Plumbing Forum Hierarchy

Why is the plumbing forum so far down on the main page with the rest of the topics in this forum? Since plumbing is probably the #1 DIY trade in my opinion shouldn't it be closer to the top.... instead its relegated toward the bottom?.

Just an observation. No big deal I guess, just poorly planned IMHO.

I think its just the order it got placed on the forum way back when. For the most part. The items are listed in alphabetical order (with the exception of interior and exterior improvements).
If you click on the forum bar at the top of the screen and not select a subject, it will bring you to the full list of subjects. You'll notice they are a bit better ordered and tend to add priority to the higher traffic subjects.

Because it starts with a "P" and not an "A"? Just guessing.

If you have a favorite forum, bookmark it so that you can go straight to the forum you like and skip the main menu. I used to peruse the forums by category but since I visit almost every day, it's much easier to click on the "today's posts" link and look for one that interests me, starting with the latest.

Actually by thread and post count, looks like it's Electrical. Too hard to check "Views", but I suspect Automotive would lead that; people browsing for problems matching what they have.

I wasn't basing my claim on forum usage. Just real world facts.
