It helps separate the general stuff from the important stuff.why would you want another forum...why not just a sticky at the top of the regular Illinois forum like all the other state forums have??
Which reminds me...why the Chicago metro forum to? I don't see where there is all that much posting on the Illinois forum to disrupt the flow of information that might be for just the Chicago area. Now you guys need an incident forum as well....talk about FORUM Fanatics lol
