In response to some of the most common and repetitive questions in the Backcountry forum, we've split off a whole bunch of threads into a new forum, titled "Gear Instructions, Parts, and Repair." Hopefully the name is pretty self-explanitory, but this is the spot for all inquiries and discussions about how to get parts and instructions for outdoor gear. All general or specific topics concerning gear repair and maintenance should be posted in the new forum as well.
Along the same lines, the Backcountry forum seems to get a lot of very specific gear-advice questions. (e.g. "Has anybody used tent X?", "What's the best backpack for my trip?" etc.) I'm considering moving those into a separate forum and leaving the Backcountry forum open for more advanced discussions about techniques, destinations, etc.
What sort of organization would you find most useful in the forums?
