I see many other team boards using these. Wanted to throw out a quick poll to see what you all think about going this route for this season.

I think most people are comfortable using the GDTs for this kind of thing, I among them. But certainly whatever people want to do is cool with me. My mod stats will go up if we lock the gdts after the games.

Whatever. But I prefer to search one thread when searching for my Sarge hate.

If we lock this thread now, the mods can keep responding and none of the regular posters will be able to

Is that a much sought after metric? I've always been a K/D ratio guy .

I definitely just wanted to throw it out there to the caps posters here. I'm fine sticking with the GDT if the majority prefer. I guess thinking about the GDTs as more of a live flow of the game and with PGTs direct to non-live analysis/debate.

Nah, it's easier to call out the early-game panicking pessimists when we eventually win if all posts are contained in the same thread. It also makes it easier to tell them you absolutely agreed with them when we flame out in the playoffs.

Its nice for people that go to games, I presume.

If this movement is a push from outside this board, no! Resist!


If it's a board move, then fine.

Personally, I hate sifting through one huge megathread. I don't understand the resistance to making more threads (provided the topics aren't redundant).

If people don't want to open multiple threads they don't have to. Whom does it hurt? It would just save time for those interested in discussing one point rather than pages and pages of "you're a hater" and "you're drinking kool-aid!".

Originally I was all for PGTs. But this fine argument has swayed me. If it's the HFboards popo cracking down and wanting us to use PGTs, tell 'em to shove them right back where they came from. FIGHT THE POWER

I'm a minimize the clutter type guy and I think all the extra threads aren't needed.

Meh. Questions from before the game answered after the game. Same thread is useful.

I've changed my theory. I think this is HSHS's doing. Worst mod ever.

Edit: he's in my head!

I prefer staying with the GDT. Easy to go back to earlier posts.

Having said that, GDT for Skins games is a must!

I'd prefer a separate post-game thread, personally. Not a huge issue either way, I don't think.

If we all lived our lives trying to minimize annoyances to strungout, we'd all be sitting at home, alone, in a corner, with the lights out.

Naw he loves changing diapers. So just put on your adult depends, eat some diuretic and invite him over.
