First post updated with links to locked threads.

I wonder if anyone has ever read back through both trivial threads?   A veritable goldmine of bollocks. This is the problem, I can see that stuff gets lost in there, but often there might just not be enough meat in a topic to justify a new thread.

Take a couple of recent examples.... how to eat a custard slice with an equitable distribution, to avoid seepage... and the merits of Blobbyland at Cricket St Thomas.  It's important that this stuff still sees the light of day, but if you start a thread on custard slices and it only receives half a dozen replies, it could be disheartening

I'd like to think the TEF could support a custard slice thread and the Blobbyland posts were linked to an entire forum dedicated to ghost theme parks and the like.

The Trivial threads are the most used/view topics. locking them will probably demise the forum. Doubt many will start a new thread about their trivial good time/moan they have.
I all for keeping everything unlocked.

To add my tuppence worth, I prefer the generic threads too. Some I know I'm not interested in, while others are useful sub-groups for like-minded nerds. If I've been offline for a few days, I don't have to trawl past the first page of new threads, and I agree that many people won't think their post is important enough to merit a thread of its own.

Save the generic ten! (Or however many it is.)

Time for a poll?
