I miss the " Humanities " listing. But it works.

James,

All of the forums are still there. They are just intermixed with the other General Discussion forums. I was thinking that some of the topics/posts sort of fit one forum, but really were addressing some of the aspects found in other forums. This was further complicated when it touched on forum under both general discussions and humanities categories. Thinking about it, I felt the categories of general discussions and humanities were really arbitrary and opted to mix them back together again. For example some of the humanities topics like history could arguably be in either heading. This way I can avoid the issue and people can better find the forum for which they are hunting. They are all there in one list to choose from instead of being in two categories.

I was wondering what happened to your topic on tree climbing, there were many good posts there particuarly from a guy from the new england area. I have forgotten his name but he showed many techniques and knots as well as videoing specific climbs he had done, maybe this has been incorporated eleswhere I hope so there was a lot of valuable information there,

Kris,

The Tree Climbing topic is still there just under the heading:

General Discussions ‹ Trees and Forests - General Discussion Forums ‹ Tree Climbing

That makes sense.
