In reference to this thread:

http://the-w.com/thread.php/id=25858 ("Arrested Development Renewed?")

which was posted after the fact of this thread:

http://the-w.com/thread.php/id=25819 ("ĄSOY LOCO POR LOS CORNBALLS!")


I understand where Monte would've been confused. Is there any way to encourage Ws that start threads to assign thread titles that are a little more specific as to their content?

(It was pointed out to me that both threads DID have the Arrested Development icon attached to them, which I feel like an idiot for not noticing, but still...thoughts?)

Even with the Arrested Development icon, it could have been someone's late review of an episode, or something of the like.

I like the DVDVR board's subtitle option. It makes the specific threads seem a bit more thought out. Consider if you will:

Example A: "Why does Wrestler A suck so much?"

Example B:"Wrestler A Why does he suck?"

It seems like more effort went into Example B than Example A, even if the intial post is just as inept.

It's ... a line from the show. Sorry. But "The television show Arrested Development to return for new episodes in fall 2005?" a) did not quite convey the excitement that I and persons like me were x-periencing, and b) sux.

I did not recognize that thread titles are like peak-a-boo and when I cover my eyes I disappear. VANISH!

It certainly wasn't meant that way. I was merely making an observation and providing a suggestion to avoid something like that happening again, that's all.

And yes, I realize it was a line from the show (being a fan of it myself), and therefore read the thread, but it was more that I could see why people might have skipped it thinking it was something else entirely pertaining to the show that they might not have been interested in.

Edit - I meant "I didn't mean for Justin to take it as a criticism."

I actually wasn't really taking it personally, or as a criticism, or trying to be mean. Let's all play peak-a-boo -- as friends.
