View Full Version : February is "No Megathread" Month

For a variety of reasons, including seeing if it will better or worsen the quality of forums, as well as seeing how megathreads affect server load, February will be no megathread month.

I haven't figured out all the specifics yet, but for example:

- The Crazy News thread will be closed. Any news stories worthy of posting can be made in GBS instead, and if there are a large amount of them we'll create a special forum just for them.

- Mods will be more active in splitting posts out. For example if a thread on a video game in the XBox 360 thread has about 6-10 posts about it within a short period, and the mod feels that there will be more discussion about it, they will move this to a whole new thread.

- Threads like "Things that stick in my craw" and the "GB&NI Banter" thread will remain as one thread, however will have a cut-off time. It'll either be every month, or every 500/1000 posts. I'm not 100% sure on that yet, and will be looking into it further. At that time, the thread will be closed, archived, and a new thread will be created.

Anyway that's just an example of some things that will happen. It'll be taking place around February 6th-7th, and last for at least the whole month, then we'll go from there.

Proceed with inevitable dramabomb now.

I guess it would stop that Welsh Cunt having all the monies for our glorious FRED. And it would give the cunts something to moan about having to put our FRED on ignore every month.

Things like TV/Movie news are probably worth keeping open as much of what is posted is 'b' level news. While the big stuff can get it's own thread, it's probably better having just one for the rest, especially that as a few weeks later it's old news, and not worth archiving as it really isn't something anyone will be going back to read again.

Eh I think the megathreads should be locked and recreated every 4 months or so.

"Things That Stick In My Craw Quarterly" is a great idea

You backed down fairly quick from that argument. Pussy.

Yes I think the idea of some threads being closed and recreated once a month, and others every time they hit x amount of posts it will work out better.

I don't see the purpose of creating multiple Craw and such threads. Are people scared to open them or something if they get too big?

If I come up to Newcastle I'll be knocking seven shades of shite out of you, then letting Taff fuck you up the arse while I take pictures.

For things like the craw thread specifically - it's mainly about system resources and the amount they take up every time someone reads it or posts in it.

Aye, whatever. Jimmy Hill and all that shite.

And I bet you love taking pictures of men having bum fun with each other. Couple of poofters, you two are. I swear to God, I'll batter both of yous. And now "fanny batter", like I'm sure you two would love.

Very poorly. We don't do starting new threads and would prefer to bring back old ones.

I think you should be a mod too. You seem to care about this stuff.

The mod forum is just reports, bender and Tucho doing simpsons quotes, vern making bad jokes, ormie attempting to justify another bout of ridiculous modding and tucho apologising for touching any mod buttons.

I'm going to postpone this until I do the big forum upgrade later this month, and just tie it in with that. I'd rather do everything all at once(as I plan on devoting about 3 days on NPP) rather than space it out.

I gotta agree with Tucho, while I'm ok with AIDS having a shitty layout this crosses the line (TM TNA).
