Good idea to me, combined with one being kinda hidden and one of the topics is not very popular, combining them should be a big hit.

I think this one could work well either way... but I agree that the Game Review forum should be made more visible somehow.

Maybe base the decision on traffic?  If both aren't particularly heavy (I'm guessing they're not), then go for it.

Yep. It was me why said that in the other threads. One review forum would been a good idea, regaards it a hardware or software of any kinds.

This is a good idea Saint.  I would also consider creating a new forum for hardware questions.  They tended to collect in the hardware review forum.  Peale would then flush them to the main forum from time to time.

Hehe, it was my idea, but that it.

I saw these moved thread in hardware forum being removed a week after that. there are many of them.

I guess the main board do not have such for destription for that. I see

Building arcade controls, cabinets, console adapters, etc...

change to

Building arcade controls, cabinets, console adapters, hardware questions, etc...

Considering the current neglect of those boards, "Reviews" seems like a good idea.  And hopefully taking "Hardware" and "Game" out of the board title will cut down on the problem with folks asking questions in there.

There are many moved threads? Can you merge them into one thread of such. They take much place, and of course only du these which are over one week old.
