    Default Let LEP flashlights be part of the Flashlights category?

    I was wondering the following.
    LEP flashlights are becoming more popular these days. And because they are 'regular flashlights' shouldn't they be in the "Flashlights" category?
    It currently is in the section; Beyond flashlights, and that is kind of a strange place, hidden away, with only 15 posts in 1 year. Not a place for discussion with almost nobody visiting there, and most people don't even scroll that far down anyway.
    LEP flashlights might just be the next generation flashlights that we were waiting for, after LED, and in some case even replace LED.

    How about adding it here:
    Just below spotlights, or just below LED flashlights.

    I was thinking something similar recently. Now that the tech is in a lot of flashlights, it seems fair to put it with the other flashlight forums.

    The reason that subforum is found in "Beyond Flashlights" has to do with the pre-existing forum (database) structure.

    LEP was added to Lasers at inception, which was already in Beyond Flashlights.

    I think it is reasonable for LEP to be moved to Spotlights instead. Not sure if it might be too much work, but having the "umbrella" forum be "Spotlight" with two subfora of "HID / Short Arc" and "LEP" makes sense to me.

    The latter approach would allow generic spotlight topics under the broader category, while still grouping HID-specific and LEP-specific threads.

    I don't think many are currently using LEP lights as general purpose "flashlights" since they are pretty specialized for throw.

    I think it would look good there, in with other flashlight forums. Better than it would look in other anti-virus forums.

    Just curious how this will go from here?
    Who will make the judgement call? Or do we have to vote?

    Would love to see this going forward.
