or a one rule thread.
the amount of CE threads is getting daft.
I will get flamed, but why so many ??

I think that whenever there is a topic that has an extremely high level of interest, it would be useful to gather all threads together. After all, that's what is being done by having all the sections, isn't it? An attempt to get similar discussions together in one place for ease of reference.

I agree. Merge into one thread or something, as they've done with hot news stories before.

Samcro Fri 09-Jan-15 16:33:25

hiding is an answer
but there are so many,
just for shits and giggles, if you hid them all how many have you had to hide??

What's CE?

I wonder if I'm on them, these annoying threads?

Ched Evans

Oh blush thanks Nydj

I was trying to think of a concept or an abstract, that was CE.

Really OP, is a load of people expressing their outrage about this, something that bothers you so much?

Oh ok. I haven't seen many threads so I guess i didn't realise it (the no of them) was an issue.

MNHQ have said 'no' before when asked to merge threads (I've seen it in other forums I haunt, but never here).

I'd leave CE threads where they are. If it's going to run for months, then a topic (so people, who aren't fans can hide it) has been tried - like the Royal Family - but they turn to tumbleweed, MNHQ don't always move threads anyhow and posters don't like even the mildest suggestion of 'use the topic'.

oh people LET IT GO fgs with Ched Evans - go and worry about all the other sex offenders or SOMETHING ITS SO FRICKEN DULL

I think they did something with the Madeleine McCann threads.

ZammoMcGuire Fri 09-Jan-15 17:44:50

ONE DREAMS soupster,

- remember the dream woman? grin

I would like a topic so I could hide it. Or a klaxon if anyone actually says anything new on a thread about CE.

I did an AS yesterday just with CE in the title and it brought up 35 threads.

ZammoMcGuire Fri 09-Jan-15 17:51:57

all the arguments on it have been aired.


SauvignonBlanche Fri 09-Jan-15 17:52:49

At one point last night it looked like every other thread in Active was about CE.

ZammoMcGuire Fri 09-Jan-15 17:57:55

i doubt if many posters can name a single other player of Oldham Athletic their kids are busy seeing as role models grin

actually mn hq/tech, what would be great would be if you could implement a filter system, so a poster could have an option to filter out all threads which contain certain words. So type in ched evans into your filter box and bingo, they're all gone.

Samcro Fri 09-Jan-15 18:52:06

of course people are angry about him, but how many threads do you need?
35 threads??
over kill.

ItsAllKickingOffPru Fri 09-Jan-15 19:09:00

Well, it never works with Christmas so I don't hold out much hope it would work for any other bunch of threads on a theme.
MNHQ aren't the Tidy Up Imps, sweeping away stuff we don't like. Just click Hide.

ImBatDog Fri 09-Jan-15 19:15:29

i all for this, sick of seeing them everywhere.

WannaBe Fri 09-Jan-15 19:38:28

and reality is that people are so sick of seeing them that they won't click on them any more and then it will be left to a minority to talk about.
