    new forum?

    howdy!

    me again! lol!

    sooooo the socal bunch is really talkative... and also really active riders! always planning new rides and talking about rides we've completed... our threads get lost in the road forum (ok... really..... we're taking OVER the road forum!)

    heck... we're WAY more active than the new "long distance" forum!

    so what are the chances of getting us our own little section of the forums where we can stop clutterin up road cycling??????????????

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree with caligurl. If I didn't live in SoCal, I'd find these many threads and dozens and dozens of posts really annoying. And when it's winter and we're still organizing rides and acting smug about how great the weather still is, we might provoke violence. . . .

    Hey! I post there too!

    Anyway, a SoCal sub-forum would be nice.

    I agree....
    ....yet take the Cool Breeze ride report thread for instance. Almost 5,000 views in 3 days! Someone's reading our thread outside of SoCal........but not posting.

    Yeah, we provide good entertaining chitchat as a bonus! It would be awesome if we could get a socal subforum.

    I would point out that putting us in a subforum wouldn't take any extra resources. The posts already exist. They just wouldn't push so many other threads off the first page of the roadie forum so quickly if they were in a separate subforum.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    LOOK!

    Hey you!

    I just started a thread in the Mods corner how to best split up regional forums.

    I have a few forums already created, but I'm going to make sure everything look right before I turn them on publicly.

    Look for something new tonite.

    Thanks Joe. Now the whole world doesn't have to wade through our ride planning. We can just point them to pics and ride reports afterward.

    Joe or a mod... a suggestion...

    Perhaps we could have a stickied thread in the roadie forum for a few days so that people are aware of the new forums. Kind of like lotek's stickied, locked thread informing people about the saddle trade thread that was in the roadie forum for a while.

    I'll be putting up a global announcement, as well as starting a thread in that forum.

    Love the new sig
