For many years I have tried to nurture multiple cascadia forums and ... well ... they, as a group, just don't seem to do well - so I'm gonna try to consolidate them into one and try it that way for a while.
Since my ultimate destination - hopefully in the next few months - is the rockies (shooting for near missoula), I created a regional forum "rockies".
I've also been getting a lot more interested in woodland stuff. Specifically Ben Law's approach. I feel that that is really under represented here, so I created a new forum called "woodland care".
Anything I may have overlooked with all of this housekeeping?
I don't know. it is a great idea and there is certainly alot of value in regional information but i'm afraid everyone will get too spread out. maybe people from the nw wouldnt' even think to look at my posts in the southern regions even though they had plenty of useful information to offer about some issue or question I was having. I think its great that most if not all people put their location in the text picture box so we know right away what region the expereince is coming from. i'm picturing a few lonely people in each regional forum it would be awsome if there were already a gazillion people posting but its just not quite there yet. we could each form our own little regional community at some point. this is timely. I was lamenting the other day that I couldn't find a good forum that was for our area and its particular issues. the few I found had such terrible formats that they weren't useful and were down right annoying.
