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

    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.

    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.

    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.
