I agree... create a rafters forum and kayakers forum. People who want to see all content can look at new posts, and its essentially the same as it is now. Kayakers who want kayak only content can have it. There isn't currently any way for kayakers who have no interest in rafting content to bypass it without wading through it.
Its a legit request, one that would enhance the function of the buzz, and one that would make a lot of kayakers happy.
Comments like "skip over it" are useless. If it was just one post, then it would be valid, but skipping over 50% of the content takes time, and computers... gasp... can be easily configured to make things quicker and easier.
I personally would like to be able to check into the buzz... take a quick look and see what new kayak content is there, and if I want, explore further.
There is no concensus... a good segment of the buzz would appreciate this type of change, and if done smartly, it wouldn't negatively impact function it would improve it.
While we are at it, whats the plan with the flows page? I'm a diehard AW supporter, but for flows, the AW page sucks. The old buzz had a really slick and condensed flows page that allowed you to assess flows across the entire state with a quick look. Eddyflower had great run content, but made checking the flows more complicated. It would be great to see a better flows utility. I'm a gauge geek and I know where to go to check the nitty gritty details of all the gauges I want, but it sure would be nice to get a simple flows at a glance set up again.
