this forum software just blobs every category into the same list. There is no actual categorization of the topics. I for example have no interest in any posting related to plugin development yet all the threads that ai am interested in are buried in a sea of categories that i have no interest in what so ever.
at least with PHPBB (which i agree needed to be changed) you had actual categories. you could simply click on a category you were interested in and see only topics related to that subject.
this forum is garbage. HORRIBLE. you have to wade through a see of CRAP just to get to the interesting stuff.
