There are many different meatspace locations on MS.

Giving each one a thread works wonders. Then, meet threads can be stickied in the main General Discussion. For traveling scummers, this would help meatspace meetups.

Some locations...

Sacramento/The Bay
SoCal
Chicago
The North Carolina Commune
Chicago
NYC/DC
Europe
Australia/Singapore

You're yet to realise that the EU scummers are not as important as the US based ones?

On a serious note, I like this idea of having several different sub forums based on location. IIRC, there was a Baltimore meetup a few years ago. As I live in Baltimore and fairly close to DC/NYC, I'd love to have a meetup in my area again.

I don't think having sub forums is necessary. not sure why are they going to get used for ...

a thread won't suffice?

It would make things easier for local scummers who want to do gamenights, plan meets, spur of the moment coming to town meetups, etc.

I like this idea; I think if it exists it should have the same access requirements as GTKAS, because I can imagine some people don't want just anyone to have specific knowledge of their location, so there should be at least a minimal barrier to entry.

^^ I agree with that. They could be sub forums of GTKAS

sometimes I consider burying a subforum way in the depths of the site and see how long it takes for someone to notice.

I actually like this idea.

But NYC/DC isn't really a good group. We had a thread that was like NY/PA/NJ or something like that. Including DC is okish, but specifying NYC excludes so many of us. Like that's the closest to me of the groups you gave and it's a pretty good distance away even though I'm in New York.

But as far as this idea, us Northest US scummers are pretty bad at organizing ourselves but always talking about doing things and I think having a subforum might somewhat help that.
