    It looks like an overwhelming number of posts in the Other Hotels are about CC properties. And no wonder, they are getting a lot of attention with the big bonus promotions.

    Time to create a dedicated forum? How do we go about it? :)

    It's a mystery to me. Some enticement support from the Club Carlson folks would help, if I understand post #6 in the following thread:

    Yes I do think it is right time for CC to get their own dedicated forum. Easy for subscription too :) Too much threads about CC scattered everywhere :D

    I would love to see a Club Carlson forum. Thanks to the promos, I now have over 1,000,000 points with them (I combined points from all five family members into one account ) and would love advice from others. Tomorrow we go to Quito and we used 30,000 points per night for 2 one bedroom suites for a total of four nights. We got in before the point increase for the Radisson there. I also booked Zurich for 50,000 points for the Mega-Do night. We just booked Singapore award travel to Moscow and then Singapore. Looks like no hotels in Singapore, but several in Moscow and St. Petersburg. If anyone has experience at Carlson hotels in those cities, I would love some input. We are going there in May for 11 nights in Russia and 5 nights in Singapore.

    I truly don't get the requirement for official CC support. It seems backwards. Make a vibrant forum, and the associated brand (and its official representation, and its ad dollars) will follow. Why would they spend any effort on a social media outlet that has no steam and just lingers, when other outlets have all the users? I'm no expert and I could be wrong, but would like to understand the logic.

    by 'they' I'm assuming you mean Club Carlson, which (correct me if I'm wrong Milepoint Guides) isn't the entity to decide if there will be a Club Carlson forum, it is the folks at Milepoint.

    Of course. But from reading the threads on the topic, it appears that Milepoint wants to get Club Carlson on board before they create a dedicated forum. It looks like Milepoint is saying "CC, get on board and we will create a forum for you", and in fact "we won't create a forum for you unless you get on board", which seems backwards to me. These are not quotes, just my interpretation of the conversation between MP and CC. And judging by how long it is taking, CC is saying "whatever.. who are you again?" ;)

    I doubt it, given multiple threads asking about this for the past year, with no movement.

    Surprising; you'd think MP would do anything to increase participation, especially something like this that has no upfront cost. I mean seriously, I like MP's modern UI and the points/status system is fun, but user participation is clearly lagging behind TOBB, at least in most forums.
