Creating subforums for each continent

Postby AdminT2R » Sun, 10 Jan 2016, 22:11

What do you ladies and gents think about having forum categories for each continent? So, instead of having just "Rugby Forum", "Women's Rugby" and "Other subjects" subforums, we'd also have subforums dedicated to "African rugby", "Asian rugby", etc... Perhaps a dedicated subforum for 7s as well. Everything would still be easily accessible on one single page as well via the "Everything" section that's currently in place if you don't like switching from one section to another.

I think I'd have an easier time growing the forum if I could advertise an "African forum" to Africans, a "South American forum" to South Americans, etc.. because I could link straight to that section of the forum where they'd instantly see the topics we have on that continent's rugby rather than a hodgepodge of topics, possibly with no topics covering their continent's rugby on the front page.

Works for me :thumbup:
If they're good enough to play at World Cups, then why not in between?

I'm personally not a fan of it. It splits things up too much.

Agree with Grande
Maybe it would more appetizing for the newcomers interested in discussing the rugby of their continent, but it would result a bit too dispersive for the rest of us.
Just my opinion of course

For me we should go in the opposite direction and merge the "Women's Rugby" with "Rugby Forum". Personaly when I am involved with a topic in the "Rugby Forum" I forget to go back and see what's going on in the "Women's Rugby". Just "Other Subjects" is better to keep apart.

But if you only want to see womens rugby news quickly then you have to sift through dozens of posts to find one, and all who make a new womens rugby posts have to make sure its marked up so it stands out.

The number of mens rugby posts will quickly swamp the womens only ones.

Yes,I understand, but in the other hand if we have a topic like "Sevens World Series/7's News", "South American Rugby" or "Rugby in Africa" or "Rugby in USA", things like this, why we must separate and not talk there about women's rugby?

Agree with Sir PoP. when there wasn't a womens forum, the womens news was getting drowned out particularly because there's less of it. I like how things are now. I don't have a problem going to or not going to continental forums.

I'd like to see all dreaming threads and posts like 'My Unique View on how pools for RWC 2035 should be drawn' separated from discussions of actual news and events and moved to a new special subforum
