We already have them separated. So i dont quite understand what you are getting at here?
Each have their own area of the forum for their threads. Yeah they do get intermixed at times. But it isnt that major of a problem. The Search Feature should show you where those topics are located.
The problem is that the Search Feature is very dumbed down. It just searches for that group of Letters. "LCD" in the post. So the thread could ahve nothing to do with the LCD at hand but there maybe have been a question asked in the the thread about what LCD Monitor they have cause their screen shot looked nice to someone.
There is no way for us to go through the Search Feature and distinguish every thread and sort them out by what they contain to what their title holds. That is the main problem with the many topics we have here. The Topic Title 90% of the time is either very basic or doesnt cover what the topic covers.
There isnt much more we can do from our stand point. The Search Feature isnt specific. Even going into the Advanced Search Method and using Topic Title only will give you only a percentage of what is truly out there but at least the areas are better for topics for what you are looking for.
It is a issue i have seen on every forum. People dont give a Topic Title the best name or they place it in the wrong area. Being a larger forum we see this more and it is more noticeable cause it is harder for us to just go through and rename them all and move them to the proper places.
But we do have the areas separate. We do have a place for all topics to go. If they are put there is a different story. If the topic title represents what is truly in the topic is also a different story.
We have tried this and we have tried our best to make sure that every topic has its own place. But it isnt the easiest keeping it from happening.
