I don't think anyone was suggesting breaking up this forum into smaller sub-forums.
It's more about informal sub-classifications.
It's like with the pump forums, everyone knows the difference between open class and stock class (as well as modified stock, bolt action, lever action, spring feed, and on and on). They exist together just fine, but everyone acknowledges their differences.
Pretty much off the bat this particular forum started out this way. It's even in the title, Mag-Fed and Milsim. One is a technical classification of a feed system, the other a play style. Plenty of overlap in that venn diagram, but Non-Milsim Mag-Fed has already be discussed, as well as Non-Mag-Fed Milsim.
You could almost break it down to 4 overlapping informal categories. Mag-Fed, Military gun aesthetic, Military dress, Milsim style play. All appropriate for this particular forum. I've known enough players to say I've seen players who go for all at once, many who'll do 3 out of 4, and some who go for just one of the four. Heck, knew a guy who'd go all out on Military dress, but shoot a PMR on a speedball field.
