There might be a Sony PRS forum with a 505 and a 700 dedicated forum...
I understand the problem, and probably agree as it gets out of hand and makes using the forum, especially for newbies, really tough. I figure the easiest optin at the moment is just to add the Hanlin V3 variants to the forum title, meaning no new forums, sub-forums or anything else, other than the name change.
When they do the re-org, it may be that the readers remain grouped by hardware type, or it may be sorted some other way.
Of course, it's not that bad at the moment, as a search for "BeBook" brings up most of the relevant threads. But sometimes people like to browse and see what's around, and having BeBook in the thread title is enough to catch someone's eye and perhaps get them to read few threads they masy otherwise miss.
Anyway, let's see what heppens!
