Implementing your suggesting would definitely not make any difference and this suggestion is definitely not realistic, in being that it's a pointless suggestion.
Considering the section/sub-sections are also generally more active then you say they are, this suggestion was definitely not worth suggesting.
Someone had a bad day
The Music General has 35,000 posts while the two subsections have 8,000 posts together. The Music General is 4 and 1/2 times bigger then the two subforums. It should be treated like a forum, in proportion to how more active it is then the others, and NOT a sub forum.
How is it not realistic? You make the Music General sub forum a forum in the Music forum and keep the two other forums as sub forum.
