And this is it?
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

It's here.

Is it really needed? The first 3 pages on the Electronics sub-forum covers well over a year of posts, even the first page is nearly 3 months. It's not like there's reams to trawl through. That board means there are now 4 levels on the hierarchy, which feels excessive.

The team is very aware of cluttering up the forum with sub-boards. The Arduino one was the result of considering several requests for it.

If a member has a microcontroller query, then the Arduino board would be intuitively the first port of call.

The suggestion that there are four levels of hierarchy itself seems excessive. If you are interested in electronics, then you will go to the electronics board. If this is microcontroller connected, it would make sense to go straight there, where all programmable electronics are collected in one place.
