I was thinking more like resource links. Like, "hey this supplier is really great for electronics, here is the link". It'd make it easier to find those links if all kept together under a single forum category.
I like the light hearted, fun tone of Eureka and Warehouse. I wouldn't actually consider them good as science fiction. BSG is better but the dark broodiness of it makes it so I can only handle a couple episodes at a time.
For me the appeal of forums is that you can really divide up the subjects and focus entirely on your interests. So for example I would monitor robotics and electronics but would probably ignore pretty much everything else.
