    How about adding a temporary "iPad Availability" subfolder. Its likely availability is going to be a worldwide issue for a while. A subfolder would allow people to start regional availability posts w/o cluttering up the iPad main discussion forum. Once availability has subsided and not an issue you can take the subfolder down.

    A app subfolder would also be be great, thereby separating discussion between the main hardware, the apps, and accessories.

    I don't think we have a good way to track availability in a useful way no matter where the threads are. It's just the nature of forums that a collection of discussion threads won't produce information in a form that's good for reference. Even if lots of people post about availability in their area from day to day, it's still not going to make it easy for someone else to look up that information.

    Two ideas for creating "reference information": We've had threads where somebody volunteers to maintain a summary in the first post(s) as people post in the thread, so we could have such a thread for iPad availability. Another choice is to set up a Mac Guide to which anyone could contribute.

    Either way it takes a volunteer or a few volunteers to start the ball rolling.
