Just curious, should there be a suburb sub-forum for Dallas? There are many that really know the Dallas county area inside and out and those that want to know about relocation to the suburbs - more so than the Dallas area. I think there's room for both. What do you think, or has this been tried before?

Maybe you can convince da jammer to propose a sticky for this. That'd probably be the way to go. It's not a bad idea; in fact, it's great for those who are new to the area and want some 'pointers'. We can certainly give people great ideas.

Great idea. People talk about moving to Dallas and then mention the suburbs. That really makes some people go crazy! No names, I'll be nice.

No. Why does that need to happen? Los Angeles County has only one subforum and has more cities in it than in Dallas County, yet it only has one subforum.

It isn't needed.

I will say that the admin is VERY receptive to the wishes of the members and truly bends over backwards to accommodate whatever great ideas you folks come up with. I think the best way to go about this would be to start a poll in the Dallas forum to see what kind of feedback is generated. Keep in mind that sub forums are not created without a great deal of thought and a certain percentage of traffic, activity and interest must exist before consideration is given. The goal is to keep the forums as easy to navigate as possible while providing ideally targeted information for those seeking it. BTW, I will say that I applaud the folks that continue to hand out excellent thoughts and advice...over and over again...to the same queries that are posted here in this forum. I know that it can be somewhat exasperating on occasion but y'all come through every time and I know the peeps appreciate it

We've thought about doing this before... have a sticky with thread writeups for each community... but, the list is soo long for just the Dallas metroplex (30+)... and all the OP's seem to want to compare one area to the other... or recommendations for three or four... so I can see where this could get out of hand and cumbersome very quickly!

In addition, you KNOW if we had one, then Ft. Worth would want the same... then Austin, Houston and San Antonio... and then... and then... whew, there'd quickly be a multitude of lists across the states!

In the end, I'd be willing to bet that all the newbies would STILL ask the very same questions... all over again... because, as they've stated before... "it's just so much easier than having to search". Really, 'though, I think it's just that each one of the newbies honestly just like the personal answers to their very own question (thread)... and, no matter how many different ways it's been said or answered before... THEIR question hasn't been answered directly TO THEM before and nothing else will do.

So, I've resolved to just keep coming up with creative ways to describe the color green!

Personally, I would miss my Lakewooder to much.

I suspect Lakewooder would just visit the suburb subforum and promote Lakewood. My 2 cents... I'd rather keep Dallas as a metro and not see it fragment. It ensures that posters get diversified input and not just from people that drink their local kool-aid. After all, people have a vested interest in saying their neighborhood is the best.

I'm probably a minority in this one, but I'd rather see Dallas and Fort Worth merged. Some people come here asking about Keller, and some people go to the Fort Worth one to ask about Plano.
