If 'leading' is a problem for you, you can use 'authoritative' surely as implied by the name of this web site, and hence its responsibilities.
Again, the concept of being a leader makes very little sense to me in this context.

I don't have a problem with the word, though, I just don't see things in that way.

I'm generally less obsessed with winners and losers - and I think it's quite enough to do things the way you want to, in the best way you can. There will always be supporters and detractors - and being a "leader" in such a tiny group of established RPG sites is not something I would personally concern myself with.

However, as I said - if that's indeed the goal of the people running the site, then I won't stand in their way.

I'll be quite happy not knowing who's an authority and who isn't - because it won't have any effect on my own personal opinions or my thought process.

I consider RPGWatch to be the most balanced site I know of that happens to deal with a subject very close to my heart. I generally like the members and I respect the level of information shared between us quite a bit.

That's much more than enough for me, and the work behind it is greatly appreciated. I hope it's ok that I don't think of it as a leader or an authority. No one leads or governs what amounts to the spreading of news and the exchange of opinions - as far as I'm concerned.
