An idea, and maybe this issue is solved. Zero, when you see something topic worthy to create a thread for a bigger discussion, make it a thread.

To you, some topics are worthy of a bigger discussion. To others, they aren't worthy. It varies person by person for a lot of the topics that are discussed up there.

I know this.. But like I said, some people don't feel links/topics are worthy of a discussion, hence why they put them in the Fan Shout.

My solution was to create a thread topic on a link that was posted if you feel like it's worthy, whether LTF deems it worthy, Rock, Pack93z, or Zero.

And Shawn, my question about what you said about the gameday chat thing stands. I still don't know how that correlates to this at all. I asked honestly and was looking for an answer, not an accusation that I was over reacting and being condescending. Man, I'm just trying to understand what you're saying so I can properly communicate a response.

I need pictures!!



That wasn't the condescending part in my view.. but by not quoting out the 2092nd part.. I did a poor job.

Anyway...

On how I see them correlating.. NonStop used the context that Shout is not archived or has a narrow window to look back upon. IMO, there is a ton of topic worthy discussion that happens in the game day chat.. yet little of that is carried over to the board, it has a narrow time frame for reference and it is not archived.

IMO.. they are similar in their intentions.. Shout and Chat are rapid fire comments... those spur of the moment quips.. In my view.. shout is a mini non game day version of chat.. or could be.

But that doesn't mean I think it should replace topics as its primary focus.. like you are alluding to, if it is worthy of a topic.. it should be a topic that can carry over more than the short life span of the shout. And I agree.. it should be driven in that direction..

Back to game day chat.. from my limited experiences in there.. it is a community outlet for emotions of the game, observations during the game and mostly unbridled fun.

When I see the shout box.. I think it should be in the same context in terms of those abstract short blips and mostly just to have a little fun with..


I'll add archiving the chat logs as a thing to do in the future. It'll take some research but I can give it a try. I think that's a good idea.

I'd love to, if I had the time, however it's Wednesday and I've put in just shy of 40 hours in at work and have barely had anytime with my daughters this week. I'm completely drained from work and being a father and when I come here, I'd just like to read. Not search for a topic from the shout, find an article and post it. I was kind of hoping some who have a few more spare minutes in their busy day could assist with that. I used to the be main source of content here.

I guess I was just hoping others would pick up the slack in my inexcusable absence.

I don't know if 'expects' is the right word, but more hoping other members could. ;)

The sad part about this, I'm worse at drawing than I am explaining things. Imagine that?

so how come you keep clearing the shout?


Zero2Cool:19-Jan-2011 08:28:43
Wade, considering I have tried that path before and all it did was lay a welcome mat for others to disrespect my intentions.

Zero2Cool:19-Jan-2011 08:42:14
Wade, read below for example one.

IMO.. if shout becomes something that is worthy of becoming a thread.. simply copy it and start a thread.

Most of the time.. if it is worthy.. it is already a thread.. most of the shouts are random.. sometimes football related.. some not.

Quick and easy way of dropping what is on your mind. Example.. Pete King's Player of the year to me.. isn't worthy of a thread.. there would be a 1000 if we quoted all the writers lists.

However the discussion in shout turned into something the caught interest by a poorly done rambling by Mike and Mike and gave a listener a false report of the AP awards.

Cutting and pasting what I just said in the shout (I didnt realize there was a thread here until afterwards).

Wade: actually i sorta think the empty space encourages us to think of the shout [vis-a-vis the forums] the way you want us to. Is there a way you can automate it to clear automatically every hour or two?

Wade: Kevin: ok. Just wondered. It just looks different with the empty space.
