    I move we eliminate all cyclone fanatic forums and threads and replace with the Cyclone Fanatic "Megathread Megathread". Do I have a second?

I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Or should it be "***** Official Megathread megathread*****"?

    Gee whiz, you want to pay for those extra asterisks? Official threads only have three on each side of the title.


    All truisms are false. All of them.

    I didn't know there was an official number of asterisks in the official threads.

    If there is but one thread there is no need to designate as official.

    Re: Posts and threads

    Men's basketball threads should all be about uniforms. Or what they wear off the court.

    Yeah, I know, nobody says "threads" for clothes anymore. Solid.

    I mean...Word.

    Can we just have a thread about posts?

    Good point. But if there is only one thread, how can we know it is the only thread unless we designate it as the official thread? Some random Noob might come along and create a pretend official megathread with three asterisks on each side of the title, and fool us all. And then where would we be?

    Let's stick with what we've already got. It's good enough as it is.

    I blame the mods for letting this whole posting thing get out of hand. It's obvious, when you think about it.
    Quite a request coming from a man with almost 54,000 posts! If you can guarantee threads will stay on topic I might agree with you. As it is, the megathreads on this site have become almost worthless.

    Re: Posts and threads

    The point is one thread without posts. That keeps things simple, organized and uncluttered.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    That is simplicity only if you work in the Department of Repetitive Redundancy Department.

    Simplicity would require the title - or better still - the entire thread to simply be 42.
