    The sub forums between tuning and non tuning topics have already fragmented AGN, IMHO.  People are tribal by nature and I believe that more and more division is counter productive.   I think that most users will not benefit from having to drill down to find the bottom of the information well.

    It's not about division as you say. Quite the opposite. In another thread, a member posted trying to find other like-minded shooters in the Hernando, FL area. I think it's a good thing to be able to find someone in your own area and have some fun playing with our expensive toys. I also live in FL, but if a poster/member was in Colorado, there is no way we could get together and shoot. At least this way you could possibly find members in your own neck-of-the-woods and enjoy this great hobby. As another member was asking, if that doesn't help grow the sport, I don't know what would.

    I agree with you about the other sections in this forum.  All the sub forums make it very "un-user friendly" Even the For sale forum is sort of poorly thought out IMHO .  

    But to have a regional sub forum would benefit members to locate other members in their area. Or find member in areas they plan to visit. So like Keith2324 mentioned it's "Quite the opposite" !

    The idea that people can find others close to them is a good one. Instead of a bunch of sub forums, why not just put the city and state, or country, or at least state, in the avatar area like they do over on Gateway to Airguns forum. Then we could just contact someone by pm when we notice they are in the same area.

    Excellent idea, national and international.

    Not a bad idea, but for some of the larger states perhaps more regional sub forums.  I am in E. Texas, about 100 miles SW of Shreveport La.   I am almost as close to Macon Ga, where my wife grew up as to El Paso.  Other states have similar situations, ex  Pensacola, Fla to Miami, or go on to Key West.  Lets leave Alaska to residents there.

    I like the state to state idea for US members.

    If you put both the city and state then those close to a border would know where in the state they are.
