Criteria for city-specific board?

Was wondering what factors come into play when deciding a city merits it's own thread. My personal issue here is the status of San Antonio as part of the Texas board. Not meaning to be a stereotypical Texas braggart, but this is one very large state.Of course I recall that when I first started posting here the only city in the state with it's own board was Austin and recognize that the Texas board benefitted from having Dallas and Houston spun off. I will also acknowledge that the San Antonio posting/reviewing community is not a large one; that being said, I really feel that SA's reputation as a travel destination and rich culinary heritage merit consideration for a spin off.
