Order of boards

Please could the order of boards for members use be changed slightly?
As general chat is at the top of the list it appears to be the first stop for questions and complaints which are genealogy based and in particular about the new tree format.
As though those of us who enjoy a break from research with some friendly chat have already had serious and light hearted topics lumped together on one board could we please have 'general chat' at the bottom of the list to make it less tempting to those who do not read instructions?

Thanks in anticipation.

oh good idea

Well not make anything any better.

Those that do not read instructions will continue not to read them.

If it's at the bottom it will probably get all those threads that currently end up on Suggestions, that have nothing to do with improving the site.

It would probably help if the chat boards were renamed to more distinct names.

Why so negative?
I'm referring to the dropdown menu.

Kense. I agree re renaming.

How about GR decide though?

Thanks Stray.

Not negative at all

Just saying it as it is

I agree with you Island.

Perhaps alphabetical order?
