Forum Suggestion......

9 posts in this topic

Has it been thought of or suggested in the past that we have some sub-forums like under "golf talk" for regions? That way in case a group wants to plan an outing, share specials, or offer play suggestions it's a one stop shop? Also people traveling to those locations can ask questions or look up specials to help them out as well?

It could be like North Region (Wis, Minn, Ill, Mich, Iowa, Ind..... ect. or even go as far as doing individual states.

Just a thought......

I seen those, they don't appear to be utilized and you have to "join the group". I just thought maybe separate forums would be more visual.

We've had this discussion before, and I've given the same answers several times.

The U.S. is too big to make a "geographic" subset of forums useful at all. You'd either have too few (say, NY, OH, PA) or too many (Erie, PA, Pittsburgh, PA, Buffalo, NY, Meadville, PA, etc.). And people will be on the borderlines of many, or close enough to be near too many.

There's no feasible solution. Groups are the best option since at least you can create groups where there are golfers.

Groups can work quite well. Use the SoCal group as an example... since December we've met up as a group to play three separate times and are planning our fourth. At our first outing we had 10 players and this last one was nearly 20. I know that there is another group (NW PA/NE OH or something like that) that is doing the same thing.

The "Single Members in Seattle" group is full. It has a single member.

And don't forget to make the group open to anybody.  We've had members from Norcal, TX, and PA at our outings as well. :)

Thanks for the replies. I figured it was addressed at one time. There is a "hometown" section on another forum I use (ar15.com) and they break down by state. It makes it nice for organizing shoots, selling items and so on. I will set-up a group for Wisconsin and see how it goes.

Right, but for example I live closer to Columbus, and even Cincinnati, OH than I do to Philadelphia, PA. And Buffalo, and Rochester, and Syracuse, NY, too. Toledo. Heck, I almost live closer to Chicago than Philadelphia.

Breaking things down by states doesn't work very well, and even if we did, we'd have 50 little forums. Then bigger states need more forums so now we're at 80 or so, and we still haven't gotten anything outside of the United States, and people STILL have to pay attention to multiple regions.

Turns out it's much easier to create them "on the fly" with Groups, or just ask that people pay attention to thread titles or use the search fields. I think you're starting to see what I mean by how it's not terribly feasible. There are likely more golfers than fans of AR-15s. :)
