I'm curious what city other then Chicago and the Chicago Suburbs deserves its own board.

More or less a forum similar to the one for Chicago or the Chicago Suburbs.

Seems like the Quad Cities should have been on the list, considering we're larger than many of those communities.

None really are in need of a separate board...

Perhaps boards for larger geographic areas (central IL, southern IL) might be more appropriate...then again, that might wipe out most of the main board.

Maybe but not many people come on here seeking information about the Quad Cities.

A couple of months ago I lobbied for the Rockford area to get its own sub-forum because it seems to generate more traffic here than any of the other areas but my proposal was rejected by the powers-that-be.

I think a central IL forum would be nice.... but that would really clear out much of the main forum... plus there would be a little ambiguity in what is central vs southern.

I do think that MSAs that are split across states (such as St. Louis or Quad Cities) should have their own forum that is replicated under each state that the MSA is in.

Default A different board

Instead of a one city board, why not regional boards? Western, central and eastern Illinois, for instance, area as much different from each other (as a boat, a bull and a baseball are different from each other) when it comes to services, shopping, entertainment, events and thingd to do/places to go.

Just a thought....
