Just got in, and had missed previous updates. I am opposed.

Why? As I stated above, this has nothing to do with who is doing systems in development, but rather it has more to do with active systems, so it would make more sense in the Updates to Highway data subforum.

The content of that subforum is for individual updates, or small groupings of them -- think of them as "issues" or "tickets" if you will -- that optimally are solved and then moved away to another subforum. There's really no static content there, other than the one How-To sticky.
I think this list is more appropriately stored under the broader "In-progress Work" heading.

I understand that contributers who have already been active for a long time wanna have everything organized as it always was but I also understand compdude787.

"In-progress Highway Systems & Work" subforum is "For Highway systems that are currently in progress and haven't been activated yet." That means, it's about systems in development or in preview status.
"Updates to Highway Data" subform is used to "Report errors and changes to be made immediately to the highway data. (Only Activated systems)". It's used for maintenance issues of active systems.

The are threads like "Canada and USA state/province/territorial highways master thread" with info about who is developing new systems.
The "How the work is split / who maintains what regions" thread contains info about who is maintaining active systems.

To be honest, I don't see any reason why this thread should remain here. I think it perfectly belongs to the other subforum.
"Normal" users usually reports errors in the "Updates to Highway Data" subforum. If one has opened an issue or ticket and gets no response, where should the user find the user who's responsible? (note: some regions have no maintainer anymore)

Just my 2 cents....

btw: I've started a Forum organization poll long ago and the result is 3:2 PRO change!

I agree with your forum reorganization plan.

Personally, I don't really see the need to reorganize the forum.

Neither do I, nor do I see a compelling need for "the public" to know specifically who works on what state, given that we're pretty fairly open with regards to pull requests and who does them.  As long as needed updates and fixes are made, it doesn't really matter to "the public" who makes them.

As one of "the public," ;) I  agree. It doesn't matter to me how stuff happens behind the scenes. Knowing who does what is more important to those involved. Folks like me will post updates/corrections as we notice them in whatever way the core group wants us to do it.

You guys do a great job. As long as it's fairly easy to maintain my list and post corrections or comments, I'm perfectly happy.

froggie sums up my thoughts well. A forum member posts an issue, and someone-or-other handles it.

Knowing who does what is more important to those involved.
My thoughts too.
