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.

Is there any chance of having a "sort by average rating given" feature on the W-list since we can see that info in profiles now? Or if that takes too much work, maybe you could just give us the highs and lows after sweeps is over?
