Why is the Classical Physics forum now broken up into sub-fora? I finally got used to the combined version!
If we have sub-forums, I agree it should be clear what each encompasses. To me "mechanics and dynamics" is also ambiguous, since it isn't clear whether it includes continuum physics. Likewise, it isn't clear what topics should be in electromagnetism and what should be in optics. In my mind they are the same thing, probably because the topics I am most knowledgeable about easily fit in either bin. That is part why I favor a generic 'classical physics' category.There are still a number of threads in the "general" classical physics section that can be moved to the mechanics sub-category. Also, I feel that maybe "Mechanics" could be renamed to "Mechanics and Dynamics".
