Kind of an off-the wall idea here, but what the hell, here goes.
Wrestlings got its roots in regional promotions. What if we had regional forums?
Picture the [slash] forum being divided by territories instead of topics. You could have a forum for the Northeast, the Midwest, West Coast, the South and a Canadian forum.
Does anybody think you'd start seeing a trend of certain boards being known for certain tendencies? Example scenario: the West Coast demands a more storyline-driven product, the Midwest demands more youthful stars, the South pushes for more use of the old WCW wrestlers, the Northeast is loaded with jaded smarts and the Canadians are workrate freaks.
Anybody think this could work or should I lay off the alcohol here at school for a bit?
It sounds like an interesting proposition indeed, it certainly would be funny to see the way certain attitudes were adopted between forums. However, I don't think it should happen as it'd end up making things more cliquey, which is hell to walk into if you're new. As it is the pointless flaming are pretty low here and I think they'd get worse if the board were more segregated.
Plus there would have to be a "Rest of the world" forum by necessity which would end up with myself, dMp, Addy and maybe three other guys if we were lucky. We'd be the persecuted minority!! .
"Nobody enjoys a good time more than I do, but this business of yours is as legitimate as a three-legged donkey...which of course is illegitimate because as we all know donkeys have four legs."
My beef is this - no one is ever gonna know exactly what goes on behind the scenes, but it's fun to speculate. And to read others' speculation. Is there some hypocrisy? Sure. But is it entertaining to read everyone's $0.02? Absolutely.
