If the West Coast (with what, 6 states?) can have 3 forums, then the east Coast should have at least the same...
I think New England/Mid-Atlantic/Southeast makes sense.
People would have an easier time visiting multiple forums if in a border state than digging through many messages related to issues 6 hours or more driving distance away...
When I just looked, the first message relate to PA was the 11th down the list.
I think that it also makes sense to include some states in multiple categories... For example, Virginia could be in both Mid-Atlantic and Southeast...
But, for historical dividing lines, I think there are relatively obvious dividing lines:
6 New England States = New England
The rest of the current Northeast forum would be Mid-Atlantic.
Everything below the Mason-Dixon line would be in Southeast.
This would lead to a few states being in two different forums, but usage would dictate over time where someone in those border states preferred to post.
