About your "Books" category, again I really have to say how slow and difficult it makes it to split pteridology up under many small categories - this now makes no less than 13 places I have to look to find the different posts. Yet I'd guess that nearly all who read the forum will just want to see ALL the posts in chronological order, avoiding all these micro-categories!
This is particularly difficult when, as today the server for the site is very slow - for reasons I suppose one cannot know.
I wonder, if others agree (given that there are relatively few postings under each category) and want to see all posts, if you could consider removing these rather trifling and a bit artificial categories and posting up all messages in chronological order as they come - no more categories - it would make it so much easier to see everything and would make it on a par with the UK-ferns forum, which it could thus replace.
I doubt if many people are so narrow in their fern-interests that they only seek one or two of these minor sub-categories?
