In all honesty, it's probably time to crank down the off topics, but I can't really tell you if anything is wrong.
My only thought might be that you further seperate the politics room and create an off topics room. I guess that's the underground.
I don't see any reason to split the board up any more.
One thing however, it seems hard to find the last post. When you click on last post, it brings you to the last post.
Read first unread you have to know what page your supposed to be on.
What am I doing wrong? Do I just go to page one and click first unread?
