Last time I wanted to post something I found that in the current division in subfora there perhaps is room for improvement.
The current software section, for example, combines two or even three subjects:
- the IDE
- the programming language
- own programming, tips, libraries, etc.
The hardware section is not only about hardware, but also about software ("how to do this and this with the Ethernet shield").
The foreign-language fora are something I am always very much opposed against (though I am Dutch) because it does not fit the idea having a large community. IMHO it would be better to use the foreign-language fora for people that know nothing about English giving them the opportunity to find an interpreter for them. It is a real pity if a wonderful solution to a problem stays "hidden" is a Portugese, Dutch or Croatian forum.
However, the main thing is that of the Hardware and Software part. I'd suggest
Hardware - hardware issues, problems, bugs, fry stories, etc...
> Arduino main boards (Duemillanova, Mega, ...)
> Arduino clone boards (...)
> ...perhaps subfora for popular shields...
Programming language - issues creating your own software
> Syntax, semantics, etc...
> Bugs in current language
> How to
Well, something like that.
