Now I know TLOtG are not always straightforward but for an inexperienced referee some of the threads must be even more confusing than I find them!

    I would not presume to think I know it all, I make my share of on field gaffs, and I take a look occasionally as I have now to see if there is anything going on of interest and to see if I can learn anything.

    too often I find that the posts drift off into great detail that become turgid and I loose interest as a "hard core" have fun debating. My lack of intellectual rigour maybe....

    Having said that I do hope it continues because at its best it can be very good if you are able pick the wheat you need from what you find is chaff.
    I agree with most of this and I think part of it is also that the forums seem so unorganized. There are simply too many categories and subforums. They need to be streamlined.

    and Ian liked what Illinois had to say
    http://www.rugbyrefs.com/showthread....ll=1#post79465
    and Illinois came to Ian's support later in the year on the same topic
    http://www.rugbyrefs.com/showthread....ght=#post98398

    So I'll ask the question : Ian -- are you and illinois by any chance the same person ?
    Let me get this straight: the OP is about respect on the forum, and one of your leading pitches is to accuse someone of being a sockpuppet, based on THAT evidence?

    I will accept Ian's assertion that he is not Illinois Rugger.

    It has led to more experienced referees leaving, or only posting very occasionally; thus the forum and its members lose out on their advice.
    Indeed Phil, I have only recently started re-posting after a significant break, directly caused by "the latter" reason and having better things to do with my time. I am here to discuss, learn from and help colleagues of whatever level, not listen to minutae debates irrelevant to day-to-day community reffing.

    Crossref has perceived a problem and is doing something to fix it. Good on that man. I doubt he'll be successfull but he's giving it a red hot go.

    You have perceived a different problem - what are you going to do to fix that?

    This isn't an either/or situation. We can fix 2 problems at the same time.

    I'm just hoping out of all this I can raise my proportion of posts/likes/thanks from it's current abysmal level. Although it could go the wrong way with a huge increase in not likes......

    On another tack, but still in the general theme of how the forum could become better --
    - here's two excellent nuggets of information posted today in response to caniscot's question

    Quote Originally Posted by Phil E View Post

    Quote Originally Posted by OB.. View Post

    That's just the sort of well-sourced guideline / interpretation that this forum is useful for.
    - I'd like to see more of that sort of thing cascaded
    - and ideally cascaded proactively --- Phil, OB perhaps this was something you found out today, but it felt like it handn't occured to you to share it until caniscot happened to ask the right question
