Technical sub-forums mash-up. Why?

Why was the Technical forum section divided up by model 450, 451, 453? A lot (most) of the posts that apply to 451 only are in the 450 sub-forum. And if there is one of universal application, where are you going to find it? I started two threads that deal with 451 only, yet are under the 450 sub. Kind of a treasure hunt. Why, Oh why?

That's an interesting observation. I was kind of ignoring the 450 section because I made the assumption that it was 450 stuff!

Not that there's anything wrong with 450s, but my interest is mainly the 451.
Maybe things aren't as dead as I thought after all.

This is a labor of love that should only serve to make the SCoA Technical Sub-forum a more valuable resource.

Thanks to those doing the "heavy lifting" of sorting it out! Lots of good stuff out there...

All of a sudden the 451 Technical forum on Autoguide on my phone went empty. (Not sure if that helps any. I've been up since 2, can't even remember at this point...) Good night...

As a 453 owner, I'm happy the way it is. Well actually I'd like the sub-forums prefixed by the model number so that they show up in the ACTIVE TOPICS page.

The only way to sort out that section is one post at a time. Sorry I can't sit and go through them all in one shot, but i'd be insane by the time I am done. If you do a general search, it will still get you the post no matter what section it is in.

Still working on it...
