Re: Important: Merging of the Baseball Forums
I think the biggest reason that some people left is because the site has become less useful in recent years, ever since it became against the rules to post content from other sites. I know I used to come here to get links to all the articles written about the Reds anywhere on the Internet, but now only the occasional article is posted and discussed here. Redszone used to be a clearinghouse or smorgasbord of Reds information, but not so much anymore.
I think the site needs more original content and special features rather than subsisting entirely on people posting their opinions. Opinions are great, but we need some real meat too.
Perhaps a newsletter that highlights some particularly good posts would help generate more interest amongst the membership. Maybe some specially commissioned articles could be presented. Maybe some Reds personnel could be contacted to participate in a "live discussion thread" once in awhile.
Any other ideas to jazz up the site and generate more interest and discussion?
