    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.
    I get pretty tired of seeing a response like, "this isn't about one person". You're right, its not, but the suggestion wasn't about one person either.

    Now don't get me wrong here, this isn't that big a deal. Obviously its been covered before and more or less decided it wasn't needed. I know nothing about sub-forum sprawl and what sort of issue that presents. I just know that if I'm on Whiteblaze and I want to see a forum about a specific shelter in GA, I can look in that state or regional sub-forum. I like that.

    I agree that perhaps a stab at standardizing the titles might work better.

    p.s. is anything ever implemented without consideration?

    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy
