So threads that are like "Rate BLANK Press Conference" are a no go?

Those are fine.

Is not the Square conference starting right now?

Where is that topic?



This is a pretty common thing on most forums to do at E3. The problem with these reaction thread are that people make to many. Most of the time they already being discussed in the mega thread or the game announcement thread and it ends up fracturing discussion into several reaction threads. Its not healthy discussion. And anyone who is dying to make a reaction thread, wait a week when the rule goes away. Your OP will turn out to be better by then any ways, there will probably be an interview based on what your reaction would be and it will provide a much more healthy discussion to happen.

2 years ago during Nintendo's horrible E3, we got soooooo many reaction threads on the same thing over and over again. It brought the site down and it made discussion highly fractured.

Well said. I'm glad someone remembers the havoc of that.

I think it’s a stupid idea, it just kills hype around the biggest game season of the year.

How is it killing hype? you can still talk about these things.

It’s restricting freedom of expression.  If Spurge wants to make a “Holy shitballs Fortnite is coming to Switch tomorrow!” thread, he should be free to do so.  If people want to discuss something specific from a conference rather that try to have that discussion among another dozen announcements, they should be encouraged.  A barrage of threads on e3 days is part of the fun.  This new rule is only because some people’s personalities crave structure and order.  I don’t care if you organize your game collection alphabetically, by genre, or colour of the cover, but blocking hyped-up reaction threads merely makes this place more bland, and drives me to seek hype discussions elsewhere.

People can follow the rules, especially when the Bossman has spoketh.

A barrage of threads during these days can also cause things to slow, create clutter, and actually halt progression. Also, the type of thread you mentioned for Fortnite is not what we're talking about. That would be an announcement, and as long as no one else has created a topic like it, something like that is okay. What we don't need are a zillion opinion pieces on any of the conferences, or multiple topics about a specific announcement/game.



                                                                                                                                            

Not a big fan of this but the farther this thread goes the less restrictive it sounds. I do want to say though that up until today "hot topics" was getting a little stagnant where I would see the same thread(s) day after day. Today is the first time in a while where everything in Hot Topics was new to me.
