This has been a topic that's been going on for a few years now. Some members would like to see the Browns section expanded to include it's own front page and forum. RCF and I would have to find another administrator for that as I just don't have time right now due to health concerns but I honestly wouldn't have a problem with that. So vote in the poll and let your voice be heard.

Re: Would You Like To See RCF Expand It's Browns Coverage?

i dont think it needs to have its own page personally, but it would be nice if the indians/browns sections had their own subforums, especially for game threads etc. that said if you are willing to do a totally new page that would be fantastic, but i dont think its necessary

I'd just assume nothing change. The fact that the Browns section isn't the focus of attention is sort of what makes it good. The more people that can find it, the more idiots there will be working their way in. It's been pretty successful and organized as is.

I agree with this completely.

I disagree. The Cavs portion of this site is leaps and bounds better than anything else on the net and it has nothing to do with exclusivity... Its the constant and appropriate attention from the Admin/Mod team that makes the site so great. It would be critical to have a similar set up with a 'Real Browns Fans' style site, but I have no doubt it would be a huge success.

Re: Would You Like To See RCF Expand It's Browns Coverage?

The OBR is horribly organized and I wish they were run like this site. They have about 100 new topics weekly and they they dont allow 'insider info" to be talked about even though their inside info is all over twitter and the net. I would like expanded draft coverage and maybe more of an emphasis on Browns Game Day threads.
To really take off, we would need more traffic to the Browns section.

If you were to add more sections to the Browns and Indians then you would most likely want to change the name of the site.

I voted for both options B and C. B because we already have some excellent Browns posters here, and C because ever since the 2011 season, participation in the Indians section has been at an all-time high, with series threads, etc.

Re: Would You Like To See RCF Expand It's Browns Coverage?

I think you could condense the Cavs section a little bit and expand the Browns and Indians ones.

Cavs Talk
Cavs Gameday
Around the NBA*
---
Indians Talk
Indians Gameday
General MLB Talk*
---
Browns Talk
Browns Gameday
Around the NFL*
---
General Sports Talk*
Off Topic
OT EAYOR
Studio 34

That still seems like too many sub-forums to me but then again I mostly use the "what's new" or "unread posts" feature to avoid having to go through every sub forum

You could combine the * and have a thread for each league in that forum as well

Depends on what you mean by Indians Gameday. One thread for EVERY game?

Re: Would You Like To See RCF Expand It's Browns Coverage?

I wish there was a larger Browns board with more structure like this forum, I would definitely utilize it. However, do we get enough traffic on this site to support it? Don't get me wrong the RCF brand is strong and if Ben and the crew set out for it to grow I bet it would, Im just not sure how long of a process that would be.

I think the site could steal members from the OBR if it had more traffic and posts. OBR has always been there, but the quality is very poor. IS there even an Indians site just for the tribe?

There is one similar to The OBR, hosted on the Scout servers, called Indians Ink or something like that. Hardly any posters there though, probably because it's so abysmal.

I volunteer to moderate the new section(s).

I will be stern, but fair.
