I do agree we need some cleaup, and we do need some criteria to do it. May be relevance, by users.,.. bay posts... but for sure there are some forums that can be moved to subforums to leave room for the really important ones.

Bermuda - 4 posts (yes, four)
Nederlandse Antillen/ Antias Hulandes/ Netherlands Antilles - 31 posts
Nouvelle Caledonie - 15 posts
Suriname - 28 posts
Trinidad and Tobago - 87 posts
Uzbekistan [O‘zbekiston] [Ўзбекистон] - 10 posts

Doesn't make sense to allow these forums and remove Czech Republic and Slovakia with 41895 posts...

So in my opinion we should move above small (in participation) forums to their relevant forums (Europe, Caribean... ) and bring back Czech Republic and Slovakia to first page.

and if forum posts are not what counts, here's a different example:
Ireland pop. 6.4 million / area 84421 km2
CZ+SK pop. 15.9 million / area 127901 km2
In terms of population we are even bigger than Sweden and Finland put TOGETHER, both of which have their own separate topics in the main forum.
The road network length of Czech Republic alone is biger than Austria or Ireland or Norway or Romania ..

I am sorry, but I am truly upset right now. Who made this stupid decision? It makes our country forum even more complicated to find by newcomers.

Good option A: All countries within Europe should be directly in the main Country forum.
Good option B: All countries within Europe should be inside "Europe" forum

All other options are wrong.

Just FYI this is the list of country forums ordered by number of total posts:
67888: France
47214: Austria+Germany+Switzerland
38677: Italy
34899: Belgium+Nederlands+Luxembourg
32523: Czech Republic and Slovakia
22370: United States
21693: Brazil
20534: Latin America
20313: United Kingdom
18336: Spain
...

So you still think we are a small country?

As porubcan said, most of us regulars known where to find country local forum, we even have a topic with links to our subforums. When local subforums disappeared few days ago, we just thought - we have to wait for a while and things are gonna get better, not worse :)

it is not real problem for experienced users (usually have a bookmark already), but how can newbie find their country specific forum now?
This issue should be treated with priority, but I expect they already work hard on a fix and we should expect it "soon".
