Please vote on new forum area: Build Logs

I'm thinking of creating a new area, Build Logs, which contains... build logs for your scanners. This will be different from Hardware, which will still be the place to ask questions, compare techniques, pose ideas, and so on. Build Logs will just be for your particular scanner build, and will also be the place for others to ask questions about your particular scanner build.

With that in mind, please vote FOR or AGAINST a new Build Log section, and please use this thread to ask questions, give ideas, give counter-proposals, worry and fret.

The vote will close at around 5 Apr 2011 at 20:00 GMT.

I think the problem isn't which forums exists, the problem is a purely tree structured forum in the first place. Anyone make forum software like gmail with "labels" that can be assigned to posts (by authors or readers) so they can be in multiple areas at the same time and new labels can be added at whim?

OK, so I've done a great deal of thinking about this, and I've decided for now not to create a new forum area. My reasoning is that often there is an overlap between general hardware questions and builds, as sometimes a build will spark questions.

I'll look into whether PHPBB has a module where keywords can be attached to posts.

I agree keywords/tags would be best if you can find a way to do that - there's so much overlap that mutually-exclusive categories would just cause confusion over where something belongs.
