I'm sure the intent is positive but at some point you end up hiding good content by creating too many sub-forums.
 
 The strategy forum has had only a few new topics in the last 24 hours and yet a new strategy sub-forum was created today.  I don't think there was too much traffic in the strategy forum and I don't think the people going there dislike the Dr. Terror threads being there. AFAIK these are the two main reasons you create new sub-forums (people in general don't like to see bug reports and task force recruitment so you make separate forums for those even if there aren't many bug reports; general was being overwhelmed with 'what statue should i keep' threads so move all those to statue forum, etc.).
 
 There's also plenty of "strategy" talk in the general forum, the other strategy sub-forum, the veteran's quarters, etc.  It gets to be a burden to click on all of these mostly dead sub-forums in order to see if anything interesting has been posted in the last X days/hours. What I do and what I'd guess many people do is they bookmark the general forum and occasionally go and click on the other ones but not as much as they'd actually like to.  
 
 It's a shame there isn't an "everything" forum that displays all posts and actually uses the tagging and some buttons to allow you to show/hide various sub-forum content.

Agreed. I have General Tab saved on my iPad, iPhone and Computer.
 
 I have to click out to see other subs.
 
 Too much time looking for nothing now.
 
 10,000 posts spread over 10,000 sections.
 
 Snooze!
 

 
 
 PS: If I cant find this Thread later I'll assume it got moved to the Steko sub-forum.

Add this URL to your bookmark for What's New (latest 24H) in Boom Beach forum:

The intent is to keep all related topics in sections that is easy for NEW people to look for help with an area. If there is a section for Dr. Terror, people will go there for all related information. This gives an opportunity for great info threads to be stickied in that area, where they shouldn't be stickied in general.
 
 I hope that makes sense.

Yes, as the topic is regarding the forum and not directly relating to Boom. I had been slacking on moving threads into their proper section, and am now cracking down on it. It may be weird right now, but long term it's for the best.
