Nah, you can still read Paris. Isn't it peculiar that there is just a big branch full of leaves hanging in front of Ch...? They've got something to hide

Opinion needed

I'm thinking if we should add a license plate code at the start of every country-topic.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...se_plate_codes

So it would look like:

"(GR) Greek Highways/Motorways/ Αυτοκινητόδρομος"

"(MAL) Malaysian Highways & Autobahns - Lebuh raya"

"(NL) Dutch highways & autosnelwegen # III"

What do you think of the idea? Love it? Too much? Change it a bit?

Sounds good.

And what about topics that are not related with any country? Sth like (World) (Europe) (sth-else)?

Other threads just wouldn't have any prefix. Sounds ok, more readable, you've had that in the Dutch snelwegen forum since always.

Good idea. I'd see it this way though: (Polish subforum habit, sorry )

[GR] Greek Highways/Motorways/ Αυτοκινητόδρομος

[MAL] Malaysian Highways & Autobahns - Lebuh raya

[NL] Dutch highways & autosnelwegen # III

Yep, good idea.

I recall a suggestion a while ago (long-time lurker) of splitting the forum into subsections because of the number of active threads, but I would be against the idea - I think discussion would become too fragmented, and there really aren't that many active threads - those past page 2 aren't really active anyway.

Just my

Good idea. It gives a better overview

Suggestion:

[]The Roadside rest area III - SSC's roadgeeks!

It would be useful if every country's opening post contained some basic, up-to-date information about motorway network (maps, construction schedule) so that you don't need to scan the whole thread to find what you need. So far most threads start with an outdated map and rather random pictures.

I realise it's kind of hard to recapitulate all info and update it once in a while, but if everyone put some effort in, that could straighten the forum up a little bit

I can't make all those starting posts myself. If someone has good stuff, he/she can make a post, and I can put it in the first post.
