Who's up for an "Official Dallas Mavericks Discussion Thread"!?!? It would consolidate all those yucky threads we see into one neat and packaged place for all of our Mavs related discussion! We would be nothing like that heathen, barbaric db.com! It would save Dallas-Mavs.com billions in message board taxes!

Exactly.

No one has ever said that.

It's not that anyone is making the catch-all threads the only acceptable places to post. It's that that's how they are being used.

The last page of the "general NBA" thread includes sub-threads on Durant's hot streak, nba security, and Oden's pictures, articles on Del Harris's retirement and on Duncan'ts ( ) contract, and Nash's ridiculous man commercials. Is none of that worth discussing on it's own?

If you ask me, the problem with the "general" threads is that they make people lazy about starting conversations. It's too easy to just post an article or a link as some random item rather than presenting something in a way that will get people excited about talking about it.

Murphy, KG, Sike, you guys are the ones I want to hear from so its good to see that you all have opinions either way. As for posting threads, I'm usually very reluctant to start new threads as a norm. I have been on the db.com board because even though I have to wade through a bunch of stupid thread titles and some worthless threads, I get the breaking news quicker. That said I like the knowledge of the folks here better so I'm torn and thus my making this thread. As someone stated if a new thread had been cretaed on the Butler trade when it was said to be final, then I could have skipped the rumor section. Then when it wondered off into a sub topic such as minute distribution I think it would have been better for that to be another thread even though its related because there were plenty of people who might want to comment on that who didn't know to look in the butler trade thread for that conversation. Again I did not read the thread so how many tangents did it take? For instance I'm sure the trade exception was discussed in there and should still be getting discussed but its not on the first two pages of threads? How is someone supposed to know you guys even had anything to say on the topic? I guess I'll go ask the question.

I guess it's just not that big of a problem to me having separate threads for separate topics because I use this handy feature called "New Posts" where I only look at a screen with threads that have new posts in them. If I ever have to go to the dreaded 2nd page of that (which I think I have done like 4 times in my years here) then it is still less time taken away from me than going to one thread and having to read through pages of posts I couldnt care less about to get the info I want to know.

For some, the more threads we have the easier it is to sort, for others, they'ld rather have everything jumbled together...

Each of us have our way of enjoying the board...if we didn't we'ld go somewhere else.

Kudos for having a Mavs Board PERIOD!!! It's a nice place to have watercooler talk regardless of how enlightened or retarded a comment can be.

Our 6th man and top 2 game finisher is out with a broken face. Where are we discussing his potential return? In a "Miscellaneous News" thread, jumbled up with which games are on tv right now and a ping pong tournament.

This board is seriously losing it's ability to maintain a coherent discussion.

i think there is a lot of stigma regarding making new threads because for such a long time, people like horse would start a new pointless thread every other day. Sorry for using you as an example horse, but you were pretty bad there for awhile. Not so much anymore...but...anyway. Maybe some of the more veteran members want to keep it like that. I mean, i know when you are a new member; it is kind of exciting to start new threads. I think there should be some leniency as far as not blasting a guy for starting a new thread, but at the same time, when the problem is as bad like back when horse was doing his thing...then maybe he should be suspended or banned.

Punish the dopes who posted a major topic within a Miscellaneous thread by leaving their contributions to die a slow death in the Miscellaneous thread.

I haven't looked at the Miscellaneous thread. It's the dumbest idea I've ever seen. I don't even know what it's about. If there was a JET Inury Watch thread I'd be right there. So would dozens of others.

So, the owner of this site never comes here anymore but still pays for the site to be up?

I've been seeing a few successful sports forums go down lately do to not being able to pay the server bills (too high) anymore.

This thread has my vote for "Most Entertaining Thread of the Year".

Seriously, how the hell did I miss this thread?
