Just an opinion, don't shoot me.

Not a slam, just an opinion.

This place has far too many forums. You could get away with 10-12.
Breaking down forums into interior and exterior is a little over the top.
Having been Admin/mod of several large websites I (We) learned to use the KISS rule. We had over 150 forums in one site...and it was a huge pain to moderate. People complained as well...we shrunk it way down via the KISS rule, and the site thrived.

JMO. Thanks for letting me opine.

It doesn't really sound like you called her stupid. I was just trying to make a joke

i personally like the way it's all split up, maybe harder for the mods but i think it's easier for us, that way you can know exactly where to post or look for info. just my thoughts

i personally dont think it has too many, you are the first in the 2 1/2 years or so i have been here to complain.. the interior,exterior, tranny, motor forums make it easier to find what you are looking for on that certain topic.. this site has more than doubled insize since i came on as a moderator, i think its "thriving"....thanks for your opinion..

As I said, just opinion. The two biggest things are modding so many forums, and the fact that a post in an obscure forum is likely to be completely missed by someone with an answer or useful input. Plus, some people are "scared" of what looks to be an overwhelming choice of forums. Sounds crazy, but I have had people say just that about the forums I have been involved with before. We found that deleting a forum that saw little use streamlined the site and fostered more discussion by putting the posts in a place where more could see them.
At any rate, I like this place just fine like it is. I see some of my demotivational pics were removed, unless they never made it up...just so I could know and not do it again, I'd like to know if and why they were taken off.
