The Thread for Reopening Threads

I made the group tag for this @Reopeners please join it if you voted for it to be made :pleading_face:

2 Likes

Okay I’m going to start just to demonstrate how it’s done!

Discuss

I picked this because I like people having a specific place to rant about exes :joy:

Music

I picked this one because I really enjoy acoustic music, especially lately, I’ve been wanting to pick up acoustic guitar, so I want to hear more examples from the community!

Gaming

I picked this because my last post on the thread was asking if anyone can post a poll, I’m more than willing to post polls if this gets reopened and if people are interested.

Anime

I picked this one because there are so many more anime openings to add and too look at plus appericiate.

Film & TV

I really love discussing horror movies, though this thread needs toned down to PG13 levels, I’m more than willing to partake!

Books

I picked this because fantasy became my preferred genre to write over horror, especially since I can give fantasy some horror elements, I want to discuss how malleable the fantasy genre is!

School

I have some things to add to this topic :eyes: it’s actually kind of contraversial.

Health and Beauty

I quite like this thread and I do have some things to add!


This is all I’m nominating for now

  • You do not need to nominate a thread from every section, you can if you want to

  • You do not need to explain your choice, you can if you want to

I think this is the writing discussion section or something! Can’t remember

But I think this thread could be really interesting and especially helpful for writers and even discussing their ideas and stuff.

@Discussions I’m tagging you to let you know a few things because you guys are interested in discussions and this is a thread to reopen those.

  • We have a group tag called @Reopeners which was voted for by 9 to be made but only 4 have joined :sunglasses:

  • You still have until the 21st to nominate threads

But also, we care about natural threads on here, for so long the staff have dominated thread making and we probably haven’t made it clear enough that we really value user threads on here! So while you can’t nominate threads closed by OP request, you can remake them yourself if you want to discuss the topic that was closed. We have no rule against remaking threads.

Books

I feel like almost every time I read a new book I have a new favorite character so it would be nice to have a place to talk about that :thinking:

Film and tv

Seems like a very interesting topic

What is that?

It will say if a thread has been closed due to “OP request” at the bottom of a thread where the staff member who closed it states the reason. But it basically means the person who made the thread requested for it to be closed!

Ah, okay. Thank you!

Sounds interesting but is there anything stopping us from just creating a new thread about a topic when the old one gets closed? This just sounds like a lot of effort for something that can easily be solved by creating a new thread if someone wants to discuss a topic that has been discussed before and died down. And if the goal of this is to avoid duplicate threads, there’s nothing stopping the staff from merging the new thread with the old one if it gains a lot of attention, right? :thinking:
but I haven’t been around for a while so feel free to just ignore my opinion since there might be something I’m missing here

Nothing at all!

It’s not that much effort, if people want to respond to a point on the closed thread or if they’d just prefer a thread got reopened than remade then like, that’s fine, it makes no difference to me.

I don’t believe I ever said the goal was to stop duplicating threads, it’s for if people don’t like that a thread was closed and they think it can be reopened, if a new thread is made after the original was closed it’s not a duplicate, it would only be a duplicate if two threads of the same nature were open at the same time.

Just people being worried that people may be bothered about threads being closed, nothing to worry about, I hope I answered your concerns.

Hey @Reopeners

Looks like none of them got up to what would be 75% of our active users! Better luck next time, 75% is in the 20-30 range by the way. I also just want to say that threads can be remade so if if look at any of these and wish you could talk about them, you can remake them.

This vote is literally just for if enough people would prefer the original.

Feel free to send more nominations until 2022-05-18T23:00:00Z

Let me throw in a couple nominations here.

I can only nominate 1 from the film/tv category at a time, but… there’s this one for tv shows like the one for movies above that I didn’t want to see forgotten

Bump!
I vote this thread because I think it’s very important.

Dunno if I made it obvious when I stepped down but I’m not running this anymore. Either someone else can or people can just do the common sense thing and make new threads or comment on threads of a similar nature to the threads that they want reopening.

Considering how many people wanted to “”"“save”""" the forum it’s really funny to me that I’ve really not being seeing much of a spike in activity…

Anyway, I’m putting this on mute. If anyone has a problem with anything I said, don’t PM me. I’m not obligated to respond.

Can we still suggest threads we want reopened here?

Can we reopen the Describe your favorite song without naming it thread? I have a different favorite song that the one I had last year, and want to add it.
