    In the SouthWest forum, you have the following Ca forums: Anaheim, Fresno, Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, and South Bay. I have a question. If you are going to seperate the Bay Area into regions, such as S.F., and South Bay, why not have a seperate forum for those of us in the East Bay? Or the North Bay for that matter?

    Oh, and on behalf of JGM, I would also request a forum for Watertown, Madison, or Sioux Falls, SD.

    there a specific standards for how to get a forum Jay

    **I can't find my city on the FanForce Forums. Can you please list it?

    If you would like to see your city listed here as part of the TFN FanForce, then we would like to encourage you to visit the Communications Forum and/or visit your Regional General Discussion forum, and post a topic about adding your city. If you can get enough people from your area to respond and create interrest, then the TFN FanForce staff will work on setting up a forum for it. In the meantime, we would like to encourage you to post in the closest metropolitan city forum to you. You never know who you might meet from your area!

    **How can my city be recognized by TFN as an OFFICIAL FanForce City?

    Well, it's simple. Each metropolitan city is divided into regions. (You can view a list of U.S regions and International Regions here.) These regions are also "categories" on the FanForce Discussion Forums. These regions contain unique City forums, where Star Wars fans and TFN users can get together online and meet fellow, like-minded fans from their area. But FanForce is not about the "online" world. The "online" world at TFN FanForce is just a tool to help these cities effectively run their FanForce. With that being said, each City Forum is encouraged to form a grass-roots club, which will become the local official embodiment of TheForce.Net. This club or group will be referred to as a FanForce!

    The following is a list of pre-requisists in order for your city group to be recognized as an official TFN FanForce:

    1) Get to know everyone posting in the forums for your respective cities. If your city is currently not on the forums, start it up! Maintaining a strong presence on the forums is vital!

    2) Start planning group activities and meeting with each other! Communities are not built over the internet alone!

    3) [IMPORTANT] Your city group must plan and execute three events or activities and have advance notice of each posted on the FanForce Headlines/Main page. We want you guys to build grassroots, self-contained clubs that actually do more than just chat on the forums all the time! Network with your fellow fans! Without the completion of this particular guideline, consideration cannot be given.*

    4) Choose one individual to represent your organization to FanForce. This person will work directly with a FanForce Regional Support Administrator to help you plan out activities, interface with charities, gather sponsors (if and when necessary) and address all issues and concerns regarding FanForce and TheForce.Net in general

    thats the part from the FF FAQ that I think is most pertinant.
