F1 forum reorganisation

Some of you may have noticed the F1 forum has been shuffled about a bit.
This is to make it easier to archive threads specific to a particular season.

So the structure of the forum now is as follows:

F1 -> Circuits
|
| -> Archive -> 2010 Season -> GP Previews
|-> GP Discussions
|-> GP Polls

All the F1 threads will continue to be created as normal in the F1 forum.
Once the conversation has dried up, which is normally when the next race is on, then the preview, discussion and poll threads will be moved to the corresponding sub-forum in the Archive -> 2010 Season forum.
Those threads however will remain open so you can continue to post on them if you wish.

As time goes by, each new season will see a new forum created in the Archive forum as follows:

F1 -> Circuits
|
| -> Archive -> 2012 Season -> GP Previews
| |-> GP Discussions
| |-> GP Polls
|
|-> 2011 Season -> GP Previews
| |-> GP Discussions
| |-> GP Polls
|
|-> 2010 Season -> GP Previews
|-> GP Discussions
|-> GP Polls

The reason for doing it this way is two fold.

1. It stops the top of the F1 forum page from being filled up with sub-forums which results in the posts being pushed further and further down the page. Where previously there were 4 sub-forums, now there are just 2; Circuits and Archive.

2. It archives all the common threads for a season in one location making them easy to find in the future. We could have had one main archive forum and just put all of the threads in there but without a year prefix on the thread title it would make searching for a specific year/race a bit problematical.

I hope you find this change useful.
