O, D, ST, Coaching.  BTW, I like them, just hard for me to post longer replies from 35000 feet.

Like 'em generally, but didn't realise just how many options there were as regards opinions. Maybe just keep it to O/D/STs/Coaching, and perhaps officiating.

Too many for me. I also think often issues are interlinked so hard to say something goes just in one topic.

I like the idea, maybe just a few less options: O, D, Coaching, SP Teams (maybe).

 

I do appreciate the willingness to experiment.

I think fewer, more general topics would be better.  Offense, defense, special teams, and coaching would be good general topics.

Mixed reactions.  I think they're restrictive during the game.  I think game day discussions probably need to be free for all mess.  

 

Bur I like rhem AFTER the game.  It makes sense for a day or two after the game to have the ads for o, d, qb, coach officiating.  There also should be a thread for general reactions to the game.  

 

That doesn't mean that mods have to shut down other threads that people start.  Some limitations are necessary, but more threads is better than less.  More threads generate more discussion.

I agree.  Having these general topic threads was useful, but they shouldn't be the exclusive threads on any topic.

It seems predetermined thread topics (I.e. officiating) floods the board as much as any other thread might. It essentially went unused, yet sat pinned. As a mobile user, it makes it one more thing to scroll through. 

 

It's a good idea in theory. However, I've never minded multiple threads on a single topic, especially if their new discussions or are adding something original. 

 

With the group chats, all dialogue and conversation becsmes mashed and buried into a single thread, making it difficult to get into the convo if you're jumping in late.

Bold part is untrue. I stayed with them and only unpinned the day after as each topic went 1 hour without comment. But I get your jist.

👍

Valiant effort Chandler 

 

From what I saw it didn’t work as expected and we still had in game threads.

Confused the heck out of me...   but then figured it out.  As a few others suggested,

seemed a little too many. Maybe a few less more general would be better?

If it was up to me, I'd lock the board an hour ahead of the game and then reopen it an hour or 2 after the game. 

Set up a discord for people who want to talk in real time--but the board should be for discussions, not reactions. It's a message board, not a comment board. Big difference.

I don't mind hot takes in paragraph form on a Tuesday evening--they're what makes the internet worth browsing--but I hate play by play reactions calling for sweeping organizational changes--that's a symptom of everyone thinking their opinion matters in an instant gratification society. 

And shutting it down would lead to better threads, because an opinion is like a (wait for it, not what you're expecting) seed--it starts, it grows, it flowers into something different than it originally starts as. Last game I thought Josh Allen was playing poorly in the first quarter. Then I realized the gameplan was run heavy. Then I realized the game plan was to see how Gore and Shady ran out of similiar sets and formations, and grade them against each other. So my personal hot take thread would have gone from "why is josh allen so terrible" to "are we trying to trade shady or gore?" And that would have happened over the course of 3-4 hours. If I made my original thread idea, I'd be just like every other poster in internet history: forced to defend a hot take against all comers with ad hominem attacks until mods rush in to shut it down.

That is typically the Shout Box.  

 

There is always ongoing game conversations.

I liked the idea. Here are a few constructive suggestions:

1) utilize less categories

   - perhaps O,D, special teams,  coaching/refs

   - maybe add a thumbs up/down category

2) maybe open them before the game starts

  - allows for what we are looking for in terms of the catagories and to compare/contrast atvthe end

3) keep them pinned for a few days after the game

  - sometimes after watching all-22 other thoughts pop up

 

Thank you for trying novel ways to enhance our forum (couch coach) tendencies!

I liked it. 

When home watching I do check in to the wall now and then. Most times right after the game. 

When at the Game or out watching don’t check in on the wall till next day.   

 

Maybe a few less 

 

Overall a good idea.

I still kind of like the old first half second half threads. Shoutbox isn’t great from smart phone 

They won’t go away.

Love the idea - just a few to many to get any real discussion on.  Maybe a few less with offense, Defense, and overall - could include officials, calls, mvp stuff

 

 

Really appreciate the effort - lots of work, but I think it will be helpful.
