I'm perplexed by this, and it bothers me, but for no good reason other than it just seems off. At first I thought it was because there are no child level forums under Africa, but there are also no child level forums under Antarctica, ME, or Oceania either and none of them display this way.

What say you FT/IB tech folks?

I've wondered this too. It might be something we can change to be like Asia and Europe's, with that country list in the header.

This is how it's been set up. There are no countries listed in africa, just threads. This is unlike the other destinations. It would just take a lot of work to try to create all the country subforums and then manually break up all the threads into those countries.

Why not just do it the same way Antarctica is? FlyerTalkForums > Destinations > Antarctica > Antarctica. For whatever reason, Africa doesn't have its own sub-forum within it, all the others including Antarctica, Middle East and Oceania do despite not being broken up into country-specific sub-forums. Pretty easy fix and threads shouldn't need to be moved, even if they do, a simple select should do the trick. The Africa forum isn't active enough to break it up more than that, though it does seem like most of the threads are Southern Africa centric.
