Thanks. No one is blaming anything on anyone. The reason this section is here is recognition that people do have outside interest other than cars and may want to talk about it. It is something I have noticed different from nationalities on this board, in that Australians generally have a very keen interest in talking about sport and i was wondering why there didn't seem to be much support of sports from other sections. If you guys go to dedicated sites to talk about it then fine, it might be something that needs to be considered in future if admin are looking at changing the subsections.
The thread heading was meant to grab your attention it wasn't meant to insult. I didn't read it as an insult sorry if you do!
Over the last couple of days, via another forum I have noticed that Americans seem to like their ubbs to be about one topic and one topic alone. PT as an example seem to disaprove of the format we have here because the site is more general.
Taking your comments further, in order to appeal to a wider section of people we need to be more specific!
I understand perfectly what you're saying mate. I too have a keen interest in sport, but I never bother too go to any other sport forum (except the Geelong Football club forum) but it's good there is a section dedicated to sport.
This was not a slur at american poeple, im persuming HSE2 was just curious as to why there wasnt many Americans commenting in here, as I too have felt the same way. It's a great section and I'm sure theres alot we can learn from eachother. I'm sure alot more of you amercians love sport, so why can't we broaden our horizons outside of cars, even if this is a car forum.
The reason this section was created was so people would not post anything irrelevant to the sections name in a certain area.
Im presuming that's why we have the pub in the Australia section as there are so many off topic threads us Aussies like to post, but without having to go to the trouble of switching forums.
I would say about 40% of topics in the pub are irrelevant to cars, but keeping them in the Aussie section keeps us closer together.
Enough rambling on my part, but let's make this section as good as possible, the mroe we put in the more we will get out.
The European section has got going now, even if is still dominated by poeple outside europe, but with Persiverence that will change.
