Are 3 separate threads needed? [ 59 vote(s) ]
1.Yes 33 / 56%
2.No 26 / 44%

Thoughts?

Seems a little silly that we have 3 threads for a single game, combining all 3 i think would drive more conversation.



This forum has turned into a pessimistic cesspool of bitching and whining about the same topics consistently.

Personally, I like it. It keeps things contextualized. Otherwise you've got people responding to pregame comments the day after the game. But, I'm always open for change.

Maybe they could add 2 more for the intermissions?


You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you can get a lottery pick.

Looks like Len Rhodes just joined the conversation...

We needed 3 threads back when the Oilers were good and actually generated visits and conversation. Now, it's pretty easy to keep track of everything that's said in the three threads.

It does give me the opportunity to really drill a point home by taking that conversation over each of the threads...

Maybe to 548th will be the one that finally fixes the team.

Yes, it is perfect to individually capture the 3 stages of being an Oilers fan every game day. Hope. Anger. Disappointment.

I vote to keep them but rename the 3 threads based on this idea. Sums up the emotional rollercoaster of a game day more often than not.

Those 3 terms are apt, and would apply more times than not.

The pregame and the GDT could be combined, but the Review should remain a separate entity. The dissection, the elation, the p--sing and moaning should remain on its own.

I really think the separation between pre-game and in-game is good too...means you don't have to scroll through a bunch of pre-game posts if you're just trying to catch up on what's happened in a game you haven't been able to watch...

Yeah status quo is ok. I really like how the Review fires up early sometimes, it times well with when I might be giving up. When you're fired up midway through the 3rd, sometimes you don't want to have to wait.

The bot doesn't want to connect, so perhaps this the one thread as a trial night. I'm not trying to figure the issue out at this time.

This reinforces why I like the 3 thread system. We can alway piggyback the pre if the GDT is on vacation.

One thread is pure madness. Boo.

Its nice to separate the discussion, the chatter leading up to the game, during the game play by play, and the elation or agony of the aftermath.

....never voted on an oilfans poll before, but this one matters to me...

.... I like the current setup, hope no changes are made....the game threads are one of the unique things about oilfans that separates it from the bazillion other sites that track the ups and downs of the Oilers....great mixture of opinions and observations throughout the prelude to the game, the game itself, and the aftermath...

I don't see any good points to put it to one or reduce it to two. I mean the original post only called having three threads silly without any particular premise to convince anyone as to the why.

I do have to apply a tweak to the bot code later today/tonight/before tomorrow's pregame thread and will leave the three thread design intact.

Yeah, even with the view mode the smart people use (tree view) it was difficult. Although, with the tree view advantage of easily seeing the posting times. Still, hard to sort through and find when the anger and venting really begins.

You are in tree view? Crazy! I really can't stand anything but flat view. Do you actually click on every individual post then?!?

thanks MJ !


Yeah, even with the view mode the smart people use (tree view) it was difficult. Although, with the tree view advantage of easily seeing the posting times. Still, hard to sort through and find when the anger and venting really begins.


You are in tree view? Crazy! I really can't stand anything but flat view. Do you actually click on every individual post then?!?


I do indeed. And I get to know which posts are new and which I have read already. Also get to know before reading the post who the poster is replying to so I can put myself in the proper frame of mind before I read the post. Tree view is the best.

Wow...that's dedication.

I occasionally click the "replying to" link on posts to see the context, and I usually use the quote, so people know what I'm responding to.

I much prefer just opening the thread once, and then all I need to do is scroll!

But maybe I am not adequately mentally prepared for what I read sometimes as a result!

Dear Lord, man, how do you tell what you've read already or what response was to what....the post #? How can you hold on to your sanity?

At one point, it was harder to follow everything that was going on here, but the traffic has dipped to the point where there's rarely a challenge.

Most people quote the post, and when they don't, there's a little link on the "replying to post #..." that takes you to the post they're replying to.

I found the chaos of the tree view annoyed me. Also tried the nested flat view and didn't like how it wasn't chronological.

I'm sure some of my replies to the last post on a thread don't make any sense in tree view too...I doubt I'm the only one that does that...

Flat OilFan'er reporting in. I used nested view for a few years but got sufficiently annoyed at having to side-scroll occasionally... I actually find myself pseudo-boycotting web content that requires any sort of side-scrolling now. Even those image carousels are starting to produce a heavy sigh of mild annoyance. And when they break long-form text articles into multi-page reads... ugh. Pages are for books and PDFs.

But tree view? I cannot even begin to imagine having to engage with content that way. Wild. Absolutely wild.

Flat view with only one quote deep (no four/five/six quotes nested in each other), now that would be heaven. It might also make tree view easier to use.

Yes, the discerning Oilfan always chooses tree view!

Yes when I opened that thread and saw the stack, it was intimidating! It looked like a damned review thread from the '06 cup run (probably not, but I'm going with it)! I wasn't ready...! The humanity!

Discerning Oilfan...
"Oh no! More than 12 replies to a thread intimidates me".

It's hard to help those who can't see the solution right there in front of them.
