    Default Uke Talk or General Discussion?

    Would it be possible to keep "Uke Talk" threads about ukulele related stuff and use other Boards like "General Discussion" for other stuff?

    I know Covid 19 is on all of our minds these days and I have followed all of those threads. But sometimes I'd like to browse just the uke stuff too.

    Methinks we would have a lots more sub-threads if everyone had a say in organizing the forum (I'd love to see NUD threads in their own place).

    To me, these COVID-19 threads are no more annoying than anything else that's off-topic here. Most people here have the uke heavily involved in their life. COVID-19 is going to dramatically change the day-to-day for almost everybody. It seems pretty natural that they go hand in hand.

    Yes, there's no denying that things are changing.

    Covid-19 directly related:

    a. No more uke club meetings..
    b. No more gigs at nursing homes.
    c. Folk group disbanded indefinitely.
    d. Monthly folk jam cancelled indefinitely..

    I know I'm not the only one here...

    I couldn't agree more. It's annoying finding the Uke Talk forum jammed with COVID19 stuff, and other junk that doesn't relate directly to ukes and playing ukes. I lost a lot of gigs, but did I post it here? I hope not.
    Also, there are video threads too, I don't wanna see videos posted here.
    Next thing ya know, people will be posting recipes here. Sheesh.
    The creators of UU were smart enough to give us space to keep it neat and clean. Let's do that.

    From my experience on an other - non-uke - forum, people gravitate toward the main section. This other forum has grown to around twenty different sections. If you post a topic in the wrong section, Admin gets mad and threatens to ban you from the forum. I look at two section: Main and Chit-Chat.

    On UU, I look at Uke Talk and Marketplace. We have a Build section, but there are lots of build questions in the Uke Talk section, which I think is perfect. We could have sections for New Ukes, New Used Ukes, Uke Repair, Uke Restoration, Ukes I'd Like to Buy, Ukes I'm Sorry I Sold - the list is endless. Let's just post and reply and not try to become a herder of cats.
