(I'll start the 'waring': I am a long-term Rugby League fan and I always hated Eddie Waring's patronising schtick. Actually, hate is a strong term in any context!)
Welcome Chris2210. As someone who works on both PCA and Macworld I share your hopes and also a little of your cynicism. But we can but try.
As to your point about content on Macworld.co.uk, all I can say is there are more than 6 million users now, and one year ago there were fewer than one tenth of that. So the editors are doing something right, and I can't see that the content has anything to do with the demise of the forum. More users visit Macworld than ever, they just don't use the forum.
We know from years of experience on the PC Advisor forum that it takes effort to maintain a vibrant online forum. And that is something to which we remain committed.
