Hi,
Is there a thread or sticky on AVS where the builds are categorized by state? It would be great if there was a thread with all the 50 states and links under each state of the dedicated theater builds here which belong to it.

Thanks. I am guessing It will be even more easy to organize, network, host GTG's and build a tighter home theater community/clubs in each State. Hell there should be a AVS award every year for the State with the best DIY and Custom installer home theaters biggrin.gif

If all members have the location set in there control panel, it should be easy enough to grab that and plot it on a map, we did it over at my gaming community and worked well, entire map with clickable tags.

Next to the link to each build, would it be useful to include a few keyword descriptions identifying important elements of that particular build? For example, if I remember reading a thread about a theater that was in Texas that had a star ceiling or an IB sub setup, I could quickly scroll through the list of TX builds and read the keyword descriptions to narrow it down. Some of this could be accomplished with the forum search tool, but it might be nice to have little reminders next to the thread link, rather than just a long list of links.

Mine might look something like this:

TEXAS
Houston Area
Spaceman Theater Build - coffered ceiling, fabric frames, star ceiling mural

For larger states, it might be nice to have separate lists for each of the major metropolitan areas. This would be useful for organizing local meets/visits to nearby theaters.

Could be a very useful tool if implemented correctly. I like the keywords idea. When I was researching IB builds that would have been nice to have vs. digging through the search function and separating out those builds that actually had IB's and those that just mentioned IB's.

I guess the moderator or a special member would take up on this and start a sticky once this thread gets enough responses from members showing they are interested to implement this idea. Wondering still whose attention this should be bought to though....

Someone, (like mn_hokie - post 3) will need to just edit their post to include all the links. That post would become the heart of the endeavor. If there's enough interest and use, eventually it might get stickied.

I'd like to be included.
