how about a UK orientated forum


Hi, would it be possible to have this, as much of the content is US based, and when trying to do searches for uk based products it is made very difficult by the fact that the search engine rejects the search term "uk" as it is to short

I don't really think geographical splits are the way to go, but perhaps the search engine could be modified.

I think that its nice to have a whole, world-wide, community on one message board. It gives sort of a international feel to it. This way, you post in one forum, and get the point of view from people all around the world.

Just my $0.02

Talking To Split or not to split...?!

Here's my tuppence worth!

Retaining a single community is the right way to go.

However, it is likely that us UK guys will 'group' together as a matter of course under topics that we readily identify with and require resolutions to, advice about etc etc.

UK is different to USA

ie we are stuck with 4 non-bank affiliated payment gateway offerers. All the others are banks which are so tied up in beaurocracy it is unbelievable! It takes a mountain of paperwork and visits to the bank to apply for a Merchant ID. Then it takes weeks for the sodding banks to refuse you!!!

In USA you are fortunate to have such a variety who want your business and are fast in setting you up. Hours or even minutes.

Are we envious? YOU BET YOUR SWEET BIPPY we are!

Only problem for us if we choose a US based gateway like 2checkout, PayPal etc is the currency issue.

So, there is my 2p worth. I think a UK forum might work going forward, but for now, keep it altogether - like a family.

By the way, this is a fantastic site.
