Default Board reorganization/shortening

Starting a new thread to cover this, and taking ideas from several posts:
Quote:
Announcements:
........NOTICE
(stays the same)

General:
........Lounge (keep)
........General Chat (keep)
........Your ride (move photo albums up here and delete it from 'Gatherings')
........Kill stories (keep, it'* too popular)
........Performance and General Brainstorming (combining the two)
........(move Audio and Electronics to Mechanical and Maintenance...at the bottom)
........Vendors forum (keep)
........Intros (keep)

Mechanical and Maintenance:
.......GXP/Northstar
.......2000 and Newer
.......92-99
.......87-91
.......Classics (I think we need to keep.....who knows what the future may hold)
.......Other H bodies (I agree with Don. This is a keeper....this forum draws members)
.......Forced Induction (keep for the specific issues of the L67/FI L27/L36)
.......Audio/Electronics (moved from General)
.......Detailing (new forum)

Buy/Sell/Trade
......For sale or Trade (combine cars and parts)
......Wanted (need to keep this.....critical forum for those LOOKING, not selling)

Gatherings:
......Combine photo albums with YOUR RIDE in GENERAL (it'* gone)
......Combine All North America into two forums. Splitting at the Mississippi
......All other Continents
......Regional/National Meets (new forum)

The Site:
.......Suggestions
.......Test

By Combining this way, we shorten the board by 6 forums, and add 2 more, for a net gain of 4. The Detailing and Regional/National Meet forums are added, but the board is still 4 forums shorter, and better organized.

Yes or no? We'll discuss this after member inputs in Staff, and make the final decision. Speak your mind!

2 problems. There can be no official link between the Bonneville store and BC. For legal reasons. Read the disclaimer in Complinitor'* signature.

The other problem is splitting Canada and the US. The link between the two is too strong, in fact, so strong that I believe the Missouri river would be a better division line than the Mississippi. I'd like to keep Ontario and MN linked geographically/socially. The division line I propose would be the Missouri river in the US, and the Manitoba/Ontario border in the North.

I like. Although, I do kinda like the idea of Intro being up with announcements. I agree that it makes the site feel "Friendlier"


Oh, and lounge posts should count double...

I think I prefer that photo albumbs be kept seperate from Your Ride. Not a lot happening during winter but once the meets start happening again it is to hard to find the pic locations unless they all become sticky. Thats probably the only change I would make to the above list.

I like this section left the way it is. The reason for my thinking this is that this leaves a place for just the admins/mods to pass information along to all the members of the board. Anytime there is a post in this section you know it is something you probably want to read because of policy changes, server stauts', etc... I see "intros" better fitting in somewhere like "general".
