Re: the impending end of the CSR


#1

The CSR thread is about to hit 10k posts, meaning it’ll reach the thread limit and will be automatically locked.

It’s been running non-stop for 2 years and 1 month now. It’s been suggested to me a number of times that it would be easier if each round was its own thread. I asked everybody else on the thread and there were no objections, hence I’d like to ask the forum keepers: Would it therefore be possible to create a new section/subsection for it so we can sticky the general rules? That’d also make housekeeping much simpler too!


#2

If it is that popular, why don’t you guys create a new thread for each round and lock the old one, having one thread as a central hub for some meta talk and links to all rounds? Given how popular it is, that would result in Round-Threads that still are larger than an average, somewhat interesting challenge. Also, that keeps things less complex structurally.

Are there any good reasons for not solving it that way?


#3

In that case if I wrote a new post for CSR rules and rule discussion, could that be stickied so we can easily refer to that? aside from the fact nobody ever reads sticky posts


#4

You mean as the starting post for the “meta” thread I mentioned? Anyway the answer is “sure!”. Go ahead and do that, I’d like you to have 1 general thread and one thread for each round. But I think the rules would be the first post in every round post, or is there something preventing you from doing this?


#5

Nothing, just people forgetting due to natural decay. Also the fact I’ll have to find a way for the rules to be really compressed down to something that isn’t 3 A4 pages :joy:


#6

Then put that as the start of the meta thread :slight_smile: can be edited for every new round and you can sticky it. If you lock the rounds threads once the next round starts this should be pretty clutter-free overall.
