It would be nice to have one thread for each podcast and each video all in one place with nothing else in the mix. I suspect it would take upwards of two hours to get everything moved into position, but [size=7pt](since it's not my time)[/size] I [size=7pt](obviously)[/size] think that it will be worth it.

We do (for the videos and some of the podcasts), but they are spread out, a subforum I think would make it easier to find the specific subject that people want to comment on. I get the idea from another forum that I frequent, where the administrator has a forum where only moderators can start new subjects, and he simply starts a new thread with every podcast release, he doesn't comment on it or anything, much like your threads for the videos, and then everyone knows where to go to comment on the podcast episodes and we don't end up with posts in the wrong forum or a million posts or anything like that. I remember a few years ago when we made the switch, it didn't seem to be an undue amount of work for the moderation team, and compliance was high and rapid, I'm pretty sure that it lowered the workload because there was no more thread wrangling.

I agree with Emerson.  I would like to comment that I really like the currently displayed video and the music.

How about this:  create a thread in this forum.  Each time there is a new thing, add a comment to that thread with a link to the new thread.

I feel like I have two groups of users to serve:  the hundreds of people active on the forums, and the thousands of people that read the stuff later, but never say anything.

Which of those groups are disserviced by such a sub-forum? Or are you concerned about people coming for one purpose and not properly crosspolinating to other parts of the forum?
