As far as sub forums goes it's a group effort for all NY members,
1) Recruit more people for the NY forum and your area specifically. When more people post about and from your area the quicker we will get a sub forum.
2)Use the link at the top of the page and make your request and encourage others to do the same,, http://www.cityprofile.com/forum/request/
3) Sign in and encourage others to sign in on the sticky thread at the top of this forum so we can easily get a head count of who is here and from what area of NY. I could take the time to poke through every thread and make the list myself but I feel that if someone cant be bothered to sign up on the roll call page then they probably wont bother sticking around very long.
Once the posters and thread count picks up to a reasonable level for your area and any other part of NY I will begin strongly lobbying for the additional sections.
I understand the "If you build it they will come" theory and agree, but with 50 states and several hundred cities on here already you have to draw the imaginary line somewhere.
As always, suggestions, ideas and advice are always welcome.
