    No response threads

    What is the point of the threads started by "Cyclone Fanatic" being set up so that no one can respond? It seems many of these press releases generate some conversation and it would make sense for the press release link to stay on the front page along with the conversation. Instead, they end up in different threads.

    I agree, and I still miss Pete.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    That is exactly what got me going on this thread.

    Re: No response threads

    I agree. A thread is started regarding Iowa State news, and then we have to start another thread to discuss. It really doesn't make sense.

    Re: No response threads

    Originally they were able to be replied to . Complaints happened.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Doesn't the inabilitiy to respond mean that the news release thread will stay on the first page of the board for about 2 minutes? Then why bother?

    The one below was posted at 3pm and is already relegated to the third page of "recent threads" (never to be read again).

    That should be the Cyclone Fanatic slogan.
