    Hm. I've got a thought. If we call it polar (or something) we don't exclude finns. Also, there are a lot of people in Greenland and some in Iceland that know how to read either Danish or Norwegian. Is Greenland considered part of Scandinavia? Finland and Iceland aren't. I'm not sure if it's such a good idea to exclude them.

    Hmmm APUG Norden. Norden APUG. NAPUG. Northern APUG. Arctic APUG. APUG Arctic/APUGA.

    Ole, I would love to help out moderating the Scandinavian forums, but I don't know the photography terminology in other languages than English since I didn't pick up photography seriously until I moved to the US seven years ago. I simply wouldn't be of much help.

    How about the APUG Vikings Perhaps only for the Norwegians and the Danes?
    One language would do i think.

    The Swedes went a-viking too, just in the opposite direction :-)

    I vote for a single, multilingual forum called simply the "Nordic Forum". If traffic grows to unmanageable size it can be split further thereafter.

    And I was just about to .......

    But the subforums that Ole suggested plus locations as Søren said would be a nice start. And another one could be analoge photo supplies in Scandinavia, called photoshop (pun intended) if not covered by Ole's groups.

    Et skandinavisk-forum må siges at være en god ide, jeg er med hvis vi må skrive på dansk

    Hi - not a bad idea to create a local APUG forum (Scandinavia/Norden whatever) - but there certainly is a language barrier between us Finns and the Danish/Swedish/Norwegian people.

    Besides that, we already have quite a lively and knowledgeable Finnish-speaking photo forum at http://www.kameralaukku.com although much of the discussion is about digital technology there.

    Jukka: The languege barrier is definately part of the problem, and the scandinavian/nordic/whatever forum could address just that. For those of the community who have a hard time reading and writing English. I don't think any of the participants want to exclude anyone from the subforum, but I do feel strongly for using Scandinavian langueges in the posts there for the above reason. I've voiced inclusion of Finns and Icelanders, because Finland and Iceland have many people who speaks one of the Scandinavian langueges.

    So... Two good reasons for a subforum.
    1) Geographical concerns/advice/community building
    2) Inclusion of users who aren't overly adept at reading and writing English, but have a fairly good grasp of Danish, Swedish or Norwegian.
