?

Should the forum cut down on the number of mega threads?

  1. Yes - the number of threads that get merged into mega threads is too high

    23 vote(s)
    57.5%
  2. No - I like to consolidate everything about a topic into one thread

    8 vote(s)
    20.0%
  3. Who cares

    9 vote(s)
    22.5%

    I should make it a weekend project to database all of s2, I have a SQL server I could use. I could make the ultimate merged thread! All for my own personal enjoyment!

    You must be new to the board, never having read my Shakespeare before.

    IMO certain times we should have multiple threads, like trade deadline for instance. If I want to read about people’s Fultz takes for example, I’d rather it had its own thread than trying to weed through everyone’s takes on everyone else who did or did not get traded.

    If it’s 20 threads about the same thing, sure combine them.

    I admit, i voted merge only because sometimes the same conversation is happening in multiple threads, but honestly i dont care either way.

    With that said, im curious why you would have to search through all of the posts in a mega thread every time you search for a new piece of information or thought?
    Do you not use the last unread option so each time you open the thread it starts you out right where you left off?
    Never been an issue for me because of this awesome feature.

    I just look for the Mrs. HCP jokes. Could the mods put all of those in a single thread, please?

    I’m fine with small threads except when someone has completely ignored the title of other threads. “Olshey has no balls” is stupid when there is already a “Fire Olshey” thread.

    Well talking about Olsheys lack of inflated spheres may be different than a conversation about Olsheys flammability.
