Please move a Board listing

On the main board listing all the regions, Western Canada is at the very bottom of the International section, instead of near the other Canadian boards. Can this be moved so it doesn't look like it has been banished from the rest of Canada? Thank you!

        So... 2 years later and more than one request for this. Is this ever going to get fixed?

        1. re: anonymoose

          Likely not until we revamp our board breakdown altogether. Currently, the way those listings are generated, we don't have the option to simply move a board within a board group.

          1. re: anonymoose

            I agree this is super-annoying, especially because there end up being so many mis-categorized posts about Vancouver etc. on the Canada board (which I often flag - apparently, many people don't notice the Western Canada sticky at the top) but if you hold your mouse over each of the International links and go down, you'll see that the list is displayed in numerical order by board ID number. Because of this, as Jacquilynne points out, it's unfortunately not as simple on the programming side as it may look to take one board out of that order and plunk in it another spot, although of course it can be done. And with all the other current technical problems, as well as the relatively low volume on the Western Canada board, I'm guessing that this particular item is likely a low priority for the Engineering team.

            Just my take on the situation.
