    On the contrary, Bob...

    Come back & read some of the things I've written above from time to time...

    ...

    Just a For Instance of what might rock your noggin... all those things considered...
    1. Weapons of War becomes a Parent
    2. Specific Weapons Systems are Sub'd by 'Land', 'Sea', 'Air' & 'Space' (examples only)
    3. The Parent becomes the general Atrium where overlap, combined or general discussion occurs

    My previous points were not an opinion...

    Just food for thought...

    Nothing that follows should be construed as an opinion expressed either way... it is simply 'food for thought':

    • There is an exclusive 'Allied Armor' sub-forum in WWII Forum because we have a hosted Forum about 'Axis Armor'.
    • Warships are Weapons/Weapons systems. Sub-Forums about the weapons of any War/Era does not generally divide discussion of general warfare within any given War/Era & its relevant Forum.
    • A Forum about Weapons/Weapons Systems already exists... does creating a Sub-Forum about Air, Armor, Naval, Infantry, etc... in every War/Era Forum actually improve things?
    • Does doing so simply create conditions such as to spread all related discussion so far abroad the entire Community as to make it likely that many folks will never get around to other related discussions that they would normally have enjoyed as a result of its simplicity of discovery?
    • Discussion of Land Warfare is to its very roots a discussion of Warfare, none the less. Dividing it from other discussion of warfare in any specific War/Era Forum divides the entire discussion of Warfare within any War/Era.
    • Discussion of Naval Warfare is to its very roots a discussion of Warfare, none the less. Dividing it from other discussion of warfare in any specific War/Era Forum divides the entire discussion of Warfare within any War/Era.
    • Discussion of Aeronautical Warfare is to its very roots a discussion of Warfare, none the less. Dividing it from other discussion of warfare in any specific War/Era Forum divides the entire discussion of Warfare within any War/Era.
    • Armchair General is one community about Warfare, not 3 communities about Land, Sea & Air Warfare, in complete exclusion or segregation of each other.
    • If there is an exclusive Forum about Naval Warfare, how long before Land Warfare & Airpower require the same exclusivity?
    • What is the goal or potential result... separate communities... or burbs within the same community?
    • ...

    Just sayin, mates... You all know of my love of all things Naval, but it is important to consider many things before just creating another Forum - or even Sub-Forums... Many a community dedicated to history have diluted themselves into obscurity... the 'why & will anything really be improved' ways & means of things within a historical community should always be considered over & above the 'it would be neat' (but to whom & for how long) aspects of sustainable Forum Community infrastructure & existence.

    Now the following is exclusively my own opinion:

    I can think of at least one Forum dedicated to only one conflict that is so dilluted that getting around to the many different things that interests me is nigh on impossible - to the point of ridiculous proportions - but I will not name it here... I suspect most of us can name at least one, if not several such similar Forums elsewhere, as well.

    Just sayin, mates...

    I agree...there are many naval topics that get discussed on this forum, and I think they should have their own subforum.

    Good call, Bob.

    The Navy role in warfare throughout the ages has been decisive
    in many instances. I've a personal interest, from my Dad coming home
    on the Queen Mary to march in the 5th Ave Victory Parade in NY,
    father-in-law AO-107 USS Passumpsic in the Korean Conflict, good
    friend who was Commander of a Hospital Ship in WW2, Korea and Viet Nam and a goods who were Submariners on the Scorpian and Alabama.
    My 2nd cousin, a Marine fought at Iwo, Saipan and Tinian in the Marianas, it was the Navy who got him there and brought him home!

    Go Navy! and Semper Fi!

    Anchors aweigh!

    Yup! Count me in too. My dad served as CO of the Marine detachment and air defence officer onboard the USS SOUTH DAKOTA from 1943 to the end of the war. I served aboard the USS INTREPID(NOT during WW2) which saw a lot of action in the Pacific Theater as well. Sounds like a great sub forum.

    started a topic Naval Warfare Subforum?

    Naval Warfare Subforum?

    Title says it all. How about one? We have seperate subforums for Allied, German and Russian armor, what about one for all aspects of naval warfare during WW2? There's been a good number of threads lately about different ships that have generated alot of posts.

    Thanks for reading,

    Bob
