Default Sub-section name.

I'm wondering if this section name should be changed to "Pentax SLR" only. Since Pentax and Samsung no are no longer collaborating?
Canon 60D, EF 50 f/1.8 II, EF 85 f/1.8 EF-S 10-18 f/4.5 - 5.6, EF-S 18-135 f/3.5 - 5.6, EF 24-105 f/4L, 430 EX II

Pentax K1000, A50 f/1.7, M135 f/3.5, A70-210 F/4

We have a separate forum setup for Samsung NX system now, and leaving the forums the way they're setup now (Pentax / Samsung dSLR) would allow any existing Samsung K Mount dSLR owners to find a resource here for discussion about their cameras and lenses (as that discussion really doesn't belong in the NX section, which is using a totally different lens mount); and some of our members do have Samsung models like the GX10 and GX20.

Just because Samsung may not be making any cameras using the same lens mount right now doesn't mean that there are no longer any users of them (and again, we do have members using some of those cameras), and because the Pentax and Samsung models using K Mount lenses are so similar, it really doesn't make any sense to have a separate Samsung dSLR forum for the models that use K Mount lenses. ;-)

We made the same decision with regards to Konica Minolta and Sony dSLR models (combining them into one forum), even though Konica Minolta is no longer in the camera business, because they share a lot of the same technology and lens mount system and it wouldn't make sense to have two separate forums setup for them. For one thing, the more forums you have for models using the same lens mount system, the more scattered the posts, making it harder for members to find information about making better use of their cameras and lenses, and to share information with other members.
