So let it be written; so let it be done.

I'll try to make the change tomorrow morning, after the backup. The last time we did a major forum reorganization, the forum navigation tree somehow got completely messed up, so I want to be careful this time.

Sorry guys, I got badly sidetracked yesterday and I wasn't able to really do anything here at all, much less reorganize the forums.

Anyway, I just took care of it a few minutes ago, with one minor imperial alteration: I changed the category name "Science Fiction and Fantasy" to "Fiction". It just seemed to make more sense to have "Fiction" and "Non-Fiction" categories, instead of "Science Fiction and Fantasy" and "Non-Fiction".

PS. While I was doing it, I noticed that it's possible to create an icon for each forum. I wonder if that's something we might want to do. It might look cool (unless I try to do it myself, since I have approximately zero artistic ability).

I can try making some forum icons.

What are the specifications of the forum icons in pixels. Is transparency allowed? Alpha Channel Transparency?

The transition was so smooth and natural, I didn't even notice it until I checked the "new posts" here.
Excellent! :D
Something about Libertarianism always bothered me. Then one day, I realized what it was:
Libertarian philosophy can be boiled down to the phrase, "Work Will Make You Free."


In Libertarianism, there is no Government, so the Bosses are free to exploit the Workers.
In Communism, there is no Government, so the Workers are free to exploit the Bosses.
So in Libertarianism, man exploits man, but in Communism, its the other way around!

Indeed. I think commendation to the staff for a smoothly-done upgrade would very much be in order.
