Let's say, hypothetically, after 100 posts, or 5 days we lock the thread so it doesn't get stale. And if it goes off-coure before hand we'd lock it then. Threads such as Super Happy Fun, Question 3, and game day threads are exempt.

We mods are just tossing around some ideas and want to get your input as well. Keep in mind though that Matty is away for the weekend so no real changes will be implemented until he gets back next week.
auto-locking and max post counts are a lot of work and they won't please anyone... when you have a progresional topic though, like the cba/how can we get under thing, after a while it'd make sense to take the collective solutions and answers an summarize them in a sticky or something... so instead of 200 posts of reading, someone can be caught up in under 5minutes.

the problem is digging out the answers to where everyone sees them to prevent (literally) hundreds of repeated questions in under a week... sometimes (like the cba thread again) it takes us days to actually figure out the answers and be comfortable that our conclusions are correct.

Re: Over-Merging of threads?

My suggestion is that the moderators focus on seeing that threads are labelled clearly and that any debate doesn't disintegrate into personal attacks.

What difference does it make to the rest of us if two or three posters want to rehash the Brunell-Ramsey topic? We're not obligated to read it.

As for limiting the number of posts, I don't see the sense in that. Recently, while lurking on a Dophins board, I came across a 700+ posts thread discussing the 2006 draft that was the most interesting I've come across on fansites. The main posters were very knowledgeable. If they weren't Dolphins' scouts, they could have been.

Re: Over-Merging of threads?

I didn't meant his as any sort of attack on TWP staff, most people I think are a bit timid because of the duplicate thread posts and was just an idea.

I don't think anyone has taken your posts as an attack. Well Mattyk might have, but that's only because he has a huge ego.

Re: Over-Merging of threads?

I've noticed that not many threads are getting merged over the last 12 hours or so, and just wanted to offer my comments on it. I like it. There are a bunch of crap threads out there now that weren't there before, but you know what? I just skip them. I find myself naturally gravitating towards the quality threads with quality discussion going on.

Taylor Jacobs once tried to have "sex" with a "girl" but then he found he had female parts.

Re: Over-Merging of threads?

Make me a moderator - I'll merge everything into one SuperThread and move it to the Parking Lot.
