that's a good idea I suppose but just get rid of all the forums and have one page that shows recent posts like you say.

I always go straight to the "Recent Posts" page to see what is currently active, so the number of forums doesn't have any impact on my usage of the site.
yep, having too many subforums is the death knell of many past forums . . . it is an illusion that makes the forums look dead, which you don't want. Just something for the owners of this to think of . . .

I clicked the link and it scared me.
I think a lot of the sections have potential to be use, but many can be combined so that there is less confusion on where to place your topics.
AboveTopSecret.com is the Internet's largest and most popular discussion board community dedicated to the intelligent exchange of ideas and debate on a wide range of "alternative topics" such as conspiracies, UFO's, paranormal, secret societies, political scandals, new world order, terrorism, and dozens of related topics on current events, politics, and government wrong-doing with poignant commentary from a diverse mix of users from all over the world.
With 309,685 members generating 19,258,665 posts of substance (minimal contributions are not allowed) that cover 1,054,473 topics in 170 different discussion forums, you could say "the truth is in here."
And new content, new ideas, new speculation, and new theories are being generating at an astounding pace with 1,813 members creating 22,525 new posts during the past seven days. Also, in that same time span, we welcomed 208 new members and enjoyed visits from 4,716 registered members as well as 556,488 guests.

Very true. In the last couple years we added two forums specifically because of popular demand - Automotive Discussion and Pets - neither of which are among the most heavily used forums, but we responded to member requests and people were happy.
