haha, is a problem that mega threads face

 

Rather than just laughing at the problem, perhaps try fixing it? Obvious solution woud be post limits like many other sites use, aswell as limiting unnecessary post by not allowing pointless spam and having tournament/general play session/Nintendo Direct/etc. post in their own threads.

Enforcing what people can and can not do is not the purpose of this thread because this is supposed to be a place where anyone can talk anything about Nintendo. Spam will always be there and people will step in if they get out of hand, but is best to leave it open for what topics people would like to discuss. Something random like what coloured Link is the best (Red is awesome, btw) may seem like random spam to some but it's nice to not feel pressured for what you can and can not post

But given how quite these days are, I don't really have too much of a worry about things getting out of hand to be honest

The fundamental problem is in the nature of the mega thread itself, where posts get buried, even all posts are news related and in 'regulation' A quick fix may be to start anew, but that only is a temporary measure and is quite messy.

I've thought of ways like linking said news in the title to the OP but is pretty time consuming and the OP isn't viewed regularly, as the discussion is at the end of the thread

Thanks for the input though, as ideas are always nice to discuss over

Hah, good one!

Fair enough on what can be discussed, but still having a post limit only helps. Sifting through even 1,000 post is far easier than 10,000, and each 1,000 post thread would essentially have it's own identity based on the discussions in it, which will help with remembering when and where certain things were talked about. For me with 25 post per, this thread has an unmanageable 568 pages, whereas a 1,000 post thread would have an easily skimmable 40.

It does get really tedious when I try to dig back on a post even if it was posted like a week ago =.=

Doesn't really help that I use 10 posts per page, but I like to keep links of posts that are worth tracking, like the in-thread rules posts and the poll results. Not the best way but something that could be done?

Whut? I just said what should be done; make a new Nintendomination thread everytime it reaches 1000 (or 800, 500, whatever) post, problem solved!

Isn't the obvious solution to put the content that the headline advertises in the OP?

But that's too much hassle for a thread creator to match his title with the first post.

Yeah, I guess we have to go with the other solution of forcing the thread to be shorter and start it over again every 1,000 posts. Because, you know, going through 1,000 posts (that's only 20 pages at 50 posts per page) to find what you are looking for isn't a hassle at all.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

That wont work either.

Really, the only way is to have all the info from the title linked in the first post; but Platina has to be up to it.

Yes it will. Do you think threads automatically start with the post limit reached? No, they start at 0, thus for a good amount of time it will be very easily manageable. You certainly can't deny that it's far better than just letting the thread go on forever.

Restarting a thread is not really a good way to deal with the overflow in posts. It's true that by refreshing each time, you won't need to go through piles of messages to find the one you are looking for, but by creating a new thread each time is really messy.

If there is a thread of 14000 posts and you are looking for a news link, you wouldn't sift through the first 10000 posts anyways since it would be already dated anyways. If it's really on your mind, you could just ask and somebody should be able to help that person out. (but honestly, a quick google would work too..)

People tag the thread so when a new one is made, it is difficult to find since we may well be on the 3rd refresh if they are away for a month or 2. It takes time to settle down after a new thread is made (and yes, this is a new Nintendomination) so it would be really confusing and messy. If you read a great post and wanted to respond to that user, it's possible that the message is locked in the older thread, making it impossible to tag that person in the new one if they have yet to retag

I feel that if we do try a new thread, it would be a lot more difficult to redirect information from this thread (which would be locked) Having to shift gears just causes confusion, especially if there was a tournament nearing the 1000+ post mark

It doesn't hurt to re-post information, and I will definitely help out if somebody asks for information like what time the Splatoon Testfire is happening. Realistically, this thread definitely won't go on forever to the 100 000+ mark (as much as I would like that to happen) I've seen the Amazon thread which refreshes every month but also other threads like COMG which still works out well, even though the newest information is still buried within posts and not linked on the OP

I'll take this into consideration
