    Let's put out some statistics to clarify a few things...

    Before Claymore got it's own subforum it had a misc thread the http://stoptazmo.com/misc-series/203...iscussion.html
    between february and august '07 (six months) it gained over 570 replies and nearly 23 000 views. Not bad for a series that comes out monthly. The thread was closed in august '07 and got it's own subforum and has now the same reply quality as Berserk... and has four mods.

    The HunterxHunter thread in Misc was open since June '07 until now... and gathered over 800 posts and around 40 5000 views. When the thread opened HxH wasn't even back yet and already gathered around 15 000 views. Besides that HxH is a weekly series and one of the three most popular shounen series around the globe.

    In comparison of other subforums (Like SK, DN, POT, 666Satan, TT, Suzuka, FMA, D.Gray Man, Conan and TRC) the HxH thread is way more active. So those are just facts that speak for a HxH subforum.

    My two cents about ignorance...

    So because of one thread you want a whole subforum? I`m agreeing that some series got a subforum undeservingly and also that some should go. Only thing that speaks for hxh is that it`s NOW a weekly manga. It was on hiatus for quite a while and even tho the artist promised no such delays anymore you can`t really be sure. On a similar note the first 20 or so pages of the hxh discussion thread is mostly people asking when it will be restarted.

    Also don`t compare 1 thread to a section of mangas which are already completed (DN, PoT, 666satan, Suzuka, SK is sorta completed).

    FMA has releases of 1 chapter per 3 weeks or month.
    Tenjou Tenge has really slow releases (from scanlators not sure how it`s from the author).

    Only ones close to comparing are DGM, Conan and TRC.

    So far hxh has been doing quite well with 1 thread if you want my opinion.

    I agree with Tsubasa (that subforum's pretty dead), but in terms of release schedule, DGM doesn't exactly have a good record. It's had some long breaks too and has fewer pages than most series. It *was* way more active even just a few months ago; I'm not sure what happened to the regular posters. Still, it has more posts than most subforums.

    ...but if I hadn't fallen in love with the series and become responsible for every other post there, it probably would have died despite having a fairly active thread.

    Sure, the thread is more active than subforums... now. Has it always been that way? Is the thread matching the activity of those subforums during their peak (well, except Tsubasa - that's dead), or are you only comparing now when ST is much less active than it used to be and some of those subforums are less active for other reasons? (For the record, Claymore hasn't had a chapter in two months. It's surprisingly active nevertheless.)

    How do you mean? Like news and such? If that's the case, Jyuu puts that kinda stuff up all the time (well he used to... hasn't in a while).


    Also, Morton... your making a great case further and further for *not* considering your proposal at all.

    Just in case his suggestion was taken into serious consideration.

    Yeah, like new tech coming out, discussions on gadgets and appliances, recommendation threads, the future of tech, new and useful software... stuff that doesn't involve help. Most of us read tech reviews, sites, and blogs... why not talk about it?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    What would be cool is a Gundam section.

    Not that I don't like the idea, I really do, but honestly, I don't think it'd be feasible at this point. The last thread in TS that Jyuu made about tech news got 1 reply... one prior got 5 replies. I'm just not sure that a lot of people would be generally interested in a serious discussion on emerging technology.

    Feel free to experiment though. Maybe your right and it it because we are a 'help' section that no one participates in such discussions. Try dropping a few threads in chit chat and see how many quality posts you get ('ooo I want' does not count). Kinda very them though... a new piece of hardware, a study on data algorithms, Sun making an open codec for video (actually up on /. today)... see how in depth you can get and how many people will actually bother to read and understand the articles. I'm guessing you won't get very many, but hey... like I said feel free to try it.

    +1 for tech help being made general tech.
