We're moving several forums around right now for a couple of reasons:

1. The ECF front page was becoming 'the page that never ends', and something had to be done to fix it.
2. We have a whole new template coming very soon, and we want it to run fast from Day 1 - so some pruning needed doing.

No forums have been removed - but several have moved to another section, or become sub-forums instead of top-level boards.

For example, Rules and Announcements have moved out of their own section down to just above the New Members board; Site Feedback and Help has moved down to the bottom of the section New Members is in.

Sorry if it's a bit confusing for a couple of days - but the speed improvement should be worth it. With four speed improvement projects either running now or being completed soon, you should definitely see an improvement:

- Server upgrades
- Megathread splits
- Top-level forum reductions
- New template soon (new 'skin' or 'theme')

Please comment in Site Feedback, perhaps if you think you can see where other improvements can be made.
