Should Lighting Forum Be Merged...?

I visit the lighting forum two or three a day. I answer those I can but I notice on those I can't that they stay unanswered several hours longer then similar posts at the Electrical forums. Since many questions at Electrical already are Fans and Lights I'm wondering if it might be beneficial to merge the two. New posters do get impatient and this would in some cases get faster answers and perhaps a better first experience with our forums..

I have also seen the Lighting forum go a couple of days with no post. I know when I am new to a forum before even joining I check how active it is. There are times when if I checked it out as a potential member I might look elsewhere because of the low activity.

I think the lighting forum should be renamed "how do I hook up my ceiling fan" forum. That's about all we have been answering lately, it seems.
I went to a forum the other day and the last post in a particular area was 3 years old. Goodbye!
