Title: Monthly Comments Threads
Post by: divs on March 22, 2019, 05:42:40 PM
Given the less frequent posting on the individual episode threads lately, we're going try consolidating each month's episodes into a single thread for a while. This makes discussion of a specific story a bit awkward, but it should also make it easier to see other people's feedback and perhaps to summarize your own.

If it seems like this method doesn't work well, we'll go back to the old format!

I cannot imagine a more disruptive way to re-organize conversation about individual stories than this.  :(

I asked if EA could use some volunteers to post episode threads (over in the next forum over) a couple months ago and the thread was straight up deleted and I figured that was my answer but I certainly never expected a development like this. 

I hope tremendously that my skepticism and feelings of hopelessness re: story discussion turns out to be without merit.

I also don't think it makes sense for a discussion.

Appreciate your feedback! The hope is to boost visibility of feedback, not reduce the workload (which is comparable either way). We would also love to see more discussion.

Thanks for the offer, Thunderscreech, and sorry your post got deleted.

Please go back to the old format. While I understand that having very few comments on a story is disheartening, trying to discuss several stories on a single thread is even less satisfying. If people weren't commenting before, I feel this will reduce discussion even more.

I agree with the above. It will also make it much harder in the future when someone is listening to an old story to come back and find/understand the thread.
