Why not categorize homework and textbook-related questions?

  1. Jun 9, 2010 #1
    Like it would be nice to have a "logic, set theory, probability and statistics" category under the Calculus category. And, for example, a "famous physicists" under General Physics. If these homework problems were better categorized, people on this forum may expect quicker answers. And, they might even get answers from someone who is very knowledgeable in that particular category. In turn, that would increase the value of Physics Forums.

    I agree with moonman, it seems to me like a good idea

    What if we don't have experts for several forums. The those forums will actually be ignored and won't have the chance that someone casually finds a post they can help which is what we have now
