This makes sense, I guess.
But for those of us who would like to read (and/or write) in both categories: is it an idea to put a button/link/whatever 'current' above the historical index - and vice versa?
Mmm. After that message, I noticed you can get to the general index (consisting of the two categories by clicking 'T&FN Message Board >'. So you can get there in a few clicks, thereby decreasing the need for my suggested buttons...
also, a thread in one direction naturally spreads sometimes to others, which within reason is ok. I think you should undo this idea at least for the time being. " Historical" and "Current Events" can have a big and justifiable overlap.

As a "regular" here since the beginning of the message board, I would like to second the above.
Aside from how the threads get categorized in the future...
kudos to T&FN for increasing the value of their product in the last few months. I canceled my subscription about a year ago because I felt at $44 the magazine was not reasonably priced for a few extra details of old news.
You've since added the ETN newsletter, this message board, and interesting online content like the Krummenaker journal. Not to mention some of the staff's personalities are coming out in their postings on the board.
IAAF, USOC, NCAA, and the IOC could all jot down a few notes.
