Pay-Per-View Threads
« on: 31 January 2012, 03:37:10 PM »
I was thinking about how we always have one thread for each PPV, would you guys be against this if we did a thread per big match, and then a general discussion thread for the rest? Sometimes it's hard to follow discussions if we're doing it for a bunch of matches together so it could create more discussion if we focused it. We could try it out for wrestlemania, creating a thread for each big match as it's announced, and keep the rest of the discussion in the thread we already have.

Thoughts?


Think I'll have a wank over these tomorrow.

It sounds like a good idea to me, especially for WrestleMania and because it already seemed like it may go that way with the WrestleMania XXVIII: The Rock vs. John Cena thread.

Ya, but I think I'm going to make that one the general discussion thread, seeing as that's what people have been doing in there, and create a new one for Rock vs. Cena.

The only down side for me is that with both TNA and WWE their might just be too many threads.

I don't think TNA warrants splitting the discussion. I envision for WWE PPVs, the bigs one like Mania will have most of the matches listed in separate threads, but for bigger ones we'll only do 1-2 of the main events.

Exactly my thoughts too. :)

Great idea it will likely get more discussion going on about all of it and honestly i wouldn't mind all the PPV matches having its own thread.

Wouldn't it make sense to split out the Rock vs. Cena posts from the now general WrestleMania XXVIII thread and merge it into the new Rock vs. Cena one (or alternatively change it around - rename the general one back to Rock vs. Cena and rename the from-scratch Rock vs. Cena thread to the general thread and split the non Rock vs. Cena posts from the current general one) instead of starting it completely from scratch?

That was a sentence and a half, wasn't it buddy? :P

I'll split out some of the Rock vs. Cena only discussion I guess. There's a lot of discussion in that thread that isn't about the match.
