Something I would ultimately like to see one day and I think the internet in general is moving in this direction is networking. Possibly Redszone, Orioles Hangout, SOSH, WhiteSoxInteractive, and the best fan sites of all 32 MLB teams link up behind an upstart website similar to Rivals, Scout, or ESPN. I think it would not only attract new posters to Redszone that are Reds fans, but quality discussion even from outsiders.
I've seen a wonderful, extremely active Marshall board I used to post on destroyed because of moving to Rivals; no thanks to that kind of network! It does bring in more posters but brings the level of discussion down. If we were able to maintain all of our current rules, cool. But that is usually not the case as there is a network wide system that every board must adopt. Just my .02.
