So, I see all these mod.9 threads being moved to their "appropriate forums", because "it's easier for devs to read them there".

Maybe instead you should realize these "appropriate forums" are dead and should be removed. Few people have time to click on 20 different forums to read about what's going on.

The main forums we really need are:
- suggestions
- development discussion (bring it back! that's where we'd discuss anything related to how the game is implemented, quests are made, etc., i.e. anything that may directly interest a dev but is not an explicit suggestion)
- general discussion (anything else)

Of course keep class/server forums, etc. But go through the dead forums and delete them (e.g. race forums, gameplay / combat / quests / hirelings / monsters / Favor / UI ...)

I don't know about you Thiocan, but all I ever click on is the "new Posts" option and generally do not care which forum a thread appears in. Only if I am digging for some old thread do I bother with diving into an actual forum listing.

This is what "New Posts" is for. :)

I don't recall seeing any white smoke...

I guess that works for people who are even more addicted to forums than myself, but I personally find the new posts to be a mess due to being filled with posts I don't care about (especially servers/marketplace forums). Is there a way to filter them out?

Also, if you're saying one should use "new posts", then doesn't it mean the forum categorization is useless in the first place?

Last thing: somehow my original thread title has been edited. It was something like "Please delete the useless forums". I wonder what was wrong with it.
