Hierarchy Change for the HD2 Fora? Your Vote Counts!

Tons of development indeed, but everything comes at a price. As no one expected that much to be available for a single device, this forum has grown out of control. Quite possibly, this is the device with the most sub forums in the whole xda-developers site. In an attempt to try and keep the Android fora a bit more organized, you may have seen a couple of days ago that we made an announcement regarding the addition of the NAND section for development and roms.

He has created a poll to see what kind of acceptance this new setup is getting and so far, over 700 members have agreed to this new format. Do you think that this may work?
Cast your vote in the poll thread, if you haven’t already done it.
