Interest in creating a Clarksville and/or a Franklin sub-forum has recently arisen. Currently neither city has enough dedicated discussion to warrant a dedicated sub-forum at this time. However, with some dedication from locals in creating and discussing threads on either city we could see interest and activity for these cities increase to the point where a sub-forum for either might be viable in the future.

So the question is how would our members like to proceed in developing discussion and interest in the developments in these two fast growing Middle Tennessee cities.

1.) The creation of two pinned threads at the top of the Nashville forum in which all developments and news about these two cities can be discussed and elaborated on.

2.) The continued creation of individual development threads on these cities with-in the Nashville forum.

3.) Other - "Fill in your suggestion here"

In regards to options "1" or "2" forumers who are from these cities and/or interested in seeing topics on these cities created and developed will need to proactively post and discuss developments in these cities in order for interest and activity to possibly develop to the point where a sub-forum could become viable. This is how the Murfreesboro forum came about, we had a dedicated group of forumers from that city who created and discussed topics about that city to a degree that generated enough dedicated traffic and discussion to warrant a seperate forum - which currently is doing very well for the size of the city.

Please also feel free to offer feedback and discuss the presented options.

This thread will stay open until next Sunday. That should give everyone plenty of time to view this thread, vote, and discuss the options.

I voted for the first option because I believe it would encourage more interest in these areas. However, smeagolsfree made a good point about having too many stickies. I could live with either option.

Not to get off topic. If this does not change, how would people feel about stickying major projects such as the Pinnacle, WES, Icon, etc.?

I think the first option is a viable on. At least we can get a lot of news into a couple of threads instead of having dozens of threads below.

I think its a good first step.

Thanks to RK for following through with this.

I think option 1 would encourage more discussion and keep clutter down in the Nashville forum as smeagolsfree stated.

My best friend works for the franklin city govt and joins in on all the board meetings so I could get news from him and relay it here. He's not allowed to discuss some things though so I can't gaurantee everything as it breaks.

Although I voted no, I know, boo me, franklin is a better candidate than Clarksville IMO. It has much more going on the The Queen City. Proud to say my Boro got its own page first, so hah! :P

Clarksville has more going on than you think. That's the reason why they are asking for a sticky thread. If we had one then you would know that. :P

Welcome to the boards paribasomw! Glad to have you aboard. Are you from Clarksville? If so that is great, as we would really like to see more members for Clarksville, Franklin, Murfreesboro, etc. along with new Nashville members. :)

The down side from starting a new subforum: I used to be up to date on all Memphis news when Memphis and Nashville were in the same thread, since the split I probably havent looked at the Memphis forum 3 times. Just because I'm usually time strapped and much more interested in Nashville than Memphis, but I guess the positives of a new subfourm out weigh the negatives.

Is this a 51% verdict? Or do the Clarksville and Franklin-ites have to pull a 2/3 or 3/4 majority to get this passed? :rolleyes:

^ Yep that is/was the final verdict. It was close at 9-8, but Clarksville and Franklin will get pinned threads on the top of the forum. :)

I think the pinned threads should do well in creating and centralizing more discussion and interest in these two cities, so their potential benefits to the forum may manifest in short order with some luck. Look for them to get created and posted in the next few days, after which I will need locals from both cities to help with regular news and discussion posts for both threads if we hope for them to be successful, draw in new members, and potentially establish the base support for their own sub-forums.

Thanks to everyone who parcipated in this poll and took part in the discussion.
