I have not heard anything from the non-NXC programmers though, so is it really a problem or a solution looking for a problem?

Maybe it isn't necessary, but I think it could help. Especially if it was a tag system, and you could sort it if you wanted to. Using tags (if possible) you as an admin wouldn't need to move out-of-place topics. They would all be in the same forum, but it could be sorted by tags to only show certain topics.

I personally don't really care if another forum or tag system gets implemented, as I read almost everything anyways. The only advantage i can see for myself, is being better able to find specific topics when I search.

Matt,

The tag system sounds great, how would it work with the sorting though? I am not sure you can do that or can you? I guess you could search for all posts with [NXC] in their subject.

Hey! Just a minute there. I still use NXT-G :). Really, it's not that big of a deal for me. I'd prefer to have a separate board for NXC, but that won't make a difference if you check for new posts using the new posts page. If you think it'd be too much work, don't worry about it.

I am not sure how, but I did think about just having it be a search thing.

I can't modify how the board works since it's hosted. What we got is what we have. The upside of it is that I never have to fix anything since that's done for me :)

Is there some place where we can notify these hosts of ours? They really should pay more attention to their guests, but I suppose that's not possible with about 1k of 'em. ...Even if there are 0.1k of hosts. ;)

Probably not as many :) Even if 1 in a 1000 chose to have a forum, that's still, umm, a lot!
