I don't mind consolidating hundreds of posts, but I'm not sure about 21,000. Both forums still see some traffic, and we're the #1 spot for Google searches for either forum. Switching it to "Icewind Dale Series" will hurt search traffic, at the very least.

I don't disagree, but do you have any suggestions for how to improve it? I either have to push all the forums to a second page (the previous method), list them as sub-forums on the main page (current method), or give them each a standard listing spot on the main page. I'd rather not go back to forcing users to scroll down through dozens of forums, either.
We could potentially do more consolidating, but I don't want to sacrifice a lot of search traffic to do it. Alpha Protocol and Drakensang: The Dark Eye are the only two I think are reasonable picks right now, and that's assuming that Alpha Protocol won't be popular with our visitors and we won't end up having a whole Drakensang series forum with the release of Demonicon and River of Time.
