    Region Forums

    What different forums such as Pacific, Eastern, etc... to know who's in your area. From there people from say Vegas can keep in touch and notify other in specials, where to buy stuff... etc.
    this would be great... no?

    Not that it's a bad idea but we already get people complaining that we have too many forum groups as it is.

    Any update on this idea. I think it would be good so you could arrange get togethers and keep in touch, get support etc. from people in your area.
    What's everyones thoughts on this?

    I agree w/ adding a regional forum to MOL. People that complain are just . I checked the MOL Frappr Map but didn't see anywhere on there where you can post messages. I'm not knocking MOL Frapper as I think it's cool, but I believe the benefits of a regional forum outweigh the complaints.

    What do they expect with all of the products available through Meguiar's? I joined within the past month and have learned a wealth of information. Just need to look and use the search function.

    Please add regional forums.

    Re: Region Forums

    Hmmm....

    Would someone like to suggest what the region titles would look like?

    Re: Region Forums

    For starters or something along the lines of the following.
    MOL Regional Forums
    1) United States
    a) West, b) East, c) South, d) North
    2) Europe
    3) Asia
    4) Others

    Then for specific subforums for 1a would be NorCal, SoCal, PNW.

    Just some thoughts and ideas.

    BTW, Mike, how many moderators are there? If it gets too hectic, maybe you can assign/ask frequent members to moderate subforums.

    The biggest problem is balancing this request with complaints from people there are too many forum groups.

    Check them out...

    The list

    Part of the problem is we make a lot of product that are for very different markets and thus have their own "Product Line" category. That along with so many different aspects of this industry.

    So balance is the key and I'm not sure how heavily trafficked regional forums would be, that said we're always open to suggestions and improvements to the forum.

    Re: Region Forums

    If some believe there are too many already, they should hide the ones they don't want to see? That's what the arrows are for.

    Re: Region Forums

    Okay, what about adding a beta regional forum under Off Topic and testing that for a few weeks/months. If it's a hit, create a new Forum or keep it under Off Topic, and if it's not just delete it.

    Re: Region Forums

    I can see both sides of this issue and lean slightly towards the regional idea. Would be great for discussing local problems such as weather and economical conditions facing detailers specific to their region. Forming local classes or get-togethers would be great. I understand this can still be done with the existing format,but might simplify things somewhat.This is still the detailing site that I frequent the most and will still be here no matter what is chosen.
