There is a ton of recruiting information, from offers, to scouting reports, to video clips, to social media follows. Now about 1% of that can be shared here. Nobody's making umpteen threads to cover each piece of info.Makes me sad. I like the general recruit threads instead of having to remember a specific player’s name. Threads like this are good archives of thoughts - if people are behaving, I vote they stay (and yes, I realize that the boneyard is not a democracy and I may be in the minority here *shrug*)
Admin has an animus towards mega-threads, especially recruiting mega-threads and it isn't new.
His playhouse, his rules.
There ought to be something between mega-threads and umpteen threads covering umpteen pieces of news. I'm sorry I can't explicate a magic thread size solution, but maybe I can shed a little light.Nobody's making umpteen threads to cover each piece of info.
If the issue is simply one of length I'd think a marker could be set where a new fresh thread gets made every 20, 30, 50, whatever pages. That'll be a new thread on the topic probably every month or so depending on the time of year, but it's better than not having a thread at all.
How about simply a monthly thread? September Recruiting Thread, October Recruiting Thread, etc.? Does that sound viable? Or just stupid?
I get that new posters would have a lot to catch up on, but they'd have that anyway if every recruit tidbit got its own thread, only in that case they'd have to find all the threads before digging in. That's why I thought one thread was the way to go when I suggested it years ago.
And I encouraged you and pinned it.
Of course, it wasn't my head being offered.
Because there where many young, tall, female athletes are turning to now. It has been discussed on this board recently and last year. Also, it's not just the tall ones who are turning to volleyball.On a related note. Why do most D1 volleyball teams have 2 or 3 athletic 6"2"+ players? And there are probably less than 10 athletic 6'2"+ post players in the 2020 basketball class in the entire country?
Fair enough.The problem with mega-threads as I understand it is that they're discouraging to first-time users.
