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!


To view links or images in signatures your post count must be 10 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
Because someone has to call it how they see it!

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.
