(Am assuming this isn't actually an objection to RGL being linked from
, but more of a question that popped into your head when you
read this thread.)
I've tweaked the wording on the front page a bit to emphasize that we're
mostly interested in pubs and restaurants (those being the things that the
current regular contributors are interested in) - does that help?
Basically, as I see it, the difference is that while OGL is intended to be
a fully comprehensive guide to London, accessible to tourists and residents
alike, RGL is much more focused on being of use mainly to its core
contributors. So we don't have articles on things that London residents
will already know all about; and the addon search scripts that I write are
aimed at people who know roughly what they're after.
Our current main contributors are into real ale and cider, restaurants, Tube
and rail stations, and craft shops. If this changes, the focus will change,
but I'm wary of expanding the focus too much unless I know there are
reliable people who'll keep their "sections" up to date.
Earle might be able to add to this comparison - I've not spoken to him
recently about his current goals for OGL.
