By which I mean, slightly above the main forum page there'd be a link to a subforum for specialized requests/topics.

And ideally it would also show how recent the last activity was (4 hours ago, 8 minutes ago, 2 days ago, etc.).

Looking at help threads being closed in favor of the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum in the lifestyle section, I was wondering if the anime forum could get a subforum called something like Anime Help and Recommendations.

I can snap to the pinned threads in the anime forum when I see there's been recent activity because I know what they are and that I might be able to help. But I'm not too keen on sifting through a melting pot of heterogeneous inquiries.

My reasons are:

1) If someone has an anime question, they're going to go to the anime forum and look for a place to post it.
2) Anime-related threads in the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum will be mixed in among everything else.
3) Keeping tabs on the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum from the anime forum will be onerous.
4) Separating the question/inquiry threads from the audience that can answer them is counterproductive.
5) Overall it makes connecting people with anime questions to answers more of a hassle than is necessary.

But I do like people being able to make new threads for new questions/requests, so I wondered if this was possible.

As far as anime help and recommendations go, there are already threads pinned for both topics in the Anime sub-forum.

But not for long, according to lorreen.
