    I think they're should be a thread on each character/topic individualary, that way they're won't be so many damn repetative/pointless threads on the same character/topic.

    So, who's with me?

    (Dont say this thread is pointless, and sorry if it is)

    I think people should be allowed to vote for what they think is the best way to deal with this problem.

    As great as specific pre-made threads are, and I do support the idea in theory, it won't work because this site gets new traffic each day, and people will continue to come in, join, and post threads irregardless of what we or higher-ups want. Same thing happened with Star Wars boards around prequel time. Just have to ride the wave out until August when things will cool off around here.

    Also I voted for thread fail because it's 3 am here, and I'm stuck awake at home alone with a screaming newborn. That seems like logical thread-failing criteria for me.

    This thread is more pointless than the ones you are complaining about.

    Ultimate fail... no matter how hard we try to stop threads that keep on repeating or ones viewed pointless, somebody's always going to be doing such threads.

    There is always going to be some random/ignorant/lazy person that doesn't want to look around for the corresponding thread.

    This should be posted elsewhere minus the idea of the poll. And what pointless threads are you talking about because the threads that could be considered pointless are closed.
    IE.
    a thread about guesses for what may happen like "I think the Fallen is Jetfire"

    How would this be carried out tho? i mean gud idea, but threads only have stuff about specific characters might just be way to long, specific things need to be addressed but not repeated

    We believe the current system is fine. If you feel a thread is a duplicate of another thread, please report the post and the moderators can merge them. It's hard to keep up on the movie forum sometimes due to the sheer number of people and posts that happen in a day.
