    Input wanted

    We have had many people asking for different options on dealing with threads.

    This is your time to give some input.

    Would you rather have 30 threads on individuals input on who should be the next coach?

    Or one thread that everyone can do the same?

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

    Re: Input wanted

    Some things, like the Barkley topic, probably should have their own thread, it probably would have kept a dozen different Barkley threads from popping up. I think it's somewhere in the middle with a lean towards less threads...

    Re: Input wanted

    It's hard to say overall. 1 thread is easy, but then people keep posting the same thing over and over. Multiple threads can be excessive. Tough call. Depends on who says what and how.

    I think 1 thread for everyone (meaning Cyclonefanatics) input on who the coach should be are fine. I think hearing about Barkley, Rome, et al, might deserve seperate threads, but that's just me.


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...

    Case by case-
    Some threads deserve to be merged. Others with new info shouldn't get buried.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Agree! The Barkley link is certainly deserving of its own thread!

    Re: Input wanted

    Guys...Barkley's ego is already big enough - no need to inflate it even more! ;)

    Case by case is correct though and generally, that seems to be what's been happening the last day or so.

    Re: Input wanted

    And keep in mind that the "Official" threads would be daily threads until this all dies down. That would allow them to not get too big.

    Re: Input wanted

    Multiple threads keep the post count down per thread - no facts on that, just impression. I do not read a thread if there are 30 pages to go through just to get up to date

    I agree. And Charles will be thrilled later tonight when he logs onto CF and sees that he has his own thread.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Input wanted

    I would rather not have 20 threads talking about the same topic with a new one popping up every 2 minutes, but, at least for me anyway, I can go read a thread all the way until the end, refresh the front page and if a thread has been merged, I hit the button with the green arrow that takes you to the newest post and it goes to post number 1. It then makes it impossible to keep up when a thread gets to 100+ posts to find where you left off when you get taken to post number 1 when another thread is merged with it. At least that is how it works for me.

    Hope I made sense with this.

    Re: Input wanted

    One main thread for individual input about who people think should be the next coach. If someone has new info- not an new opinion but new info- I think they should be able to start a new thread instead of lumping it together where it can get lost.

    Re: Input wanted

    I voted for one, but I think we should have a few and divide by general topic, kind of like what you guys did this morning.

    If I were king of the world, I'd do one thread per possible coach so we can read up on them all more easily.

    Re: Input wanted

    I like the idea of balance. One main thread, unless something special comes up (Barkley, whatever).

    Unless that something is the Auburn fan meeting Jacobs at the airport. That thread got started soo many times, it was getting unbelievable.


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

    Re: Input wanted

    The other idea I would suggest is to have one official thread a day. When a thread goes for more then a day, it gets too long.
