Making a seperate forum for Des Moines, C.R, and Iowa City would be a waste. There's not enough posting going on to even remotely justify it. The 3 cities combined have less population than say Portland, Oregon.

Well, I was thinking it would be the Des Moines area, and then all of Eastern Iowa in one as a previous poster said. I don't know if I would go as far to say it's a "waste," just because it's slower doesn't mean it's worthless.... a good reason would be that it's easier to find info. for people who are relocating, without asking questions dozens of others have asked. But I agree it's fine the way it is.

You need to have the volume to justify creating a new sub-forum first. I don't see one Iowa city in particular receving enough "love" to warrant its own sub-forum, although I suppose a Des Moines one couldn't be so far-fetched. I can't believe someone suggested an Iowa City sub-forum. At that rate let's just make one for Keokuk too! LOL! If you want sub-forums, then start kicking your fellow Iowans in the pants and get them yapping!

Earlier this month I contacted the administrator about having a Des Moines subforum. He/she said there weren't enough Des Moines threads yet. I guess I'll try again next year.
