PR is awesome. It's a rugby forum in name only though, completely different site to this.
That's a really good point Dumbledore.
There are many different places to occupy in this rugby community landscape - PR, The Colo, Sportal, Us, The Roar and others
I think it's outmoded to see them as just all forums. They're communities that run in different ways, to different rules and structures. For me, I think we should strive to be different and set our own standards. The online world has changed since forums were just places for internet geeks to come and be keyboard warriors, but unfortunately much of the 'real' world's perceptions of forums hasn't.
I believe G&GR has done really well to lift itself largely out of that and these ideas (which as you say Dumbledore will have less impact then many fear) are an effort to keep that going.
I'll give you an example though of where I reckon we have more work to do - I know a certain Wallabies captain who said he loves the site, but having made a few visits in, doesn't venture into the forums. Now, our aim should never be to keep players and public figures happy, but I think it's a crying shame if the gold that gets discussed here with the banter and interest doesn't get the airing or impact it deserves. (This DOESN'T mean I think we should sanitise everything into a boring vanilla, or make it some sort of blogsite. But as Daz has pointed out, we have a hell of a lot of lurkers to posters, something puts them off from contributing.)
I wonder what else we could achieve if we could bust a few more perceptions and chart new territory? I think that's an exciting idea.
