Works well right now. People are criticized for making separate threads, yes, but the thing that annoys me is if they create a separate thread asking something that's already been answered in the main thread.This would be looking at how we should organize Event Help for next year.
There should only be one thread per event.
-This is kinda what has been going on this season. There's a main thread for each event and people are criticized for making separate threads.
Not opposed to this, but the specific question would have to be quite involved and warrant a separate thread. No need to have a bunch of small threads with all sorts of general questions - the main threads are not that frequently used to warrant branching off other threads in almost all cases.There should be one main thread and specific questions can be asked in separate threads.
-This would still have the "Unofficial Scrambler thread" or whatever, but if someone had a specific question (like egg mounts, axle lubricants, etc...not "HALP ME PLS") those could be in separate threads.
Too messy and hard to follow.There should not be a main thread; questions should be addressed in separate threads or by genre or whatever naturally happens.
-Basically a free for all.
NO! I don't have hours to go through the different forums. Having too many categories in a forum is bad. Right now there's not even a page of new replies a day in each of the existing forums - no need to make it a pain.There should just be a separate forum for every event.
-Sounds like a lot of trouble to click through all those forums...but would keep stuff really organized.
I think subdividing into three event types keeps the clutter down enough, and again, the usage of these forums/threads is not frequent enough to subdivide it to such an extent.There should only be a separate forum for the high traffic events
-We used to do this for Mission Possible and Wright Stuff, since they generated so many questions and responses. If we had done it for this season, it would probably would have been a couple of the building events. Once there is a specific forum for an event, threads for specific questions/problems follows pretty naturally.
I agree. Having a seperate thread for specific things (eg backstops for Scrambler) could be nice, but it could (and would probably be) to be too much. It would most likely be easier to just stick with what we have now and criticise people for starting new threads for already existing events.i only want one thread its hard enough now to keep track
