I would like to see an "availability" forum. This would be the place to ask people where to buy a game, or if a game is in stock at a certain place. Currently all this discussion is housed in the "general" section of each game.

Note that everything in this proposed forum would be time sensitive. I hope such a forum would clear out a lot of time sensitive clutter out of the general forum in addition to have a place to go to see the current availability of a game.

I think it's a good idea, except for the lack of visibility. A lot of people, myself included, subscribe to the game forums for games we're particularly interested in. There are games I happen to know the availability of from time to time, and I catch the posts in the game's General Forum... I don't know that I would subscribe to a general availability forum because the signal to noise ratio for games I'm interested in would probably be pretty poor.

Re: Availability forum
The availability forum would be for each game, in addition to the current News, General, Strategy, Sessions.

The idea is that many games' general forums are filled with who's importing what game and when a game is available for pre-order, etc. Or which online store have 3 copies. Most of these are transient information which is nice for reference, but tend to clutter up the general forum. Perhaps the "News" section is for this type of information, but I rather see it as a place for announcements from publishers.
