    Default Board changes

    Hi guys,

    I'm going to create a new board to give all "other sports" their own separate spot away from the rest of the off topic conversations that go on here. This would include high school sports, college sports, minor league, whatever else doesn't have its own board now.

    I'm going to leave Market Square with the same name and same content (except of course sports).

    The Fever board is going to merge with this new board because the traffic there is very light.

    My questions for you guys are as follows:

    1) Should I also merge the Colts board?

    2) What should the new board be called?

    Thanks!

    think the Colts should stick to having their own board - sure its off season now but during the season it gets rather busy over there no?

    Minor Leagues is fine as a name for me...

    I also think the Colts should keep their own board. In season it's pretty busy and is even getting a little bit of traffic now, and will get a lot during the NFL draft. If you wanted to get rid of a borad I think the fantasy sports forum could be closed and the threads there merged with the new general sports board as well. It gets no traffic once the leagues are done with their drafts, but it seemed like it would get more interest than it actually does.

    As for a name, how about The Sports Pub?

    Hehe well that board will be 4 years old in October and it has a grand total of 17 threads, and the majority of the posts are in one thread where I ran the very ill advised thread draft league. I know it's not hurting anyone but it's not exactly pulling it's weight either.

    The Fever board got quite a bit of traffic during the end of last season and the playoff run. All that was lost in the big crash, of course.

    Kind of running thin on local references.

    Pan American Plaza?
    The Sports Lounge?
    The Locker Room?

    I like 2 of LA's names. Sports Lounge or Locker Room. We should have a poll for the name.

    I think the Colts and Fever should both merge into the new one.

    The Colts board is independently very active. Moving it would be a detriment to both that board and PD overall.

    I believe the runner-up names that didn't beat "Market Square" for this board's name were The Locker Room and The Club Level.

    Colts deserve their own board. Fever should be grouped in with the "sports board" .

    I'll go ahead and declare the Colts board safe. I wasn't looking to merge it, but it occurred to me that maybe I'm wrong and it was actually a good idea, so since I knew the Fever board was going to be merged I figured I'd throw it out there and see.

    What remains is to find a name for the new board.

    I've gone ahead and set it up; I'll move a few pages worth of sports posts from Market Square over to there to kick things off.

    Hey remember that time you said you were taking a break from the board?





    As for names: Good Azz Sports?

    Clearly the correct name is probably "Irrelevant"

    Sorry I didn't know this thread was here, so I started one in the "I need a name!" thread.

    I nominated The Locker Room last time before Market Square beat it out. Looks like LA brought it up again this time around, I still like the idea
