First of all I would like to say thank you to any Mods or Admins for taking the time to read this. I know you guys are busy and have a lot on your plates. I also feel it is our duty as the user to help out with the site whenever possible.
It is with that in mind that I propose a new sub-forum for posts regarding the PMR or Proto Matrix Rail. The Rail debuted over the weekend at World Cup and the Matrix forum is already experiencing an influx of Rail posts. The Matrix forum is already cluttered as it is and with the addition of the Rail, the forum is in danger of being flooded with posts.
In addition to reducing clutter in the forum, the creation of a sub-forum for the PMR will aid users searching for specific information and will deliver said information efficiently and effectively. While built on the Matrix platform, the PMR is quite a different gun. Unlike all previous models before it, the PMR lacks an LPR and its bolt system is almost unrecognizable as a Matrix bolt. The argument could be made that if the Etek Ego has its own forum, so should the PMR.
On 11/15 I posted a thread in the Matrix forum asking users if they would like to see a PMR sub-forum. Less than 24 hours later the results are clear. As of 11/16, 8am PST out of 160 users who voted, 126 or 78.75% of them would indeed like to see a sub-forum for the PMR.
Included in the 'Yes' vote was none other than Matrix forum Moderator 'gremlin75'.

I understand that similar suggestions have been made in the past to no avail. However with the release of the Rail and the already noticeable increase in Rail threads, the time to implement is now. I feel the arguments for the creation of the sub-forum are strong and there is a large backing from Rail owners and non-owners alike.
Please take my suggestion into consideration. Again, I know you guys have a lot going on and that a new forum is always something you want to consider carefully. But in the long run, I truly feel it would benefit everyone involved.
*** To all posters, this is a PRO
PMR sub-forum thread. The burden lies on us, the supporters to make a case for the sub-forum. Therefore there is no need to post negative comments about the proposed new forum. For further discussion on the proposed forum, please go here: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=1853470
Update: As of 12/01, 504 users have voted in the posted poll. Of those 504 users, 404 or 80.16%, have voted in favor of a PMR specific sub-forum.
