New Message Board Title

One of the problems of site-specific boards is that they generate so little traffic. Check out the postings on AOL under Sailing-- they have headings for all sorts of different areas. They''re all dead, with the last posting three months ago, and the one previous to that, five months old. Sailing World/Cruising World has a "Local Knowledge" heading for area-specific types of discussions, but even with the entire world as an option, it isn''t the busiest of their boards. In order to get the types of responses that make a board work, you need a critical mass of activity. Breaking topics into too many small pieces keeps you from getting that critical mass,and undermines he credibility of the entire site. Just my $0.02.
