Done. Unless this poll suddenly has a complete change of direction by Thursday, Tech Help sub-forum stays.

You mean this topic title, or do you actually mean the title of the sub forum itself? Either way the answer's no, as that's no what the poll says. ;)

Should I (or another mod) move old threads that can be classed as Tech Help?

I think that would probably be sensible.

Right, I've moved 40 or so topics across into Tech Help. Any that I wasn't sure about I've left. Many of these are buying advice threads, which I was going to put into Tech Help but thought I'd better check with the rest of you lovely people first.

Personally I think subforums are one of the worst ever things to be put on a piece of forum software and should only be used for something that is a read once only topic that once read the user never needs to go into again.

Just my opinion ;-)

For instance...
Why is Serious Discussion a seperate forum and not a sub of The Lounge ?
Two sperms are having a race, one sperm says, "My arms are killing me with all this swimming, how much further is it to the womb?"
The second sperm says, "Fuckin ages yet, we've only just gone past her tonsils!!
