Can we have subsections in the Hifi forum of CD players, Amplifiers, speakers?
So much easier I think?
HIFI= Yamaha CDS300 CDP ----> Rega DAC-----> Yamaha AS500 Amp-----> B&W 684
Airport Express ------> Rega DAC-----etc..
Yamaha RX-673 ------> Q Acoustics 2050i
At the moment we're engaged in some substantial work simply to get the site running properly again, so we don't want to upset the apple cart by introducing more variables. We'll take another look at this at a later date, but your request is noted.
Personally, I think more sections would be more trouble than they're worth, as most questions on here aren't about, say, players or speakers in isolation, but how they interact with each other.

I think subsections would work if they were structured as true subsections i.e. as a filter. Currently there are two "subsections", Turntables and Headphones, to the "upper level" HiFi section, but in reality, as far as I can see, they are independent sections. If one creates a post in the Turntables section it doesn't appear in the "upper level" HiFi section; I think it should. I hope this makes sense.

As an aside, who reset the forum list to alphabetical? I hate change...
Cambridge Audio StreamMagic 6 | 751BD | 651A | Diamond 9.1 | Minx Xi | Sonos Play:3

Not alphabetical here. (If you mean the order seen after clicking 'Forums' tag.)
The order as I see it (for forums, not sub sections) is A, S, H, H, T, W, F, C ... etc.
Sub-forums/sub-sections are listed alphabetically under each 'top' forum though. Is that what you meant?
Marantz M-CR603 + AirPlay • Rega R3 loudspeakers • iPhone 5 • iMac • Apple Airport Extreme 802.11n • Apple iPad Mini • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390 • Ruark Audio R1 Deluxe • Humax HDR-Fox T2
Surely the site needs fewer sub sections. I think the main page looks overly busy.
I agree, less subjections, but as I suggested the ability to filter (effectively tag) at time of posting so that if a reader wishes he/she can enter a filtered list of posts.
I did mean that, and you're right - I only saw that 'About the Site' was first. I presumed this meant they had been ordered alphabetically (since even that would make more sense than the order they're in now...)
