Recently there's been a very large spate of new threads being created about the same thing (most notably the Great Judd Meltdown). If there's a big story, please check there isn't a thread about it already in existence before you post. If there's a related thread, use that. I think I merged about 15-20 threads into the Combined Judd Thread - there was absolutely no need for so many different threads on the same topic.

Additionally, please don't start threads about other threads or posts. If you want to comment on them, comment in the thread in which they were created.

In the future if I'm feeling nice, duplicate threads will be merged. If I'm not, then the later created thread will just be binned.

Consider this an addendum to the rules. You have read the rules, right? The ones you can find HERE

Should have done a temp Chris Judd board like BF Q, the combined Judd thread is a mess. If you stuck them all on one board the more repetitive threads would just sink to the bottom rather than getting lost in the shuffle and it would be easier to see what is already being discussed.

All you've got now is a massive Judd thread that people who want to discuss side issues or particular aspects will struggle to find if it has already been talked about and therefore will probably start a new thread anyway.

There's a search option within each thread.

Plus there's no way I'm making a sub board about an ex-player....

ahh fair enough...

I mean, I'd suggest a title for the forum that might be more acceptable, but my titles keep making the papers and getting complaints. :wink:

PS My Judd quote game don't count as another Judd thread Q

At BF? Hey, there are outstanding PMs there! I thought you were supposed to get a popup there as well. Probably didn't notice as my new job is kind of busy, hence the desire to kick people that tell me to spend more time moderating this site....

Is there something wrong with the 'Active Topics' filter?

I keep getting "No suitable matches were found.".

Yet on looking at the forums, it is plain that there are active topics.

Hmmm. I just ran an update to the software (required, hopefully will kill the odd spammer), which may have affected this. I'll try and have a look at it.

(not that it's a feature I have ever actually used myself ;))

Are you kidding me? It's the first thing I look at. V good for getting onto what's live and happening when on a quick visit.
