I decided to see which forums have the most activity and which forums have the least activity by using the equation:

(Number of Posts) divided by (Months in existence x 100) = Posts Per Month (PPM) in hundreds

And heres what I got for each forum, I bolded the 5 with the least amount of activity

Debate.org = 129,108 / 3600 = 35.8633 ppm
Arts = 3,747 / 3600 = 1.0408 ppm
Economy = 9,521 / 1200 = 7.9342 ppm
Education = 12,302 / 3600 = 3.4172 ppm
Entertainment = 18,335 / 3600 = 5.0931 ppm
Funny = 268 / 100 = 2.68 ppm
Games = 191,105 / 1200 = 159.2542 ppm
Health = 8,929 / 3600 = 2.4803 ppm
History = 1,022 / 100 = 10.2200 ppm
Misc = 134,474 / 3600 = 37.3539 ppm
News = 12,480 / 3600 = 3.4667 ppm
Personal = 30,363 / 1200 = 25.3025 ppm
Philosophy = 23,306 / 1200 = 19.4217 ppm
Politics = 122,250 / 3600 = 33.9583 ppm
Religion = 136,717 / 3600 = 37.9769 ppm
Science = 17,200 / 3600 = 4.7778 ppm
Society = 42,767 / 3600 = 11.8797 ppm
Sports = 10,232 / 3600 = 2.8422 ppm
Technology = 6,356 / 3600 = 1.7656 ppm

Lets do (Number of Topics) divided by (Months in existence) = Topics Per Month (TPM)

Again, the 5 with the least amount of activity are in bold

Debate.org = 4,626 / 36 = 128.500 tpm
Arts = 208 / 36 = 5.778 tpm
Economy = 338 / 12 = 28.167 tpm
Education = 505 / 36 = 14.028 tpm
Entertainment = 1,176 / 36 = 32.667 tpm
Funny = 31 / 1 = 31 tpm
Games = 1,862 / 12 = 155.167 tpm
Health = 296 / 36 = 8.222 tpm
History = 47 / 1 = 47 tpm
Misc = 2844 / 36 = 79.0000 tpm
News = 602 / 36 = 602.3600 tpm
Personal = 957 / 12 = 79.7500 tpm
Philosophy = 782 / 12 = 65.1667 tpm
Politics = 3,713 / 36 = 103.1389 tpm
Religion = 3,124 / 36 = 86.7778 tpm
Science = 660 / 36 = 18.3334 tpm
Society = 1,086 / 36 = 30.1667 tpm
Sports = 550 / 36 = 15.2778 tpm
Technology = 469 / 36 = 13.0278 tpm

Basically, Arts is the least active forum with Technology, Sports, and Health close behind.

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Technology forums are either people asking for help (such forums are generally resolved quite quickly) or d!ck comparing contests between apple, microsoft and linux (and I usually end those threads quickly ;D)

I've only posted in funny once and it was to protest its existence.

Didn't I say that we needed to combine them?

Arts and Entertainment.
Miscellaneous (Funny, personal, and games)
History and Society.
News and Politics.
Religion and Philosophy.
Science and Technology.
Health and Education.

See how much more effective that is?

Combining the games forum, or the religion forum, with another one would make it suck. The front page would fill up and we'd have to go back pages to find discussions or games that we're currently in. They need to be left alone. Mafia generates alot of posts and deserves it's own forum.

I don't understand the need to lower the number of forums available anyway. How does the number of forums we have bother anyone?? Why does it matter if we have 7 or 19 forums, what benefit do we gain by reducing it to 7??

I don't know if mafia should have it's own forum, but combining forums will increase the number of people active on them. It's the inactivity of the forum that drives people away, and dividing them by two decreases the amount of posts by half. WSA even posted his music thread in the miscellaneous section because nobody would have looked at it otherwise.
