Texas Boating board?
Aug 22nd, 2014 at 10:42am
 
Guys,

Curious what you think. I've noticed we're getting a lot of members that are all over Texas and the south. What do you think of me making a board to encompass all Texas boating?

Makes sense. River Dave's Place is pretty much nationwide at this point. ABF to TBF?

Seems like a pretty big open void. There's another board that looks like it's trying to do it but it looks pretty junky.

There's a Texas Hot Boats site but they focus on smaller boats and the local rivers.

Yeah, I think we could do a more encompassing and inclusive site for all of Texas boaters.

Domain bought, software installed. I'll have to do all the setup and graphic design work soon though.

What kinds of forums would you guys like to see?

Regions, types of boats, technical forum, appearance?

I'll keep this forum going. If people like the other forum better so be it. If this one stays more popular that's cool too.

Challenge to the spam crew (you know who you are): First one to make a mess of posts on the board when the domain resolves gets major cool guy points Wink

Great idea with the expanding to all of Texas! 
Suggestions for sub categories:

Regions (North, Central, South)
Fresh
Salt
Boat Yard (Maintenance questions)
Events (Runs, Meet up, Raft up, etc)
Swap Shop/Boat spam

If I were you I'd just roll this into TBF. OSO and some of the other big sites have are broken into regions. Probably not a bad way to go. North, South, East, West, Central. I'd take a look at River Dave's for some ideas.

I like it. Keep the good ideas coming!

I whipped together some basic forums. I'll do some more tuning when I get back to Texas from this trip.

Until the domain propagates the name servers, it can be found here:

http://texasboatforums.demand-performance.com

I think I'm going to like the software a lot more. If you guys find any glaring bugs or user experience issues let me know. If I need to change software, now is definitely the time!  Cheesy

The new site looks good!  The state is better than the balloons that was there before.  The balloons made it look like a remax site lol.  Texas hot boats is not the best site!  I posted about hula care on a thread about cleaning a boat and they jumped all over me accusing me of trying to spam their site even though I had been on the site posting for just as long as I have been here.

Looks good, it could only register me with the language "British English" I tried to post on the wake boarding forum and it changed what I wrote into British. Weird.
