i have a few SL forum format suggestions that will streamline the forums:

1. Remove the announcements forum.
Instead, pin new anouncements in "Forum Announcements and Suggestions" forum for a month, and then desticky it.

2. Rename "Third Party Packages and Software " to
"Third Party Packages". As currently titled, the software part overlaps with "Software and applications", and is confusing.

3. Move "Third Party Packages" to as a *subforum* of "Software and applications".

4. Move "How-to's / manuals / instructional manuals" forum to under "General".
and remove "Technical" category. Isnt "Support" technically "Technical"?

5. Currently forums have a weird format. Take "Software and applications" for instance.
First there is Announcements (makes sense)
Second there is Important topics containing only a "welcome" post (this should be merged with announcements)
Third is Forum Topics (OK)
Fourth is Important topics again (????)
Fifth is Forum topics yet again (?????????????????????????????????????????????????)

I disagree, none of the suggested changes seem to improve anything, on the contrary IMHO they would make the forum less organised. I would keep things as they are, as they are just fine as they are.

Suggestions are of course always welcome.
But there are different opinions so no go here.

I agree with this, everything looks a bit weird when you come to think of it.
