    Default Brand Focus Sub-forum suggestion

    I am surprised to not see a Mabie Todd section as of yet.

    It's on the "maybe" list I think.

    That could be a long list.

    I am sure it is a long list. I eventually started a MT group on Facebook which currently has 195 members and seems to be going pretty well. So, I am sure a sub-forum here would be well received.

    Let’s see some content. Tag the title as in “Mabie Todd: title” and let’s see how busy it gets in the general forum.

    To be honest, even some of the current brand focus sub-forums don't get much traffic when you look at the numbers of threads and frequency of posts.

    When we're looking at traffic right now, brand sub-forums don't seem terribly useful.

    But when I encounter a new pen whether in the wild or at a pen show, and I want to know more about the brand, it's really useful to have a sub-forum where I can go to find all the relevant info. Doing a search will turn up results like the 'what's in the post' thread which aren't really focused on what I want to know.

    The question is whether this forum is most relevant as a day-to-day place to chat, or a long-term resource for fountain pen lovers? - hopefully both!

    There is nobody more enthusiastic about Mabie Todd than me but even I doubt that there would be much activity in such a sub-forum. The brand doesn't get mentioned often.

    This brings me to a suggestion: maybe someone could talk to the site's owner and convince him that he should name two or three administrators to voluntarily run the day to day operations of this ship.
