Separate forum for Google update threads .. and not counting towards member post count claus msg:4140203 3:19 pm on May 26, 2010 (gmt 0) I suggest a separate forum with ONLY Google update threads (you know, the marathon ones). Nothing else should be discussed in that new forum. Collect all the current ones and all the past ones there: all those threads should be removed from the Google SEO forum. I also suggest that those update threads do not get featured in the "recent posts" list. Oh, and a post in that new forum should not count in the total post count for a member posting there.

What difference does it make if they count towards post counts or not? Quality or quantity .. you make your own choice :-)

I imagine quite a few people find that thread a collection of "me too" & [pointless drivel], shot through with analytical masturbation. However, when you learn to strip out the dross, its probably one of the most helpful things going. Not to mention, it informs many of the other SEO threads. So, I think it should stay, very possibly pinned. claus msg:4140260 3:49 pm on May 26, 2010 (gmt 0)
The good thing about collecting them all in one separate forum is that it's way easier to find them. Also historical ones, so that you may see parallels to current developments. The thing about post count is because the majority of posts in those threads are of very low quality. If they don't count towards post count there is no motivation for people to post "me too" posts just to get that figure higher. So, it just might improve overall quality. ---- ADDED: I suggest that in that new forum it should be allowed to post example search queries.
