I think that the board is a little too cluttered. Here are my suggestions:

Cymbals - There is no need for brand specific forums. Just have a General Cymbal forum, if someone wants to talk about a specific brand, they can start a thread.

Electronics Drums - Condense the three forums into a general Electronic Drums Forum.

Let's Have Fun - This is a useless forum. There's already a chit-chat forum.

Drum Beats - Another useless forum, this could be combined with the Lessons forum.

Drummers World - I don't see a need to make a forum just to talk about a specific drummer.

Heads/Pedals/Accessories - These could be combined into one forum. MAYBE leave a Pedals forum.

Just my $.02

Our Members can also be replaced with a simple Introduce Yourself sticky in the General Drums Discussion forum.

Vintage Drums can also go, stuff like that belongs in the General forum or Show Us Your Kit sections.

Drum Set is pretty unnecessary as well, I feel questions like that can go in the General Drum subforum.

Snare Drums can also go away, more General Drum Discussion stuff, but I guess it can stay, it depends on what the page looks like with the other subforums gone.

So, under the Drums header, that will be about 4 or 5 subforums with Timekeep's suggestions included.

If the Drummer's World forum is taken away, then my qualms about organization are taken care of seeing as the Chit-Chat forum was relatively invisible surrounded by subforums with much longer names.

There's also a relatively annoying glitch, I think it may be Firefox only, but in every topic, just under the Original Post or OP, there's an empty box, almost a ghost post.

Basically there will only be 2 headers with about 5 subforums each or so.

I think the Drum Set and Snare forums should stay simply because they are used quite a bit and combining them with General Drum Discussion would make that section too big. I think Vintage can go too.

I think that gap is an ad banner space.

I agree quite a bit with your first post, Timekeep.

Bit of a clean up and de-clutter and fewer mods with more sway to deal with people being abusive.

Perhaps a bit of a reinvent in image as well.....

I think Timekeep is really the only mod that's active and plans on being active.

He's got a new logo lined up as well, check out the thread below.

We should really get rid of two threads as well. The Sgarrett thread just needs to go and I think we should get rid of the "mods have banning powers" thread as well.
