Rule #6: 6: Constructive criticism and a healthy questioning of the Moderators is welcome, however outright criticism and 'bashing' of Moderators will not be tolerated. The weight of the infraction is up to our discretion. I couldn't see a "Suggestions" board here, so I assume this post is ok... As the title states, this board is impossible to read guys. For those of us who don't visit here 10 times a day, you can't find any news as everything is combined into giant threads. eg. I just clicked on the "#18: Michael Hurley - 5 goals against Brisbane" thread to have a read, only to be confronted by a "Welcome to Essendon Michael Hurley" post from 2008. So basically, to read what people have to say about his 5 goals against Brisbane, I have to go to the last page, and then start clicking back pages to find the latest post/news! It's ridiculous guys. I've been on these boards for over 10 years now, and I can rarely even be bothered coming to this particular board anymore as everything is combined into giant threads and I know I'm not going to find anything. Can the mods please just let new threads live? (I'm assuming a mod has combined the threads) I mean, if 2 people start a thread about Hurley's 5 goals against Brisbane, then sure - combine them! That makes perfect sense! But to combine anything about a particular player into one giant thread is just ludicrous and pointless, and defeats the entire purpose of having separate threads for separate discussions. This board has been like this for a while now, and it's got to stop unless you want to destroy this board entirely. Trying to find news on injuries is the same. It's all buried in one long "injuries" thread. It's as though whoever is moderating this board has a serious case of OCD and can't sleep at night until everything's neat and tidy and in its place. Well, it might look neat and tidy, but in reality, you've created a giant mess guys, as it's nearly impossible to find anything. (it's like having separate drawers for all your sock, jocks, t-shirts, etc.... and then throwing the drawers away and putting everything in one box. "Hey! It's all in there! You can find it!" Sure you can, but not as easily and painlessly as you could if it were neatly labelled in it's own separate drawer... which is the entire point of having threads with titles guys!) Seriously, what is so wrong with new threads? Even if they only last a page, so what? Who cares? At least things would be easy to find. Why does every thread have to go for 50 pages? Another example: "#39: Heath Hocking - Better than Brad Sewell? (Multi-page thread 1 2 3 4 5 ... Last Page)" Again, you open the thread, and you're confronted by a post from July 2007! Why? Can't there be a separate thread discussing whether or not Heath Hocking is better than Brad Sewell? Can't we have a separate thread discussing Michael Hurley's 5 goals against Brisbane? And what about any previous Heath Hocking or Michael Hurley (or any other player) discussions? What if somebody wants to dig up a particular conversation or post to make a follow-up point to something that was said earlier? It's impossible. You have to dig through multiple pages trying to find the discussion/post rather than just doing a quick "search" for the thread (which has been rendered completely useless now on the Essendon board) all because the moderator(s) decided it would be a bright idea to combine everything that is ever posted about each player into one single thread. Please consider what I'm saying, and what you're doing to this board in the process. It's used to be my go-to place for up-to-date Essendon info. A quick scan of the 1st page and I'd see something that interested me, read it and maybe post occasionally. Now, however? It's impossible. I'm open to discussing the reasons why mods feel the need to do this on this board. But for the moment, that's my 2c.
