From: POLL - Chapter forum segmentation
One of the things we'vebeen debating behind the scenes is how to make the most relevant content for each region in such a fashion that gives everyone the flexibility to access all the information while keeping it hidden enough so you don't have to scroll thru things. In other words, quick access to relevant information with the flexibilty to find other, not as relevant (but important) information should you want to.
A prime candidate is the location database and help wanted forums. These are both great forums but we've heard from many members that it should be segmented. I also realize that many people may not care so much and all I am hearing are the more vocal folks. So, to try and get a better feeling for how important this is, I've got a poll asking how to best segment it, if we need it done at all.
So, the choices are specific to the help wanted & location forums.
Do it by permissions. It means you ONLY see your local area content and cannot view anywhere else. This is the cleanest option but you won't see anyone elses stuff - bad if you want to travel.
Do it by folders, so each chapter or region will have its own sub-forum. Good for seeing info outside of your area but when we are at 100 chapters, it may get unwieldy and more changes will be needed.
Don't do it at all
