Mega Threads: Love 'em or Hate 'em?

I came to the realization a few minutes ago that I have almost no clue what's going on in training camp this year. I know we have a thread on it, but when you're not on here frequently (my visits have been a bit less frequent lately), it's basically impossible to catch up with what's going on when there are 500 posts every day or two to sift through.

That said, they definitely serve a function and help to keep content organized and prevent a ton of threads all one one topic. With as much as happens around here, the inability to catch up that I described above can quickly end up being the same issue with catching up on threads.

Anyway, I don't know that there's a great solution to the issue of organization vs. easy of following. But I am curious: do you love mega threads or hate them?

I've always thought repository threads were dumb, but it's a habit that people love. So I usually just put up with them.

IF you are going to start a mega thread be it, training camp or a ****ing royals game, have the up to date info in the op. The score, the lineup, who caught what etc...If you can't do that don't start the damn thread.

There should be a Training Camp subforum in my opinion so threads of interest can be clicked on and others not. Season starts bye subforum.

I guess that's my purpose for creating this thread. So far, the votes are 8-0 against mega threads. If that trend holds, that would seem to indicate that the issue is just that people start the threads in the first place rather than a bunch of people actually LIKING one big thread rather than a bunch of different threads for various discussions.

Went with Gaz. I like them if I read them. Don't like them if I don't. And unfortunately I haven't gotten into the Training Camp thread.

That being said, don't take the KU/MU/Royals/obscure sports repository. That'd suck if those went away.

Yeah, that's an important distinction. For niche topics that only get a handful of posts in a normal week, repository threads make perfect sense so that people can find the info on a specific topic. It's when the threads are about a giant topic that receives hundreds of daily posts that it becomes impossible to follow.

And then half the time the thread gets derailed with some absolute nonsense.

That can't be included in the decision. Even non-football threads turn into Cassel Sucks threads.

That is going to happen no matter what thread. There is no way that 50 "grown" men can all talk about the same thing for months without it going stray somewhere in there. **** the mega threads. I would rather one story have it's on thread, get talked about then forgotten about, then have that same story be buried in a mega thread and never heard from again.

I'm kind of dumbfounded by the results so far and am very curious to see if they hold over the next 24 hours or so. Could it be that the only reason we're doing mega threads lately is just because we're all lemmings?

If the mega threads just didn't include clay's trolling (ruined that thread for me) or the stupid pissing matches, they would be just fine.

Keep the news in the news threads.
