I propose that the Newtown sub-forum(or perhaps just my neighbourhood...or street...I haven't really decided yet) be created, so I can post pictures of cool Graf art I see, all the local restaurant and cafe gossip(OMG Justin Hemmes is opening up a Berlin inspired Tibetan street food hawker style bar) and all the awesome flat whites I drink, and all the cronuts, cruffins, cruffinnut-cakes I eat.
This is a classic example of the false equivalence fallacy. In the context of development, growth and skyscrapers there is a world of difference between Parramatta and Newtown. One has a lot and the other has none. That is why there is a separate section for Parramatta but nothing for Newtown. I've seen this exact same fallacy used recently by others complaining that Parramatta is getting the Powerhouse Museum while their suburb gets nothing. "WHY ALWAYS PARRAMATTA? WHY NOT KOGARAH?"

Also, I am often seeing the claim that 'Westies' have a chip on their shoulder. Have you not seen or heard comments from the Easties about Westies? Yes I am a Westie and PROUD OF IT! It works both ways. This attitude is common and not just online but it in real life. He who lives in glass houses...

I personally think the new layout is pretty good but I don't feel too strongly about it either way. In future, if things change and development in Parramatta slows it could always be changed back to a single forum.

This is people mocking you, as was my post. You Parramatta guys have such thin skins. This is a forum on the internet, it isn't an extension of your personality or ego.

The two requirements we should judge the changes on is usability and popularity. I think the usability of the previous structure was better, and the jury is out on popularity.

Which is why we should probably have another vote...

These leftards will stop at nothing and their anger has intensified now that their precious power house museum has been taken from them.

What's been taken away from me is a simple interface for my favourite forum.

This change was unnecessary from the start.

No, we have had a trial already. We are all used to it, its just that many of us find it lacking compared to the previous format.

I'll repeat that: many of us find it lacking when compared to the previous format

Just because you get used to something doesn't make it less crap. Anybody who dealt with CityRail can amen to that.
