This thread is for general suggestions of threads, complaints, or what-have-you.
I’m here to make sure that threads for new episodes are made and everyone plays nice.
It’s kind of weird that, regardless of whichever sub-forum-whatever one clicks on, the six most recent posts anywhere seem to bubble to the top of the list… or it looks like that’s what’s happening right now, anyway. (I’m posting a couple of things tonight to find out.) Considering the lack of traffic at present, that might actually be a good way of staying on top of new stuff, but it also sort of eliminates the whole point of how the boards are already organized. *shrug* I guess we’ll settle into one pattern or another over time.
EDIT: Actually, I’m sort of curious where that pinned list is coming from now, as I’ve just seen things like the new list of forum rules… which seems to be newer than much of the pinned stuff. Is it six really new and/or important things? Is it the six recent postings with the most vowels in them? The answer isn’t going to make or break anyone’s week, I’m sure, but it would be neat to know.
Thanks for the feedback!
Generally, I expect that these will be threads that are the most recent podcast and spoiler episode, important website news, and introductions. These are the items that I think will most interest a new member unfamiliar with the forums.
I’m confused as to where to put the spoiler episode thread. Should it live under Movies or Reviews, since it is about a specific film and also a review? Should it be under Podcast, because it’s a podcast episode? Where would a person new to the message board look?
Rather than confuse any new users, I chose to make these threads “Super Sticky,” which, as you guessed correctly, holds these threads on every Message Board page. As the next episode comes up, I’ll remove the super-stickiness and the thread will only be available in its sub-forum. You can always go to the sub-forum directly from the Super-sticky post, which I think will also help familiarize members with the layout of the message boards.
Also, due to the slight lag, I didn’t want new forum members to become frustrated if it takes some time to optimize the site.
