WTF is up with the Private Meet Section?

Ive noticed lately and for a while now, that the Quebec/Gatineau/Ottawa section of the private meets area is just a local forum for these guys.

I keep seeing new threads in there, wondering if it is a meet and I click to find that it just says Merry Christmas. Seriously, it is annoying and I haven't seen any thread get moved to the approriate forum.

Can a moderator please check this out, as I don't like going to the private meets section for a Merry Christmas wish, or to read that bmdbley'sBro is getting OWNED, or even that there is a new guy.... Also, who the hell is Rob and why do I care if he disappeared?

Please, someone stop this forum section's blatant disregard for its use in the meet/event area.

I guess you could call it that...


I dont wanna rain on their parade, but its annoying to see these new threads, and I click out of interest and it has NOTHING to do with a meet or event.

You're right, though.
I could see if we had 100,000 members here but were at what, around 10k? Not enough to seperate it into mini forums.

But then again, it's ironic the Quebec section is seperating themselves just like they want to do from Canada!

Why would you be interested by a meet thread in the Gatineau/Ottawa section anyways, regardless if it's about a meet or something else??

I know I don't click on any of the threads in the private meets section other than the Gatineau/Ottawa section because it has nothing to do with me.

So yeah, just let us talk amongst ourselves. You're invited to join in the discussion, of course.

I dont see anything wrong with it. Maybe a change in section title in the near future, so that way it's not necessarly for only meets.

If it is the most recent thread, it shows on the main page of the max forum index. Hence, I click it, to see if maybe it is a meet or event I can join.

Good idea. I think that's a good compromise.

Just click on regional meets, and then Ontario. It's one extra click, I don't think it will kill you Josh.

Leave the Ottawa/Gatineau/Montreal boys alone, they've got the poutine! don't make them angry.
