Ohio Valley Board (2009-2022)

...Anyway, if you all see any threads that I botched transferring, like if I put a Kentucky thread in Pacific Southwest or something stupid like that, let me know!

Also, RIP to "Midwest - Great Lakes". At least now, we're by far the second biggest regional board behind the Northeast by post count.

Thank you for implementing these changes. This does make it easier to locate specific threads.

Just wanted to echo a thank you for the moderators and admin team for the recent changes that have been implemented! I appreciate the feedback in this thread and elsewhere being considered and look forward to a more user-friendly experience.

We're now very close to having no more split states: I believe Western MN is similar to a Western NY situation where it could be removed from the Central States board description without many threads having to be moved, as I think most (all?) MN discussion is located in the updated Great Lakes-Ohio Valley board. Those that frequent those boards more often could confirm.

That would leave the boundary between Mid-South and Southeast as the only split-state issue remaining (currently affecting 3 states: LA, MS, and TN).

Western NY had at least two threads to move out of there to Northeast.  Same for Northwest PA.  I am unsure if there were other threads moved out of there prior to the dissolution of the Ohio Valley board, however.

It would be interesting to see if there actually are any threads for Minnesota in Central States.

OK, I must have missed that. Updated with one very carefully placed letter.  ;-)

Whoever pinned the state notes threads in the Midwest board, I just want to say thank you.

Incidentally, I decided to see if there were any MN threads in Central States, and I didn't even have to look past the first page - the Northwest Angle thread from last year is there.

What Midwest board?  ;-)

I guess I'll be that one defiant person who keeps calling it the Midwest board. Because that's the name that first comes to mind.

I've noticed that the Northeast board is now emulating how the Southeast board was for a long time, with only Philadelphia pinned.

Perhaps "Philadelphia" was pinned to avoid a repeat of this  :rofl:

I did that after I split off the Atlanta thread and pinned it.

Thank you for that change as well. I hadn't thought about how all the Atlanta discussion was dominating the other general discussion in the Georgia thread, so that also helps with organization.

Most, but not all.  Would agree that all of the MN discussion should be in the Great Lakes thread.

It would be interesting to see if there actually are any threads for Minnesota in Central States.

There's a handful, including one from a couple months ago.
