What about separating out webserver software? I understand the Microsoft forum being "Microsoft products", but there is definitely a difference between IIS and ASP. The same can be said for Apache and PHP. I guess I'm just looking for more of a separation between actual programming questions, and everything else. IMO, IIS questions belong more on the networking side of the fence anyway.
One quick question - will the Browser Side World section get a Category Administrator soon? With three of the seven forums without a moderator and no admin, it's not clear who to contact regarding issues in the forums (or should we all continue badgering tedster?!)
<added>I still love it, though - the new groupings will be great once completed!</added>

see any other logical breaking points?
We are trying to increase the number of categories.
While this may not at all be in your plan-of-action, I would seriously like to see a division in the Supporters' Forum which would put all the search engine/seo/sem/etc. stuff in one section and everything else in another one.
Absolutely! There has always been a logical grouping of forums that I've thought of as "Technology World" which is pretty much self-explanatory.
>>sever side being the next logical one in line...
That could be the first candidate for inclusion in a Technology category, which could also include the RSS/XML, server-side scripting including PHP - and *possibly* a Databases forum that a lot of people have been asking for. That last one is questionable because other issues are involved, like site architecture and even setting up databases on our own computers, like for keyword research.
Anything those of us who are technically challenged have to ask our geek friends for advice about is a logical fit.
>>PPC/PFI section - Adwords
I don't know about PFI because that's still algorithmic search, but for the rest, "Advertising World" which could include both buying it and selling it.
LOL and just to save anyone asking, I wasn't intending to restructure the menu/sidebar categories until Brett's restructuring is complete.. if that's OK?
btw I agree that asp(.net) should be seperate from IIS..
how about something like Spider/Bot/Tracking World,
robots.txt, spider identification etc, T&L..
I'd be quite keen on a 'where Search is heading' forum. There seem to be a few of us whose passion is thinking about where this may all lead - it'd be cool to have a place for us all to mull the latest developments over - stuff like FaceTop [trnmag.com] and how that might one day play in.
The closest seems to be SEM Research topics - but I've always been a bit confused by that one, as the charter sub-heads it as SEO research topics, which makes more sense given the charter description, but then it wouldn't belong in the marketing section?
Anyway - thanks for asking :)
