So the "Garden Insects" section includes isopods, snails, slugs and worms, which are not actually insects. Additionally, that subforum is under "Specific Insect Keeping", so maybe you should change them to " Garden Invertebrates " and "Specific Invertebrate Keeping"? I know that wouldn't go with the theme of " InsectBoards", but I just thought I'd bring it up.

Yeah at the time I wasn't sure how to go about this. Some people recommended I stick with that for people that don't now a whole lot about insects and are here to ask questions about insects in the gardens for example. However I am definetly up for changing this as it kinds if bugs me too. Let me think on this how I could change things around so they are technically correct, but a person that doesn't know a whole lot about it can understand.

And invertebrate zoology could cover anything invertebrate that is not specific to insect keeping, field observations and a host of other events that could be used at times. Down this way the garden can host a huge variety of species of invertebrates (example nematodes and mites) if people are interested in other types.

Sort of confusing to me since invertebrates are listed in off topic.

I got some free time coming up this weekend. I should be able to add,edit, and fix some boards. How about some recommendations? Maybe a completely new section? I am up for some changes.

Perhaps make a section for "Non-insect invertebrates", that would cover all invertebrate groups outside the Insecta. Also just noticed the arachnid section is under " Specific Insect keeping" as well, perhaps you should change the "Specific Insect keeping" to Specific Invertebrate Keeping.

Just my opinion but 75 percent of the topics are listed as specific insect keeping. Nothing wrong with keeping, but why not list the sections as the study of and keeping insects. I study insects and sometimes keep a few, some are live views and then tossed out, and I keep a few dead ones for study.
Any other opinions?

Hisserdude, I just changed the category title from Specific insect keeping to, ( Specific Insect and Invertebrate Keeping ) and changed the forum that was titled, (garden insects) to ( Garden Insects and Invertebrates ) I am considering splitting up, invertebrates and insect into two different categories, but I am not sure as to whether it is necessary or not.

Insect Rod, I added a category for (The study of Insects and Invertebrates) with the forum, invertebrate zoology below it. Let me know If you think of another topic that would fit under that category, (that would be used)

I think since you have added this category, "the study of insects and other invertebrates", the category invertebrate zoology would not be needed since this would cover either and would be easy to use. Make it less complicated and just remove invertebrate zoology.
Thanks,
