creating forums is relatively easy and painless, MIGRATING them is a PITA.... and doing so wholesale requires temporary closure of the forum.... but streamlining was felt necessary....
for the time being, i would suggest people tag their subject matter headings , so, if your post is about something you would have posted in the MIC forum, SAY SO.... SO , thread title should read
" MICS: does the shure sm58 hurt when you drop it on your foot? "
" DIY: the tracks are lifting when i try and solder these components what am i doing wrong? "
"REVIEW: I just bought a new toy and it's fabulous "
this makes it easier for people to find, and in the event of any further restructuring , easier for us to move stuff.
if you don't know who i am, i aint gonna tell you.
