About this forum reshuffling...

Post by Matisfaction » Tue Sep 12, 2006 6:57 am

Was the possiblity of a sports forum talked about at all?

I think someone proposed an idea of one i while ago in realation to all the wrestling threads etc. that pop up in OT.

I'd be quite happy to moderate the forum if there's no one around to do it.

Oh no you don't. With a brit in charge all they'll talk about is that wussy sport "football!"
:?


:wink: :kiss)
It's a good idea, but it probably just falls under OT. If there were a sports thread, the question is this: will wrestling be allowed? Is it technically a sport? :o

See that's what I'd say. But I can almost guarantee there will be someone voicing their opinion as to it's not a sport.

If it keeps wrestling and other sports related threads out of OT then i think most peeps will be for it.

You also have MMA, UFC and pride that would probably slot in to a similar catagory as wrestling I guess.

True.

I'm all for a sports forum, it's just whether or not the people that make the calls are.

If they weren't met with "omg not another wrestling topic" posts then I'm sure there would be.

I think that logic is flawed. People will feel inclined to make more sport related topics if there is a sport-related forum. But then again, if you're going to work with my logic, you could continually break down OT into a crapload of specific forums until OT doesn't exist at all, and I don't think that should be done.

If you want a sports forum why not have a music forum? tv forum? movies forum? "cool websites" forum? etc. You could go on and on. Gaming was distinct and popular enough to be seperated from OT, but I think thats where we've got to draw the line.

IMO, we don't need a sports forum.

I thought about it when we did the split, but there aren't enough topics to justify it, and it's too off-topic (Gaming is considered an OT forum, but it's not far off from the target audience of the site).
It's thinking...

A sports forum would be just about the only forum here that I would stay the hell out of, because I HATE sports; with the exception of wrestling, but that's hardly a REAL sport.

As stated before, sports-entertainment.

And for this one reason alone we should have a sports forum, a place that smiley will never visit. Glorious days! We don't all have access to the staff forum, that's one place smiley can never post. :twisted:

The out come in wrestling maybe fixed but the bumps are real, the stress that some wrestlers put on their bodies is immense. Wrestling doesn't start and end with the WWE either, you also have other promotions like TNA and in Mexico and Japan where wrestling is still considered a sport.

If that's not reason enough to have a sports forum then i don't know what is? :wink:
