'Need' is a big word. The streamer board thread did get out of hand a bit once Roon over AIR was announced but seems to have solved itself. Most threads are doing ok too.
Let's say there's room for moderation.

I don´t think so.
I´m very new around here, but i feel that the older ones are a good influence for newcomers, the rest depends on the education of each one.
In the end, there´s a natural selection.
The moderation we have is enough, i guess.

I voted yes, but as per Pim, it's more like 'could be useful' rather than 'needs'.

To be clear, by moderation I don't mean hardcore moderators popping up everywhere and killing the sites unique style, just a bit of help keeping things tidy - merging, moving, splitting topics etc.

I would personally vote for a slight reshuffle of categories too and maybe some subcategories - updated over time to capture the 'hot topics of the month/year. Beyond the scope here though.

Hi Hifi_swlon, could you make some suggestions re the reshuffle/reorganisation of categories?

Thanks

I voted no on the basis that I don't think it is required. We are fortunate enough to have well behaved members and that, even when they are divergence of opinions, discussions are remaining informative, polite and do not turn into flame wars nor trolls.

Splitting, tidying and maintaining topics in the background would not hurt, but this is a lot of efforts and investment from the moderating people.

Last but not least, I end up consulting the forum not based on topics and it's organization but using either the 'view New posts' or 'view today's posts' options, hence my low prioritization of reorganizing the forum.

Best regards and thank you all for this forum.

I voted no.

Regarding the structure, I think less sub forums world be better, not more. I think a lot of the multiple threads for the same thing are because people don't think the same.

More self-moderation would be lovely, and if anyone wants to more-actively moderate that's great, but I don't find it necessary.

Excellent post and I agree that the quiet moderation currently deployed so far is the preferred way forward. 

Just be thankful that we have a forum which bears no resemblance to the moderated forums of WBF, PF and HFW. 

Tidying up is a prolonged and thankless task - and maybe the best way is just to leave things as they are OR put threads not used for two years into an archive slot, accessible but not part of general threads.

I refrained from asking this but cannot really resist ... Jean-Marie, in your photograph you bear a resemblance to the other Devialet Calmel but maybe that name is fairly common in France?
