I don't think we'll be successful in getting a forum specifically designated "Caribbean", but (Sam/Pete) maybe the addition of the word "Caribbean" to the CA/SA forum title might be an option???

Ok, fair enough to give the Caribbean some more exposure. It would be somewhat tricky to start a new forum at this stage, mainly due to the list of countries that would fall under the new forum not being classified in such a way to make it easily achievable. Also, it would mean we really need to create quite a few other forums as well: Scandinavia, UK, Eastern Europe, South East Asia, Central Asia, etc.. etc.. it would be a massive overhaul (one which is bound to happen at some point, but I think not necessary yet)

It would certainly be no problem changing the title and description of the forum though.

Just wondering about wording.. how does this look:

Central/South America & The Caribbean
Discuss the southern Americas and the Caribbean here

Not sure about the Central/South America part..

Btw, any better forum description suggestions are welcome. The current ones are pretty uninspired if I say so myself

Perfect Peter, perfect. I think that would set off the Caribbean so people know in which forum to post. Thank you Thank you

Also, I like the other forum names. Setting them up as "continents" seems to be appropriate. Now, if you want funny names, I could probably think up a few.......

Sunnie....

WE DID IT!!!! YEAH!!!!!! I'm humbled.....

Amazing what a lot of begging and a little bribery will do.

Thank you guys for adding one of my favorite places in the world to the list.

Beerman begins making arrangements to trans-ship a cargo container of beer to Oz and Norwegia... Is anyone looking?

THANK YOU VERY MUCH S&P!!!!!!!!!!!

The Caribbean lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And, now visitors and members alike can find it!!!!! It's not stuck in the wasteland of Central and South America, only popping it's little turtle-like head out when someone has a question!!!!!!

Isa gets on the coconut telegraph to let all the Caribbean members know that all was not lost and they have finally been found!!! Isa also hands out coconut shells filled with rum to everyone she sees!!!

Okay, before anyone jumps me about my (above) comment... NO, I did not mean that Central and South America were wastelands!!!!! Just so we're clear!!!!! I like Central and South America, and by the number of threads in that forum - so do many other people. I happen to like the Caribbean, which until now, was just floating in a cyberspace ocean...

Isa pours a coconut full of rum for herself and dons a flak jacket...

See, now I'm confused. I want to ask a question about travelling from Mexico to Cuba. Where should I post it?

(just causin' trouble)

16. Posted by Isadora (Travel Guru 13926 posts) 11y

I'm guessing try North America first - if that doesn't work - try the new Cuba forum that, no doubt, will be set up shortly!!! (Hahahahahaha!!!!)

I heard Canadians were banned from Cuba for life - the Canadians life - not Castro's!

I've been on holiday... in North Carolina (I know.. why does someone who lives in the Caribbean have to go on holiday.. but my family is still in NC.. and the best deal on "stuff" is there (clothes, shoes etc).. I go on a shopping holiday when I'm there).

Thanks for changing the forum name.. Hopefully that will help people know they can ask questions about "The Caribbean" on this forum.

As for Mexico and Cuba.. Cuba is part of the Caribbean (although not a member of the Caribbean Community Countries (Caricom) but it's still located here.. Mexico.. not so sure.. but it's sometimes lumped into North America with Canada and the US.

Thanks again.

On this site, Mexico is considered part of the North America forum. (And Sunnie, Greg was justing being a smart***, but stick around and you will find that out for yourself in no time!) ;) (It's also one of the reasons we like him so much!!)

See, it paid to bribe the Overlords with 50 cases of Banks!!!
