It's no mystery that while there is a healthy contingent of US members at RD, races in our time zone are few and far between. That's no fault of the staff, as over the years they have tried their best to improve things. I remember when we had EU and US races (basically the same race in 2 different time zones) and other things to try to make RD more friendly to its US audience. The fault is ours. Already some races attracted no ore than 5 or 6 members, then when you actually showed up, 3 would be there. It was disappointing and I don't think it's going to get better. I am on the west coast so for me things are even worse. I have the east coast about 3 hours to my right, but then unless volcanism really picks up in the pacific ocean or people start simracing on merchant vessels, there is nobody until we get to Japan. It's frustrating. Anyway, here are some ideas that may help improve things and should be fairly low maintenance: 1) Americas sub-forum: This could be a good way to connect US, Canadian, and Latin American members and discuss how to make things better, organize races and so forth. Eventually it can be broken up with its own sub-forums for leagues and pickup races, but for starters it could be useful to experiment with a sense of community. In fact, I would call it "The Americas" and try to involve central and south america as well. 2) Flags or continental marks on profile pictures. I am thinking of something that tells us at a glance where a member is from. This would also be nice in the "buy and sell" area as more than once I have seen things I wanted and then noticed the price in EUROs. 3) Make the US "club" Sim Agnostic. Somehow the US moderators coordinators should be able to access races in all Sims. One easy way to do that would be simply to make the races the same as the EURO ones, only give the Admin the ability to manage it at another time. Since I don't know how this works, I'll leave it to you to find a viable way. 4) My fourth suggestion is to find a way to rent servers to leagues the way iRacing does. I think it could be a good source of revenue for RD. Something for you guys to consider.
