Changes to forums and comments
I noticed some of the threads failed to reappear, specifically mbeaulieu07s annual draft thread started a couple of days ago.
Dottie...the mbeaulieu07 2013 NFL Draft thread has nothing to do with "Patriots on the Front Burner", or the 2012 NFL season. It certainly
merit preferential treatment, by pinning it atop all other threads, for the same reasons which I cited in my "letter" to you, above, regarding the Fantasy Football thread.
The 2013 draft is 9 months away. To attempt to predict which players will be selected by which NFL team, prior to the completion of both the 2012 NFL and NCAA seasons, is an exercise in futility.
Be that as it may, unlike the Fantasy Football thread, the 2013 draft thread deals with real football. Mbeaulieu and a handful of others discuss the merits of college players, at each position. Because it deals with real football, there should be a place for that thread on this forum.
Again...it should not receive preferential treatment by being permanently pinned atop all other threads. Though a handful of posters really get into discussing college prospects year round, most posters and football fans don't start paying attention to the draft until the conclusion of the 2012 football season...around February. Until that time, the NFL Draft thread will occasionally disappear from view, due to lack of interest.
But, from February through May, draft talk dominates the forum. Rather than start separate threads on the upcoming draft, most posters prefer to post under the thread, with the general title of, 2013 NFL Draft. During this time, a very large number of posts tend to accumulate under this one thread. It is similar to the way posts accumulate under the Patriots' Game Day posts, which are always started by the poster, Rocky.
Over the years, there's never been a need to prop up the NFL Draft thread by affixing the thread atop all others. If a thread is of interest, it sustains itself...and posters don't, and won't have any problems finding it.
Thank you again for your kind attention. Please excuse any spelling errors (I really miss the spell-check feature!) Have a good day!
