A flat Forum-Structure allows to switch directly to all given Fora but it's less comfortable for Selection due to the Entries are not that clearly grouped like by SubFora and IMO Forum-Users have seldom totally broad spreaded Interests. Let's define few typical Forum-Users: Regular Players which are concerned about playing the Game, Players which are also Content-Developers (eg Maps) and Game-Developers. All three share their Interest to refer to the HP at least to report Bugs&Problems with the Site resp the HP as H for all that Type of Users concerns to all that Type of Users (InterSectionSet).

HP,User,Content-Developer, Game-Developer are the 4 Sections resp Super-Fora I can identify.

a Matter I don't understand is that there exist Player-Fora for 4 different Languages (excellent), eg. "[English] ]PlayerForum" but anyway there exist also a Forum "Playing WideLands" and I wonder what different Meanings they may have. So I suggest to merge them and move those PlayerFora into an own Super-Forum "Player Forum".

So I get 4 Top-Fora which look to me rather tidy:

[HomePage Forum] -- Issues about Using the WebSite [Player Forum] -- Issues about playing WideLands [Content Developer Forum] -- Issues about Content Development [Game Developer Forum] -- Issues about Game Development (eg. Suggestions)
