Or look for something specific about something in say 'FullMetal Alchemist' I mean thats going to be alot of looking and searching even with the search items. Plus keeping up with people posting will be like hell I'm not saying this is a bad idea at first I was annoyed about it but I think its an actually good idea but we shouldn't just limit it too the series.
My suggestion would be something like this:
FMA: Episodes 1-15
FMA: Episodes 16-30
FMA: Episodes 31-45
Things like that it would make searching for something specific you want to know about something in the series less hectic because you'll have organized topics setup. Just an suggestion but I think it would work pretty well.
So...instead of having one large general topic about the entire series, you would want multiple threads for the same series based on episodes, characters, and other things? How is this less complicated or easier to maintain or find things than having to search through a list that would have less items in it to begin with?
As was evidenced with the original version of the AED, people oftentimes do not know or do not bother to figure out what episodes they are talking about according to its number. It is not entirely their faults either since, if they were watching Cartoon Network, they probably didn't know the episode numbers to begin with. And, if I use your FMA example, wouldn't it be more confusing to have to decide whether or not to talk about Ed or Al in their own character threads or to talk about something that might have happened to them in certain episodes in the episode threads?
I appreciate the suggestion, but with the section revamp I am mainly trying for two things: 1) ease of use and 2) ease of maintenance.
Instead of having to search of episode numbers to figure out which is the correct thread to post in, there will only be one thread that covers the entire series. Also, there is a handy table of contents thread which you can use to find the threads in case they don't happen to be on the first page or two.
Yes, this requires a little more maintenance on the part of the moderators in terms of monitoring the request thread and creating new series threads when asked, as well as keeping the Table of Contents thread updated, but hopefully we will have to do less thread moving/locking because people were not posting threads correctly in the section.
