I agree to a western slope sub forum.
Speak for yourself. I like to read about a good murder every now and then.

No western sloper sub forum till we get a Pueblo sub forum.

The major commonality between Fruita and Limon is that a lim(e) is a fruit.

That's exactly what the "Colorado" forum is for-- for discussions about the rest of the state outside of the Front Range. Denver has its own forum, Colorado Springs has its own forum, and unfortunately, Boulder and Fort Collins have their own forums too. True, a lot of internet illiterate people post Denver questions in the Colorado forum, but they usually get moved to the right place within a day. The smaller you keep sectioning off forums, the less people will bother to visit. You need a certain amount of "action" to keep a forum going-- otherwise instead of daily discussions you'll end up with one post a week, if that.

Words of wisdom, and right on the money! I don't know if this is accurrate or not; it seems like the Colorado forum in general is LESS active than it was two or three years ago. Perhaps Mike has the numbers to validate it one way or the other.

As I have said, I've seen it before, more subforums and it just kills the traffic. I think it's because you end up with so many forums to check and so many split conversations you eventually throw up your hands and call it quits. I think a forum can benefit from a certain degree of organization such as breaking it off by states or main topics, but more than that is asking for it.

Well its hardly sectioning off a smaller area when its really the other half of the state.
I dont necessarily mean Western slope in general, but rural colorado would be great....Not everyone wants Front Range.

IMO there is no such thing as a good murder, even in a case like Osama Bin Laden. Although I'm glad to see the s.o.b. dead, his murder was a throw back to the outdated concept of an eye for an eye. How little mankind has actually evolved!
