Proposal for small Forum Structure change
Here's an alternative based on what's been mentioned so far.

Proposed Structure with reason

Key: RED = change | ORANGE = name change | GREEN = no change

Section 1. Announcements

a. Official Announcements & Forum Rules [merge of Forum Rules (1a) & Kodi Announcements (1b)]

Section 2. Discussions [new section]

a. General [moved out of section 1]
b. Hardware [new section: split from section 3, this has become a more 'heated' area and support should not be in the same section as general chat about a specific item]
c. Website & Forum Issues or Suggestions [moved from section 4]
d. Off-Topic [moved from section 5 - section 5 completely removed]

Section 3. Support (removal of "Help and" is not indicated as a name change: there's no need to have it written so many times. "Support" has been added instead to help people using mobile device viewers (think zag mentioned it))

a. Tips, tricks, and step by step guides [removal from section 1 and added to section 2]
b. Operating System-specific Support
c. Hardware Support
d. PVR & Live TV Support [name change due to some not understanding that PVR also means how they access their 'Live TV' part from within Kodi]
e. Skins Support
f. Add-ons Support
g. Supplementary Tools Support
h. View Guides in the Kodi Wiki [I feel an external link to kodi.wik would be useful here]

Section 4. Development (removal of "Development" is not indicated as a name change: there's no need to have it written so many times <- this stays the same)
a. Feature Suggestions [bumped up one place to section 3a, all subsequent items will not have an indication for a change or order due to this]
b. Kodi Application [name change due my understanding that this sub-forum is for specific discussion of the 'core' parts of Kodi]
c. PVR [name change (apart from removing "Development" due to understanding for developers of what the PVR is]
d. Skinning
additional sub-forum for section 3d - Add-on Skin Requests [I feel this would be useful for the many talented python developers who may want to request a more 'inclusive' default skin for their add-on, I believe it would also help bring in new skinners]
e. Add-ons [moved to match current structure of the above Section]
f. Scrapers
g. Screensavers & Visualizations
h. Translations & Languages
i. Team Kodi Featured Discussions (read-only) [moved due to being read-only]

Section 5. Archive (Garbage removed because it's a read-only archive section, users are not able to reply)
a. Spam & Rule Violation [makes more sense]
b. XBox Support [removal of "Archive:"]
Please read the online manual (wiki) & FAQ (wiki) before posting.
