Austria & Germany is somewhere below Asia and also directly (as Link?) in the wrong alphabetical order

Edit: Just found that all Countries seem to have a link going below Asia :oops: :shock:

- if you click on Norway its
Country (Language) Forums ‹ Asia ‹ Malaysia ‹ Requests for new Area Manager ‹ Norway
- if you click on Italy its
Country (Language) Forums ‹ Asia ‹ Malaysia ‹ Requests for new Area Manager ‹ Italy
and so on ...

I'm not complaining in any way - I know that re-organisation is underway and the forum structure is somewhat borked due to no fault of ours - but I thought I'd share the current breadcrumb trail for the UK forum:

It is an issue with the country language forums only. Waze app, community, and other ones are working fine.

I love the new streamlined forum structure and appreciate the hard work all y'all are doing to make it better. Hang in there.

Alan, I was talking to jemay about one of the sub forums with a suggestion. His moderator controls do not appear to let him do what we think is possible, so let me propose it here and we can find an alternate solution.

Problem:
1. When a new forum reader starts drilling into the US forums, they may think they need to go all the way down to their state to post a question.
2. When a new forum reader comes to the US forum they may post a question at the US level, when it should be in the subforums for a region or a state.

Proposal:
An announcement thread (or at least a forum sticky) for all US forums and subforums (all the way down to the state forums) with basic guidelines for when to post at each of the levels. The post would be identical for all the forums, so hopefully there is a way to make one post appear in all sub forums below it.

Now if this is currently posted somewhere, I have not run across it so likely other less OCD forum followers will also not see it (and we already discussed how much I am spending here in the forums at the disgust of other members of my family. :mrgreen: )

I think free phpBB boards have a terrible layout compared to Vbulletin but they also cost $249 for the licsense.

This main forums reorg is now complete. Mostly followed the OP with the following exceptions:

1. Former Map->Editing->Help when Waze.... (3 forums) moved to Waze App->Navigation & Routing
2. An '* Issues and Requests' subforum in Waze App, Waze Map Editor, and Website, Community, General forums to collect issues (not necessarily bugs) and requests for those areas. Named for easy viewing in Tapatalk as well.
3. Country (language) forums moved up in the view to promote local forum usage.
