In general, we only combine cities that form one metro area when adding sub-forums.

Also, you cannot just add up Midland and Odessa numbers, since many threads have both in the title, so you will double count them. If you do these, I think you will see where I got the numbers.
Makes sense. Thanks.

P.S. thanks for your work with this great forum. I know that sometimes Mods and Admins are under appreciated.

Are you kidding? Lubbock? There is not enough people there to make a forum just for Lubbock. Just use the Texas forum.

Before you go on to poke fun at Lubbock, let's never say never first. I'd say it'll happen eventually after the area explodes with unprecedented growth, and that's the one area that's got it coming. But Lubbock getting its own forum on C-D is still quite a few years away from happening. I think it will one day happen, but not now.

It's looking that way, jluke. It could come under a possible Waco-Temple-Killeen label. If that area has plenty of posting, then you've got a shot.

And then Lubbock gets theirs.
