New Forum? Sticky maybe? Or slippy maybe?

I think that it would be best if there was an "index" to all of the posts--leave the forums the way they are, but cross reference something like "CV joint on '88 D/R hatch blew--any suggestions"? with EA81s, 4WD Subarus, Transmissions, and Hatchbacks. Have a separate category in the index for each repair/model:

FF-1, 1300, Stage 1, Stage 2
Gen 2 NA
Gen 2 Turbo
and so on;


Head Gaskets/Oil Leaks
Transmission/CV axles
4WD drivetrain

Such a system would be labor-intensive-but there might be a way that the user could select which index categories to place the post under?
This is just an opinion, and one I don't expect to be acted upon soon, if ever. I do realize that this is incredibly labor-intensive, and if it can't be automated, it's very hard on the mods. Please remember that I'm not trying to make your lives harder--I think it'd make the board a better resource while leaving the current structure intact. And I'm also a librarian by trade; this is somewhat in my nature.

exactly, the only hard part would be in setting it up, and then if it's optional per user, that would be even better.
