Wouldn't the Mahamudra forum be better places in a "Meditation" area along with the Dzogchen forum and perhaps have forums for Shamatha, Vipassyana, Tonglen, etc. as well?

just a thought?

Mahamudra is more than a single meditation technique, while "vipashyana" covers a very big area. That's why I don't think so.
