I was wondering, what are the merits of state teams having separate forums?
I looked through some of the state LoCo forums and noticed that there are primarily two kinds of threads:
1. Meeting announcements -- you hardly need a forum for that, mailing lists do nicely.
2. Threads that should be in a different forum for various reasons. Most forum threads just aren't intended for the small specific audience of the LoCo team. Some should be in the cafe. Some are looking for project ideas, and I think that those also should get more attention than just the state teams, and thats one thing the NU team and its forum are here for. There are also threads in multiple local forums asking what a LoCo team is.
I think that extra forums for each team in the region just spread out information for no reason, and most things posted in local forums are either actually aimed at a wider audience or aren't really discussion topics. The MA team has decided not to get a forum for now. What do you think, do state teams need to each have their own forum here?
