Answered your own question there.

There's no demand for this criteria, thus we can't supply.

And if we open a capoeiera, not many discussions will be held.

We are trying, and although we have 12,000 registered members, we rarely have enough people to open one specific forum for a specific art. Look at boxing, shouldn't boxing deserve to have it's own forum? Well, no cuz boxing is a part of both Kickboxing and Muay Thai, so they go together and encourages more discussions. Just an example.

And a question for you. Do we have any members that knows capoeira to the point where he can boast skill or knowledge concerning the subject?

Hi IExcalibui2.

I am always open to suggestions from the members. At this time, there does not yet seem to be enough interest in a dedicated Capoeira forum.

That can change if there is enough support from the members.

Its funny how me and TimBlack were talking about joining forums so that there were not as many forums, yet we get people always asking for new ones.

Having said that, I would have an interest in this forum if it were created.
You could maybe create one that was Capoeira/X-treme martial arts, therefore anyone interested in the cool flips and tricks side of martial arts could post there.
Just an idea, although I am happy with the forum the way it is at them moment.

I just kinda felt like Capoeira didnt have a good place here, since ppl only talk about it in the general MA forum. And yea I've noticed there isnt too many capoeira guys here. I'm pretty suer cientista is one though.

And yea I agree with Tezza

Other sites cater for XMA far better than FightingArts would be able to, and besides... We're called 'fighting' arts, not 'flippity-floppity cool Matrix shizzle' arts

I wasnt saying we needed a 'flippy floppy' forum, I just thought if we had one this would be a good idea.
Although I do agree that this is a fighting arts forum, yet others will have different views on this.
Also MattJ I think its good the way it is, so dont worry about it.
If we get enough people to apeal for one then you could take it into consideration.

I wasn't trying to start a flame war I was only saying what some peoples views would be of it.
Tell you what Im not putting words into MattJ's mouth but if you get enough people to post asking for one in this thread then he may consider it.
