I hope nobody was watching to closely, went through a bunch of category iterations that mostly made no sense. But I'm finally happy with the end result: support, features, lounge, dev, and forum. I also changed things so that the categories page is now the default page.
The last thing that I'd like to do is put some "welcome" text on the categories page, still trying to figure out best way to do that without having to install a plugin since my hosting plan doesn't allow for those.
Anyway, categories should be stable now. I'll stop messing with them!
