For example, i think that webmaster world has done an excellent task of keeping topics seperate by creating MANY different specfic forums to post a specfic issue in.
My forums are starting to get cross posts....IE a post that belongs somewhere else, or posts that are not 100% on subject but dont belong anywhere else.
To resolve this, when i notice common trends in types of posts, ideas, threads, etc i create a forum specfically for THAT. It seems to be working, but i feel like im starting to get too critical.
Sometimes, of course, it makes sense to start a topic in anticipation of major developments in an area, or in order to set a new direction for your forum.
You'll always find some members, particularly new ones, who misplace their posts. Not much you can do about them except move them and try to train the posters.
I don't think it's a great idea to start too many new topics - you'll have to live with some posts that just don't fit perfectly in their current categories.
