I've recently been on a few other sites of other teams and noticed they have many baseball forums: other MLB games, their rival's team, the AL, the NL, Game threads, etc...

I'd like to suggest that you *not* do that. Thanks!

yeah, I like this set up just the way it is. Wouldn't add or delete any new subforums.

We're very wary of forum creep and we don't like to do it. For instance, there was a push for a movies/music forum, but I resisted it.

It seems like it would make the overall site too cumbersome. Some of the same thoughts/comments would be posted in multiple places and "conversations" would be harder to follow since one wouldn't know/remember where the last similar remark was posted.

Glad you resisted the movies/music forum. The 3-4 running threads in Social seems to suffice.

Just an indirect way of saying, thanks. I like the cleanliness and simplicity of this board.

I concur with the original post. Whenever I approach a forum I've never been to before, and there's a million sub-categories, it's very intimidating, and everybody has a [expletive] if you post in the wrong sub-category.
