    The local forums have be realigned and renamed to "Regional Members" to US regions and Canada, every state now has a home, I figured if the NFL could do it a few years back then so could CK5. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Well, I understand the reasoning and organization logic. But, in all honesty, I'm going to miss the tightly focused AZ forum. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif As others said, it'll just take some getting used to...

    What, I can't please everyone /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif The Texas and AZ forums really didn't change much except for the forum title, if you look at the other states that are now included, they don't have a real large following, but I do understand because you were used to it a certain way. I think in the long run it will benefit CK5, everyone now has a somewhat local forum to them without us going to 50 state forums.

    I actually don't mind the change and I think it makes sence. If I was a new guy here I would be stoked to find a way to contact new folks in my serounding area. What if you needed help with someting several 100 miles from your home, like maby a really good sale on some BBC parts but had now way to jump on it cuz you were so far away?
    Just thinking out loud.....

    I think it's good, less of a 'club thing' and more of a regional focus.

    If I had stumbled across this site as it is now I'd be all over this place partly because of the regional forums. It'd make it a lot easier to find like minded people in my area...

    Besides, now there's a place to talk about Tim Horton's coffee, Hockey and good beer, as well as K5's. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    This is probably one of the best upgrades done in a while. Getting rid of the clubs and such gets rid of a lot of the little "clicks" that kept many members away from them in the first place /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif IMHO

    It will take some getting used to (to quote marv "grrrrrr...") now there is ice racing post in the old AZ forum. What the hell is ice racing /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
    I understand the logistics, and can accept the change.

    I'm lost /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif, really sorry to see our forum gone /forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif....., us AZ guys are kinda tight /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    But, I do appreciate being able to use the bandwidth /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif, and since we don't have any expense to use the site, and forum, I can't really say anything. I'm not the boss, you are and I understand, and still appreciate it just don't like it /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif.

    I still say thank you very much for the bandwidth /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.
