Yep - that's the answer. We don't create subforums for "vendor status" or to reward specific vendors...we only create them for organizational purposes. Once a vendor has enough legitimate conversation about his/her products, we open a sub.
So there's no specific number or else some folks try to game the rules and start new threads to increase the count. It just depends on the volume of actual content for that vendor.
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
