The topics in The Great Debate and Topical Discussion forums have been reorganized into new forums for the major topics of the Creation/Evolution debate. If you're accustomed to clicking on All Topics then the threads you've been participating in will still be easy to find. Those accustomed to entering through the Forums Summary might be unsure where to find their favorite threads, but a visit to the All Topics list should solve the uncertainty.
Suggestions for better names/descriptions for the new forums are welcome, as are suggestions for new topic areas, though please keep in mind we can't slice the categories too finely else the number of categories will become unwieldy.
I've moved most of the threads from the past couple weeks. Older threads will be moved as I find time.

This announcement isn't about the reorganization, but it happened at the same time.
On the same day I was reorganizing the forums, the website ran out of disk space. This is actually good news in a way, because it means the website is a victim of its own success. The enthusastic participation of members pushed us up against the limit.
Several posts were affected, and in some cases it looks like the complete text was lost. I apologize for not keeping better track of disk space usage, and in the future I'll try to do a better job so that more disk space is made available before we run out. I know how much effort is often put into the posts, and I'll work hard to see it doesn't happen again.
By the way, one of the new forums, Free For All, does not require any registration and is completely unmoderated.
