    Group,

    In my opinion the Classic are is listed incorrectly in regards to categories and lists. While the data is mostly all correct, we have most of the early Macintosh models listed under "Macintosh (Original series)" and a separate section with Performa and Workgroup servers.

    In my opinion if we separate the Performa series and Workgroup servers, we should also separate the rest of the group. In most cases when someone states "Original Macintosh" in the collector discussions that would most always only include the compact Macintosh models like the 128, 512, plus, and perhaps SE, Classic, and Color Classic models.

    I seriously think we should move these "other" categories up one level and list them as follows to make it more clear, and concise.

    Example

    68K Desktops

    Macintosh (Original series)
    Inside this link would list...
    128k​
    512k​
    ETC..etc..etc..​


    Macintosh II Series
    inside this link would list...
    II​
    IIx​
    ETC..etc..etc..​


    Macintosh LC series
    inside this link would list...
    LC​
    LCII​
    ETC..etc..etc..​


    Macintosh Performa Series


    Macintosh Workgroup Servers


    I think you get the point of were I am going with this. My only point for bringing this up, is due to the fact that we are getting lots of categories with nested sub categories. We should first create a hierarchical listing that is flat, and nest within that detailed information containing the specific models within the noted series.

    All that needs to be done is to have the Macs that are not part of the "original" all-in-one series (128k, 512k, Plus, etc.) moved up in the heirarchy so we have

    68k Desktops

    Original (I'd include the SE, SE/30 and various Classics in here as well)​

    Macintosh II​

    LC series​

    Mac TV​

    Quadra/Centris​

    Performas​

    Workgroup Servers​

    I would think that's the most logical layout.

    That is exactly what I am getting at.

    Perhaps my detail made it confusing to follow :( . But I am 100% with you on this. :)
