    Alternatively we could have these forums instead:

    Angels dancing on pinheads aka Choppertown
    I'm right and you're wrong
    Made up laws cos its easier
    WTF just happened?
    Leggings

    Yes, I think that both types of discussion would benefit from separation

    And for those who find esoteric law discussion immensely frustrating, it would be more easily avoided

    And with the five simple forums above it would be easy enough for the mods to move a thread where necessary.

    Basically the forums I am suggesting amount to

    What should I do (beginners)
    What should I do (grassroots)
    What should I do (youth)
    What did he do & was it right? (pro game)
    Esoteric Law Discussion


    Forum #1 would hopefully bring back to RugbyRefs something that we have probably lost sight of over the last few years

    It occurs to me that an analysis of current usage would be helpful, so I produced the following list of current forums. Whatever titles we choose, there is sure to be a lot that doesn't quite fit eg where would discussion about the RWC fit in crossref's list? Law discussions vary from those seeking basic knowledge to angels dancing.

    Part of the problem is that threads start off as "what should I do?" and then by post 327 have turned into the esoteric

    I am happy with using New Posts. Categories makes it possible to go back to revisit a topic.
