Rosebank Forum

This initial post will serve to activate the Rosebank Forum, both in a search and in the "Jump to a more specific forum" drop down list in the Western Cape and Cape Town forums (in a couple of days after the system synchs.)

It will allow the listings for Rosebank to be accessed from its own forum and not just one of the parent forums.

1. Re: Rosebank Forum

May I ask why you feel the need for a special Rosebank forum? It's a tiny, quiet, little suburb of Cape Town with very little of interest to any tourist - no restaurants, no hotels, few shops even. Students may be interested to find accommodation there but beyond that I can't think of a single reason for it to have its own forum.

Francoise I agree. Rosebank is fine but there is very little there for the tourist. Why would someone from Canada want to do this? Her/his profile shows 44,700 posts in forums but there is no evidence they have ever been to Rosebank, Cape Town, South Africa or even to Africa!! These suburb forums are a total waste of time and just confuse people. Just post in the main Cape Town forum. The nearby much bigger and famous suburb of Newlands has it's own forum. Over the years this has amassed the magnificent total of just two threads!! Although in the Cape Town forum has dozens of posts asking about Newlands. That's were the questions belong. I notice that Vancouver quite happily makes do with one forum.

There is an even bigger problem. Anyone here in the South Africa forums interested in "Rosebank" is 95 percent likely to be interested in Rosebank in Johannesburg. A suburb where there are many big tourist hotels as well as great neighbourhood markets and other things for tourists. However people have always been happy to post in the Joburg Forum or maybe Sandton. They won't notice the search for Rosebank picked up a tiny suburb in Cape Town!

Now this Cape Town Forum will slowly end up accumulating posts - for Rosebank in Joburg. Hence everyone gets confused. I will write to TA and ask them to remove this forum.

I understand that the reason for the forum is an attempt to separate the two Rosebanks. All the restaurants in both Rosebanks are lumped together, which I queried. I don't fully understand how these things work, but MuftiVancouver is trying to help resolve the problem and this is apparently the remedy.
