Then I will no longer participate in the review threads. I feel forum participants should be free to post their own reviews in their own threads so that participants can respond directly to specific views. Having an aggregate thread makes that disorganized and the threads too long. This forces every one to have to align in a single thread at a single time.
That’s just not feasible IMO. I travel abroad and might forget. Better to play it safe and opt out.
I agree with the Count. One thread sounds good in theory but it could get cumbersome after a while. I see the point of not having 20 posters start 20 threads but this forum has been fine for years without a "one thread for one issue" rule. Alvaro's by no means gets CBR traffic and I don't think multiple threads are necessarily a bad thing. The CBR comparison, IMO, doesn't really hold up anyway because I can go to their forum and find thoughts on the debut issue on several threads and locations. It's actually harder there to find consolidated thoughts on the book than it is here.
What constitutes a "side topic"? What if someone wanted to start a thread specifically about the Doom backup story in the latest issue? Since that is part of the issue would it be merged with the original review thread? I think that would be more work for the moderators.
I'll certainly abide by whatever rules are stated. I think that, at least in regards to the return issue, a story that has FF fans excited and eager to post thoughts, multiple threads would be expected.
