So, I decided to do a test.
I wanted to see how fast a thread that talked about Call of Duty would blow up versus a thread with actual innovating idea’s. If you don’t know which threads I am talking about, they are still on the front page.
Well, my friends, I have bad news…
(Innovative Halo Ideas)
Becoming your Spartan
So get this, a topic with innovative and imaginative idea’s got 35 replies in all within them from members and myself, and triple the views. <mark>THIS IS OVER THE PERIOD OF AN ENTIRE WEEK.</mark>
And now, a topic that speaks about CoD or complains about something in any way, shape, or form, such as the first thread above, got 35 replies from the members and myself <mark>in the course of half an hour</mark>, and over 200+ views and counting.
So, I get a lot of replies saying ‘I don’t care’ and ‘Does this matter?’ in the CoD topic.
I don’t know members, you tell me.
Statistically speaking it appears you care much more about threads that complain or talk about CoD rather than a thread with actual innovative idea’s and topics for discussion and debate.
I wanted to start this thread as a bit of an eye opener of how thread’s about the 'Controller Scheme being blown up and re-made over and over are completely overdone and just clutter the forum with repeat information, causing much more innovative, fun, and interesting thread’s to drop into the land of nevermore.
Betcha didn’t know there was this sweet thread with multiplayer armor in different colors did you? (Such as Recruit and Fotus)
Betcha didn’t know there were fun hopes and multiplayer idea’s posted here and there did you?
Everybody focuses too much on threads and forums in which there are complaints or whines of change or nostalgia, wanting their own piece in the action of the thread to drive home their point and argument rather than give off ideas or praise other’s for their idea’s and thrown in idea’s of their own, allowing such fun topics to have been made for almost nothing.
So I say this to hopefully help our community and forum a little…
If you see a topic about a point you like, dislike, agree or disagree with, don’t go driving your point out there by making a whole new thread or another thread of the same thing, just respond to that thread, let that grow like the Sangheilli thread did when the lovers of Elite’s were petitioning and complaining about no Elites being in Halo 4’s Multiplayer. (AND THAT GOT 100+ PAGES, HOT DAMN!)
This way, everyone can get a chance to argue their point while also enjoying the fun and innovative topics rather than missing them and never seeing them at all.
What do you guys think? Discuss, Comment, Debate.
<mark>Also, no flamer’s please, this is a friendly topic meant to be debated and discussed, not meant for trolling and insults.</mark>
