[POLL] 100 Page Archives: Trial Two

I was right to not hold my breath and wait for a more civil thread to pop up about it, so I'll make this thread. What does everyone think of it? I'll leave a poll, but you can of course repeat your answer with an explanation below, or offer a position I forgot to include.

Oh, and FYI discussion oriented excludes topics like the screenshots thread. That's more of a work sharing thread that doesn't get much more discussion than critiques and compliments.

I believe the second option should also include if the author requests the thread be locked and archived at 100 pages regardless.
Living explosives, prone to destroying themselves along with their enemies with their powerful "Self-Destruct." Bombs take the rage built up by being attacked and transform it into energy. This, in turn, makes them grow, sometimes to incredible sizes.

Well to be honest, we have a system, it works and keeps things uniform, so in this case I'd say we should just leave it as is. It's never been an issue before the latest "Total Drama SMBX" episode, and I highly doubt it'll be much of an issue once this all settles down, unless people feel the need to aggravate the point because they think they can.

I think the second option is the best way to meet in the middle and make everyone satisfied.

Exceptions can be made if the author requests.

i think its stupid that its 100 pages, it would be more sensible at like 1000 pages right?

100 is just too low, so i picked the third one

That was my intention. The complaints were that threads would lose traction and popularity because all of their posts would be gone, but the system works great for the screenshots thread. It's supposed to meet in the middle just as you said, and that's why I voted for it.

but its still a pain to revive a thread every time it makes 100 pages, like. At least extend it to 1000 like i said or something? That's meeting in the middle as they still get archived but the thread lasts for years rather than months.

So many pages of posts can be annoying to go through when you're looking for a specific post.

I honestly never like the 100 page thing... what i dont like is that once its achieved and locked its there and forgotten later unless someone brings up that one time scenario.." i.e "Hey remember the Whos ur Waifu thread" "oh yeah i remember that... darn cant post to it no more"


I think that once it reaches 100, it should keep going and btw even though theres 100 plus pages u can just click to the page u want or view unread posts there if u have a sub to that topic,


Another idea is to maybe archive and lock the "troll" threads or any thread that was locked to make the threads more "alive" and not locked everywhere

A bit of my argument against the 100 page rule from before, although slightly outdated:
50 page topic limits make sifting through topics easier!! Obviously we should do that!
Heck, I bet 25 page topic limits would make sifting even less of a hassle.

So obviously I wasn't being serious? But there is no way to argue that the arbitrary number of 100 pages is better than another arbitrary number of 101 pages as far as difficulty to sort through. I'm sure 101 pages is super difficult for someone to search through for a post. I don't even know how often this happens to begin with.
Obviously you people are the only ones on the entire internet who have this issue, though, because I have never seen anywhere else archiving of threads upon reaching a post count as it's counterproductive and annoying.

Why do we need to make new screenshot threads? I don't know. We can't post all of the screenshots together for some reason. This isn't even a topic people sift through to begin with. If anything, you look at the new posts in the thread, maybe comment on them. Then you go on with your day. Like, it isn't an issue.

But no, we need to cut off topics potentially in the middle of a discussion for no reason other than having topics of 100 pages for some reason. What happens to the people who post on the 99th and maybe 100th pages of that topic? Oh well, screw them for being unlucky or not strategically waiting for the next topic to be made.
Why even 100 pages? What's so good about 100 aside from a joke? What would you guys do if 100 topics got to 99 pages? Archive them? You have no right to archive them because they hit 100 pages because they haven't hit 100 pages. And what's the big deal about hitting 100 from 99? Suddenly the world is going to end because a topic is now 1 page longer than it was before?

Yeah, I basically agree with FallingSnow. Never understood this rule really; it doesn't make things easier to navigate in practice.

many valid arguments and counter-arguments can be made for each option, I took the 3rd option but I don't actually mind as much since not many topic reach 100 pages anyway. navigability shouldn't be a problem, since the search bar exists for a reason (and it doesn't work for any reason at times as well) but at the same time, less pages for the navigability also is bad since topics are locked too early, id suggest either keeping it the same, removing the 100 page limit altogether if possible or only applying it to specific situations. although that's just me that thinks so
I'm not good at making signatures.

I don't think the 100 pages thing is a big deal, just make another thread .__.

If you really are looking for a specific post that isn't on the latest two-three pages on a thread, there is a really simple and easy to use Search function on this forum, there is also the go-to page function, and there is also the function to view the posts of other users. It's actually not that hard or annoying to search through posts, and I don't really know anyone who goes back on old discussion and brings it up again.

Why would someone have to go back through a thread to look for a specific post in the first place? Usually people just participate in conversation that has been happening for the last two-three pages. And, if by your logic that sifting through a thread with many pages is annoying when looking for a specific post, then sifting through a 10 page thread is annoying. If someone was really searching for a specific post, I think they'd use easier methods of finding it rather than sifting through many pages.

Use logic.
