I dunno. The Cafe already has so many categories that wading through even more of them would be kind of arduous. I'll vote to keep it the way it is unless some future upgrade supports the "sub-forums" feature to clean up the look of the main index.

Would it be possible for reviewers to post a simple link to the review under the appropriate subject area?

David: I agree with Flip. There are alot of forums already and rather than add a maintenance type of forum, here's suggestion. It works for me.

If one time, you actually visited all the forums and read the recent postings, you'd see if anything was relevant to you. Then each day or however often you visit, just scan down the right side of the forum and look for new postings since the day you did your initial viewing. The only forum I see that might be overwhelming for you might be the new arrivals as they update all the time.

Also, if your coffee cups are working properly, you can eliminate the white coffed cup forums as nothing new has arrived since you last looked. I use the scanning method ony because my browser is IE and there are some problems with that effecting the coffee cups. Just an idea to think about.

Thank you all for your replies (and for Dave's suggestion what to do in the meanwhile). I think most of you would agree that the problem with my suggestion is a TECHNICAL problem. I can't see that a PROPERLY DESIGNED version of my suggestion would add work/complexity for the users of The Cafe, quite the opposite. But yes, given the current technical parameters and resources, new categories might add SOME complexity for SOME users. Personally I still favor the proposal.

The Cafe is the greatest place on the Internet and I just want to make it greater!

I understand where your coming from, I really do. But even if we had a 'review' area for each forum, there would still be tons of reviews posted in the wrong places each day...more work for us, and we have our hands full now. Smile

In addition to 'The good, the bad, and the garbage' forum, I will be adding a 'new' review forum in the near future. Though members will not be posting there, it will be official reviews from the Cafe! Smile

Steve, just thinking about the logistics of maintaining this place makes me giddy. Thanks for taking the time to answer my proposal, and I look forward to the forthcoming ”official” review section.
