But then you've got the whole thing where first someone has to make a decision about whether or not there are enough posts about it and so on. What is the need of having all these super strict 'rules' all the time? It's not North Korea, there's nothing wrong with opening a thread when there is big news or a big competition. If you open a thread for a competition and there's not enough buzz, so be it, it's not the end of Totallympics. 

 

I don't read the general basketball thread, but if someone would open a thread when there's some big news I'd definitely read that, and I think I'm not the only one who'd think like that. It's just so weird and useless to have all these subforums for every sport but have every subforum populated with mostly 1 or sometimes 2-3 active threads. It's almost as if people have some sort of irrational fear for threads, but they don't get in the way and they help in making the entire forum more findable. 

Just to clarify I am not saying that moderators or Sindo will decide which threads need to be opened. We ourselves can decide that. For example, you started Tour de Suisse, someone should have started the French Open Tennis thread and so on.

Ah, yes. I think if someone is interested in opening a thread about a specific tournament or competition, that should almost be reason enough to do so. If it turns out there's no interest, it'll fade away by itself and there's nothing lost.

I'm not sure neither but I doubt there's a lot of hosting difference between these two examples:

 

Example 1: 5 threads with 100 posts each

Example 2: 100 threads with 5 posts each

 

In both examples there's 500 posts :p

That should be fine of course, but it shouldn't be some sort of forced rule. I wouldn't open a thread if it's obligated to post all kinds of podiums and whatnot and everything in a forced exact same way etc. Someone who wants to do that should do that, someone who doesn't want to do that shouldn't have to do that (and should still be allowed to open a thread without the opening post being changed to fit the exact strict format for example).

I understand the point. The general discussion thread is necessary, because we can not have thousands of threads with just few posts inside each of them, but I agree some threads should be separated, otherwise  after few months it will be impossible to find comments about an event held at the start of the year in a thread with many replies.

 

My plan for the future is to decide whether a thread "deserves" to be by its own instead of inside the general thread with an objective criteria. The objective criteria is of course how many replies there are about that subject (event-news-general thread, whatever). This is not so easy though because there is not an automatic tool which could split the thread, it should be handled by a person who would split and/or merge threads.

 

I think this could be a daily "job" for someone who wants to become a moderator and take care of this on a daily basis, checking all the threads and splitting them according to the objective criteria we will have decided. I can not do that right now because I am working far from my home until the end of the year and I want to spend my time on Totallympics mainly on the results portal.     

 

Any volounteers ? :d

@Melonade Have you actually found the forum searching for something about Tour de Suisse? :d Or you already knew the forum since some time? Just a curiosity which could help us to understand if splitting the thread could help to find more users in the future.

I agree with @heywoodu. There is a definite need for more sub-forums here. In the old forum I was way more up-to-date and active in terms of discovering and discussing about events and sports that I generally would not encounter. But here it tends to pass me by because as heywoodu pointed out, I won't click into some threads like "Basketball Discussion Thread" because it generally doesn't interest me. But I probably would click into a thread called "Basketball European Championship News" or something similar to keep myself informed and maybe get a grasp of what is happening.

 

This could very well be a way to find more users. This forum really needs some fresh blood and hopefully they will have more ideas of how to make it better again. Plus the more users we gain, the greater the chances of gaining more users as more and more people discover Totallympics and spread the news.
