View Full Version : Multiple threads about the same subject

This (created two weeks ago):
Best villains in Square Enix History
na.square-enix.com/go/thread/view/139231... (/go/thread/view/139231/29183075/Best_villains_in_Square_Enix_History)

Versus this (created one day ago):
What's everyone's favorite villain?
na.square-enix.com/go/thread/view/139231... (/go/thread/view/139231/29204173/Whats_everyones_favorite_villain)

Personally, I always search the forum before starting a new thread ("Please use the search function placed at the top of the forum to see if your questions have already been answered. If there happens to be a thread with similar topics, please divert your questions to that particular thread."), but what to do in this case? Multiple threads about the exact same subject can be a little confusing, I must say...

27th Jun 2012, 14:38
You're right, but I had no choice but to laugh since the later post was started by an Admin.

27th Jun 2012, 14:41

You're right. How strange. Maybe they should have edited the old thread instead of creating a new one (that's what I always did in my group -FFVII Excavation-, simply adding a little more info can never be wrong)? This way, it's more than confusing.

27th Jun 2012, 14:53
I remember. I had just joined that group before the site went under mantainence. It was pretty well organized. I can't wait for that feature to come back (if it does).

27th Jun 2012, 14:58
Thank you for thinking so. Well, since there is a groups tab on our personal pages, they are probably planning on reintroducing a similar system sometime soon. Otherwise, they would probably not have included it in the new version of this site, but added it later on (if ever).

However, in the KH3D forum, the following threads were locked:

I wonder why it's different when an admin creates a thread?

It's not, wonder no more as the moderator created thread has been removed.

28th Jun 2012, 14:06
Heh, gotcha. ^_-

Anyway: Thanks.

Calling this now: please don't derail the topic at hand by bringing a personal conflict into this thread.

28th Jun 2012, 15:52
ok ok.

like i said if there are many threads about the same subject aren't they supposed to be deleted or something?

That's exactly what just happened to one of the threads about Square Enix villains. That, or they are locked.

hmm. i see.

Bringing this up again due to the multitude of topics that have cropped up regarding Final Fantasy Versus XIII. I understand that people are generally excited about it with rumors and speculation going about (it's even a talking point in my house right now), but there's honestly more threads than are necessary here.

23rd Jul 2012, 12:02
I fully agree. In fact, I thought it had gone so far that I even started a betting thread to earn some gil from the Chaos. Feel free to delete it, I would rather have only one single thread about Versus.

23rd Jul 2012, 12:25

24th Jul 2012, 00:59
As of now, there are 28 threads about FINAL FANTASY VERSUS XIII.

24th Jul 2012, 02:02
I will have to agree on that one, however, some of them.i.e the RUMOR thread I started was kept out of the canon thread so as not to fill it up with unecessary info, and it makes it easier for people searching on a specific topic such as the cancellation(WHICH TURNED OUT NOT TO BE TRUE, and thus would have filled the canon thread with unecessary junk). Its has gotten a bit out of habd but am sure the users can differntiate between the threads that are really trying to help and provide information and, well, all the others. Its also the right of each user to make a thread, I they think the best thing would be to add a Versus XIII forum since its been confirmed that its still in production and move the threads there, like they have with the main series threads,VII,VIII and so on. That will b more effective.

24th Jul 2012, 02:24
I mentioned briefly the idea of possibly merging threads, but I don't know if that's possible...

Also, along with not bothering to search the forums, a lot of people don't bother to post in an existing thread and just start their own. A few of those threads were in response to the specific "cancelled rumour". It easily could've been posted to the initial cancelled rumour thread as regular post or rebuttal.

Plus I know one of the recent threads is about the same exact thing made almost a month ago.

Anyways, it seems as if the rumour turned out to be false, so half those thread could just disappear, but who am I to judge?

I feel kind of snobbish for saying this, but there should be some proper posting etiquette with forums. Don't post spam, don't double post (holy moly, so many double, heck, triple posts; serious pet peeve of mine-there's an edit button for a reason, people X_x), have a min character requirement in a post, no swearing (though it seems there's some coding in the site already that censors the naughty words, so whatever, lol).

Then again, this isn't like a lot of forums out there. It's devoted only to S-E related topics (which is fine by me; I go to other places for my other interests and convos), so restriciton on topics, but freedom in other ways..?

24th Jul 2012, 02:32
I might be good that there is multiples so not 1000 people are posting at the same time and you do not know what they are talking about

24th Jul 2012, 02:34
It's not that merging threads isn't possible, but the mess it would make by doing so with all the topics just jumbled together with no coherence.

NT, the things you mention feeling snobbish for is something that (having grown up participating in forums with more strictly defined and moderated rules) I take for common sense, personally... but that is a topic for elsewhere.

24th Jul 2012, 02:49
There. At least there will be one Versus thread less.

HA you still have to give me my 100000 gil

24th Jul 2012, 02:56
*The Magic Bookie is already gone. Missed out on the extra gil... T_T*

As I said, I wasn't even there to receive them by the time you dropped by. Unless someone else has taken them, they should still be lying around until said thread is deleted.

--- Too late, the thread has already been removed. Thanks!

One down, another one appears.

28 threads, huh...that's more than twice as many as there are Dissidia threads, for example.

Together they make up more then a third of the FINAL FANTASY Series General Discussion forum.

If only there was a Versus forum in the FINAL FANTASY Titles section (or a Fabula Nova Crystallis forum for XIII, XIII-2, TYPE-0 and Versus), then all of these threads could be relocated there so that they didn't get in the way of the other topics. I know neither TYPE-0 nor Versus have been announced for the English market, but still...
