I was wondering, does anyone feel the need for separate forums for Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and perhaps even the Florida Keys?

More sub-forums would be nice, but four is probably easier to control. We all know how things can quickly get out of hand when dealing with John Q. Public.

Fort Lauderdale is too close to Miami to separate out.

The four cities chosen as sub-forums; Miami, Orlando, Ft Meyers, and Jax are the same ones the weather channel uses when generically talking about Florida weather. Aren't these four the major airports in Florida?

Could be better is the sub-forums are renamed by areas rather than cities. Can accomodate more info from a region that one city...

I had suggested that the first split of the Florida forum should be on regional lines, not city.

I was ignored and now the question is arising again.

Southwest Florida could stand as a separate forum. Miami and Miami-Dade have to stand alone because of the special conditions. Broward County and Palm Beach County could be lumped together, or could stand alone, but then we risk getting into too many regions and the whole thing becomes unmanageable.

I suppose Orlando represents central Florida, and the Tampa Bay region is big enough to stand on its own, as we already have.

I suppose Jacksonville represents northeast Florida.

What about the panhandle?

The Daytona area, the Space Coast and the rest of Florida also seem to be floating out there by themselves.

It can become too hard to manage, but for the moment it may be worth considering a southwest Florida sub-forum and possibly also a Broward County-Palm Beach County sub-forum.

Good luck garnering consensus on this one.

Default Fort Lauderdale forum

Yes, I think Fort Lauderdale should have its own forum. If this is not feasible because we're so close to Miami, then maybe the Miami forum could be renamed as Miami/Fort Lauderdale?

Fort Lauderdale and Miami are *very* different cities, in many ways.

Just a thought.

The Miami forum mostly gets treated as the "South Florida" forum... they should rename the forums by regions like that.

Agree. Suggestion, initiate a thread in //www.city-data.com/forum/about-forum/
about renaming the Florida sub-forums by regions. I think that is a better approach.

It would be a good idea, at least to separate Fort Myers from West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale. Fort Myers is on the Gulf Coast and (SWFL) and West Palm and Fort Lauderdale are on the Atlantic Coast (SEFL) but I think that the forum has a Fort Myers, Cape Coral section already. Good idea though.
