Idea Merging Image Threads

With regards to Merging threads in the Just Images Lounge is it possible to leave them for a day or 2 before they get merged?

This isnt the first thread its been bought up in before now.

http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/just-...7-08-pics.html

If it is a problem then not to worry.

Re: Merging Image Threads

i think this is a great idea! at least all pics will be seen, if i see a thread 20 odd pages long of pics from a meet, i will only prob look at the 1st page and use the quick reply at the bottom! i wouldnt mind betting alot of other members would most likely do the same too

Re: Merging Image Threads

If people take the time to up pictures and share them with us, they should be left in their separate threads. Hardly any overhead there? It's not the same as say having 2 concurrent similar discussion threads in WOT being merged, which I can understand.

Re: Merging Image Threads

I think they should be left as separate threads too I can only guess this is being done to try to keep the images section tidy as obviously it still takes up the same bandwidth no matter how many threads they are in.
I would rather be bale to comment on peoples photos in their respective threads
So maybe after say 5 days or something merge them if need be - but to begin with I think they should be left.

Re: Merging Image Threads

Threads relating to AO Meets will be merged, but I am ok letting them stay separate for a couple of days.

Other picture threads will of course stay separate.

Agreed?

Re: Merging Image Threads

A couple of days is not enough for people to see them separate. Like has been said, there is no real overhead.

If "tidying" is so neccessary then someone (Mod/Rep/other?) should start a pre-thread for an event in the Just Images lounge and those wishing to share pics in that thread, can do so. Yes, that might mean less pictures being shared, but at least members threads/pictures don't get muddled/mixed-up in merged threads. Some people like to look at their threads in the past or posts. It confuses everyone when they are just merged.

Re: Merging Image Threads

The pre-threads for posting Meet Pics have already been actioned for the most part by now.

Although I run the risk of certain people thinking "we" are ganging up again....

Re: Merging Image Threads

Yo BF, if it was a few days (4 or 5) I think that would be cool and can't see why anyone would have a problem

Re: Merging Image Threads

Ok, that's probably doable. Will speak to the other mods about it.

Do you want your freking images to stay in their own threads or not
If it was left to the other trouble making numpties then you would just have an argument going on followed by a closed thread
