For example - Inland Rail should almost have its own forum parallel to the NSW/VIC ones etc. All items related to IR go in there making it easier to find historic conversations etc, perhaps preventing new threads asking old questions.
Others would include
- Murray Basin
- New long distance Victorian trains
- Ballarat line upgrades
- Other geographies of rail (eg South West Queensland, Townsville line)
- Sydney Metro Northwest
There would be many others that other posters could suggest.
The only thing might be were one thread might cover 2 topics with might need some more thinking.
The current forums would remain as is as there needs to be places to discuss grain harvest, sightings etc.

I sometimes add a post to a forum thanking a member for their contribution, particularly if they have answered a question that I have asked. This adds a post to the thread which is probably redundant.
If I just want to say thankyou, it might be more efficient to add a thankyou option to the thread reactions (alongside like/dislike/informative/funny etc) which I can click on and negates the need for my post. Can we consider this?

This is likely a bit of a vanity project, but is it possible to have somewhere on your profile page a count of all of the likes/funny/disagree etc that has been put on your posts? It would be interesting to see what those stats look like (and possibly how you compare to others)?

In the past few months, I've collated a range of reports from all over the place relating to different rail projects and topics etc. Its been noted that some reports which are public are now no longer so due to link rot (i.e. the links provided now no longer hold the report).
In the interests of keeping reports public, could Railpage have an area dedicated to storing reports? This would hold them in one place and in logical categories to help people (and Google's page indexing programs) find them, and let the reports be available for everyone for as long as Railpage is online. It would also help researchers as similar reports about the same topic would be held together, instead of someone needing to search high and low through the net.
I think at a minimum, the page would be a simple web page with headings, subheadings and links to the reports stored somewhere in the RP database system. It could also have tagging functionality to allow easy searching to take place within the database. There could be a submission process similar to the news process that could be used to help make sure the documents are tagged, classified and filed property etc. I'm open to comments as to what other functions would be needed.
Id be happy to help with the categorisation and management of the reports as I would create a bit of the traffic to start with.

I want to go back in time and read some of the older threads/conversations to get more context on what happened back then. In particular, I'm reading the NE Gauge Standardisation thread, and even with maximum threads per page setting, there are 44 pages or thereabouts. Its taken me most of the morning to get to page 6! Most of the time is spent scrolling and filtering out the miscellaneous information in the posts, like the quoted text, post header and footer (and the ads!). Is there a way that the thread can be viewed more efficiently so i can read it quicker?

When you click on a hyperlink, this opens in a new tab or window, keeping the original screen open.

Probably one for the will not implement category, but I've been a reader of these forums for a whle now and there is some great discussion here. Im also a user of airliners.net (main forum link http://www.airliners.net/aviation-forums/general_aviation/) which seems to have a really efficient forum layout, is quick and easy to read, and replies are easy too. Its pretty simple and makes for a good forum experience. If youre looking to upgrade the forum at some stage in the future, this might be an idea to look at.
