I don't understand what you mean by a "totally separate board". All of the boards must come off the main board.
Creating a "new Vb
" board would require a separate URL and that would make it even more obscure.
With the boards "collapsed" on the main forum page makes it easier for users to find it without having to scroll down so far.
Personally I would love to see the board listings in horizontal format instead of vertical but that is not possible with our "style" program.
It is better than it used to be and actually very similar to "another board's" format.
