I think it's good to have sub forums to make it easier for people to find what they're looking for. I think some of the sub forums could be combined, i.e. the "Boards" and "Snowboard Reviews" seem like they're similar enough to only need 1 forum.
Nobody reads or searches any way. Pretty much every 3rd new post is a request for "should I buy this board" or "tell me about this board", often on one that has been reviewed.
I'd love to have a "Last page" button on the recent posts list, that's all I ever use. I just use the search feature for everything else.
Maybe add a sticky that detracts people from starting new helmet safety circle-jerk threads to somewhere.
Hmmm.. I already wrote this when Snowolf asked a similar question but thes thread went to nirvana.. anyway.
My opinion: A main "problem" with threads is, that the are dynamic, while their titles and allocation to a sub forum is static. The main objective of a thread / question of OP can change a lot over several pages, thus the title of the thread might not fit the most recent content of the thread. To enable the OP to change the main title / move the tread to a sub that fits the most recent post better could reduce the amount of new threads. Or it could generate a complete mess
