Also while we're at it, can threads in the Greater Minnesota have the city added to the name, the same way that threads in Suburbs have the name in the thread?

Eh, I dunno. Seems like that could get real nitpicky--most threads in most subforums involve urban issues other than the project at hand, right?

I guess I was hoping to separate neat stuff like "Urbanist Confessions" and "Apartment Boom" and other random urban/city topics from truly general discussion threads like "Game of Thrones" and "Soccer" and any other random stuff that might crop up like "what's your favorite band?", etc. Right now it's a dual purpose subforum with 202 threads. I'm just saying there are two distinct types of "Anything Goes".

I think we should give a nod to tradition (and function) by listing Uptown first on the MPLS S-SW subform subhead. Even though people apparently hate it (because it's not as authentic as it used to be), it's still a major thing.

Can do. Also, yowzers there are way more active Uptown threads in the "new" South-Southwest subforum than I expected there to be. Even though it sometimes seems like there is growth happening everywhere, there is still probably more new construction happening around greater Uptown than the remainder of S/SW combined. I understand the frustration of those who don't want to wade through a dozen+ Uptown threads they don't care about, but I also expect that will sort itself out as the current slate of active projects around Uptown finish construction this year.

So, in the new forum regime, a University of Minnesota West Bank project should be posted where?

I would say Minneapolis - South/Southwest, using the river as the divider, but I see that 7West was sorted into North/Northeast/Southeast. We should come up with a defined line if it's not going to be the river. Riverside Ave?

How about this:
If it's an actual University building/project on campus, the most logical place would be "U of M - General Topics".
If it's something in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood, then South/Southwest.

Personally, I don't like how the City (and by extension, Census) groups Cedar-Riverside with the University community area, but whatevs. It's not as flagrant as grouping Whitter & Lyndale in the Powderhorn community area, which hasn't made sense since 35W went in 50 years ago.

That should work. Unless that West Bank Rec Center proposed a while back suddenly goes through, I don't know of any University WB projects on the radar that would warrant their own thread. So we can cross that bridge when we come to it.

The South/Southwest subforum should probably get "Cedar-Riverside" or "West Bank" added to its description.
