@Lakotaubp You're busy, so have a closer look when you have time.
The key difference and the reason for my suggestion in the first place is this:
A user can now post a new topic directly into the new 3t subcategory with all the benefits of having feedback to see how many times someone has looked at it, receive direct replies etc.
vince's original post would be moved to the new subcat and pinned (can't do this on the trial version of nodebb)
New users could be encouraged to post direct into the device subcat, or even moved by you into the subcat.
I appreciate it is extra work to set up for people busy enough already!! But I think it would be easy. Not sure though, I've only been doing it a day and the free trial version is a bit limited!
