    i don't really understand this discussion -- if the site is going to stick with the multi-forum design, surely we should be --

    1 - opening new forums from time to time, when interest is expressed
    2 - closing down forums that aren't used

    so yes, have a sevens forum. if its used it would survive, if it's not used it would be pruned

    I think that during August this year a lot of people will take a passing interest in Sevens.
    RRF could get a share of that traffic if we ran a few well timed articles and imho the sub forum would help channel the traffic.
    I cannot see the harm in having one more sub forum.

    Why not try it and see? Does it cost anything to carry dead forums?

    I would be interest to hear Loïc's opinion. As I know that arbitrage-rugby (which he's admin for) has lost a deal of forum traffic too. They floated the idea ( on their Facebook page) of dropping their forums altogether and keeping just the front page articles.

    that's interesting,I've wondered if RR.COM should drop the articles (and the blogs) and become just a forum.

    It is a legitament question ; if you are indifferent, fine. That does not mean I am not entitled to ask the question.

    True..yes you are...I forgot the smilie cause IMO the rebuttals and counter rebuttals is starting to sound like an episode of Seinfeld to me that I'm finding quite amusing.
