Lets say you read a topic of a person who has a webmaster site, and there is a link in it and you are going to check it out. Do you expect it is like most webmaster sites or has a special twist that makes it not the same like most webmaster sites and maybe makes it a new generatoin of webmaster sites, if that is even possible.
I expect a general discussion forum to be where you can discuss TV, music, shows, food, all of it and not in an of topic forum but in several forums.
I expect from a gaming forum to be all about gaming, new games, game reviews, gaming platforms discussion etc...
But I welcome any try to make a genre of forum special to wards others.
