The split up was my idea. There were so many topics being created in just 1 sub-forum about the new database, including important topics like technical expertise or the site funding and legal status, but also for display issues, how many mods to vote, and other less important stuff.
I wouldn't want to go back to a single sub-forum for the new dbase. However, it may be possible to change the structure here and there, perhaps decreasing the number of sub-forums a little.
Btw, what's this doing in the discogs-forum, don't think it has anything to do with discogs.
