is about a specific school somewhere.

Since we can't force that stuff into MN Local, would it help to have a 'Do you know about this specific school?' topic.
Coz I'm bored of reading titles about Hedgewood's school in Queensville, Homecountyshire.

I agree!

And even worse are the ones that are just initials:

"Should we go for DSEWRTF or GTRCV? Or has anyone got a child at KIJYBFR?"

Hi YeOldTrout - thanks for the suggestion. This is an interesting idea.

What does everyone think?

It's not usually that bad though - it's just someone who really doesn't rate that school has searched for every old thread that mentions it to bump it and add their comment. It would almost be better if that contribution could just be taken off (or left on one thread) so that the threads all went back into their place in 'history'. It's very annoying when people do this.

I don't mind seeing threads in education about particular schools and I think a separate location would just lead to 2 less busy areas of the forum. I just don't open the ones I know nothing about!
