    Default Too Many Forums

    I recently joined this forum and I find myself frustrated with the organization of topics - the conversations are thinly spread over too many forums, an incredible 51 forums to be exact! It's like buying a newspaper with 200 6"x 4" pages and trying to find articles of interest to read. If you want examples of better organization I suggest to look at home-barista.com or even coffeegeek.com . They have fewer forums and as such are easier to peruse. The question to ask is, what are the natural groupings of conversations? For example, as a Profitec 700 owner, most discussions on dual boiler E61 machines are likely relevant to my machine... assuming I only ever wanted to read/chat about my equipment (which isn't the case). Breaking out discussions by manufacturer might work for cars, but for coffee equipment it just doesn't make a lot of sense. For example, E61 HX machines have just too much in common to fragment discussions by brand. Please consider collapsing the forums down to perhaps a dozen areas and allow the conversations to flow. Any BTW...

    Hello everyone! :-)

    Hi and welcome to the forum.
    This is the first coffee forum I have ever joined but seen many for other areas cars, motorbikes etc. I find it generally easy to navigate and the people are pretty good on here to!

    I personally find it better there are areas for brand of machine or grinder as not all are the same really. I have had some great replies in brand specific area to for my machine.
    Thanks

    Welcome.

    I find it easiest to catch up on what's going on via the "New posts" function.

    Welcome to our friendly forum, guess we would be doing just you a favour as most folk are quite happy with the way this forum is laid out, the search engine is perfectly adequate to find most things and as probably the busiest coffee forums out there we most be doing something right

    I find other forums frustrating for different reasons and really enjoy using and participating on this one, embrace it and enjoy!
