Not so much when it gets bigger, just when I get enough time to set it all up.

Suggestions (serious ones!) are welcomed on how to set them up. I was personally thinking of splitting them up alphabetically by state, intoo 4 sections or so - like states starting with the letter "A" through "H", "J" through "M", etc.

Ideas?

The "by state" idea isn't any good.... gotta do it by geographic region. The southeast forum on i-club, for example, encompasses NC, SC, GA, FL, and maybe Alabama :)

Northeast, Southeast, Southwest, Northwest, Midwest, Central, Rockies.....

Just some suggestions

By state doesn't sound too bad. I know that over at I-Club, they have the NW Region forum, but that seems to be more Seattle than Portland, so all the stuff going on is a 3 hour drive away. If it was seperated by states, that might help keep things a little more local, but also lots of stuff for you to set up and keep an eye on. But I vote for states.

No really: that would be utter chaos for people trying to organize regional meets. They should be set up like someone mentioned before:

Southeast
Northeast
Midwest
Northwest
Southwest
And whoever I left out (?)

That's my 1/2c worth! :lol:

The only problem with doing it by state is.... people in Asheville (Templar) are closer to people in Greenville, SC than they are to people in Charlotte. Closer to Atlanta than they are to Fayetteville.

Grouping by states for something like this is silly... it really and truly should be region

Well, I guess I shouldn't have sid anything about state-by-state. I guess I'm just tired of 90% the regional stuff going on would require a 3 hour drive for me.

Regional seems good, but in my case, TX is a damn big state, might qualify as a region of it's own...:eek:

regional seems better because there are some places where going to another state is an option. also, places like CA with 2 major regions, Norhtern and Southern CA, would benefit from this.

What about this? It's kind of complicated, but it kinda makes sence. You could set up the different regional forums, NW, SE, ect., then inside each forum, you could have seperate forums for each state that makes up the forum. That way big regional things could be posted in the main regional forum, while more local things could be posted in the state sub-forums. Like I said, kind of complicated, but makes it nice for everyone, I think.

Yeah, but you don't need all the states...

Not like Rhode Island or Vermont and New Hampshire need their own, you could still break down the regions a bit though...

We actually have a club here. It's LERSOC. Lake Erie Region. We have people in OH, PA, and somtimes peeps from MI come down for stuff. We have about 20-30 memebers. We are kind of stuck between the Tri-state and midwest clans, so those forums don't really apply to us.

I would recommend regional. It's just a forum so if it's to far away oh well you only missed out on the two minutes of your life reading the thread. Maybe it should be mandatory for locations in the subject line so you can scan the forum for activities close to you.
