Looking over the ADABio forums (DIY Farmer folk from France http://forum.adabio-autoconstruction.org/) I got to thinking about our forum structure. The structure is very focused on what Farm Hack does: develop tools, host events, and the General category which acts as a place to route people into tools or events. There has been discussion of other forum structures and such but it's been hard to conceptualize how to structure content before it exists.
How about we consolidate all of the forums under "General" into a forum called "Everything and Anything" or "Farm Hack Talk" or ... who knows. Suggestions? Something that invites people to post content without having to think too hard as to where they should post it. It's not hard for people to move their own topic (or an admin) to another forum if needed. This also simplifies email subscriptions immensely. Instead of subscribing to a bunch of forums, there is just one and we're all in it together. The tool and event forums would still be separate, but I think that makes sense because people will want to be more selective about those things. A sign up for a weekly Tool activity digest might be a good way to keep one's eye on new tools and other tool activity that might end up being of interest.
