The moderator usually answers your request. He said "no" to a Lubbock request not long ago. Maybe he's just not consistent?

Yea, I hope you guys get a forum, but I don't believe the decision will not be biased in some manner just because Lubbock has tons of threads all over city-data, and they haven't gotten a forum yet. I don't see what the problem with creating a forum for any metro area over 400 - 500K is. Even if there isn't a ton going on in the thread unless the administrator has to pay someone, or pay something in order to create it. It seems like a site as large as city-data would have it's own programming specialists, but then again there are not fees charged, and no advertizing in here, so I will not argue...lol.

I also can't stand when the general forums like "Texas" are overcrowded with Lubbock, Waco, Corpus Christi, etc... threads. It's one thing when you see something like Palestine Texas once or twice a year, but the other large cities without forums have multiple threads weekly...... Go take a look at how inactive some of the other cities from other states are in city-data and tell me what the argument is!???? Cities as large as Oklahoma City sometimes go an entire day with 3 - 5 posts......

I think it's ridiculous that places like the Tri-Cities of Washington and Kingsport-Johnson City-Bristol, Tennessee have their own forums. If you look at their forums, they're lucky if they get one post a day! I think a group of cities like Lubbock-Amarillo-Midland should be in a forum; they should be fairly active.

Thank you el borracho. When I joined this forum, I thought the states would of been split up by various areas. If you have ever driven across Texas you will see a map in its rest areas. Hill Country, Pan Handle, Gulf Coast, as examples of parts of Texas. I think that would of been an ideal way to set up the sub forums. That way no one city feels left out, and you have communities of near by cities chatting about things that effect all of them. I dont know.. I dont own or run a forum so I dont know the ins and outs of such a venture. I am sure the people behind this forum know best. I was always told it does not hurt to ask, so I asked. If were lucky the Corpus area will get a forum.

I remember once, one of the Mods said that they were making a CC forum and it should be up shortly. But that was 2 months ago or so.

A Corpus Christi sub-forum is coming soon. Sub-forums are added based on the number of threads on the forum, not based on population numbers.

The Corpus area is more then just the city center, we have Portland, and Ingleside, Robstown, and Rockport all in this area, and not far off is Victoria. We could have all of these in one forum.

The gulf coast is growing, and it would be nice for all of us coasters to have a place to chat and not feel left out.
There ya go! Looks like CC is getting that sub-forum after all .
