I am considering adding other sports forums to our site. To include Lakers, Clippers, Dodgers, Angels, Kings and Ducks.

These sub forums would of course be down below the Main Rams Forum areas.

My question is, would our members actually find it useful and participate?

Absolutely a great idea. Being a Laker, Angels and Kings fan... would be great. Thanks, but do you really want to work more for free Upland? :lol:

Wouldn’t be that much more work. Things are settling down a bit. I will wait a few days before I make a decision.

as a Bucks and Brewers fan I'd rather not chance getting booted off the board for arguing with you homers. : P

When I logged in just now, it said all the threads were empty.

Glad that didn’t last long.

You mean the other sports teams? Just doing some testing to see if users like it.

Are supporters of non LA based teams going to suffer the same fate as non Ram fans do here?

Because they are ran off pretty quick if they don't support the horns.
Some of us aren't LA homers across the board. I only root for the Rams And Lakers but support other cities teams for MLB(Red Sox) and the NHL(Maple Leafs).
For me it's not about the city as I've never lived in or near any of the cities my teams are found in.
I was 5-6 years old when I started following all these teams. 50+ years ago and chose them because of their logo's or because they were on the boob tube alot at that particular time, probably because they were successful or in the playoffs, which is what it took to make the game of the week in those days.

That's a big no! We support all thoughtful sports fans. We are of course primarily a LA Rams fans forum. So, no worries. As long as people are considerate of others, we will absolutely have no issues with members who live elsewhere or have other favorite teams.

Going to provide some input.

Don't know a Dodger website that's worth posting on (don't do reddit). SB Nation and Dodgers Digest both filled with pompous jerks.

Lakers have a legion of sites to post on including SB Nation and Lakersground. Not sure how many would come aboard here.

Kings I don't think would draw any sig traffic

Not and ANgels or Clipper fan, but their SB Nation sites are ghost towns.
Fan since 80s

Angel sites will continue to be ghost towns until Arte Moreno invest in some REAL pitching. It's that simple.

I voted "NO"...but if you consider a Yankees forum and an Islanders forum, I could reconsider. :D

More content means I want the ability to access the content.
You can't even look up your old posts or anyone else's. Seems to be an issue with that. Or do I need a new browser window in phone?

Don’t think I can do much about that. I will absolutely try to do some purging of the old caches. That may help.
