sounds like a bad idea - keep it all in one area.
That's how we currently have it set up (no HTD and no Screenshot Thread). The HTD is meant as a way to have specific design discussions about a particular aspect of a game's design (and yes, it could be only about your game - if it's a topic about any game and is related to hashing out simple design ideas, then that is what the "soft" TD is for).
Of course, this is just in discussion and not yet implemented, which is why this topic is here. =]
At any rate, if there is no demand for an HTD area and its activity goes no where, it might not be implemented for a while (or at all) based on the ideas presented here - not because we don't implement ideas (we implement ideas all the time, many behind the scenes development, but plenty in open view that directly affects everyone).
