All I want are published guides to behavior and more than just one mod. Delegate authority to at least one mod so if Toby gets sick the forum doesn't shut down.

Scroll down on each site of KF and find “Guidelines”.

The more mods the more can go wrong.
Everyone is different and everyone has different opinions...now you just have to deal with one, that makes life easier 😉

or worse.

The sport is too big to be curated through the lens of a single mod.

TKS Toby never read that guide before. I'm just worried if you have I dunno are ina coma for a month and can't do anything it might all go to hell. I would hate to see all your hard work get wrecked for a dumb reason.

Couple of cents
- "Racing" and "Events" ended up as same ballpark forums as I see. Lots of racing gear/techniques entries are discussed in Hydrofoil and Foil kites which is awesome and remainder are actual races which are also Events.
- "Board Builders" might need a chance to become "Builders/Construction" in general
- Kitesurfing is a bit of being "everything else" so "Wave kite" can take shape of Wave/KiteSurfboards specific to take away some of the general topics
- Rest of Kitesurfing would rather be Freeride
- Wakestyle is more of Wakestyle/Ramps/Unhooked
- Airstyle is more of Airstyle/Freestyle/HookedIn

And last, less serious but somewhat practical - there might be a good list of perma-forums e.g.
- Most sexy kite pics
- Foil vs. LEI kites
- Pics/videos
hopefully everyone gets more wind so there won't be need for Rants/Raves forum

just ideas to entertain

Already planned to downsize the number of forums.

Video forum already got created, will be more visible after update:

viewforum.php?f=200

This will replace the current video section.
