IMO, one forum will do.

The Russian forum is losing its acitivity and football isn't even discussed here anymore. And to think we once had one of the most active forums on this website ( partly due to our great moderators, Julia and Arianna).

So I suggest we have just one forum for everything now, not an extra one for teams or a chill out forum, but just one forum.

Anyway, that's how I feel. I'm sick a tired of having to go to the Ukrainian forum to talk football. Hell, Russian football is discussed over there more often than over here, that's sad.

I also remember when you were really active. What happened, where did everyone go? There was 2 other CSKA fans I remember, two Loko fans, and a bunch of other people always posted there.

Pretty much the only people who talk football on here are Tigran, Kleber, Oanimal, and myself.

I don't see how having only one forum will improve matters. I post on the Loko forum, but there are no games right now, so there's not much to say (although I was going to post some quotes from O'Connor I read in a newspaper today).

The way to attract new posters is to be as visible as possible, so reducing the number of forums doesn't seem like the best idea. A lot of responsibility has to be put on the FM's to get people talking. I've been trying to post more on chill-out recently and it seems more active in the last week.

I think the Russian forum punched above its weight for a long time because of some very talkative girls who are no longer here. Not much can be done about that.

I don't think that's the reason, we just need posters with more enthusiasm for Russian football. Alot of people stopped posting, and it looks real bad because of all our forums.

Spartak forum have four-five people,Cska-two.....but i am sure if they get to Cl group phase a lot of people will come here.

The problem Dmitry is that Julia and Ginger just almost stop posting....

I agree with everything here.
Plus, making a change requires work. Not making a change requires no work.

While there're no games in Russian League and since Russian NT doesn't take part in the world championship what are we expected to post? For me the existing format is okay.

Really the number of people on our forums who have knowledge of the Russian game and actually like to talk about it are about 4 people.
