Mostly because it is in alphabetical order so nobody thinks that one category is more important than another.

I would argue that Sports and Lifestyle et al. are more important than regional issues. The topics are lighter but that makes it no less important as a tool to form community and to discuss real issues. I would say this knowing that probably half of the members would agree with me and the other half would agree with you. So we should probably just agree to disagree and leave it at that...

Something has to be at the bottom, but that doesn't mean that the topics are any less important... just a conseqence of having a lot of things to discuss.

Perhaps to re-iterate the importance of the threads at the bottom, the transit threads in Great Ideas can be moved to Transportation, which also goes for any other topics out of their respective areas.

Just to keep stuff organised and to make sure people know there are discussions specialised for particularities.

Yup... Richard already does this.

In order to keep the forum list as short as possible, I encourage all mods to keep track of forums that aren't really being utilized and either a) modify the forum in some way to make it more popular b) suggest to combine it with something else.
