Change name of Film SLR and/or SLR Lens sub-forums

Adam,

I propose a name change to either the Film SLR Forum and/or SLR Lens Forum. The inclusion of 'SLR' in both titles and their position right next to each other often leads to my accidentally entering one forum when I wanted the other. It's not just me, the other week a thread got posted in the Film forum about the new 17-70.

If we were to change the names to something like 'Pentax Film Camera Discussion' and leave the other as 'Pentax SLR Lens Discussion' it would reduce confusion, increase readability, and lesson the mods' workloads by lessening the chance of a thread needing to be moved.

I can unfortunately not rename forums due to the way our SEO system works. If I were to rename the Film SLR section, all existing links to it, and all google listings, would break - and we don't want that!

The only feasible change would be to move the lens forum away from the Film SLR forum, perhaps beneath the accessories section.

not to be rude at all but why make such a drastic change when you could maybe pay more attention to what section you click on?

seamuis, it's not a problem I find as a deal-breaker or anything serious like that. It's just something I've found myself (and apparently at least one other person) do, especially when it's late at night

Or perhaps move FILM SLRs up under the Digital SLR section. This would define a "Bodies" zone.

P&S would fit here too...
