Because I post in it of course.
This is definitely
a determining factor for my being here.

I've said this on other sites, so may as well say it here.
RMN is great for hosting and finding tons of games, but you don't always get the feedback you need, and navigating the forums is not entirely easy.
RMVX is great for anything related to RPG Maker VX (scripts, tutorials, and games), but you don't get the opportunity of seeing other game makers in progress.
RRR seems to take a little from both sites by implementing a Game Site as well as bringing in a lot of VX developers and game players. In addition it's a great site for feedback. The big downside is that we don't have as many hosted games as RMN but that could always change, and tutorials appear to be lacking.
On the plus side (and slightly off topic), we recently got Kelsper to bring over his "Beginner's Guide to RMVX". In the 3rd posting he's even included a "dl" for the pdf file. Just shy of 130 pages, and originally began by Benko, this details just about everything in the VX editor from scratch to advanced, in a sort of show and tell way as it has you follow along building your own rpg. So we are getting new tutorials coming in, and I'd encourage every newbie (and oldie) to take a look at it, because a lot of that info can easily be used with other editors.
If there is a way for him to have it pinned, I'd definitely encourage it.
So back on topic (slightly)... as you can tell, I'm excited to be on this site and tend to get carried away.
Very good points, and I agree with you that more tutorials would be grand. That one, by the way, is extremely thorough and well done.
Of course it is difficult to build something to that degree, which is why it isn't as common, but I certainly would love to see something like that done with other Makers. =]
