Nobody reads or searches any way. Pretty much every 3rd new post is a request for "should I buy this board" or "tell me about this board", often on one that has been reviewed.

That's weird too, I pretty much only use "active topics", and I have a "last post" arrow. Right to the right of the last posters name. And it seems to work perfectly.

I know but maybe there would be a ton more if there wasn't a review sub forum. You shouldn't cater to the lowest common denominator.

How about a Politics section?



Just kidding...


I'd love to have a "Last page" button on the recent posts list, that's all I ever use. I just use the search feature for everything else.
Maybe add a sticky that detracts people from starting new helmet safety circle-jerk threads to somewhere.

There's just not enough sub forums. We need more like Extreme Cross Country Snowboarding, Kitten Lovers, and stuff like that!

Hmmm.. I already wrote this when Snowolf asked a similar question but thes thread went to nirvana.. anyway.
My opinion: A main "problem" with threads is, that the are dynamic, while their titles and allocation to a sub forum is static. The main objective of a thread / question of OP can change a lot over several pages, thus the title of the thread might not fit the most recent content of the thread. To enable the OP to change the main title / move the tread to a sub that fits the most recent post better could reduce the amount of new threads. Or it could generate a complete mess

Threads certainly become something different than what the op intended. I am not sure we want to reclassify them on the regular. I like your train of thought though.
