What happened to the future ebook device subsection

I am sure this frustrates a lot of other people beside myself. I would suggest if it is not reinstated that there should be some temporary link to it.

It was rolled into "News and Commentary" forum. All of the threads were moved so nothing is missing. There were some threads about this in the Feedback section a month back or so. Yea, here they are:

I am sure you guys thought about it a lot for this change, but may I suggest that a separate section would be a wise idea. I don't know if others have requested this but I don't see how each device gets its own subsection but there is no specific subsection for future ebook devices...I think all in all the subforums have been overintegrated so to speak.

If you read the threads reference you will see the thinking. News and Future Devices were really redundant and when there is "News" of a "Future Device" where do you put it? Personally I think it was a good change. But, each is entitled to his own opinion.

I believe it(lumping them together) is a good idea. Less confusion.

Ok, guys thanks for your reply, like I said I am sure you gave it a lot more thought than I did and there are a lot of bright people here. That said, I still feel there should be a future devices section just for the news on future devices (and the "non-news"), and all the rest of the news elsewhere, because all the others are far less important than the new device staff for a lot of people, and they should be easily sought there. I am going to voice these of course when and if a new forum restructuring takes place.

Perhaps a prefix on the message would help people find these "important" messages.
