[Does anyone have any thoughts about how I can break up this thread? As it stands, it's of no use to anyone. TY, D]
Obviously, it's your site...but here's what I would do for such topics
In the first post of the thread, have (in big letters) "To find your airport, put the airport code, or airport name, or city name in the search box on the top right of this page"
Then ask people to include the code, city or airport name in their posts. If you want to do any editing, then maybe take some existing posts and add the code in, or the city or airport name. But I'd guess most have this already.
A thread has two lives, both as a place to put in info and a place to take out info. If you break this into 50 different threads for each airport...then I believe people are less likely to ADD more as doing so would require first searching if there's an existing thread, then starting a new one if not. Easier to just post in the Airport thread and not worry about it. If someone randomly starts a new thread about an airport, you could merge it into this one.
This holds true for other such themes, like the amusement park food thread. Yes, you can split them apart...but I doubt more people are coming here to find food options in Elysburg PA - but many of us head for Knoebel's - and in an amusement park, you're a bit of a captive audience, like in an airport. having them all in one thread (IMHO) works better than a bunch of little threads.
Bottom line - find ways to use the integrate the search feature more, rather than expecting people to scroll through pages of thread titles looking for a specific airport.
