This poll will be open for three days. This proposed sub-forum would likely include Calvert County, Charles County, Frederick County, Montgomery County, and Prince George's County. Whether to include Anne Arundel County, Howard County and St. Mary's County is an open question, but we are leaning against it. Please feel free to comment.

Honestly about 45% of the threads about MD concern Baltimore and its suburbs, 45% concern the D.C. suburbs, and about 10% are everywhere else. If you separate out the D.C. suburbs, the main forum will become a ghost town.

I actually think more people will come to the forum and post--I know I will. I've seen many questions about MD suburbs ending up in the DC forum, and never know where I should post.

Not really, if the forum for the Washington, D.C. suburbs leaves out Howard, St. Mary's and Anne Arundel counties the main forum will still be active.

While many people from the three counties commute to DC everyday, Howard and Anne Arundel share its suburbs with Baltimore also and St. Mary's is too far out to be considered as a DC suburb.

There really needs to be a separation for the Eastern Shore, which is physically separated from the rest of the state by the Cheseapeake but doesn't have a large city.
I'd suggest, in additional to the Baltimore forum, adding subforums for D.C. Suburbs, Eastern Shore and Hagerstown (western Maryland).

Absolutely!....you could have a forum for Baltimore and the surrounding suburbs (e.g., Towson, White Marsh, etc.) and one for DC and the surrounding suburbs (e.g, College Park, Silver Spring, etc.)...I definitely think that would make a huge difference.

I'm thinking the same thing. However, if activity picks up it could make sense.
