Attention MODS: Sport/Training for sport section

Just a quick idea, may be rubbish may be not. Just wondered if there was a possibility of a section for competetive sports and training for them. There is one for fighters specifically, just thought it might be good to expand on that and have a section for all sportsmen/women.

    It's an idea mate, however the problem with creating new sections especially something fairly 'niche' like that is that they may not attract enough traffic to make them worthwhile.

    The problem you have IMO is what osagi said, you may not see enough traffic going through such sections as quite alot of people who join the site are looking for advice for instance someone wanting to become more powerful at rugby would go in the "Power & Strength" section...
     
    if you say make a strongman, powerlifting and rugby section then people may stop visting the "Power & Strength" section. I think by making it too big and too specific you will get less traffic and less posts and it will also make it hard to find the advice such as when i need advice and i post it in the power and strength section i get advice from all powerlifters too such as Iaink gives alot of advice where as if i was to post a question in a spesific strongman section people like Iaink might not go in there so i might kinda miss out

    League or union?
     
    I probably played last about 8 years ago. Thought about making a comeback a few times but never really done it

    The idea was to have a forum dedicated to 'other sports' in respect of training and general discussion.  Then all the football, cricket and rugby threads could go there.  Yes, it would be busy, but it would take away some of the quality threads (which there are getting fewer and fewer!!) from General and each thread would get less views as the only people postig in them would be the regualr visitors - therefore our overall traffic would be less.
     
    Plus a quiet forum is a crap forum.  In hindsight we wouldn't have started the Over 40s forum (which seemed like a great idea) as the amount of traffic it receives makes it barely worth it.

    Agreed - no point in a quiet forum.
     
    If the Over 40's isn't viable, why not ask the few that frequent it (in the form of a poll perhaps), whether they really want it to stay?  It could increase traffic throughout the other sub-threads.

    James, I just had a look in there and there's some real positivity.
