Yet you completely ignore the sports threads in the Clubs & Crews. Why do we need a subforum for it? We're not a community of sport nuts, we're a community of gamers, hence why we have a VG forum.Read these:
I'm not saying that there are video games and sport - never the twain shall meet. Far from it, since I'm a gamer, who plays cricket, enjoys working out and generally tries to stay in shape.
BBS should be organized like this:
You seem incapable of accepting our arguments that we don't need a sports forum. People might want one, but there's not enough demand.
Rather than going through Clubs/Crews, crawling the list of Furry/Anime Fanclubs, and locating an interest, New Signups would have an option to go straight into the sports/nutrition subforum if that is what sparks the keenest interest.
If you have a keen interest in it, generally, you are expected to use the search bar, to find a thread that you're looking for. We lock threads discussing various topics and link them to a relevant thread elsewhere on the boards from General, as moderators. The difference would be tat we redirect people to threads in Sports / Nutrition, rather than C&C.
It makes more sense to organize the community on a broader scale with the interests divided according to the skill set required.
I disagree - we have plenty of threads dedicated to the various sports, but we don't need an additional forum to discuss it in. Keep it to the threads in C&C and the occasional General one and the people still come.

Yes, but there is such a thing as over-simplifying. Then you end up with things like sub forums for MLP.
The sports threads made in general are largely replied to because they are of cultural significance. I'd say that's a generated interest, definitely not a keen understanding of sport.
Again, I disagree - some of the posters act like douches on there, regarding saying that Rugby is shit and they would rather play American Football, because they are either overweight, or too much of a wimp to play a proper game, for example. We as mature members can work around them.
A sports/fitness/nutrition sub-forum would be geared towards users who actually want to discuss athletic news, interests, activities, schedules, workouts, professional sports... and the list goes on.
But this is exactly what the threads dedicated to the various sports, fitness and nutritional ideals can accomplish.
In summary, the admins still have a lot of bugs to catch up on, the last thing that they need to do is program in a new forum. The system that we have works and if they decide that we need one at some stage later, the changes will be focused on at that stage. In the meantime, learn to use the search bar.
