Unfortunately, the forum software we use doesn't allow the sub-forum idea.
The idea of threads is an interesting work around. The difficulty would be that a large number of users don't even post in the right forum, getting them to post in the right thread would seem to be an even more impossible task.
This is a usability problem I want to solve, and I'm open to ideas on it, I'm just not sure that this suggestion would end up helping.
