New Subforum - Meetups!
« on: Wed, 03 January 2018, 22:01:12 »
Hey everyone, just wanted to make y'all aware of a minor change to the forum. 

There is now a dedicated Meetup subforum to house all future meetup-related threads and discussions.  This should help keep everyone aware of what meetups are taking place, rather than them being lost in the Off Topic subforum (or stickied for far too long when the mods forget to un-sticky the topics ;) ). 

I've moved all meetup threads from 2017 to the new forum to help get things started.  :thumb:

Comments, questions, criticisms are all welcome.  ;D

KeyCon 2018 is a meetup - will it be merged into this new subforum?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Members' personal subforums were removed several years ago.  DanGWanG used to have a great one.

Still thinking about this one... it is a meetup and likely belongs in the Meetup subforum, but it's nice to have a high-profile event that is even easier to find.  So I'm not sure what that will look like long term.

i like keycon how it is now, since it's the GH meetup, it should have special prominence

I think KeyCon could go under the "Site Announcements and Feedback" category as well. I would want it right up front as its kinda "our" national meet instead of the regional local meetup threads.
