Should this section be revamped?

Postby paizuri » Fri May 27, 2005 2:03 pm

Well, this section didn't quite turn out how I originally envisioned it, so should the rules and format be modified to something that makes more sense and is in line with how it is currently being used? (See poll.)

Also, post any suggestions as to a new format. I haven't quite fleshed out what one would be yet, so I welcome a discussion on the subject.

I say, just move the threads that doesn't have the original intented format to the General Anime or that mod-only forum.

Well, I was thinking the revamped section could be for the discussion of series in general. So there would be threads for each title and then you'd just post in there whatever you wanted to talk about for that show.

For example:

A thread called "Bible Black" would just be about discussing or commenting on that show. People could talk about specific episodes, or their favorite episodes, or just the series in general just as long as the posts were limited to that show or only reference other shows in context to the show that is the thread's namesake.

Basically it would be a Anime Series Discussion section instead of a Episode Discussion.

General Anime would still be for talking about various things in anime in general or for discussing the latest shows being licensed or philosophical debates about characters, etc.

That's my line of thinking anyway.

My question would be do the people who want the threads have to ask a mod and they put the thread up like the recommendation threads or will it be a free for all? If it is a free for all I would be concerned that other series would get lost and then repeated if people don't look all the way in the back pages.

There will be a stickied suggestion thread for people to ask for specific anime threads and then a mod can create it for them if it doesn't already exist. Any thread that is created will have that show be listed in the first post so users can check that first before asking.

I'm for that idea. It would really be nice for starting up specific conversations about the shows themselves, and leave General Anime for more "general" questions.

On the other hand, you will have some pointless threads and spamming. As an example, in an InuYasha main thread, someone could easily post "DOWN WITH INUYASHA!", or start over-spamming, which would go against the good intention of the revamping.

Only if you (or another admin / mod) are willing to watchdog this forum constantly for spamming threads, then by all means, go for it! :D

Or another section just for talking about specific anime, and keep this for specific episodes...

Okay, I think it's been enough time to gather the thoughts of all 15 people who read this section (or care to vote in the poll at any rate). :o

So it sounds like a revamp is in order. I was thinking of just renaming this section and then locking all the current threads but creating the new series-specific threads for all of the ones active and linking to whatever pertinent threads exist in here for reference.

Are there any objections or alternatives to this that you would like instead?

Perhaps there could be a sticky at the top of the thread that is mainly used for suggesting what topics should be here. Like if one person says "I want an evangelion ep 23 thread", and if enough people agree, you can then create one or something

There will be a sticky at the top listing the current open threads and have links to them so that users can just scan through or do a Find on the list to see if the show they want to talk about is in there.

I am thinking to keep it as simple as possible by just naming the series itself. If people want to talk about specific episodes within the threads, that's fine, but trying to impose that people talk about specific episodes here doesn't seem to be working out quite like I imagined it. I generally watch stuff on DVD so I know what episode I'm watching, but if people are watching something on Cartoon Network, they won't necessarily know what episode is playing, so I think it's best to just cut that step out.

Sure there is the risk that a new person posting in a thread will repeat what someone else said, but that happens in the bigger threads anyway.

I'm not totally sure what kind of discussion Bible Black needs (I found the show quite self-explanatory, with all the loose ends pretty well wrapped up). But I've just finished watching it, and I can provide any commentary you want. :)

Can you make sub-forums? You could make a few sub-forums for mor epopular series discussions, like sub-forums for Evangelion, FLCL, etc... and then the rest could go in a general sub-forum. But, of course, you still need to keep the whole thing on topic somehow.

It's tough, especially since we have "General Anime" which is so catch-all, it's hard to tell what belongs there and what doesn't. Like, obviously, newly released episodes of shows that you want to discuss go here, but what about people talking about, like, trying to understand the last two episodes of Evangelion, or trying to figure out the ending of Lain... where do those go?

Hmmm.
