    Yeah, really to me it'd just be completely fine to go with megathreads if the search function weren't borked. Otherwise I suppose you could divide it down a tad but too much and you're just going to have an increase of little problems.
    I think chapter by chapter can be more efficient as it handles the issue of search being borked and not being able to search for the latest info. But yeah I agree if the search function simply worked normally this wouldn't be as much of an issue.

    The issue with numerous threads for me is that, all the time, something is going to be related to something else
    So you're going to get Extella info in your GO threads and other stuff because everything in the Nasuverse is pretty much linked
    Having separate threads means you have to remember more places where specific info or previous discussion could have taken place
    At the very least for the GD and GO megathreads, if you go through google search and specify the megathread, more than 50% of the time, you can find what you're looking for.
    Well my problem with that is that's a stretch to tell noobs to do that. And its p easy for you to have a better general idea of finding what you want if you know the general locations for stuff (like say if I wanted to read posts from back when Washington or Camelot came out I'd have to sift through dozens of pages of characters being mentioned that wasn't relevant for what I'm looking for).

    I'll be honest in that I've never looked through a megathread even once except for the op or latest posts cause of how daunting the huge amount of pages of shit there is in one so I wouldn't miss them in the slightest.
    I actually asked Hidari this. I always thought it was thread size that caused the search function breaking (and it is to a small extent). The real villain though is thread merges. Apparently thread merges is what caused the search function to get borked. I don't think the mods should use thread merge now, just lock and be done with it >_>;;;. And they don't know how to fix it? At least that's the impression I got.

    Doesn't multiple threads just compound that issue? If you don't know which thread has what your looking for you have to look through all of them.

    I mean I'd rather just encourage them to ask the question again rather then allowing people to say 'read the thread'.

    Ya if we keep an index thread than I prefer individual threads as opposed to megathreads.

    The question is who will upkeep the index.

    Events getting a thread is fine. And eventually the chapter will be pushed off the page.

    I'm sure it could be arranged for a few grand order forum enthusiasts to volunteer for this social service!

    Depending on what's required, I'd probably be happy to volunteer for something like that. Though I've begun to worry lately that I may be taking on too many projects at once...

    I'm fine with them personally but they aren't conductive to attractive new posters.
