    State Specific Forums

    First, yes I stole this idea from another forum, so don't bash me. Is there any way we can have state specific forums? Like maybe under the verified section? I have been told we can have subforums under a forum. So have a section for State Forums with each state listed under it and maybe a section for the Fed's. Anything think this is a good idea?

    Not a good idea, in my opinion. Can't see the point.

    We have thought about it before, MIB. Just not sure if we really need it, ya know? Kind of nice when we can all get together and share stuff instead of trying to segregate and become overly specific.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    What Australia? Yes that sucks. They speak and spell properly, drive on the correct side of the road , have a great country and turn up on time for any wars that happen along.

    I could see that working if you get a LOT larger, which may happen the way things seem to be going.

    Once you get 50-100 or so cops from any given State, it would be nice.

    bigger yeah.. i could see it then but for now...
    it works fine just to post 'anyone in FLA' type of things
    and it all seems to work out fine
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Nice comeback! However, you still lost, we're bigger and stronger, and we call a sausage a sausage! And over here, "Lifts" are what little guys put in their shoes to try to be one of the big guys. (Somehow seems appropriate to this "debate" doesn't it?)!

    I voted yes in the poll, but only qualified with "once we get enough coppers for every state."

    Perhaps a regional forum instead? Northwest, Southwest, that sort of thing.

    Core blimey, y'all know Melbourne has been voted the most livable city in the World about 5 times this decade already.

    The Economist Intelligence Unit's livability survey report said Vancouver, BC, Canada and Melbourne, Australia, "with low crime, little threat from instability or terrorism and a highly developed infrastructure," were listed in the top ten. Australia's other major cities (Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth) all claimed positions well inside the top ten - strengthening the idea that Australia is one of the most livable countries in the world.
    Pittsburgh Voted One Of World's Most Livable Cities - Cleveland and Pittsburgh were joint thirty ninth in the EIU survey. WTAE-TV Channel 4, The Pittsburgh Channel, claims
    1= Melbourne
    1= Vancouver
    3 Perth
    4 Geneva
    5= Adelaide
    5= Brisbane
    5= Sydney
    5= Montreal
    5= Copenhagen
    5= Oslo
    5= Zurich

    LAST ~ 130 Port Moresby, PNG
    So size doesn't matter then!!!

    Some other words that can get you the wrong thing or a blank look.


    Biscuit ~ Cookie
    Jam ~ Jelly
    Chips ~ Fries

    Take away ~ To go

    And all your food (US) is so sweet, even the dry biscuits (crackers) are sweet.

    I could see regional... But what I can easily see happening is the open or general give & take disappearing. That, or the state-specific being unused.
