Default Should the coastal areas, Ventura,Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties have their own catagory?

What do you think?

I would disagree with this unless you could show some data that the demand is there. That could be done by counting up the numbers of threads that the central coast area has been generating. It would certainly have to be more threads than the rather derelict San Jose subforum, so at least 200 minimum. Just my opinion.

I disagree, as well. Ventura/SB/SLO, though roughly associated as the Central Coast are otherwise only loosely connected. In many ways, these counties are very different from each other. I spend a fair amount of time on threads regarding these areas, and from what I see in terms of the number of posts, it doesn't seem like it's enough to warrant a dedicated sub-forum. It's also rare that people inquire about the area as a whole, comparing, say, Ventura to SLO. Usually threads are limited to specific areas in each county. So a sub-forum for all three wouldn't add much value. MHO.

Total agree with cre8 and kettlepot. I have started practically half of the Santa Barbara threads :-). lol. I don't believe it is needed.

I think Ventura County should have their own sub forum.

a fair amount of ppl have interest about the central coast of CA and dont know "exactly" where to search? regardless of the demand or amount of "threads" on the central coast it "must" have its own category! from santa maria its 2hours to los angeles and 4 hours to san francisco, are u trying to tell me that if you live within that 6 hour drive from los angeles to san francisco you basically.......dont exist? give me a break

do u remember that movie field of dreams? heres the famous one line from the movie, "Build it and they will come."
