OK, great ideas with the "Meets" and "Locations" sections guys. How do we want this implemented?

Under General?
A new category?
Do we want one for Meets and another for Locations, or one for both?
I was thinking we could add a "Regional" category, then "Meets" and "Locations" under that. I'd prefer to avoid actual regional forums (IE NESIC, MAIC, TEXIC) until absolutely needed just because I hate the way great threads go unnoticed in them if you're not from there (like the photo threads in regions on NASIOC).

Suggestions on how to implement it?

The concensus(sp?) seems to be to add a Locations & Meets forum as one unit, at least for now.

I'd say put it as its own forum under General.

I wouldn't worry about any other additions for now. And I agree about the regional forums, I'd prefer them as down the road as possible... I don't think I've ever gone to half of 'em on Nasioc.

my only issue is meets and locations have 2 very different subject, so why lump them together? But I can easily make them both under general and see where it goes from there.

Anyone against having separate meets and locations?

I figure I can split it and or make a category for it later if we feel the need.

I personally want separate, a meets forum and a locations forum.

Others just seemed to want to lump them together when I suggested it.

But yeah, I'm with you... separate.

Either way, I think the initial idea of combining them was to make things more active, however since the whores(myself included) are multiplying there may not be a need.

How are they different? We're meeting at a location.

Location: Hey everyone, this is a great place to shoot!
Meet: Hey everyone, let's meet here because this is a great place to shoot!

I say keep them together as that will generate more traffic for a single forum.

locations would be like trip reports and good spots to shoot specific things.
meets would be about getting together with other members (possibly at a location).
