I have done this change because I truly believe that it is an improvement, both for the regulars and the casual visitors of this place. I am not going to disclose who I talked to, what they responded and who reported what, but rest assured that I did consider this for quite some time and the responses were thoroughly positive. Asking several hunderd or even thousands of forumers would be pointless (and frankly impossible) but compared to the traffic this subforum gets it was representative. This thread is a further indication that this change was a good one.
The reason we're not just having 5 sticky threads and everything goes there is that there are reasons to have your own thread. As an example, do you remember Zidane's headbutt in the World Cup Finals 2006? Hilarity ensued
. That's also the reason why the Spiderman thread (which isn't a portfolio despite its name since it isn't used to promote a person but rather a topic) is still open.
By the way guys, please keep it civil. Everyone has a right to express and defend their opinion, that's the whole point of this thread. Thanks.
You are not going to disclose anything because it's your private stuff at the back right? Then, how can your minor private conversations affect this big change? Explain to us why... You never give explanation about the change and keep defending yourself whenever I throw questions on you.
Also, I don't think this thread is indicating any good change.
Tell us the reasons of this change, how many people involved in supporting the change, etc...else, I'll assume it as fake and by own will.
And, you said that Spiderman thread is allowed because it is not promoting a person's name, rather a topic? Now, I can create a new Batman thread I think. Good!
We can have Batman, Ultraman, Ironman, Superman, Cicakman, and any man'man'man' we want because they will be a comedy topic instead of promoting a person's name.
