OK senior admins... I was thinking some forums could stand to be merged in certain city/state forums. For instance, there is Chicago Suburbs subforum in the Illinois forum, and then there's a separate Northwest Indiana subforum in the Indiana forum. Why two separate threads when Northwest Indiana is a part of the Chicago suburbs? Why not merge the two of them into a Chicago Suburbs/Northwest Indiana forum and provide a subforum link to it in both the Illinois and Indiana forums? On the same lines, maybe rename the St. Louis forum the St. Louis/Metro East forum and create a subforum link to it from the Illinois and Missouri subforums? How about a link to the Kansas City subforum from the Kansas forum as well? About 40% or so of KC's metro area is in Kansas. Same goes for linking the Cincinnati forum as a subforum in Kentucky (maybe rename it "Cincinnati area"?).

I believe it's technically possible in vBulletin for a forum to exist as a subforum in more than one parent forum. If that's the case, perhaps certain forums should be linked as subforums to more than one state parent forum.

IIRC, it has been suggested in the past but was dismissed by some members. It is possible technically, yes, that's how District of Columbia is presented on the main forum page.
