So I like many people, frequent the NeoGAF forums. They have a system or, "Member Etiquette", which stops people from posting the same thread over and over again. They have "|OT|" threads, "|OT|" meaning 'Official Thread'. These are threads that keep all discussion for said topic in the one place. Take the Halo 4 threads in The Flood as an example. There are many threads about the same thing. Now, if we had one "official" thread for this topic, it would keep the forums from having the same threads created over and over again and it would also keep the discussion in the one place where it can flow and people can discuss. We [i]kind of[/i] already have something like this in [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=15804986]Durado's Title Thread[/url]. Now, obviously |OT| threads would only be used for major topics such as major games, events and maybe even news. So what would make a thread "official"? Like on the GAF, the |OT| would have to contain relevant information to help people learn about said topic and would have to be structured in a particular way. It can't just be someone saying "Guys, this is the [i]official[/i] thread! Post here!" Just a thought. I personally don't really have a stand on whether a |OT| system would benefit Bungie.net. Just thought it might be interesting to discuss. Lastly, If you're against this idea, can you think of any other substitute which might see the decline in repeat topics?
