forums with sub forums like RoadRunner.

    I looked at the other forums/subforums and there are a few that wouldn't make sense to do it this same way but I don't think they present confusion when topics are posted in them. As long as we can come up with a way to do a decent abbreviation for future products, I think we'll be okay.

    So what would be best to do, for making these changes? Should we be going back and renaming the sub-forums with the abbreviations?

    I think that's the consensus.
