Rise of the Megathread
Is a mega thread the same as a successful thread?
Tune association, Winters all inclusive rugby and the Ski & Snowboard threads are all successful. Mega threads are those that gradually descend in to petty name calling, semantic bickering and, ultimately, the final seal of mega-ness, the lockdown.Posted 4 years ago

Haven’t dipped into any of the above, TBH, although I’m sure they’re awesome. 2182 posts on skiing and snowboarding is a feat in its own right. 😉
So, what’s your secret, CFH – what magic powder did you spray on the S&S thread to give it eternal life?Posted 4 years ago

I can only lay claim to starting it! Beyond that, it’s the people that make a “successful” thread (and/or forum, IMHO). The S&S thread is all about having fun, and the banter and delight that goes with it. Lots of experience, knowledge, opinion and pictures/film, all shared in a non-catty, non-judgemental place. Well, unless you’er a telemarker, in which case you’re fair game for all the abuse we can muster! 😉
Also, it helps that it’s a non-contentious topic (apart from the perennial board v ski argument. Well, not really an argument, as skis are betterer. FACT!). The rugby thread manages to self-moderate pretty well, I think, when more touchy issues and silliness crop up.Posted 4 years ago
Pete68 that thread you are talking about would be a gigathread. Vickypea rudeness does not actually barr anyone from contributing to a megathread, some would say rudeness is a prerequisite for anyone who wishes to be a serious megathread poster. Meantime we should all be very careful because somewhere in the digital world there’s a Terrathread waiting…… 🙂Posted 4 years ago
