More posts in one thread than a lot of forums have had in the past year. Very nice.

Because there's no risk of someone hiding naked teenage girls in threadzilla.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

Because it mostly sucks now except for gullanian and sometimes lirva, all the good posters like obiedman and labarde and and ofenomeno and me are gone and we're left with tards like yarbles and diebitter.

my logic here is sound though, there was a lot of good offtopic discussion in the first one. Now they are all tarded up but RB didnt know what the future would be.

BBV should just be locked completely. Although I did find the one dudes threads about some girl looking like him funny. Not sure who it was a bigger beat for.

I fail to see how that has anything to do with me wanting you to go there and stay there.

You didnt say you wanted that, you just asked a question which I answered.

That answer is "No."

Just start a new omg omg omg and put a rule in place where if you aren't a cool poster then you will be banned for 2 days. No such thing as elitism in that forum anyway. 2incher is like the worst poster in the history of of the internet yet somehow 4L hasn't run him out of town yet. He posted in threadzilla a couple of times and we insta deported him.

this is probably tarding up this thread, but obiedman, labarde, and ofenomeno don't post on kipin either, which is much closer to the old bbv4l. it's basically a given that once you start a super low content thread that nw people aren't going to get it, and pretty much a given that once you start a super low content forum like BBV4L that it's going to degenerate into what it is now.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

The single season subforum doesn't seem to be working. There always seemed to be some chatter in team threads before , during and after games (thinking NFL mainly). Now, everything has dried up with like zero posts after a game sometimes.

The extra click is a hassle - maybe that's it.

I don't see the point of it really - I mean if you are subscribed to your team threads, you see a check mark, so processing a lot of threads is not too difficult.

NFL isn't a great single season team sport to start with. The main reason that traffic is down is because of division threads I'd guess, which are pretty awesome.

Agreed with Franchise, the division threads are actually the main cause of this. I have a hard time with any argument against the subforums now that they've been put into practice, because I have a hard time seeing how the front page of SE hasn't improved drastically since the subforum split.

Another big thing is the new weekly thread.

Those are definitely taking away chatter from other threads.. but they are awesome.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

Yeah, maybe people go to the "official" message boards for team specific stuff. I just checked out the Steelers main one - looks pretty good, better discussions than I thought.

Here, the Steelers and Rams have the same number of posts in their 2009 team threads. Weird.

For some reason, I never check out the division threads - I guess I'm not really interested so much in other teams or trash talking with them.
