Every time I come back to post, I decide not to because these threads are too long and I don't want to read them and I don't want to post before I read them. I think I am going to lock and move to memory lane the threads that are over X pages long. Give me feedback first.

Nah. Keep'em long.

Unrelated, the "View Active Topics" link seems to be broken as of today.

I'm a fan of consolidation, especially when there's literally no point to moving the thread so another can be made, as Shadow gives a good reason for, if there's no actual (technical) issues with the first one. I'd rather just back through the current thread rather than go hunt down an old thread for the same purpose.

Really: what purpose does the splitting a random-topic thread actually have?

The threads I was looking at:

570 - What Games are you all Playing?

309 - Recommend Me a Movie

88 - The Official Book Thread (This is not really official btw)

219 - What are you listening to?

610 - And it made me __________

Only one of these is even arguably a "random-topic" thread. No one is going back and reading the Game/Movie/Book/Music threads and starting over with a new effort-post OP would probably be worthwhile.

I support memlaning

570 - What Games are you all Playing?
309 - Recommend Me a Movie
219 - What are you listening to?
610 - And it made me __________

There's really no reason to have them be that big.

We could institute a policy that whenever a thread reaches 100 pages it is Memory-Laned and created anew.

But I'm not really clear on what the problem is with them being as long as they are.

I've looked back more than ten pages on the book thread, the music thread, and the ebaumsworld thread. I also once recently looked back to find the episode where orual left.

Depends on the various periods in which I'm not keeping up with the forums. Really the only one would be the AIMMS thread, which is the only one that really gets enough posts to where it can grow an easy 10+ pages if a week has lapsed.

Hell, periodically someone makes a post in it about how they were rummaging through some of the more ancient posting and make the expected wistful remarks in regards to the times and people long gone. Then we get all teary-eyed and discuss our emotions on the matters while reflecting on the perspectives of then and now.

Really, the AIMMS thread is the only one I advocate leaving intact. The others don't really matter at all, though moving them over doesn't really have a point either. I guess if it makes you feel better?

If we were really organized, we'd get rid of the megathreads and create movie, music, and games forums.

We don't make threads anymore. It all goes into a megathread. The megathreads are daunting to look at, and make people that don't post often less likely to.

This also means that good threads can't be memlaned, because they're trapped inside the megathreads. When something DOES warrant splitting, its insane to try to do it because of the sheer number of posts in the thread.

I'd really like us to move away from the megathreads in general, really. Make more threads.

Memlaning threads would actually make them easier to look through, as it would separate them into more manageable chunks.
