There has been quite a lot of discussion between the mods to see if we can improve the forum category layout to make things a little easier to understand for new members, but also to improve the categorisation of posts. At the moment, two threads could be very similar, but posted in different categories, depending on if it is considered a "project" question. Here is the draft layout that we're considering: General questions General Electronics Discussion (theory, + catch all section) Homework, Assignments, and "I want to learn how to..." (as is) Datasheets and Manuals (as is) Electronics Forums LEDs and other Optoelectronics (LEDs, lighting, etc...) Microcontrollers, Programming and IoT Sensors and actuators (motors, sensors, servos, temp, acceleration, proximity) Power Electronics (power supplies and...?) Audio Radio / Wireless (wifi, bluetooth, RF, etc...) Construction & repair Construction techniques (Project construction, PCB Layout and Manufacture) Troubleshooting and Repair (as is) Members lounge Off topic Project Log Discussion Resource Discussion For Sale/Trade Woo Woo Comments & suggestions As you can see, around half of the forum categories are identical - but instead of having a Project and Circuit help sections, we've categorised the forum sections by common groupings (i.e. Sensors and Actuators). We want to try and keep the forum listing relatively concise, so there is no need to list every type of component and aim for 50 categories - we're aiming for logical common groupings that will keep things simple. Please do let us know your thoughts on this, including any ideas you may have for refinement.
