As suggested in another topic, I've had a bit of a tidy up of reduntant forums.
  • Jokes has been merged into Totally Off Topic
  • Congratulatorium has been merged back into its spiritual home, General Business
  • Random Acts of Kindness has been merged into General Business
  • Meets is now a sub-forum of General Business
  • General Business has been renamed Join Me to reflect its new wider remit
  • Games We Play is now a sub-forum of Totally Off-Topic
  • Pregnancy and Parenting has been merged into PN+I
  • Site News and Issues, and Previous Meets and Retired Categories should now be collapsed by default, but you can still expand them out by clicking the bar
The only one left that I can't decide on a home for is Requests. It's a fairly mixed bag of requests about how to do stuff on the forum, general requests for help, and requests for help with RAoKs, so could go in Join Me (previously known as General Business) or Totally Off Topic. Does anyone have a strong preference either way?

Possibly a sub-forum in Join Me?  They're generally one-time,  short duration requests, and mostly more "Join Me" than "Off-Topic" in content.....

The changes are good. I like Doug's idea.

I voted for join me cos it seems most sensible. Having said that i only ever view this forum by 'new posts' so i don't mind.
Joinee since October 2003!
