Default Lounge sections

The ever expanding forum is getting alot of threads. I think the lounge needs some categories due to the fact that when i get on there theres all these new posts. Some ideas i have for categories are Events (crashes, breakdowns, fixes, etc), Help (Problems going on in life, family problems), and then just the off topic lounge itself. More ideas for categories are appreciated

LOUNGE: For casual talk about things unrelated to General Motors. In other words, off-topic stuff. And anything else that does not fit Section Description.

For me, it'* easy to have one place to unload and not worry about if my post fits this category or that one.

Too many sub-threads and folders tends to get things lost. Like Reuben mentioned, it'* just nice to open the door and toss the stuff in the room, rather than looking for a cupboard or drawer.

The more layers there are the harder it is to find things, and that will actually hurt things. Although we appreciate the idea, things are divided up rather nicely here.

Definitely a No on this one. With expanding to include all GM, we have greatly increased our index page to accommodate. And I need to further that with a couple "have to do'*" like getting Tech Info out of "Bonneville". Thats going to create a larger footprint itself as the subfolders of it will list in the open when It becomes its own Section. Size of Index and resulting page load time effects our ranking with the searchbots. They bring us new members from searchengine hits . Any expansions from here on in will be saved for critical needs.
