There is, after all, a separate city of Kansas City in Kansas. Which raises the question of why there isn't a Kansas City sub-forum for Kansas, does it not? Perhaps an idea whose time has come.
I think the best solution would be for a Kansas City sub-forum link to be under Kansas too, just like it's under Missouri, but with both going to the same sub-forum, this one. That is if the forum software will allow it.

As someone moving here 15 years ago from another part of the country, I reflexively chose "Missouri" when checking for suburbs of Kansas City, knowing that all across the country when there are cities on the border of another state you always look under the state where the main city in the metro area is located. That being said, the Kansas City metro area has many national people confused, as I sometimes had to look under Kansas for Kansas City suburbs that were located on the Kansas side. For the sake of consistency it would be easier to look under one metro area and not split it into two regions. For example, if I was coming from out of town and wanted to decide where to stay or go to dinner, I would hate to have to do two searches for the KC area rather than just one, and it would make sense to me to put it under the state in which the largest city in the metro area resides.
