If creating new forums without merging existing ones is an option on the table, and the traffic to each subforum is not a major concern as linguoboy suggests, then how about creating new forums for the following:
- Sign languages
- Caucasian languages
- Uralic languages [excluding Finnish, Hungarian, and Sami]
- Slavic languages [excluding the ones that already have their own forum]
- (Minority) Romance languages
- (Minority) Germanic languages
- Siberian languages
- Iranian languages [excluding the South Asian ones]
plus changing "Creole Languages" to "Creoles and Pidgins," broadening the scope of the Hebrew forum to Semitic, and including Romani with "South Asian languages" (possibly even without a change in the forum name)?
I honestly would also be in favor of splitting up some of the non-European forums if a) again, traffic isn't a concern, and b) other users besides myself don't feel it's going too far.

The only changes I would make are:
Split Caucasian into Northern Caucasian, Armenian, and Ossetic can go with Iranian.
I'd also like to suggest:
I'd also like to see either a Neo-Aramaic or general Semitic subforum. Or both.
Also a Mongolian one.

It seems that the only language that's indigenous to parts of both Panama and Colombia is Kuna, so this division would seem to make even more sense than the division between North and Central American languages.
Alternatively, we could try splitting these forums up by language family or something (but of course that's a lot more subforums).

We can maybe link to all polls in the first page or something.
