When every little thought gets its own section/thread it kills the flow and dialogue. Those local forums are like a spreadsheet for doing research. Winnipeg has a good thing going. We have for years. Just leave it. It works well. I see no benefit.
Me neither. It will turn into a bunch of bulletin boards with narrow topics and no conversation. The forum used to be about discussion -- I wouldn't want to see it converted into an over-organized Wikipedia.

The only way that this is fair is if three subforums are created: Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Regina.

90% of the threads are Winnipeg related so I don't see the big fuss. It will look the same. Just without the three Saskatchewan topics going on. I'm all for it.

Saskatoon and Regina only account for a small percentage of conversation in this forum and do not merit their own sections at this point. Winnipeg dominates by a wide margin which is why the suggestion is being made.

Yeah. If change is needed for the sake of change. At least leave a thread like 'Winnipeg Construction' so there can be a place for the free flowing discussion that makes this forum interesting.

I don't get why we need a topic for every development. There are not enough to warrant that in my opinion, but I get that people want to feel as important as everywhere else and for whatever reason dividing it up appears to do that for some people.

I hope it doesn't ruin a good forum for no perceptible reason.

It shouldn't be an SSP local, but rather a sub forum like there is for Edmonton. That would be the best, IMO.

^ 2 options available if a change is decided upon.

Examples: Vancouver/Calgary layout or Edmonton/San Antonio layout. Vid did mention a link with only construction/development separated for the City in question. Interesting suggestion.

I agree with you but this is probably the closest thing we are going to get for a while long while. Also to all the people that think the forums will become to much strict we just want the Winnipeg forums separated from Saskatchewan's nothing else.

Yeah, this is all I thought it was about -- just one extra level of organization to keep the Winnipeg threads separate from the Regina/Saskatoon threads. No change to the threads themselves.

There is already. It's called the the Manitoba & Saskatchewan forum.

We could easily avoid splitting altogether if we used discussion icons for different cities, similar to what they do in the general construction section of the forum.

^^ I agree with the Edmonton style. Vancouver's is just a mish mash.

If we "hide" the Winnipeg topics into their own section what is left will be a relatively inactive forum. As much as Winnipeg having its own section makes sense I think we need to keep the status quo to help prop up the other areas.

If you took the time to look at this forum's thread listing and went through top 20 threads on it right now, there are 11 Winnipeg threads, 7 Saskatchewan threads, a general mixed thread and this thread.

I'm not sure how 55% suddenly turned into 90%.

And I never said giving three seperate subforums was a good idea, all I said is that's how it would be fair, given the three major cities within this region. I voted No to the poll because the volume of threads in this section doesn't deserve subforums.

I don't care what happens, but being curious I just counted this forum and 39 of 50 threads on this page are Winnipeg related.

Just leave it. No reason to change. I enjoy seeing whats happening elsewhere, not just in Winnipeg.
