The site looks amazing, and is way easier to use than one that was tested a couple of years ago. Many congrats.

However, I have yet to find Oklahoma. Not in the South (thankfully) or the Midwest, or the Southwest, or with Texas (where I've always thought it should be), or even the dreaded "Elsewhere". I've been over and over, but maybe I have missed it.

Did y'all do a Rand McNally on us? (as in leaving us out of the Atlas).

  1. Wyoming isn't listed either. I am sure there are others.

      We did not "bust out" the country yet. The USA regional boards are just like before....for now. We're doing this one step at a time. Betty, you shall have, as promised years ago, a good place to discuss OK, I promise. Just not today.

      This is all work in progress. We're still working on this software.

      1. Need a "Plains States" or Midwest-west of the Mississippi subforum, for that is the natural place folks in those states will look.

        1. You know what's way cool? You're now officially, the one and only "Betty" on this site!

          1. As long as Betty is still posting, Oklahoma should get its own doggone board! (I'm pleased to make her one of my first "tracked" posters--still waiting to see how that particular function will work in practice.)

            As much as it pains this ex-Okie to say so, I also agree with Betty that when you do get around to re-drawing the regional boundaries, it makes the most sense to group the Sooner State with Texas; if you do this, though, please change the name of the board to Tex/OK so we don't disappear completely!

            I would also assume that a new Hawaii board will be in the offing. That won't leave much for the "Elsewhere" board, which is fun to read--I love learning about the best dining in Prudhoe Bay and Salmon, ID and such--but don't let that stop you!

            Thanks for all the work. I'm starting to get used to the new format and I surely do appreciate the working search function. (And I will look forward to the return of Hotposts, rising from the ashes like a Phoenix . . .)
