Club sub-forums
#1

The club section needs sub-sections so each club can post club news into it's own sub-section.  At the moment posting club racing results is very clunky.

Let's see how it goes, but for now just post your results in your club thread. There's nothing clunky about that, it makes perfect sense, and of course it bumps your club to the top of the thread list. 

If we start opening loads of sub forums, then the Forum index page just ends up being clunky, which we're trying to avoid.

Obviously, if we end up with huge unmanageable threads for any club then we'll look at it again,  but the MSCC thread only has two posts, so that's not even getting close to being unmanageable yet.

Another option is to start a new thread each season, which neatly chronicles a year of racing and is a good read for existing and potential club racers - as well as being interesting for the rest of us.

Always nice to look at new ways of doing things on a new forum Thumbup

Good idea.

I do think a thread based approach is better, because it creates a natural order where the clubs that post frequently are at the top of the thread list, and the clubs that rarely post drop down. That's got to be better for those clubs that actively post here, and it's better for readers who can then see the most active clubs, and the most up to date information first.

If we set up subforums then we probably end up with an alphabetical list where the Aardvark Australian Aquatic slot club gets top billing, even if they've only made one post, whereas MSCC, Presto, and Worthing sit further down the list in spite of making regular, and valuable contributions..

Obviously this is a slightly different approach, but let's see how it works out.
