Maybe in place of the somewhat inactive Linguistics forum?
And while we're at it, merge the Essays and Creative Writing forums together and the Arts with Mundane Babble, but with consideration of a name change.
Who said "none of the above"? I'd be curious to hear arguments supporting Essays.

Personally, I still maintain that the Essay/CW/and Art forums need some form of contraction. Essays & CW together and the Arts into General Discussion. I've really never seen much there to warrant its place and any serious talk about aesthetics can go into Philosophy.
Current Events is also little used by the looks of things and could be included in General Discussion (as opposed to Mundane Babble), but not as a sub-forum.
And maybe an Ethics forum/sub-forum is unnecessary...is a trial run possible for 3-4 months to see if it encourages activity, if it fails to do so then the idea can be rejected.

Where is Social Sciences? It's the fourth most used Forum here!

2.) We're talking about combining Essays/CW in Staff Discussion right now. The vote is 2-0 so far with only two Mods voting. Arts, Music & Entertainment is about more than just the Arts. It has become a Forum which is about Music, TV, Movies, Video Games, Art, Photography, the whole nine. It was previously just called, "Visual Arts," and was underused at that time.
Personally, I think 9 is too many. We have 13 main forums now (not counting the Archive), and 7 subforums (again, not counting the Archive). I think we should shoot for 7 main forums, with maybe 3 or 4 subforums.

2. Social Sciences
3. Natural Sciences
6. The Arts (CW sub-forum)
7. General Discussion (HoQ sub-forum)
The rest to be sent into oblivion.
And I still think Current Events can go either into SS main forum or General Discussion.
3.) I think seven is too few, I think that 10 is a nice round number and could be balanced in a 1, 5, 2, 3 type of Format.
