Regional sections ?


Most of the forums i'm involved in... stuff like cars, books, computer stuff, etc. always has some form of a regional section. It's usually useful, for well, all things local...
For example, north west, north east, south west, south east, south, mid west, etc. etc.
Could have different sober meet ups in big cities... group activities, book readings, coffee dates, movie dates. for certain areas, could have outdoor stuff like hikes, window shopping, photography groups, etc.
This forum does function quite a bit different, that i do know, and might not work well on this site.
However, i'm trying to figure out a place to meet local sober people and make some new friendships and it's hard in a smaller town and to help organize some new stuff around my area.... i know i've read in my short time here that people are having a hard time meeting people...
could this be added possibly? or is there another place for that that someone knows of?

I would think your local AA would be a good place to start.

Maybe you could start your own "sober group". Plan outings if members are interested.

SR is anonymous, we don't encourage anyone to share personal information.

3. Breaching of privacy: Solicitation of names and addresses or other personal information for commercial purposes or, in the case of minors, for any purpose. Revealing personal information, including e-mail addresses, about other members that would identify them in the real world and which they have not otherwise made public online. This includes posting the contents of emails, private messages, private phone conversations, private letters, and/or any other private information that has not been shared on the forums by the member/non-member personally.

Do not post offline personal contact information (ie. your home address, phone numbers, email address etc.) and do not ask for personal information from others. Modify your member profile in the Control Panel at the top left corner of the forum to set privacy settings for your account. Use of full names (your first and last name) is allowed but strongly discouraged. This is to protect your security and identity.
