Wow! I wouldn't ever expected such rush in a small problem, that I posted! :] OK. In few words...
I strongly support the idea of extending rights for moving posts between topic groups to a bit wider range of users. It started with jacmoe post, but it seems that many other sees a requirement for such thing. I think, that with more people having this ability (of course, if it can be separated here from other admin-like rights) we could simply have more hands to clean the mess, we have right now on the forum. And if someone, who gained this right, would be doing to much wrong movements or would be generating even more mess, then higher level admin would be able to simple take back this right from that person.
And for the forum creation I asked for. For me personally, all the questions related to CSS / JS / jQuery and even CHTML, mentioned by mdomba, are purely view-side questions (you don't use these in controller, model etc., right?). So the idea proposed by samdark of naming that forum "Client-side development questions" sound very good to me. But to be honest, any other idea would also sound good to me - i.e. anything that would allow to post such question anywhere else than in PHP General for Framework General, because I found these the most wrong places to post in.
And finally -- Mike: no problem for hijacking thread, as long as you talk about something important. And your idea with splitting main forum for general and advanced questions sounds also interesting. The only problem is an ask to samdark's question. Who and basing on what factors would decide, which question is or isn't advanced-level? Many things advanced to me would seems so obvious to you, dev team members or other experienced users, that you could laugh on me asking for that, right? :]
