    Default New Powerboating Subforums?

    Hi folks,

    Quite a while back we were asked to start a forum just for owners of Glaciercraft boats. What are your thoughts about some additional similar subforums for other brands, where you could discuss rigging, issues, and so forth? Is there a need to do that here?

    Thanks for your input!

    Hell no........... it's hard enough to find what subforums someone has posted information in now with out adding more. Instead remove the ones that are not used.

    I agree 100% we don't need any more brand specific forums.
    They just make it harder to find info or help people.
    I also agree It would be nice to eliminate some of those rarely used forums.
    The ask a trooper forum has been dead forever. That one needs to go for sure.

    Why not put your programming effort into making the site more user friendly by upgrading the search feature so that someone can easily find a subject and then upgrade the upload feature so that it doesn't two or three tries to upload pictures?

    If any are added there should be one for Wooldridge since they make the best boat.

    If you have to do some maybe separate ocean boats and river boats... But I like it the way it is.

    I agree with JR2 if a big if there was to be another boating sub forum I'd like to see River boats and ocean boats separated. But not needed imo

    No. I can usually find what I need with the Search function and if I post a question and the answer is elsewhere someone usually re-directs me.

    I haven't used this site as long or frequently as many others but why delete unused. It is still searchable knowledge that would otherwise be lost. Instead fix the search.

    X2, the number of sub forums on this site is ridiculous...

    Another vote to stop the Balkanization, less forums is really more when it comes to keeping a steady flow of information.
    Those that are successful in Alaska are those who are flexible, and allow the reality of life in Alaska to shape their dreams, vs. trying to force their dreams on the reality of Alaska.

    If you have a tenuous grasp of reality, Alaska is not for you.
