I just added the states as prefixes. So, when start a new thread be sure to pick the appropriate state prefix from the drop down menu. Hoppy said it would be hlepful to be able to sort by state, so now you can sort by state using the prefix filter!
if you have any questions check with any moderator.

Please put the state in the title also as you have been doing. If the prefix changes in the future, we still have the state visible.
