    Time to split HTML & CSS into two subforums

    Hi,

    Just have a look at the enormous numbers of threads and messages in the forum HTML & CSS, and wonder with me whether it is time to split it in two subforums.

    Anyone from the management?

    Uh... what? There are 15 active threads for today. Am I missing something?

    Exactly. Much, much more than any other forum. Which makes that if you don't check every day you're bound to miss interesting discussions.

    This isn't right. Javascript is the busiest forum by far, not even including their subforums. PHP comes next, although its been quieter the past week or so, then the HTML/CSS forum.

    CSS and HTML go hand in hand nowadays. HTML is distinct, but CSS is completely invalidated without the context of HTML to go with it. Since any reply to CSS would then include "can you show the HTML or provide a link" anyways, there isn't really any need to separate the HTML and CSS forums into two distinct ones. One I'd like to see happen is the removal of the ruby form and integrated as a subforum to other server side languages. I'd also like to see ASP end up in there, and ASP.NET moved and implemented as a subforum group with VB and C# against a new parent forum of .NET under computer programming. I don't actually expect that either will occur, at least not for now. Ruby is an easy move, but .NET would be difficult to set up without a straight archiving of the old posts.

    You can just close the old forum and let it be as is, and open a new one, just as it has been done with the project marketplace section.

    Completely agree. I'd also add that a good number of posters in the forum have a site that "doesn't look right" but don't know whether their problem is related to html or css (or both...). I think the forum would become less useful for those posting for help if it were split.
