I don't much like "Other Photographic Genres."  That widens the category to cover too much.  I suggest two things:

1) making a few stickies for long threads (like subcategories) on cars or trees or barns or nudes or whatever
2) making a new forum category about street photography

If I had to say what specific type of photography has been most popular at LuLa, it would be landscape.  Second most popular would be street photography.  We should focus on a genre of photography that clearly has a substantial talent and mindshare (including Michael's) here at LuLa. I think that is street photography. If I had a nickel for every time that Bresson was reverently mentioned I would be rich.  On the other hand quoting Ansel Adams is almost dismissed as cliche.

I think "other photographic genres" will work well so long as you leave it up to the members to start specified topic posts. Too many sub-forums drives down traffic and makes things needlessly complicated. On the Landscape side, this has already happened with the cars/clouds threads. Let us start threads of similar nature in the new forum Subtopic in the same manner and it will work well IMO.

If anything, the board needs consolidation, pruning, not expansion. That does not mean there wouldn't be a place for "other photographic genres" in a consolidated forum, however.

I tend to agree - however there is no elegant way of consolidating fora. (eg Combocams with Motion & Video)

Short of moving every single darn topic within a forum, deletion appears to be the only way - I am not doing either at this point - which is why you have not seen any change.

I'll chat with Mark Guertin & Michael about it.
