I've managed to make the Board Index page shorter, and more appealing. First I deleted The Rise and Fall of zap2346 as it was going nowhere. I also deleted Anything else interest based. I moved chatterbox and trolling into subforums under shoot the breeze. I've renamed this section the information center. I moved all the other forums below this section into one forum called town square.
So feedback. Like it? Hate it? Let me know. Either post here if you can, or if you can't post here, send me a pm.

It's good to have it slimmed down - I think a number of the categories were unnecessary. The board seems slightly smaller without a third "major" category, but it ain't that bad. I guess I'll get used to it.

One of the things in mind was making it smaller. The smaller it is, the faster it loads. Every extra catergory added about 5-10 images, and every forum added 1-2. To take care of forums, I went with the subforums, and with those subforumed, there was no need for all the categories. You don't have to scroll for a millennium to get to all the categories and it should load faster on slower connections. It's also easier to manage this way too. I don't particularly like how crowded Town Square is, but we'll all have to get used to it. I also put in these snazzy Administrator Badges. I didn't make the Administrator Badges, I just put them in. I'm not that creative.
Cheers.
