    Why? - FAR more Rolex talk on Public forum than Rolex forum?

    It never ceases to amaze me.

    The public forum is filled, nay obsessed, with 'Rolex' chat and query threads, whilst in the Rolex forum sparrows can be heard chirping while slow and ancient lingering discussions of "what are you wearing today?" ......or a "Sub vs GMT" thread gets ten or eleven responses max? It's a bit like the House of Lords in there...the living dead.

    I'd go so far to say that Rolex gets far more exposure on even the Omega forum than the rolex forum.



    What gives?

    Maybe it's because the Rolex forum is full of fanboys so there's no discussion of value, brand baggage etc like we get AD NAUSEUM in public?

    I tend to ignore/avoid them anyway, the watch/brand has no interest for me in any way shape or form :)

    Maybe:

    People are just lazy?
    People don't know there is a Rolex forum?
    People think it'll get more exposure in the general forum.

    My point about ignoring them usually, reflects this last idea ... if it's in the rolex forum it's out of sight for me , if it's in the general forum it's fair game

    As i can't afford one i have never been on the Rolex forum but if someone is asking a question about brands in general i.e what do i buy Omega, Breitling, Rolex etc then i does belong here but yes if the question is about a particle brand that as it's own forum then it should be in it's own forum and not here.

    Hardcore Rolex folks goes to the Rolex Forum. It is peaceful, resourceful and responsive there.
