Hi,  in the  mortgages and homes forum in Energy it could be of benefit to add sub divisions (if thats what they are called)
Smart meters , best way heat , epg   etc

    Hi @jvjack  - thanks for this suggestion. We'd be interested to hear other people's thoughts.

    We did have a brief discussion last year about splitting general energy-saving tips (likely to be applicable to most/all) from the threads about people's individual issues with their providers which are of more niche interest. You could potentially have an 'energy-saving' board and an 'energy providers' board.

    However I think there is a risk of having too many sub-divisions which just makes it harder for people to post in the right place first time, so there's a balance to be struck.

    Please make how to post Electricity and Gas items clearer.    We have LPG etc   with the assumption that everything else is lumped under Energy.

     Split between electricity and gas sections might work - but anything more complex than that is likely to lead to yet more posts in the wrong place I suspect. 

    Also - please don’t split out to a a specific Smart Meters section - we’re having enough issues recently with conspiracy theorists and those who’ve been sucked in by their arguments - giving them a playground all to themselves sounds like a recipe for disaster!

    Dunno,  But today so far 34 threads with new posts and older posts posted in. Means that those who can be helpfull have to read through at least the title of 34 threads.

    Electric/E7 threads used to be under 'other' with LPG and Oil and the main board being Gas only, or both, I guess that board was seen as too quiet with posts being not seen?
