    I think the current forum structure (heavy subforums) may be organize but is definitely broken. I noticed that participation on subforums are way lesser and most already dead? Why do you guys do this?

    Some sub forums are more active than others, and not all threads are in a sub forum.

    No, it's not broken. The structure is constantly evolving, transparent to the users, as sections are phased out, threads are moved and redirected, and new sections are brought in.

    Basically our new users never make it far enough in the fourms and only post on the main ones

    and our old users rarely post because of our new users

    What I'm really saying is, I don't think the complex structure is really working out. Complexity leads to lower posting and eventually drive away the community. iPod Touch Fans totally use to be my favorite.

    Complexity has nothing to do with lower posting. There are periods of higher and lower activity based on developments in the jailbreak community and broader iOS community.

    Basically when i new idevice or software comes out expect a flood of people posting in random fourms with lower numbers in subfourms
