DraftPlanet is not closed.

Draft discussion is now encouraged in the Lounge. This format has been followed in the past and fell by the wayside.

We've had a discussion within this thread and reached a partial compromise. I don't know exactly what it looks like but I have a general idea of what I think would be positive for ChiefsPlanet. I'm looking to regular participants in DraftPlanet and The Lounge to help fill in the blanks with their own cool ideas.

The following is not yet etched in stone. There's a lot of pertinent discussion throughout the thread.
DraftPlanet will remain open until one week after the Combine. Draft gurus will be encouraged to start and/or ask for threads to be moved to the Lounge. We want to encourage football discussion in the Lounge and we hope Draftnits will seek to share their knowledge with the GenPop. Finally, DraftPlanet will remain open year around but new threads will be moderated by Draft moderators and moved to the Lounge or kept in DraftPlanet based on a yet-to-be determined criteria which is up for discussion.

But, don't be flipping out about how the main forum doesn't want to talk football, or that no one cares about improving the overall level of football conversation... when it's really you that doesn't care if there are more football topics on the main page. Then you act like everyone in the main forum is essentially beneath you.
To be fair, if you guys really wanted to talk football, Draft planet was just a click away.

Leave it open until after the combine's finished, then close it if you feel strongly about doing so. Change this thread to an alert notifying people that the draft forum will be closed from the end of the combine until the draft.

Well first of all, I'm not in the majority on this issue. So I'll let you handle it as you need to. But I'm allowed my say on the issue. At least until AustinChief arbitrarily bans me.

Second of all, the alleged interest on the topic from a few hundred people doesn't exist. If it would, the Lounge wouldn't look like it does. What it does is invite the typical CP irreverence and asshattery into legit Draft threads, and to sink those threads the next five times a teacher molests a student.

I don't use any of those forum tools, either...but it's easy to just click on the draft logo and boom, every draft thread pops up.

I don't think it's gonna be a problem keeping the thing on the front page, anyway.

It's gonna be better and easier this way to find draft threads IMO...and like I said, I welcome the additional discussion and larger audience.

What if we leave Draft Planet alone for diehards but encourage draft discussion in the Lounge during the offseason (ie: we won't move threads). Diehards can choose their audience and still keep their private playground.

Honestly, I'll let you guys handle it. I just really disagree with it.

Again, that's your call. I'll allow you to handle it as you wish. I just reserve my right to dislike it.

Yeah, but the general appeal of this forum is that it was a free for all centered around one forum, with an emphasis on the Chiefs. That's why a lot of people like coming here. Now if the general consensus is let's not do that anymore, then maybe not. But the people complaining about this are basically complaining about the nature of this forum. That's why I made the comment to Direckshunned about posting somewhere else. It's basically like going into Dunkin Donuts and complaining they don't have ice cream.

If you look at the majority of other NFL team fan forums, they are mainly divided into several different topics:

[Insert Team Name] Talk - Obvious, threads about anything that pertains to the existing team/players

Around the League - anything related to the rest of the NFL/ players not on the team, etc

College Football/Draft

The Lounge - where all of your poop threads, child molestation by a teacher threads, NSFW threads, etc, can be found. Crap that has nothing to do with football.

It's weird that actual talk about the Chiefs seems to be side chatter here while the main forum is all of the random stuff.

That's just so unorganized and would save people a lot of trouble if topics were restricted to certain forums.

Ideally draftplanet threads would post in both the draftplanet and lounge forums. If somone posts a comment in the draftplanet version, it would automatically go to both versions of the thread. If someone posted in the lounge version, it would only go to the lounge version of the thread. Direckshun could have mod ability for the draftplanet version and disembowel anyone who posts something in the draftplanet version that isn't worthy.

Not sure if VB could accommodate that without massive programming.
