    Yeah, we have that reputation, especially on the Fate subreddits.

    I've always wondered if anyone has been singled out as a snoot. Or the sentiment is the BL culture.

    Speaking solely off of the subreddits, I've never seen anyone singled out.

    Just BL in general, at least that's what I knew of it before I started lurking around. Never saw any names mentioned.

    I think that might have been true say 5-6 years ago but less so now.
    BL is now mostly either Random Thoughts or GO general with a dash of No longer in GD GO ham wild Create-a-Servant

    > BL is random thoughts

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    I barely check most of the site anymore because combing through for actual content is a tremendous chore.

    I used to try to mitigate this by making lists/digests, but then I became busier and less committed.

    Systematic content curating of any kind would have helped, but I'm afraid it's a bit too late now.

    also someone (not you coke) translate the last 3 chapters of KnK pls

    I've just noticed the former post didn't touch the subject of megathreads, so, *inhales deeply*

    MEGA VS MICRO THREADS: A CONTENT CURATOR'S PERSPECTIVE

    MEGATHREADS MICROTHREADS
    + Simplify the general search for content by centralizing it Simplify the search for specific content
    Make new content prominent
    - Topics become muddled
    Lines of discussion intermingle
    Threads become noisy and hard to navigate
    Eventually the front page becomes an intimidating cromlech of old threads
    Thread index becomes noisy
    Old content becomes buried and hard to review in absence of decent curating tools

    For microthreads to work you need a reddit kind of system where the good stuff floats to the top.

    Macrothreads don't work, period.

    In either case, a vBulletin forum isn't a good way to store content unless several people put a ton of work.

    I propose a new system where there is only one thread, but all posts are automatically deleted after ten minutes and content curation is handled in the memory of whoever happened to be around to see it.

    ah, the good old "I totally recall arai saying that in old BL" argument
