RE: Future of DRLforum
Maybe it could be an opportunity to attract more to the forum? No idea how but its worth careful consideration.

SY's broadband will be just the same as the national things discussed elsewhere (Think Broadband, Cable Forum etc.).

I'm not saying it's a non-starter, but I can't personally see a way that we wont run out of steam.

We have ISP reps and I'm sure they would stick around so a rebrand would make sense.

You do have a very good point re competing against other forums. My intention has never been and never will be to compete against other sites. I set up the forum for RiPWiRE customers on my blog subdomain which eventually came into its own because Digital Region was such a niche thing and support was scattered about.

The future of the forum is very much up to the people that use it hence why I'm asking all active users what they would like to happen to it.

I don't think we need to compete with other forums out there

I think on this forum we've all got to know how each other operates and most speak freely - you can't do this on a lot of other forums without being slated

i agree, alot of forums have a lot more people, and imo a lot more idiots who just want to slate you for everything you have got. i dont think we have any of that here!

RE: Future of DRLforum
How about "WTF HAVE YOU DONE TO MY BROADBAND?" as the forum name?
