START HERE - How to propose a new forum

New forum requests are common. The following procedure explains how they will be handled from now on.

1. A new forum may be proposed by any user with at least 100 posts. Please give us detailed information so we can understand your request. Use this form to guide you. See an example request here.

2. Once your thread has generated 50 replies from other users who agree that the proposal is a good one, compile the list of names and inform an admin or moderator. The site management will review the list and most likely call for a vote.

3. The administrator will create a thread with a yes/no poll attached to it, and will announce this thread in the appropriate area. The poll will be held for at least 10 days, and it must gather at least 75% "yes" votes.

4. If the vote passes, the new forum will be created but put on a probation period for at least 30 days. During this probation period the forum will be monitored to see if it is being used. If the forum proves to be unsuccessful, it will be removed.

5. If the vote or the probation fails, the process will have to be started over, but no sooner than 60 days, please.

Please note that the site admins may decide to circumvent the above process, if the idea is particularly strong.

Please note that this process is not applicable to forums to be placed in the Clubs, Regions, or Vendors area. We generally approve such requests without any voting.

Such forums are requested by simply posting the request in Site Suggestions / Complaints.
