Subject confusion in the Snug

#291966

Postby GoSeigen » March 18th, 2020, 12:24 pm

Some recent posts have been moved from the "Pic of the Day" thread and "Media to Blame" to the "Coronavirus ..." thread. I support the move, but unfortunately the subject hasn't been amended on the moved posts which is very confusing when reading the thread.

They have GS - and the reason I've just moved these particular ones is to keep the original threads that they've moved from 'on-topic' for their subject-matter, and also to try to keep all polite coronavirus-related discussions under the distinct thread created for that topic in Beerpigs Snug (in relation to these particular post-moves..) -

Given that the various Coronavirus-related topics are often clearly headed 'Please don't start another one here', it should be clear by now that collectively, we're trying to corral the virus discussions into tight areas, both to help keep other threads clear of such off-topic discussions, and also (perhaps more importantly...), to help give everyone who may be wanting virus-related information some clarity on where they can go to keep up with it, rather than have to try to remember just where a particular random bit of related-conversation might have occurred...

With regards to the original post headings staying the same, that's for two reasons also, one of which is that I've simply not got the time to go to that level of tidying up, and also I thought it was worth keeping the original post headers just in case the posters went looking for their posts - and if the header were to have changed, that might have been more confusing. This can also help to maintain identification of the OP's where complete threads need merging into the intended ones...

I should add that if you go back and look through the Snug thread linked above, the maintenance of the original thread-headers has been the convention on earlier post-moves too, and that's why I thought maintaining that stance was the best thing to do myself....

Hopefully the convention regarding trying to corral all the coronavirus discussions into their distinct threads (Beerpig's Snug / Polite Discussions etc..) will start to land with people soon, as this is currently an ongoing issue and takes some effort to tidy up, so I'd please like to ask everyone to play their part in this, and stick to the main coronavirus threads linked below -
