I'm sitting here trying to figure out the logic behind what I already felt was a pointless action. GoJetz gets a subforum for their one or two threads and 600 pilots but Skywest doesn't.

This one gave me a laugh.

Chill.. I think they're working on it. They aren't done making them all. Skywest, Republic and others haven't been made yet because I believe they're making them in alphabetical order.

It seems subforums are being added alphabetically. They all used to be there but there must have been technical issues. Nobody is picking favorites bud. They said it would be a few days to get everything ironed out.

I'm not a Skywest guy. I just think making subforums is silly and even more silly that only certain groups are represented. There is maybe 30-50 GoJet posters here? This is going to completely choke the regional forum.

They are going in alphabetical order and are not done. Thirteen of the 25 airlines will have subforums. The criteria is any airline having 500 pilots or more will have their own. This will cover 95% of the regional pilots. I believe they are still working on PDT, PSA, Republic, Skywest, and TSA. The moderators have indicated their target is to have them all created by the end of April.

And what like 6 TSA posters? Just let it go.

Omitted there will be a 14th subforums, "Others" that will cover the 12 other regionals that comprise 5% of the regional pilots. What will be left will be the general topics, not specific to one airline.

This seems like an unnecessary over-fragmentation of the population on here, although it might cut back on some of the people who troll airlines other than their own.

Once we get all the subforums, can we PLEASE shut down the "latest and greatest" threads? Any thread that has like 1,000 posts or more, just close it down. We should be making a new thread in a subforum for each new topic, just like is currently happening on the Majors section.

New TA? New thread
New hire bonus? New thread
What are the most junior bases? New thread.

I'm tired of having to sift through hundreds of (mostly) pointless posts to get 1 basic piece of information.

Kudos to the moderators for creating these subforums. I can't wait til you have all the subforums up and running.

This is why I recommended sub-forums earlier. It will make it easier on new guys to research into each regional.

Good news!

We have found a solution and we can accommodate both instances/requests: the one from the users who prefer to browse by categories, the one from the users who prefer to see a list of all the most recently updated threads.

Please have a look at the thread below, and let me know what you think.

Thanks All for participating in the conversation and sharing your feedback. More soon. N

Sounds great! (To quote Tony the Tiger.)

An afterthought. For the general threads is there any way to flag them or segregate them (or create a subforums for them?) so it will be easy to spot for those who use the subforums? If not, I can live with it.

Yes. We can create as many categories as we like.

Long story short, it will look as it is now: the top part dedicated to Airlines, w/ content specific threads, the bottom part dedicated to the list of (all!) the threads, sorted by most recently updated first.

I don't believe we "segregate" the threads. The threads will be categorized by "Airline name" or "Other" (if the content doesn't pertain to any Airline), but the threads will also appear in the bottom part of the page.

(This is different than what's happening now, as we moved, hence did segregate, the threads to specific Airline subforums - as such, making much more difficult for senior users of the site to find updates to popular forums - apologies for that)

Those who are looking for content related to specific Airlines, will browse the categories by "Airline name", which will look like the current subforums.

Those who browse by "Airline name" will be finding all the threads pertinent to the Airline. We will be categorizing all the existent threads by Airline name. New threads will be categorized by the user who is posting the new thread by picking the relevant category through a drop down menu.

There will be threads who don't necessarily belong to any Airline per se. Those threads will be categorized as "General" and they will be found in the "Other" category.

The users who would like to review the most recently updates threads, will scroll the page down, past the Airline-named categories, and they will find all the threads, most recently updated first.

Does that make sense? Let me know.

Sorry for the inconvenience, we'll set this up as soon as possible, and most certainly by the end of May. N

If you decide to go that way, you might want to retitle the Other subforum to Other Airlines. Add a new subforum entitled General Topics. For thread starters require a selection via a drop down so every thread is categorized into a subforum; as well as all listed uncategoried below (or as you pointed out, the New Posts selection on the menu).

Sure, in addition to the list of the current Airlines we will have 2 additional forums:

a) Other Regional Airlines
b) General Regional Conversations

Sound good?

Thank you. N

Hey, thanks, so, what do you think of the current Regional subforum thread, and the breakdown by Airline Company name?

Thank you.
