Updated thread summary (as of this edit):
In favour of a single Rockies forum:
-8 regular Rockies users (Rachel, Eric, Arcturus, Taras, Steven, Bill, Kitlope, Dieter)
-5 occasional Rockies users living elsewhere (David, zeljkok, Sandy, mick range, Kootenay Kid)
Opposed to a single Rockies forum:
-2 sometimes Rockies users (Kid Charlemagne, no quitting)
-1 tongue-in-cheek "don't take our Rockies!' comment (another jeff)
-0 regular Rockies users
-0 people with a genuine concern about that method of organisation
Opposed to any forum divisions (which is not really relevant to a discussion of how to arrange the forums as long as we have multiple):
-3 forum users (Dru, Farmer, tu)
(I have included moderate support or moderate opposition in each side)
Still, there is solid support from those who use the Rockies in favour of a single Rockies forum, with some support from visitors as well.
No-one who regularly posts or comments on Rockies TRs is opposed, though some are presumed neutral due to a lack of response.
There is only one serious opposition, with a second opposed to the way Albertas currently post BC Rockies TRs in Alberta, but which didn't seem to include a strong opposition against a reorganization.
There are a few 'I don't really see a need, but it doesn't bother me' as well.
Meanwhile, a few people oppose all forum division, which could certainly be taken up in another thread.
But in the meantime, while we do have separate forums, it would be awesome to re-assign the BC Rockies in accordance with popular support and common usage, especially with such very little opposition.
