I don't want that to happen, as I said, the idea of having a 'Console' and a 'Handheld' board is just weird in my opinion. Plus, both of them are just so different as it is.
If I did decide to use the Sub-Subboard code, then I would suggest that we have this (this is the only way I would group it like that): -Consoles --Wii --GC -Handhelds --DS --GBA -Retro --GBC and GB --N64 --Virtual Console --SNES and NES ...
Or something like that, but at this point I think we should just leave it as is. Nobody can really come to an agreement (what do you expect, everybody views the classic things/older things differently. Some want it shown, others want it combined).

At this point, Im just saying f**k it do whatever the f**k you want, I dont give a d**n anymore. But if you even think about combining the Gamecube and Wii forum, I will get even more pissed. Don't you dare even think about that! I will NOT let that happen, EVER
It's not all about you Cube, it's picking what is best for the forum. You're thinking about yourself, not the forum. Here are the facts:
1) GC is NOT the current console of Nintendo. 2) Wii is backwards compatible with GC. 3) The GC and GB forums have little activity, which is one of NA's down points.
The suggestions are not attacks on you, but they are suggestions for improving the forum. If you're going to debate, give some sort of reasoning as to why it would not benefit the forum, not because of your personal vendetta against the Wii. For goodness sake, they're game consoles.
Can't make sub-sub forums without a code It's coming though in PB5.
There is a indirect way of doing it in IF and Zeta, though I'm not sure about PB. What you would do is:
Put 'Retro' on the index. Then make GC and GB subforums. The make Retro a subforum of 'Game System Discussion'.
It might work, but not 100% sure.
Heck, you could also make an invisible category with the console forums inside. Then make a redirect forum that links to the invisible category.
-Consoles --Wii --GC -Handhelds --DS --GBA -Retro --GBC and GB --N64 --Virtual Console --SNES and NES
Seems like best way to go about it, though like I said, you can't split the retro board 'just yet' because there simply aren't enough topics there to spread around.
I'm still thinking that we should just kinda leave it as it is... there is just too much conflict about this right now. Maybe later down the line, once equipment changes or something, things may change. For now, I guess we could just leave things as it.
More of organizing by shelf than shoving into a closet. But it appears many go straight to the lists and not the explanation because I said that we can't have Sub-Sub boards without a special code (or until PBv5).
But as I said, for the interest of keeping this site from becoming a swear house and relations going bonkers, now is not the time to be moving things around with the way that everyone views the past.
All the systems are just as good as the one before (everyone just doesn't think so. Like me, I despise the Wii because its just not Nintendo I feel, and of course I think the motion sensoring is a bad idea. I don't wanna have to point at the screen throughout the whole game.). They all deserve to have the same equality. Yes, I know there 'just game consoles' but they don't deserve to just be grouped into 'Current' and 'Retro.' We can't forget our past! >_>

To some degree I am like you but I still like the Wii. The motion sensing is just a gimmick to get people to buy Wiis. I prefer to play my games the way they are supposed to be played like the dawn of video games, joystick and/or d-pad are my motion sensing controls and sitting right in front of my TV.
