It's not getting any better. 2. I want to ask the mods this question. How many Death Stranding threads were locked in November with a mod saying "this could be discussed in the OT"? 10? 20? Is there really no way to apply that rule to EtcetEra? How many Star Wars threads were created in November? 40? 50? I think in the last week there has been 20+. And I'm not counting OT threads like Mandalorian or the Star Wars Leaks. Does new news = new thread really triumph over everything? And it's not even news for a lot of these topics. Just dumb nerd arguments about what movie you like more. And I acknowledge that using "dumb nerd arguments" is not doing me any favors. I'm being flippant. 3. I know I'm getting close to making the "Does Jim Sterling need a thread for every video?" argument. I'm not trying to make that argument. And I'm also not advocating for mods to do more work. These threads can still exist but they can be quarantined in a different section of Resetera. The people that want them can see them and discuss them. And the people that don't can easily avoid them. There is a reason we don't have Gaming and Etcetera combined. 4. Yes I use the ignore thread feature. I also use the ignore person feature. It's not enough. And if I ignore everyone that makes dumb threads than this place is quickly going to turn into a Fat4all blog. 5. Seeing threads titled "629 Pakistani girls sold as brides to China" right next to "Episode 9 is the last chance for John Williams" is desensitizing as hell. That's probably not having great long term effects on my puny monkeyman brain. 6. I know the admins tried changing the way the forums were laid out before (putting hangouts with other stuff). I forget exactly what they did and am unable to find a link to the announcement and backlash threads. But that's why I propose keeping the other 3 forums the same and simply splitting EctcetEra into different subforums. Why are we still beholden to the way GAF set things up? Is there no consideration for new subforums? can we at least have this discussion? This post might be a bit scatterbrained but I know there are fellow members that feel the same way as I do.
