I'm looking for information about Northern California, (not Sacramento and San Francisco or San Jose)... I know there are threads for Arcata, Ureka, redwood type areas, as well as Crescent City, etc.

At what point and who decides that a subforum would benefit those who come here for information? Is there somewhere else I should ask this question? thanks,

You pose a very good question and one I wondered about myself. There are people I am sure who are interested in Northern California above San Fran so why don't they have more information about it? Maybe posing this question to a CD Moderator might help. I know that I would like to see more information about the area.

We've tried in the past but there is not enough interest. SF and SJ forum counts remain low as well. The admins have said they do not like fragmenting the boards into subforums too much. However I think it is funny that the most populous state in the country has fewer subforums than North Carolina

Wow that surprises me Sassberto, I agree with you it does seem funny we do have less sub forums. TYVM for answering the question!

Thank you for the reply... now how many of us (including me) are going to go check out the NC forums to see how many subforums they have?

Sometimes I think that there is less activity from California forums because we may not have the harsh winters that keep others inside and active on forums.

I'm surprised that Fresno doesn't have its own forum.

or Fresno/Central Valley or something.

very true, it does seem like Fresno/central calif is very different than any subforum option listed as well as the far north part of Calif (that I'd like to see that represents Arcata, Eureka, McKinleyvillet, etc) not being represented so people know where to post questions for these overlooked locations

I suppose if someone added up all the threads, and the posts in them, that focus on northern California, and the total was at least 500 threads and 5000 posts, you could make a case to the Administrator for a sub-forum. But realistically, you would probably reach those numbers first for a San Joaquin Valley (Stockton-Fresno-Modesto-B'field) subforum. The North State is the poor cousin of California, and always will be.

kettlepot I guess northern California is the poor cousin but being from San Diego County I visited my dad that lived in northern California ( a little town called Igo close to Redding) and found the northern part of the state to be beautiful, and of course my favorite place Lake Tahoe. It is a shame really people don't seem to be as interested in the the northern part of our state but then again it is probably how the people who live there like it.

Please add my request here also, for adding something like a North State (what local public radio calls this area) sub-forum to the list of California forums. The Sacramento sub-forum is now as far north as it goes, and yet that currently leaves out over a third of the state, stretching all the way up to Oregon.

Ideally a North State sub-forum would capture not only all those communities along the so-called "lost coast" north of SF & Napa......Medocino, Ukiah, Fort Bragg, Ferndale, Arcata, Eureka, etc., but it would also speak to the Northern I-5 corridor of Chico, Corning, Red Bluff, Redding, Mount Shasta, Yreka, etc., plus the many mountain communities on either side, Clearlake, Susanville, Paradise, Grass Valley, Tahoe, Weaverville, etc.

Although even Craigslist currently has dedicated sites for many of these areas, just look at the map and it's a huge portion of California that's still curiously overlooked by C-D. Dunno, perhaps it's just a case of "build-it and they will come".... Thanx!
