Confused about where certain posts belong

I was reading the Not About Food thread and found a discussion on the rules for picnics in NYC parks moved from the NYC board. I didn't post to the thread so, I have no axe to grind. . . it's just that I try to post in the right place and I would certainly have posted that question in the NYC board. I know it's not exactly about food, but it is so location specific that the NYC board made more sense to me. Can you explain the reasoning? thanks.

  1. The regional boards have a specific mission- to share tips on where to find delicious chow in that area. If it's not about finding chow, it's off topic for the regional boards- that's why we have a Not About Food board, for these almost but not really about chow questions.

    It's best in these situations to put your post on the correct board, and then to leave a "heads up" pointer on the regional board to alert local hounds to the discussion.
