Re: I've noticed something about the Other Wrestling Section

WWE and TNA are on TV every week (accounting for almost 9 hours of TV wrestling a week, not counting PPVs.) Indy's, Euro, lucha and puro are not as easy to find. There are just more fans of the mainstream stuff on this board. Oh well. I try to watch a little bit of everything. I wish all wrestling fans would branch out from the mainstream but it's not going to happen.

Re: I've noticed something about the Other Wrestling Section

Is this seriously a "why isn't there more filler/bullshit" thread?

Quality of quantity.

You're also asking why there isn't as much activity in a part of a forum that is viewed by significantly less people? Yeah.... I'm not sure.

And as has been said, everyone here doesn't watch the same thing, the WWE forum is only for WWE, everyone has that in common and most watch that product. This section has a ton of different companies being talked about with almost no one watching them all. I only watch Puro, so most indy talk doesn't interest me or leaves me with not a whole to to say. Same with people who just want to talk ROH or PWG. It's a very splintered section.

Re: I've noticed something about the Other Wrestling Section

I think the other thing is that the WWE forums are a place for people to just spew whatever thought comes to mind as an immediate reaction to the goings on of WWE TV. That's a massive generalisation, but I'd wager not too far from the truth more often than not.

In Other Wrestling, it's a much more cerebral affair. Things like the Indy DVD thread/MOTYC thread often inform my wrestling viewing; I don't have the time to check out ALL the recent indy releases, so it's nice to come to a place where it's all intelligently discussed and dissected and I can be selective with what I watch based on some previous recommendations. Really, we're all in the habit of helping each other out.

How could WWE have an Indy branch, if FCW/NXT doesn't count?

I think the people who post in this forum would like a bit more variation, of course, but not variation to the extent of the General WWE section and TNA.

In the WWE sections in the last few days we have had threads such as Who else thinks it's great to see Tensai jobbed out? or something like that. Things like this, included with "... is being buried" or "... PG Sucks!" threads over and over mean that this little part of the forum is a haven from that type of thing.

I would like to read a few more threads on here but from the posters who already post here, or from those who don't but are willing to discuss their point and not enforce it all costs. I wouldn't want this forum to be littered with "Why does New Jack hate everyone?" or "This promotion is awful, let's hate it together." etc.

I have rarely seen a thread expressing a need to read more pointless thread ideas.

Re: I've noticed something about the Other Wrestling Section

I think sometimes its just tough to get some quality discussion going when most people are pretty stubborn about their taste.

they don't need to be pointless, why not have a Thread Starter somewhere for the sake of putting in ideas for future full fledged threads

the btb section has it

I don't understand. You mean an 'ideas-for-threads thread'? A topic where we talk about topics that could be good topics to talk about?

I'm not trying to appear ignorant, I just don't understand what a thread starter is.

Re: I've noticed something about the Other Wrestling Section

I rather like the relative quiet here. Little of the goofy, unnecessary clutter that fills up the WWE/TNA sections makes its way into this area. That's a good thing.

Oh, and the scattered nature of who watches what, when folks get to see it and all that slows conversation down. I know I rarely have anything to say since I'm either behind on my viewing (thus behind the conversation or avoiding spoilers) or the topic is 'best [x] from year [x], promotion [x]', which really isn't my sort of thread. Not bothersome in any way, just not my 'thing'.

The overall tone of this section is different – much like in the Classic Wrestling sub-forum. Folks posting here (and there) seem to have a better grasp on what pro wrestling (sport/art form/entertainment with a long and crazy history)is all about. Even when I'm not contributing, I do enjoy reading many of the more interesting debates, reviews and general discussions.

OP, I'm not really sure passion is missing, unless you mean the silly, over-the-top anger and threads about unimportant minutiae that are such features of the busier sections? I enjoy a laugh at that craziness, and I'm very, very guilty of jumping into some questionable topics for the fun of it, but I appreciate the lack of much of that in some parts of the forum too.
