    I think this is an interesting idea. I haven't met many ethnic Dominicans, raised on the island, who are fluent enough to have a discussion on a message board, so it might not be a cross-section but just an elite few who were educated in English. I am not sure THEY would have much interest in posting here.

    I like the idea of a section for Dominicans in Spanish, it would be interesting, but many expats do not speak Spanish, which I personally see as a reflection of the divide between Dominicans and expats here.

    I speak Spanish fluently, but learned it in Venezuela. I can see how people live here and never learn Spanish, though. Speaking Spanish hasn't made my experience any better, but it has made day-to-day life easier, I think.

    Not quite sure what residents and citizens would discuss that a visitor would not be allowed to participate. When I was a visitor I enjoyed reading the posts of those who lived in rep dom. It helped me to make my decision to move here.

    Oh right it's hard enough to keep members from blowing each other up in the OT forum now you want mods to check credentials at the door?

    Too funny.

    LOL, and what about the residents who have not become "legal" yet? Will there be a third forum for them?

    That will never happen, so you might as well stop wasting your time now.

    Dislike this idea greatly! Leave dr1 alone and I hate that it was anonymously done.

    Not sure why this has been posted as a poll, but let's get some clarity here.

    An existing member asked me if we would consider a residents (supply proof of residency) only forum.
    My response was very straight forward. Sure, you find me 25 active members that will participate and you moderate it and I'll open it.

    I read the post again and it's not just a separate forum that is being asked for but a whole message board. Maybe they meant forum
