Sub forums for each team?

Recommended Posts

Should we have a sub forum for all things each team with the main CPL forum? CFL.ca is a good example. Not sure if even possible and may not be the right answer but worthy of a discussion

I was just going to post on a related subject, PR. 

I agree though, I believe every club should have its season thread, on this CPL page.

And then anyone who wants, if they are going to watch and follow and comment, does a standard game thread, with teams, home first, and saying "Game Thread".

A date could be added but I think that will be clear enough over the season. 

Eg, today's: Pacific FC -HFX Wanderers, Game Thread, and optionally 29/4/19

I'll create the sub forums today

I think for the standard, game thread should be a prefix.  

There are prefix/suffic options for threads. I'll look at them after lunch.

Just eliminate the standard Season Threads I just created for Forge and York9 if you do so, no problem.

Saw the sub forums, looks good. One suggestion would be to significantly shrink the size of the crests so you don't have to scroll so far to access the general forums. :)

Added them, but I am little pissed off at the default layout. 

Why they think that is a good idea is beyond me. 

Looking for a solution

What about a sub forum just for Game Threads for now?

If you have .... 

Game Thread - Apr 29th - Goderich FC vs Moosejaw FC

Which forum does it go into?  Goderich or Moosejaw?

Will there be that much information to have a sub forum for each team? Better have everything here..1 general thread for each team and 1 match thread for each game so around 100-120 threads in 6 months

Yeah, I am not convinced on the sub forums.  Breaking things up too much. 

But I also think things get buried in a single thread for a broad topic.

I removed them for now. 

It's too messy. 

What about a Prefix system so we have

Pacific FC - Blah Blah Blah Blah     for thread titles?

are you doing it for both cpl and mls teams? i like the idea of splitting it up, i think it could spur rivalries weirdly

Just have a Pre-Season, Spring Season, Fall Season, Post-Season thread for each team? And when you start the new thread lock the old one (but post a link to the locked thread in the body of the first post of the new thread?) That way threads dont grow to become huge. Can also sticky match threads like you've been doing. 

 

I think that system would work fine.

I think we should have a sub forum for all the match threads. There are a lot of them and they are cluttering up the main CPL forum, and pushing down topics that are still relevant (although not posted to for "a while") long after the match thread has lost current relevance.

I was just thinking that today.  All matches, one place? Or CanPL Matches one place.  I think all, try that first.

I understand the logic, but if people would just post the exciting news about their teams that would push game threads down quickly. 

Issey no longer seasick.

How do they stop the horses from shitting in Cavalry pregames?

Is the large building in the corner of the Wanderers Ground haunted?

If people would be a bit more diligent about relevant posts, the game threads would not bother us so much.

Hmmm. I'd probably just do it for CPL. It is really only a problem when there are a lot of matches that come thick and fast.

I don't look at the MLS forum but perhaps it would make sense there too.

I don't think we need to do it for the NT forums, although it might be handy for reviewing those threads later.

Thing is most people view the forum in Fluid mode or use the Activity Stream, so it doesn't make much difference.

 

Questions is what are people liking about this statement.

1. That it doesn't matter so make it.

2. That it doesn't matter so don't bother making it.

^ I dunno, but if I could "hide" threads I just don't wanna see that would be perfect. I could "turn off" the first post in match-thread and not have to worry about wading through dozens of notification in the activity feed

I use fluid mode. It's not a huge issue, but I think a CPL match thread sub forum makes sense. Personally I don't have interest in those threads, but I do tend to be interested in the national team game threads (typically after the game is already done).

The national team games are more rare so it's more achievable to read up on it, and in cases where the game isn't available to watch, or only through a live stream that may be at a time when I can't watch, it's the only way to consume the game.
