Feedback from Spanky, a strictly flat structure is not possible. Dont think a user selectable list of different structure viewing options are either.

Sorry Guin, but the best answer I can give you is something along the lines of the current structure took a lot of work, and its not possible. That was the reason given, barely over that many words.
Not sure if I am having un-fair expectations on developers who are volunteers... in fact... not sure how I feel about a few things right now.

I can see that. But what about getting too many things accumulated under one topic? As an example viewforum.php?f=3 currently has 26 pages of topics.... part of what drives me nuts about the current layout is the "too many pockets" effect. if i have 3 pockets in my clothes, they fill up with stuff, but i can find what i'm looking for pretty quickly. if i have a dozen or more, i get frustrated trying to find something that i had just put in them.

Useful threads are worth keeping nad threads about the philosopical yeas and neays of children (for instance) are issues that are gonna keep coming up again, so we may want to keep the old discussions and build on them. Maybe trying to prune to a pre-set number of topic pages (4 perhaps) would mean that we get rid of enough dead wood without killing the tree.

the "Q & A, Tips and Tricks" topic area is getting pretty crowded with more specific techie topics alongside the newbie posts. When there was a top-most newbie area, and a separate structures & camping tech area, it seemed to make more sense.
