When I first came to this board I was shocked by the flatness of it. The tree depth is very shallow and each thread is so long.

This makes it near impossible to properly look up information.

Each subforum should allow users to create subforums.

e.g.

Mining => hardware should have sub forums for each manufacturer and then types of queries as below:

Mining => hardware => Bitmain => S1 => setup
Mining => hardware => Bitmain => S1 => tech support
Mining => hardware => Bitmain => S1 => overclocking
Mining => hardware => Bitmain => S1 => misc


To be quite honest I wonder why anyone even uses Bitcointalk with such a messy way of posting and responding to posts.

I know I struggle with it and I see things asked over and over again when it could more easily be found by looking in those deeper sub-forums, this would in turn save many posts since it has already been asked and answered elsewhere.

Or maybe adding tags would be enough?

Tags are one thing but it would just read and browse so much better if the hierarchy were sorted. looks at forums such as Xda-developers and how much easier it is to find information. if you want info on a specific device, go to that devices subforum. if you want dev related into go to development in that devices subforum or development in the platform subforum.

You may use the forum search or google search with "site:bitcointalk.org".

Each subforum should allow users to create subforums.

Not sure if I understand your idea correctly. Do you mean any users can create subforums as they want?
If that is the case, I am afraid it could be and would be abused to create lots of craps...

I think the search is limited and there should be more granular presentation of sub-forums. Maybe not let everyone create but make it easier to create them and/or create more of them.
Each pool, hardware vendor, sub-type should have a sub-forum. as it is now there is one main then one level down.

Lets say that each of the bigger topics such as bitmain hardware, pools, software such as bfgminer etc are actually subforums that assigned moderators are allowed to then create more subforums under.
Any individual can request a new subforum for when they run up a new project, be it hardware or pool or whatever.

I think this would create a more orderly hierarchy

People don't adhere to even the flat hierarchy as it is now - they won't with anything deeper.

That's always a struggle but that will always be a problem which will not make any difference to enabled deeper hierarchy.
I reckon you warrant your own subforum just for hardware guides for example.
