Due to the success of the "Name That Station" created by Diehard Washington Redskins Fan #1, I created this poll which asks the question whether or not we should make it into our own little section (such as Rider's Platform or The Mezzanine) called "Name That Station". You could have three parts within that section: "Name That Station Subway", "Name That Station Bus (NYC Buses and/or LI Buses)", and "Name That Station LIRR, MNRR, SIRR, and PATH". Please choose "yes" (if you are for this happening) or "no" (if you are against this happening) and then discuss accordingly in the thread. Mods, I would like to hear your opinion on this as well as to whether or not it would be feasible/doable and tell me your thoughts on it (mods preferrably).

Thank you.
Are you for or against starting our own section called "Name That Station"?
Only one choice allowed

It will be a good idea, but I have a feeling that it will die within a few weeks, and will get as much attention as the G line, or the shuttle fourm.

You don't know how long it took to develop a Mezzanine section. :p

Anyway, the "Name that..."s are just games; there is no way they will get their own forum, especially when it generates interest for only a handful of Strappies.

Also, it is quite finite. You are talking about a universe of less than 800 stations (counting commuter rail), and only dozens of model buses and trains. Such a forum would last maybe half a year at best.

You ought to try deleoping your own message board, like MoOnMaN319 did a while back (check his sig); that way you can have the freedom to make it what you want it to be (tournaments, competitiveness, etc.).

Yes, I did take that into consideration. Sooner or later we would run out of questions. :p

Thank you, XBOX. I feel honored. I am so pleased that all of you love my game so much! I feel it has brought Strappies to a whole new level.

However, I believe that the thread should stay as it is. The game is not just for subway stations only, just to let you all know. Why fix something that isn't broken?

Yeah. IAWTP. Same exact thing happened with my "Name that Movie!" topic, it was popular then it died out... <_<

IAWTP. This has happened before here and it would happen again. There's nothing we could do about it except for bumping up the thread.

Well, thank you all anyway. "Name that Station" has exceeded 500 posts! (That is both threads combined.) Congrats to all my fellow Strappies for making the fun last.

I see no reason to change the forum breakdowns at this point.

If I see any need for a separate section, it would be for "Fight the Fare Increase", "Clean our Subways", "Albany: Fund Mass Transit", or other such Straphangers' initiatives collectively. It could be called The Cause, or something similar...

I don't know, I just came up with this... but adding a forum for "Name that..." anything doesn't make sense.

There used to be forums about different aspects of NYC life, but they were proven redundant, and the "Platform" was created. When that wasn't enough, the "Mezzanine" was also created.

The Mezzanine was almost 4 years in the making! eek

Did The Mezzanine took a long time to make because of all the threads you had to move?

No, it was that it got to a point that so many o/t threads were posted that a new forum for just non transit related posts had to be created. And I'll say it was worth it.

The Mezzanine debuted on Monday, May 3rd, 2004. That's a bit of RD history for you there.
