Changing Get Togethers to Regional Advice (POLL)
« on: Jun 28, 2007, 12:59 am »
I'm thinking that the Get Togethers forum could be put to better use.  I was thinking of repurposing it to "Regional" with subforums for the areas of the globe with the highest representation.  The Regional forums would be only readable/postable by registered members with at least one public post.  (This would allow folks to do some naming of names.)

I have my guesses as to what areas people are coming from, but I know we've lots of readers that don't post a lot.  My site stats don't really reveal geographic info.  If you're in an area that doesn't appear above, feel free to suggest another region.  I'll probably wind up doing subforums for the top five or six areas and let the rest float in the general pool for the time being.

Comments? suggestions? hate the idea? let me know!

Australasia? Or are we being counted as S E Asia?

Anyway, as there's about three of us, I dont suppose it matters much! Could be a nice idea Kay. Unless the actual get togethers are being organised off screen in the end, this forum dosen't seem to result in many actual get togethers...

I believe now Australia, American Samoa, Fiji, Kiribati, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, Vanuatu, and Western Samoa (which used to be called Australasia) has been re-delegated to Oceania... The PC Police strikes again.

(Go Auzzie Go!)

Ack! Can't believe I missed Australia/NZ!  Bad me.  It was in the original list but some how got truncated.  I will bear in mind that at least two "other" votes were supposed to go into Oceania.  The option is now there.  (Thanks for the proper term, Mac.)

where would you consider Philly? i think that it's big enough to warrant it's own designation.

RE: Philly, Alaska, Hawaii - vote "other" and mention your location here in the thread, just as has already been done above.

OK, the new board has (finally) been created, so I'm locking this and destickifying it.  Go check out Regional Advice, y'all!
