    TR admins,

    Searching through the forums I've seen a good number of van line drivers and threads, given that it's such a specialized field with a very different pay system, culture, work schedule, and skill set requirements, maybe it's time for a subforum?

    Thanks
     
    austinmike and motocross25 Thank this.

    The standard answer for these questions is pretty much always the same - sector-specific or occupation-specific forums are put in to help organize existing discussions when they become too much for any of the other forums. Creating a forum doesn't create the discussion, the discussions need to already be ongoing, then we add a forum to help keep those discussions organized.

    We've had questions about this in the past and always make the same offer - create a thread for that sector and keep it going, then when it becomes too much for that thread, we'll look at creating a forum for it. Thus far, none of the bedbugger threads have generated enough discussion to justify a forum for that specific sector.

    However, don't let that influence you and keep you from trying another one, because things can always change. Feel free to create a new thread to discuss that sector, keep the thread going with a lot of activity, and we'll keep an eye on it to see how it goes.

    What would be a good subforum for such a thread?

    I see you've got your thread going, so thanks for creating it. I'll add a link here to that thread in case somebody interested in that sector finds this one later with a search and hasn't found that one yet. We'll watch it to see how it goes, but keep in mind those smaller sector threads often take some work to keep them going and interesting. I'm sure you can do it, though, so good luck!
