Hei

I noticed that most Norway articles are located directly under the European Section (Overland Bound by Region Forum) folder root, rather than specifically within in the Scandinavian Section.

Could I make a friendly suggestion - that we keep all Scandinavian articles within the Scandinavian Section, and thereafter split them into distinct countries (Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Greenland).

Not only would this help us all to find news and articles easier, but also add a little common sense discipline to the system.

I also noticed that if you hover over the other European Country sections (e.g. Mid Europe) a pop-up shows which countries are included in this group (Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria). However the Scandinavian section does not offer this option. Could I suggest a pop-up be generated for Scandinavia, and the following countries added to this list (Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, Greenland).

Would be good to create this now, before the number of Scandinavian articles grows......

Thanks a lot for your consideration - I hope we can make this work.
Cheers
Neil :)

Hello Neil,

I think you should contact Michael and Corrie and ask if you could become the Scandinavian Ambassador. This together being moderator allows you to control that part of the Forum.

Greetings from Robert

Hei Robert

Thanks a lot for your reply and suggestion -much appreciated.

Maybe I should approach Michael and Corrie on this suggestion.
Do you think they would respond positively to this request?

I am sure I could do the job - no issues.
Just not been in OB for very long - although I am gaining badges at a rapid rate........
And I would take the position seriously, as I do with all my other commitments.
