    We know some of our regional forums are somewhat vague and cover large areas - and we've also been a little strict with what has been allowed to be posted there. That will be changing. If you have a good group of DSMers in your area and would like to have sub-forum that you can call home here on DSMtuners, let me know. I'll open one for you. In return, we just ask that you spread the word and help make it active.

    We're going to be putting more of an effort into making our regional forums more useful for locals with features and resources that you rarely find on local forum sites. If you have ideas on how we can do this, send me a PM. For now, we're loosening up our policies and will be allowing local classified posts and more off topic chatter. We just ask that you keep all tech discussions in our Tech forums for others to benefit from and follow our basic Site Rules posted here:
    DSM Forums - FAQ

    Reply to this thread and suggest your own local sub-forum. We're following the Craigslist strategy of opening forums around major metro areas as opposed to states. So the structure will be Region > Metro Area. You can look at the Great Lakes region structure for an example:
    Great Lakes Region DSM - DSM Forums

    So please, we've opened the sub-forums, start participating!

    My plan is to get some feedback from you guys and then open a few obvious sub-forums, like I've done so far. Then, we'll wait for people to request them after that.

    I see that Cleveland was opened in the Great Lakes region, so scratch that off the Tri-State one.

    Will this reorganization of the regional forums be reflected in the "regional home pages", ie. like the Midwest region? Also, the drop-down at the top of the site only presents the old list of regions, as does the View All Regions page. :)

    Once I have a certain number of sub-forums added, I'll address the top navigation. The regional homepages will likely be changed or done away with depending on how well I'm able to integrate most of those features into the actual regional forums. The new regional forums will likely have all of the same aspects of the regional homepages, making them useless.

    So I've gone through and added most of the major metro area sub-forums to each region. Let me know if I missed any of the big ones. As for the smaller metro areas that are not very close to the larger metros, we'll wait to see how much participation we get from people in those areas - that will help dictate the need for more sub-forums (along with the requests).

    We're now going to be looking for moderators to help us organize these new forums and help spark new participation in each regional forum. Let me know if you'd like to be involved. I'm also going to start opening new calendars for each metro area so that locals can post new events for their local area and have them show up prominently in the new forums.
