@Meckell: I would be glad to expand on this idea. Take all the topics from all the boards in the entire community and list them alphabetically and by point of origin, ie, water cooler, pro tips, etc. Next to each topic provide a one click link to whatever topic is desired.
This will: A) Streamline the process of participation, and make searches simple. B) Promote a greater sense of community. C) Save time for the Moderators as it lightens the burden of having to organize all the redundant or misplaced discussions.
