    Wow. There are absolutely waaaaaaaaay too many threads being posted in current events. Half of them don't even get replies and some can be combined with others or posted in another forum. I'm usually not one to complain about stuff, and I'm totally against censorship, but these posting of minor news events seems a bit excessive. These new threads are pushing the active threads down and it's hard to keep up. I'm not trying to call anyone out but can we just start limiting the current events threads to relevant or interesting discussions so the board isn't flooded?

    Am I the only one that sees this as annoying?

    That's what's cool, we can either reply or not, but get a place to share what we think is interesting.

    I rarely respond in certain arenas, but once in awhile something catches my interest, post where your interests lie. Different strokes for different folks.

    No I totally understand. But posting new topic after topic after topic in current events kind of makes it hard for me to get started on something that I find interesting. I lose interest and won't even post in a thread when I know my comments are going to get buried on page 2 by the next day. There's no point in writing something that no one is going to get a chance to read. I doubt that I'm the only one that thinks that. Just an observation but some threads can be put in more appropriate forums and it would solve some of the flooding.

    Tag those you think so, we'll review. It's easy enough to move or merge. Thanks.

    I'm not an admin or mod so I decline on specifically deciding what should be moved and to where. But I count 13 threads on the first page with less than 4 replies that could be moved to more appropriate forums and/or merged with other threads.

    No you are not, but all you need to do is click the red exclamation point and explain why. 'Lack of replies' does not qualify. Otherwise, thanks for the fish.

    For the last time, I've explained how it works. Each has to be done manually and their is a system in place with which to do so. As you stated, here you are not mod or admin. So, please try following the directions.

    You said thanks for the fish. I just listed those threads to show you it wasn't a figment of my imagination. And no I'm not going to go through and individually mark each thread I think needs to be moved. That's not my responsibility. If it's such a hassle then I'll just ignore all the threads in current events.
