    Most people are simply posting the same thread twice.

    Ideas on what you'd prefer?

    Well, there are differences, but does cause some confusion as most themes now are being made for the OS6, not just for the iPhone 5 so I guess combining them makes more sense.

    Merge them

    And add options to the thread with iOS versions and iPhone version just like you can choose between winterboard and dreamboard now.

    So that the thread name will be:

    Winterboard, iOS4-6, iP4+5, themename
    Dreamboard, iOS5, iP3, themename
    Etc...

    And add filter options to the whole thing so people can choose their preferences.

    Personally I like how it's separated. It makes sense. What doesn't make sense is the double up of thread posts as you have outlined.

    I suppose there is no way around the double up of posts tho if the 4/4S and 5 sections are kept separate.

    Maybe it is easier just to have them merged all as one???

    To me this seems like it will only get more and more obfuscated as options come out. I'd like to thing of something less cluttered.

    Yes, I'm thinking this may be true. I'll look through some options on how to do so cleanly. Probably we'll have to do something custom.

    I think that if a theme is available for both 4/4s and 5 then it should be only posted in 5 and something showing that its available for 4/4s too. Maybe not sure if it will work out.

    Why not break it down by Retina vs Non-Retina displays?

    I like Tim's idea, I just was about to ask someone about this cause I don't want to make 2 posts. Is it possible to just have a post show up in both forums but only one thread? If not I say combine them and make it a prefix like Winterboard and Dreamboard
