Rearranging Our Forums

The staff have been discussing rearranging our forums for a couple weeks and we'd like to ask for feedback from the rest of the community.

 

Do you feel like PHP Freaks needs to add a particular forum? Did you had a hard time finding the right place to ask a question? Were you confused about which forum was most appropriate for some topic? Speak up and we'll try to do something about it.

So we'll get rid of Math as it never was that popular, and promote Regex since it is popular. We'll also merge mod_rewrite into Apache (with an edited description) since it was the only remaining sub-forum.

 

I've edited the first post to match.
