"When I said I want to replace rec.juggling for myself on a personal level I was speaking as a user. I mean I want to wake up in the morning & instead of thinking, "I must check rec.juggling" I want to think, "I must check the Edge"."
Ah, see I was asking the question as to whether The Edge was intended to replace r.j. to you the developer, not you the punter. You can probably assume that anytime I ask a question here it is to you the developer (unless I specify otherwise). I have always been replying to you the developer. That changes quite a lot (I may have to re-read and re-reply).
"So to address your idea of 'Medium Talk', the topics you suggest (festival announcements and reviews, prop reviews, show announcements) I would put in small talk - which yes at the moment could get lost, but as other sections come online I want to provide the user with a way to link these conversations to the festival/show/manufacturer/whatever listing. These conversations will then be easily accessed from the listing it is attached to."
It sounds like there is a planned space for such topics, which is what I was concerned about, so that's all good. I still personally wouldn't put them in Small Talk at the moment but that might just be me.
