Forums organization / suggestions

Josh Cryer posted a note elsewhere in here which detailed the forums structure prior to the server crash.  According to his memory, it was:

"Newmars: Meta Newmars (Other subfora removed and merged elsewhere)
Earth (Which was moved up; personally I think it's better to leave the Acheron section higher given that it gets many more posts): Same as now, except Space Politics was moved.
Acheron: Same as now
Underhill: (Not So) Free Chat, given the politics rule*, Science and Technology, Space Politics
The First Hundred: Same"


Should we make these changes?  Or what is a better hierarchy?

Re: Forums organization / suggestions

Hey jburk, I believe in that email exchange I wound up making it the way it was before. If you look at the layout it looks basically like that though we moved The First Hundred above Underhill.
