    LOL, not every emulator needs a specific subforum :D

    Most of those already have forums. IMO you don't need more than one Atari forum, for example, to cover all the Atari emus. Others will be added as builds for them become official.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear, but it was implied that each system should be in its own subsubforum, similar to how the Nintendo subforum is currently set up. Example:

    Atari / 2600
    Atari / 5200
    Atari / 7800
    Atari / 8-Bit
    Atari / Lynx
    Atari / ST
    etc.

    If an emulator can emulate more than one system, then naturally it would be structured something like this (assuming there's an emulator that can emulate 2600-7800):

    Atari / 2600-7800
    Atari / 8-Bit
    Atari / Lynx
    Atari / ST

    Btw, Alekmaul has ported over two new emulators for OD, so please add them to this forum :).

    SNK / NGPC

    Atari / 7800

    That's still a lot of sub-forums.

    I didn't realize that BAFelton set up the GCW forums that way. He has some personal issues going on so he hasn't been around in a while. I'll ask him about it when he comes back but I'm of the opinion that sometimes less is more. Too many subforums just makes things seem cluttered IMO.
