Since I've been getting so many criticisms on the newly-widened Seattle sub-forum that now includes all of King County, I'm going to run another poll.

Those of you who remembered the discussions previous to this may recall there was no real consensus. All the emails and PMs I received from members even makes it more difficult because there are so many opinions on what should be done. The Administrator has restricted some of the suggestions and has flatly refused to do others. So please keep this in mind. My hands are somewhat tied as to what can be done. For this reason, I'm not going to list of all the possiblilites that could be voted on. I'm only going to list the most logical. The eastern Washington sub-forum has been nixed by the Administrator.

Keep in mind that the U.S. Census Bureau considers the Seattle Metropolitan MSA --officially titled "Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, WA"-- as all of King, Pierce, and Snohomish counties. This is further broken down in sub categories or micropolitan areas of 1) Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA and 2) Tacoma Metropolitan Division. Again, the two combined is commonly referred to as the "Seattle Metropolitan MSA."

The problem is do we want discussions on, say, Wallingford or Madison Park, in the same sub-forum as Marysville or Lakewood? It sounds like most of you do.

Let's take a vote. I'm not saying that anything will necessarily be changed but let's see how everyone feels.
