Hahaha.... thats good.
Do you find the forum to be quiet and inactive?
- Do your part by engaging in new and old topics
- Don't wait for others to start NEW topics, post one yourself
- Invite family, friends or critics

Education?

You mean, like, Q&A, discussion, or books and resources list?

Not sure why it would require a category, there probably aren't going to be much of them. Why not post it where it also fits (Atheist/Vegan Support Forum or Off-Topic Discussion).

Well for example where would I place something like "Natural Selection Explained" or something of that nature.

Never mind I've come to the conclusion that it isn't necessary to have a category for that at this moment

Occam's razor: Less is more. :)

I was actually wondering if Science and Technology should be merged- or if computer stuff is more like general chit chat and should be merged with off topic.

Any thoughts?

I just didn't suggest it because neither seemed more intuitive than the other. But if one or the other turns out to not be very active, a merge of the two least active of those options would be good.

We're down to a pretty manageable number now though.

I agree. What about dividing it into a serious off-topic discussion category and a chit chat category (so not specifically science & technology)? The off-topic category is very mixed at the moment between serious and non-serious.
