Petition for Newcastle & Gateshead sub-forum

This is for a petition for a Newcastle&Gateshead sub-forum, instead of the thread that it has.

The sub-forum would have Newcastle&Gateshead developement thread, Tyne tunnel thread, Tyne and Wear Metro thread and other threads within it.

Newcastle is a "core" city within the UK, it also has a similar population to Liverpool which has it's own sub-forum.

Their are many developements goig on in Newcastle&Gateshead, aswell as the Tyneside area.
Some of these have been on hold (untill the credit crunch ends), some are being developed as we speak, and others are at the planning stages.

So calling all mods, please give us our own sub-forum.

Been quite a few new NE based posters recently.

Around 5000 posts with a few of the NE threads combined, reckon it would soon overtake the Wales forum if created, the NE posters are fairly active.

Not entirely related but the Hull development thread has more posts than the entire Wales forum by quite a margin.

Yeah, we came to the conclusion that after every amount of posts, a thread gets deleated, thats why it appears that they have more posts then other when infact some threads are on their 2nd generation.

Newcastle&Gateshead, not North East, and Hull would come under any Yorkshire sub-forum, infact it's closer to Sheffield, Doncaster etc, why would it need to be in a North East sub-forum?

Not many, but thats because of the restrictions Newcastle council have.
We do have a couple of 40 story towers planned though.

Ncc focus more on buildings that will compliment existing buildings.

In that case, i guess there is a case for your own sub-forum.

I know this is skyscraper city, but its really an architecture forum, so I wouldn't have thought that would have mattered?

I don't really think it needs one. There isn't enough construction going on to warrant one. If it must have one though, it should be for the North East- all of Tyne and Wear and Durham, not just Newcastle and Gateshead.

I think Tyneside should have its own forum, not the North East. Many of you may have noticed that there have been issues in the past of geordies trolling mackem threads and vice versa... might get a bit tense!! As for all the people who claim 'there isnt much contruction happening' well all I can say is there were a lot of stationary cranes and half-finished sites in Leeds and Manchester last week, seems to me this is symptomatic of the recession, but things will no doubt pick up.

On the other side of the coin you could argue that Newcastle has probably the most exciting city centre developments outside of London in the pipeline (not long now, fingers crossed) with the East Pilgrim Street development, Science Central Stephenson Quarter and the £500m Metro Reinvigoration.... in the next 5-10 years the city will be hopefully be transformed.

I don't think just a single thread is good enough to be honest. The thread we do have has picked up recently and there is a lot of discussion compared to when I started viewing it in the Summer. The downside of having just a thread is that there are only a couple of posts on certain subjects and then it is killed off because something else gets discussed soon after. A sub forum would certainly help this, as pointed out Tyneside is the 6th biggest settlement in the country, and as also pointed out there is, or will be in the near future plenty going on.

I personally would be content with a Tyne-Wear/Durham sub forum, but I think giving Tyneside a sub forum is the way forward tbh.

That's exactly what happens in the East Midlands forum. It's not exactly trolling but there are always arguments.

I definately think Newcastle should have it's own sub forum. As has been stated many times, the single thread is not adequate, especially due to discussions jumping from one thing to another. Not to mention trying to access information from a previous date. A sub forum could contain developments from Newcastle, Gateshead, North and South Tyneside.

Named, Newcastle and Tyneside forum, having threads for each town, I.E. Whitley Bay (which is now starting to see lots of regeneration) North and South Shields, Felling, Hexham (not Tyneside but it's on Tynedale/Northumberland), plus many others, come on mods, make it happen please.
