I know. But I have a feeling that the future of the Bibble-successor will be discussed here, not on Bibblelabs forums. Please correct me, if I am wrong.
From my POV it would be better if ASP forum will simply continue on the old Bibble forum, just renamed and with the appropriate domain name. And of course - if the developers will look at it, just as it was in the case of Bibble.
If there is another forum planned solely for ASP, and the devs will look at it, then sorry, ignore my request.

Maybe, if it is a user forum, which is serving the users, we should listen to their needs. I have seen many +1 for this request, but so far only one -1.
The Bibble5 forum structure has proved to work very well for the huge amount of information. Regardless the size of Bibble userbase, there are very many individuals here, who have contributed, and the generated traffic is huge. Maybe you are not used to such huge traffic for the single product. Maybe your POV is well suitable for other products, but not Bibble. (Sorry, ASP, not Bibble).
Have you used Bibble5 forum for past few years? Have you tried to imagine, how the Bibble5 forum would look like, without the categories? I have.

I prefer to look at various subforums, as I often focus on something particular, and
for knowing all new about ASP in case of existing subforums there is a link provided by our Bibble/ASP friends.
With this link we can have both of the worlds,
But without the forum subcategories we cannot.
It has proven many times for me, that the structure was rather good than bad, when I want to return after some (shorter) time to a topic. I was able to find it more easily without the help of search engine, just by brief view. Which will be time consuming, tiring and frustrating without classification. The search function is not suitable for every search. Sometimes it is much faster for me to use "visual search" within a category.
