You see it a lot on forums where there are sub-forums/ sections for different regions (Scotland, North England, Midlands, South, Ireland, Wales etc.). Would mean people could post up threads that will only really be relevant and of interest to people from the same area (e.g. open days at a local dealership, traffic camera spots etc.) without cluttering up the general chat forums.

Just a thought.

From a personal point of view I like it the way it is, I read what I want to read and reply if I find the need. No need for division here. I like to hear about the things happening to all the members from all over. Lets you know about theft hotspots, track meets and ride outs, special offers and a chance to have a bit of banter with the members from the South, West, Europe and beyond.
The only other forum I am on has that regional stuff and it is a bit divisive.
I know I use a Scottish accent at times but I type slower so everyone can understand.

I think the traffic camera (sneaky bastards hiding in a bush on your favourite roads etc) section could be worth considering?

My 2p. I don't think we have enough active forum members to require specific meets sections. But maybe we could all prefix our posts which are regional?

What he said ^^

Descriptive subject titles would be a good idea for all threads (whenever I see a thread with the title "what do you think?", the author probably doesn't want to hear my answer).
