So what about Menards? When they make a new product announcement about a structure, shouldn't that thread be moved to the scenery and structures forum? Will those posts be deleted in the furure? Or should Menards have their own forum like the other manufacturers? There are lots of other cases of gray area overlap too.
Menards is a Forum Sponsor, and they can post their information wherever they see fit!
IMO, the way to go is to reduce the number of forum categories and sub categories. Judging from the number of topics in each, it's obvious we like to congregate on the hi rail / traditional forum. But with all the moving and soon to be deleting, there's not much that can be discussed there. And much of what is posted there should arguably go in one of the other forum sections. Is there something that's driving all the different forum categories? Or is it merely self inflicted?
Maybe, just maybe, if the poster would read and comprehend what the sub forum is REALLY all about, they could then select the "correct" forum. As was previously stated by Alan, way too many folks were posting totally unrelated posts to the 3RS (3-Rail SCALE) Forum, obviously without actually reading what the 3RS Forum is all about.
