I want to post my idea to the "Ideas" subforum, but the problem is most topics in that section seem to be mostly solo projects.
See, I also want to post to the "Recruitments" subforum so I can, well, recruit people for my project.
So my question is: should I make two separate topics and link them together (ex. "go to this link for the recruitment page") or should I make a single topic on one of the two subforums?
Also, if the latter is the best option, will my topic be moved to "Works in Progress" if my team eventually produces a demo?
It depends on how far along your idea is, so to speak. If you have just begun to work on it, then it may be prudent to continually update a thread in the idea section until it's fully fleshed out. I say this because recruitment threads aren't typically accepted unless your idea is thought out enough that it's justified to recruit people. For example, my project was begun last year but was nowhere near fleshed out enough for me to even consider recruiting, and now I'm working on creating enough of the story's first draft so that when I do begin recruitment we can immediately jump into just creating the game.
I'd personally suggest first generating interest in the idea through the Ideas forum, unless you have enough of the necessary info already set in stone that it's fine for you to begin recruitment. If not, then definitely post in the Ideas section first. Also, I believe that you could easily ask a moderator such a Taleweaver to move your idea thread to WiP once it is in active development.
