I can agree with splitting into New England vs the Mid Atlantic, but nothing more. It takes me long enough to post one write up, let alone two unsure.gif

Agreed...I'd support New England and Mid Atlantic splitting. Nothing more though.

Just to chime in here... I live in CT and can deal with being considered NorthEast even though technically its New England but if I was living in Maine, Vermont or RI I would think differently::: so with that said here's what I would do....

Simplify...Eliminate Mid Atlantic:

SouthEast: NC, SC, GA, FL, TN, AL, Mississippi, Louisianna
NorthEast: VA, Maryland, Delaware, PA , NJ , NY
New England: CT, RI, MA, VT, NH and Maine.

My reasoning also being the way winter storms affect the states by elevation or path of systems.

Season Snow Totals: Avg=27"
2010-11 - 64.5"...(60" Happened in 4 weeks)
2011-12 - 14.0"
2012-13 - 46.8"
2013-14 - 65.3"
2014-15 - 61.5"
2015-16 - 29.9"
2016-17 - 39.6"

I'm generally not in favor of breaking things down further. But, if you do decide that it's the best way to go then I have a suggestion. Keep things the way they are in the forecast threads but when it comes time to open up observation threads then break it down into the newer and smaller regions.

ChsChargers09 - Please be aware that there is a significant chance I was being sarcastic in the above comment. Thank you.

I am HUGELY in favor of splitting New England from the Mid-Atlantic. The current threads are completely dominated by MidAtl/NYC talk 95% of the time, and that momentum keeps the NE chatter suppressed. It's very hard for the NE posters to get a word in edge-wise, so many don't even bother posting. The only exceptions are when the storm is a NE only, or when the storm has already passed by NYC (and even then it only drops to 50/50).

I personally feel like second-class citizen here. I would like to suggest that maybe the reason it appears that there isn't critical mass for NE-only threads is the simple fact that they don't exist. I bet if it was tried out for 1 big storm, it would be hugely successful.

From what I have seen at other weather forums, I would say the biggest problem with splitting is the "us vs. them" mentality, where people from other areas get into bittercasting mode or are accused of "invading" the other area's thread. But that can be controlled by the moderators.

I really like the vibe and moderation level of this forum. Whoever is in charge, kudos to you. OTOH if I ever do find an active forum that has dedicated New England threads, I will probably leave and go there.

I know noone wants to split states, etc., but in my perfect forum world there would be a SE Coastal Region starting in the barrier islands of VA (Chincoteague, Assateague), continuing down the coast along 95 and east. I know it is totally unrealistic and will never happen, but a girl can only wish!!

But in general, I think having region-wide subforums and then threads dedicated to the "mini" regions (S. Mid Atlantic, NJ, whatever) located within would be helpful, but only once the event goes to Obs phase.

Don't try to argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level
and then beat you with experience

If it is that unbelievable... it is probably too good to be true!
