The last vote (this one) fell on a perfect split. There appears to be a division between people who want to basically unify the site and people who want to keep it separate; people who think the site needs more and or less boards.
I have pushed for the development of /a/ and /lit/ and I would support /v/ in all likelihood. And keep the rest in hobby. I also think removing tech was a mistake, in hiegnsight. I was against it at first and then agreed that it needed to be consolidated into hobby thiugh, being a user of the h myself I was not necessarily pleased with it.
I've been told that a boards creation should have a large base of support, though, obviously exactly measuring that is not so straight forward
