    So BD has brought to my attention that prefix sets might be useful in helping to keep the UBD organised. I dont know how difficult this will be to set up as a system, but if I just thought I should bring it to attention.
    I have multiple sets set up on my forum. Each set took about 5-10 minutes to set up and assign to sections.

    You could make a subforum under General series for "Previous SOTM" and just put the entire monthly subforum as a child forum of the previous forum at the end of the month. This way, (if you want) people can still post in the threads there if they were having an intense discussion, rather than being diverted to a singular thread in Gen Series.



    Example of layout:

    General Series Discussion
    -Comics
    -Series of the Month
    --Previous Series of the Months
    ---Bleach
    ---Attack on Titan
    ---Kingdom (At end of December)



    OR


    General Series Discussion
    -Comics
    -Series of the Month (Current)
    --Previous Series of the Months
    --Bleach
    --Attack on Titan
    --Kingdom (At end of December)

    Allowing posts would mean nearly every SoTM winner will have a section of it's own which goes against the point of it really. Past SotMs should just get locked and have a view-able archive.

    ^ Wouldn't that clog the site too much? Maybe just throw all the threads in the sotm archive sub-section.

    What if discussions are not finished in the section, and when the people who had those discussions try to go back to it, they cannot continue it in a single thread with many other people posting different topics.

    Well then that's just too bad. It's not a series of the month if it lasts for more than a month.

    The site isn't really that big/have that many sections in the first place, I don't think it would matter much either way

    It's not impossible to create separate threads in the GSD section for specific topics

    Yes it is, Pops merges them with the main Bleach thread on sight. So there is no room for separate discussions. It is a horrible policy.

    It's Section of The Month for a reason. Everyone knows that's what would happen.

    People can hold conversations in one thread. Especially with this quote notification add-on. They could even make use of the groups section of the site to make a fan club if the series really is that popular.

    Let me ask you a question Grand Poobah. Compare the Bleach Section of the Month's Activity to the Bleach threads activity. Maintaining the policy of merge on sight is an activity hindering policy. You have a section already made with several ongoing topics, keep it open. Unless you want to hinder growth.

    1/3 of Bleach's activity came from the Guess a Character thread tbh. Not many of the discussion threads gained a lot of steam actually.

    Compare the 2/3 section activity in a single month to the entire single thread's existence. And then tell me how having a separate section doesn't bolster activity numbers.

    Of course it bolsters numbers but what makes Bleach so special that it deserves it's own section? There will be several series' that will have similar levels of activity. I can see Kingdom matching that since it had more posts than Bleach in its first week of existence than Bleach did. And Kingdom has almost doubled that total since. Bleach's activity that month really wasn't that extraordinary.

    It's a perfectly reasonable policy. If a thread is so active that it needs more than one thread, we'll give it it's own section. We're not going to basically make 12 sections a year. If we follow your advice SotM would lose all meaning and within two years we'd suddenly be managing 20+ sections, many of which would plummet in activity after a while.

    You don't want growth you can't handle. It's like having kids you know you won't be able to support. Besides, as Bod stated Bleach's activity as S-TM isn't as impressive as people make it out to be.

    What is the purpose of the SotM

  17. #57
    Main purpose is to look for sections to make permanent.

    Bleach was considered as per member request but looking as Kingdom it doesn't seem like a Bleach section would be able to sustain activity.

    Why is that

    How good does a SoTM have to be for that manga to get its forum.

    I see Pops hadn't responded.

    Pretty much tells me that he has no answer for that. Or intends never to expand.
