Thanks for saying so, it's really good of you, but it seems there are at least a few people who are seriously unhappy about the new sub-forum, and I feel it's something I need to acknowledge: It's regrettable; I had no idea all of the technologies dealt with on the forum were so similar and so closely tied, and that the existing membership was as small as it seems to be. I feel like I screwed up and I want to be accountable, and I am trying to get stuff put right; it's just it's not easy to do, because the admin/moderators are so busy and I don't have the permissions/privileges to do it myself.

Absolutely by all means be as awkward as you like
...that's what these threads are for.
...but joking aside, really it's not being awkward: the more input and feedback we can get, the better...it's absolutely what these threads are for and we need to hear from people.

I thought it might be a good idea to have a separate sub-forum for game profiles; it seemed to make sense because it wasn't central to the technical side of things and could be a place to make lots of game-specific stickies. I was also concerned that the existing users might be unhappy with the current profiles forum being dumped into a catch-all sub-forum...
...but it seems (if the current feedback is an indication of the general feeling of the membership) that people just want it all merged into one single sub-forum, game profile posts included.
BlackShark actually wants that too, and posted those sub-forum title suggestions as the next best thing, if
we can't get the existing sub-forums merged.
Personally I still think there's merit in having a separate sub-forum for game-setting stickies...? ...even so I'd go with the consensus, but: ultimately that's not my decision to make anyway...? ...I'm just gathering opinions/suggestions/wishes/wants; we just have to gather as much feedback as we can and see how things pan out...

Yes and yes: Neil has messaged me re. the Nvidia sub-section, saying it can absolutely be sorted out once his work-load has cleared (mid-November onwards)...
...I've messaged him back saying that between now and then, I'd try to get a consensus on how people want the new sub-forum titled. I've also passed on to him the feedback re. people wanting everything condensed into a single forum.

Absolutely 100%, although I was hoping that cybereality might be able to affect some changes this week, but it seems he's as preoccupied as Neil. It's not for want of messaging cybereality that the the changes haven't been addressed. :/
Cybereality has messaged me saying he doesn't mind re-naming sub-forums, but that he's reluctant to merge sub-forums. I responded saying it should be okay to merge the new sub-forum into the existing drivers forum, because it's only a week or so old and it was added as per a request I made...but I'm yet to hear back from him. I have my fingers crossed (in hope) that he might be able to roll things back for us before mid-November...but all we can really do at this point is wait and see.
PLEASE KEEP THE SUGGESTIONS, FEEDBACK, OPINIONS, WANTS & WISHES COMING...EVERY LITTLE HELPS...
...THANKS IN ADVANCE.
