    Could the forum owner / head moderator create some Regional subforums so people could coordinate some meetups for events etc...?

    The meet and greet section can kind of be a little convoluted because we don't have regional subforums. It would be easier to use meet and greet for introductions and have regional sections for meets. I actually started using another forum as well specifically because of this issue. I love the mobile version of this site and was always a fan of the Faction so I'll be staying around;).

    Some regions have already made their own pages. Like the "anyone from the NE?" page. Alternatively best places to find other owners is at autocross events which also seem to get posted. Me? No, rallyx? Hell yeah.

    You mean threads within Meet and Greet? Personal opinion, but I feel that still is not very organized. Some people start threads for regions some for states and others for certain areas within a state. Then all these threads mix and get lost. Regional sections would make this much easier to navigate. As for meeting people at autox events and shows what better place to spread the word about events then a regional subforums:)!

    I've actually ventured over to the FoST forums since I see so many on my work commute... I'm probably going to head out next month on a cruise with them along the Kancamagus:

    Would like to have a few FiST's come along too so I'm not the only one...

    We will look into adding Regional forums soon.

    That would be a very nice feature. However, the population of ST owners is so small (outside the SoCal area) that you won't amass the same kind of collection of folks as you get at, let's say, focaljet regional forums. It's unfortunate, but a byproduct of splitting the ST forums from the core product forums is smaller total audience (even accounting for non-owners). I like the idea of regional interest groups -- just a little sad that the ST owners are separated from the rest of the Fiesta owners. I think the community would benefit from having more folks assembled in one place with simiilar interests. It would be really cool to aggregate all the small-bore Ford motorsports enthusiasts (Fiesta, Focus, Cortina, Escort, etc.) into one place.

    FiST owners are a smaller group but you have to start somewhere. As far as consolidated forums it all depends what you're looking for. Our cars are just different enough for FiST and non-st owners not to have common topics a lot of the time. I've actually gotten a lot more from the FoST guys then the fiesta folks. IMHO the conversation crosses over more with our ST brethren.

    Coming from the fiesta faction I can see why they split us into our own forum.
