At the end of every season I try to analyse what went well and what didn’t with the forum during season.
I’d like to your feedback and ideas for what can be done better here.
I believe the structure of having individual subforms for each round has worked well for many years and I see no reason to change this, however I’ve thought of some other ideas that may or may not work.
1 - Dedicated Player Threads.
These threads are created by admins (they can be requested) and there is one per player. While threads and posts can be created about players in the individual Contract, Round or General forums, these individual threads will be a place where people can specifically discuss the player.
Think along the lines of “The Lote Thread”
I think it would be nice to see a complete history of discussions and comments about a player. The thread may start when they are still in the NYC and it may last until they retire, with thousands of posts over a decade or more.
2 - A Newsroom Subforum
A forum where news articles are posted and discussed. I’ve seen this on other forums. The downside about this idea is that if there are multiple articles about the same topic, posts get lost between threads; is it better that these threads are just merged into one?
3 - A Tipping Subforum
Specifically for you guys who like to do this tipping stuff. I’ll also filter these threads from the “Recent Forum Topics” panel on the side of the site, so that it doesn’t get clogged up with the millions of comps that you guys run :roll
There are some ideas.
Do you have any more?
