Place Forum.... Is this where we post about flying fields and different events?

Is this about places to buy hobby items? Is places for posting where you are from and where to get and give help?

What goes in "Place"?

The RR Place Site will consist of it's Main Discussion Forum and subsequent (mapped point) forums. Each place on the map will have it's own forum and many topics to itself. This functionality will hopefully come within the next 30 days.

How about a forum dedicated to your home field? Instead of just one topic as is being done in "Clubs and Associations", your home field forum could have many topics on different subjects.

I guess my point is that..... we already have that...... in the link you provided....

What makes "Place" any different ?

Thanks Mark. I suppose things will become more clear as time passes. I suppose threads like the "West Michigan Helicopter Pilots" thread (now with nearly 22,000 posts(!)) will end up in "Places"?.?.

Do you envision a time when if wjvail were to post to a thread it will also be cataloged and mapped to where I'm from in "Place"? I can picture something like how my iPhone presents pictures I've taken from various locations. While the pictures are filed one way, looking at the iPhone map will give a number at each location associated with the number of pictures taken from that location. Continuing to zoom in will eventually pull up the individual pictures.

What is a forum as apposed to a topic? For example, lets click on the map at the location of Global 3D. Now we have a Global 3D forum. Now during the event you have a place to create new topics about where to eat, where to practice and so on.
