Hi mods

Would it be possible to have an Other Sports forum? There are several popular OT topics about cricket, formula 1, baseball etc. We also have topics that run for a couple of weeks such as Wimbledon, British Open etc.

Could they all be pulled together in one place?

What do you think?

Thanks!

I'm not a mod, but that sounds a good idea.

This had me really worried this morning. I was looking to post on a couple of my threads and couldn't find them. I thought I was being picked on until I found the new "Sports" sub-forum.

Not sure if I like the idea of splitting sports stuff out from the regular OT.

What's the criteria for moving threads ? My baseball and Ice Hockey threads were moved but the NFL one is still in OT

Why on earth would the "Wimbledon" thread be in the "Sports" section ? Such threads are hardly ever used to actually discuss tennis. There's far more important things to discuss during such tournaments.

The only criteria l used was to go back over the last few weeks looking for sports topics, the one you have mentioned was last posted to on the 12th May, and l had not gone back that far yet. I'm happy to move that over and any others that get suggested.

Sports Entertainment? I guess the keyword in what the WWE market their business on is "Sport".

Maybe merge the forums for the supporters clubs into one and then have the Sports section as suggested above.

I'm sure your post count won't suffer too much because of it :-)

How come a logon/password is required for "Off Topic" but not for the new "Sports Arena" sub-forum ?
