This is where I disagree. I thought PWO had the perfect balance. It allowed megathreads but kept them in their folder, while still encouraging discussion. Many boards become hypocritical in this regard. Administrators speak out against megathreads, but it turns out to be megathreads they don't like, but other megathreads are just fine. The WWE Network thread is 136 pages. Should the megathreads about Ric Flair, JR (which has become a catch all JR thread instead of a how horrible he is thread), Meltzer and Keller be closed?
That was the post-WM RAW which is traditionally the biggest RAW of the year. Of course it deserves its own thread, but when WWE goes back into its lulls, a catch-all thread to discuss WWE is more than appropriate. It's much more convenient to read one thread than wading through topic after topic, and that's what the site has turned into since you closed the thread.
That I agree with.
I like topics too but you can absolutely overload a main page with topics, and that seems to be what's happening here. I, and a lot of other posters apparently, like having a bullshit thread where they can post their random thoughts and move on for the day. Not everyone is you and likes creating topics and seeing new topics. Sometimes a one-off comment is all it takes. That seems to be the sentiment in this thread.
I was one of those people. It felt like spamming at one point and it was annoying how each thread seemed to have its own parameters of what we could and couldn't discuss. I just want to talk Mania, I don't feel like going into five different threads to discuss it in.
There should be a balance obviously and before the megathreads were struck down, I thought PWO was doing a perfect job of maintaining that balance. Now...not so much.
I completely disagree with this. As a new member, I enjoy seeing big catch all threads, especially ones about Flair or JR or others. For a comments thread, I think you know what it is on the outset and can jump right in. Same with Current WWE. It says what you're supposed to discuss right on the title.
And while it's your board and of course you do what you want, in an ideal world, moderators and administrators should be working to make the board better for its members. I DON'T LIKE THESE TWO THREADS AND I WILL CLOSE THEM I HAVE SPOKEN is not that.
So you're closing one megathread to create another megathread.
Disagree. It's a perfect one-off comment for a bullshit thoughts thread. Not everyone likes starting threads, which is why comments threads are a nice balance.
All four of those topics you proposed are basically megathreads. Goofy questions thread...also megathread.
So, no you didn't. What would've been the harm in starting a thread in feedback saying me and Loss are thinking of closing Comments and Current WWE thread and here's why and let posters discuss and debate it. The reaction to this been almost all negative, which shows that you aren't listening to what people prefer.
No, it's what random thoughts threads like those comments threads are for.
Creating too many topics leads to the same thing.
