So im reading constantly on florida Forums, and it just struck me today that Ocala...of all locations has its very own forum...but the 200,000+ people that live in the panhandle dont have a single. We need one that generalizes and includes the 4 big ones. Tallahassee, Panama City, Destin, and Pensacola and their surrounding areas. I mean come on, if little ole' horse country ocala gets one, that is barely used, shouldnt the panhandle where the states capital is?


just a thought, what about yours?

The sub-forums are based upon the number of posts about the particular area not the population.

I tend to see many more posts about Ocala than the panhandle.

really? that blows my mind. I mean i guess ocala can encompass alot of small areas and possibly gainesville, but i just got the feeling that the panhandle was being left out lol.

It seems like we respond to quite a few posts about panhandle cities .... destin, pensacola, niceville, ft walton beach, panama city .... we think it would be beneficial to create another subforum ... just our 2 cents

and i bet it wouldnt be the last! I mean there is a kansas city...in two states, that are the same...Kinda awkward to me, but hey let them do as they please.


and Los Angeles, pretty sure that annd Miami need to be marked as different countries that the U.S. keeps in touch with.

There are 250,000+ living in and around Tallahassee alone.

Funny how Ocala gets it's own forum, but and entire region that includes the state capitol doesn't?
