if there is something new, start a new thread.
Except for the pizza thread.
Yep. The OT is fine.
But the recruiting mega threads end up being a 1/2 dozen people talking to each other. After a couple days, the number of people viewing a thread gets cut in half, and in half again every couple days.
Few people want to wade through 20 pages to find the few replies worth reading.
I know it's a pet peeve, but when I check the server logs I see how few people click on a thread that was started weeks ago. The views are the same dozen people hitting the thread 20 times a day.
After a recruit commits we can merge the threads.
So we're officially getting rid of the recruiting 'megathreads'? Good, they were a wasteland of garbage anyways.
So now there's just gonna be a 1,000 different threads for each recruit. Makes a lot of sense .
That thing is quickly approaching Bible status. I mean, as a road map for life, it's hard to top.
If there are 995 threads with 3 or 4 people participating that are pages down that I never have to look at, then 1000 different threads is fine. We have a game thread for every game instead of one massive game thread encompassing the entire season for a reason.
Someone is going to bump this thread in 2021 just to be an ass.
This would be like having a new thread for every play of each game .
And the beer thread.
Yes - it would be exactly like that.
At least we'll know something new happens when we see a new thread on recruit. Versus the alternative of a 100 page megathread which may have no new news for weeks or months.
I see that all the recruiting threads are locked. What should people do if they just have a question about a recruit or want to post a small little tidbit or piece of video? Create a whole new thread for just that entirely? Seems like those little threads would be more prone to degenerating into nonsense
Yes, you post a new thread.
That post will be active for a day or two and then it'll slide down the board into oblivion - as it should. Threads should have a lifespan of a house fly. Born, live a few days and then die.
The freaking mega threads were the worst idea in the history of the universe and we should have nipped them on day one - I knew they'd be a disaster. They never died, they just devolved into zombie threads with running intra-thread battles overrunning any actual news.
I just set an Outlook reminder.
Seriously I hope this cuts down the blah blah blah , stupid talk and the inertia by at least 27% on this board
You're an optimist! I had no idea.
All threads should be programmed to self destruct after 60 days.
To the Octagon!
Please define "old", Tom. And no selfies please.
News becomes old news when there is new news. Or, if it drops a couple pages back.
First it's old news. Then old posters. Then old folks. I sense a fascist direction here.
Outlook should be obsolete by then, no?
I'm bumping the Diamond Stone and Malik Newman package deal thread after Newman's first 20 point game at Kansas.
Pinning this is the ultimate bump
