    I find more difficult when it is named "xoutxzc" (no such thing, but it could be) If people would name it with the state and park as the name, it would be easier to find when doing a search for a particular state hang, and easy to look up with the park name. Also adding such hangs to the calendar is extremely helpful for others.

    AScott and oldgringo are quite right.

    It takes a few seconds to scan through thread titles to see if a hangout appeals to you. If one does, subscribe to it or keep an eye on the thread.

    If it's too much of a burden to read thread titles occasionally, chances are you're too lazy to physically attend the event anyway.

    I think its a bit offensive to say one might be lazy because they are suggesting additional sub-forums. I know you're mostly kidding, but its really not funny if someone is trying to make a point that another way might be better for them. I think its fine that folks have pointed out how easy it is to subscribe and check things that way, but that still doesn't mean its the best way for everyone.

    Frankly, I would prefer to subscribe to a GA or SE sub-forum than to have to sift through stuff that doesn't apply to me - not matter how "easy" that might be.

    For now, let's see if we can make the current format work while we look for a better solution for tomorrow. Good suggestion though.
    I ran an animal transport forum - divided into regions;

    NEW ENGLAND STATES: VT, ME, MA, CT

    Northeast; RI, NJ, NY, PA, MD

    Southeast, Midwest, Central, West
    and so on with states

    CANADA had its own section..

    as far as other countries; simply call it OUTSIDE U.S

    that would be about 7-8 subforums
    or make it less sub-forums by dividing the Northeast & southeast at the mason dixon line



    my 2 cents

    RI should be listed in New England because to reach the state you must drive through Connecticut or Massachusetts.

    They're called "weiners" in Rhode Island and you are supposed to order them "all the way". I spent 2 years learning to speak to and understand people in Rhode Island; they have their own version of 'English'.

    Part of the problem is this is not a localized (USA) forum; in membership, nor participation. Yes, the majority is currently US based, but that has been changing fairly quickly over the past couple of years. Last thing we want is 3 pages worth of subs covering the exact same topic with the only difference being location, which as has been pointed out, is exceptionally simple to place in the thread title for quick and easy searches.

    This isn't about one person. It's about the forum at large. We have to decide what's best for everyone. And not everyone agrees that subforums are an improvement.

    A forum is an imperfect place to plan events by its nature. It is conversational by design, rather than a place to publish information. Dividing the threads up into smaller sections won't improve that. It will only make it harder to see all of the information in one place. There are numerous reasons why that's undesirable, not the least of which is sub-forum sprawl..which is one of the way forums become wretchedly cluttered as they grow.

    The best compromise is actually something similar to McRat's suggestion above, where there is a standardized naming scheme to the threads that starts with the country or region, state, and date. The moderators have and are talking about that. But it's not something that will be implemented without consideration.
