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

I don't think subforums are really necessary at the current activity, if the Browns section was expanded to have sources/activity such as the Cavs that would be amazing though. I tend to only read this forum for Browns discussion since every other site I have gone to for the Browns has been awful.

I'll be the first to admit, I know jack squat about the technical aspect of running this, but on paper, there's no doubt in my mind that if RCF wanted to expand its' Browns (and Indians section, for that matter), that they'd continue to draw more people to the site and continue to grow.

I feel like this is a pretty accurate forecast should they choose to expand.

Having a separate forum specifically for "NFL Draft/College Football" where we can get input from guys like Smooth all year round in an organized manner would be a welcome addition. As would a gameday thread for the Browns and other nationally televised or important games.

While you may be attracting new and somewhat less informed fans to this site, the simple fact that this is a no pay site (unlike OBR) allows you to be as rigorous as you want weeding out trolls and guys who don't know what the hell they're talking about.

My advice would be to make it grow and see what happens. I'd even go so far as to say look for ways to supplement the expansion with features similar to what you do with the Cavs.

There are more than enough capable posters here to make an expansion work, so go for it and lets see how big this thing can get.

I've always felt that this site was on its way to become RealClevelandFans. No problem with that.

Beat me to the RealClevelandFans.com suggestion :D

I'd be on board.

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
This is correct. Not sure how I'd feel about a separate page for the Browns, but expanding it a bit would be nice.

I'd like to be assigned an obscure sub-forum to moderate. Like whatever gets the least amount of traffic.

I have no aspirations towards greater responsibility and would decline if offered. I just want to know that the power is there.

Let's talk more over whatever kind of dinner and drinks you'd offer to someone of my caliber.

If it means more traffic and income for Ben and the site guys, I'm all for it.

My only thought would be to make sure the conversation and vibe stays the same. Just like I'd be a fumbling idiot on a real football forum, I just don't want our basketball talk (which is the best on the Internet, period, as far as I'm concerned) to be overrun with people thinking they know basketball just because they're browns fans.

Not to say it should be segregated, but it would just take some good moderation to make sure everyone learns how to contribute properly in all zones

I don't want to be that guy (I'm new here) but I'd rather this site stay primarily a Cavaliers website. Everything in Cleveland Sports media gets taken over by the Browns. This is the best Cleveland CAVS site on that web and i'd for that to change.

I deemed you unofficial EAYOR mod in 2008, which was like calling the kindergarten class president a deputy hall monitor. What, that suddenly isn't good enough for you?

In all seriousness, I'm enjoying the responses so far.

So if Jigo gets to moderate the Browns forum can I be hired to moderate Jigo?

Browns forum is too much responsibility. I'd be more interested in something like the Browns- Used Equipment For Sale sub-forum.

Doc can be my handler.

New ownership, new coach, great coaching staff, lots of young talent, 6th pick in the draft, etc. If there ever was a time to determine if a new Browns forum could work, I think it would be now.

Yes, now is the time.

This is the best Cleveland sports information site on the web. Also, the EAYORian brotherhood keeps people around when times are slow, or people need laughs.

I am the natural choice for moderator. Also, being Jewish, I satisfy the Rooney Rule requiring you to interview a minority.

I appreciate at what you are saying, but no way this site gets taken over by the Browns. There are too many of us that are way to vested in the Cavs to let that happen. It the very worst, the Browns would get equal billing.
