    I know historically the IH IDI section gets the bulk of the web traffic here, but I am trying to reduce the load of stickies you are seeing every time you drop in. Can we try having people check in at "events and get togethers" and as the event approaches within six months of the big date, I move it back here?

    I noticed the Texas meet thread got a lot less traffic when it was first moved out of the idi forum, but with new events popping up it makes sense to have a dedicated section for these things. I think with time it will be a section that gets more traffic, just like the lounge.

    I think the 6 month move is plenty fair

    That sounds good to me also! Since we have a place for get togethers might as well use it. 6 months out is good to

    A thought..
    One stickie at top listing directions for newbs and boneheads like me.

    We all know no one reads them and just asks a newb question right off but sweeping ants is just like hearding cats so...

    do we really have a choice? i messed with the mods once and it had some long term effects LOL

    i think it is fine, but i do like the suggestion that we keep one link in the top to help keep some advertisement for activities in the high flow traffic area. some of the sub forums can get left behind or really quiet.

    that's because you threw your buddy Chris under the bus. :O Quite frankly, I would have picked a guy who wouldn't be able to hurt me as bad. But hey, maybe getting beat into a pulp gets you off..... :O
