Default Central Coast forum or separate coastal county forums

What do you think would be better - a Central Coast forum or separate forums for each of the involved counties including Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara?

I think I would prefer a Central Coast forum to discuss all things related to the Central Coast which covers a pretty large geographic region in California. But honestly I would be happy with either. With a state as large as California it's very easy to get lost on the other general political threads, etc... when someone really just what's more specific information about this region.

I vote for a Central Coast Forum. The PCH drive binds them together, lol. A part of me wants to keep it a secret.

One single Central Coast Forum because even combined, those sub-regions don't seem to generate a ton of City-Data threads. It would be sufficient for a new thread to have that sub-region's name in the title. Besides, I think the CD administrators are reluctant to create too many forums. It took them years just to get the Ventura County Forum started.

Interesting, it looks like the majority so far like the idea of a combined Central Coast forum.

I wonder if other states have used this type of regional geographic designator rather than the typical county approach?

Edit: I just noticed a pattern used by some states. They take the name of three neighboring counties or cities and call it an area like: Huntsville-Madison-Decatur area. But The Central Coast is such a well known region in California I don't think anyone would mix it up with another part of the state like above San Francisco or below LA for example.

San Diego's moniker should be LoCal. I'd never heard of Diegoland, but don't mind it.
