Can we get a section of this forum where there is actual region sections like Mid Atlantic, North east, South East, So Cal, Nor Cal, etc...

Sounds like a great idea to me.

Good idea. Better for getting people together for events in a certain area and organize the place a bit better.

The more people that like this I think will give it a better chance of happening. I don't know why this hasn't happened before.

I think it will help organize a ton, I thought about this a long time ago but a recent spotted thread popped up and I said this is why this forum is a mess.

It would help if there was a sticky on searching this forum with google.

Have the option to always edit posts (at least be able to add stuff after the time limit runs out to edit the main body) this will help for sale threads with multiple items that can be updated instead of adding to the post at the end.

There is a lot more that should be changed to make this already awesome forum for knowledge a little less unorganized.

Also, we don't need a Buellpartsguy section anymore.I actually emailed Jeremy about this not long ago and he said we would lose all the threads as well so it was best to leave it.

I like the idea but I think there are only 5 of us in the NW?!?!

Only 3 in Oregon I am aware of... maybe 4


Edit:What about showing members location under their name on posts?

I would say both because it is way easier to find threads of meets and and other things going on in your area if it's in your region section

Hahaha... I didn't even know that forum existed.

Keeping track of 2 is enough for me. I have to get work done occasionally while sitting at my PC. ;)

I like the regional section idea, but with the rarity of these bikes, having location under your name, as some have mentioned, would have to be general (i.e. Central Indiana or just Indiana). If I put where I lived in a public area, I doubt my bike would last long (in my garage, at least)

+1 on the longer timeline for editing

I started on buelletinboard but there isn't much new going on over there, I have bought a good amount of parts there. This forum is much better because the amount of people that frequent the site.

On other forums that I use (car forums) there is a location spot in your settings that you choose what it says.

Not long after I joined this forum I recommended listing where each person was From under there name so you can immediately tell where the posting was coming from.

It was quickly shot down with a reply, 'just click on their profile And see where they're from.'

It may not be exactly what you're looking for, but if they can't do the regional thing, it may help a little. Save a few clicks anyways.

The regional thing would be pretty tough for places with few riders and may take away from the "community feel" of the board. I like Netty's idea to go with having your location under your screen name or something along those lines. Not many people have their location in their profile and its too far out of the way to check it.

Even if it just had a mention under your name of what region you're in instead of state

This wouldn't be for all threads started lol it would be for coordinating with members of your area riding, modding together, just easier to keep track of these things in one place...
