Better handling of the update threads

Why can't a new seperate forum be setup for the google dan-ces (they are back) - no matter what your logic multiple 67 page threads are no good to anyone..

Thanks for the excellent forums,

Thanks for the idea, hitchhiker.

If we knew for sure that there would be regular, major Google upheavals well into the future, we could make a better decision about this. But of course, we don't know that. From my understanding, G is aiming for more of an "always updating" kind of thing.

I'm personally glad to see just a few long, clearly identified threads, which I can easily identify and then chose to read or skip. And I enjoy reading through them from time to time so I can get more of a cross-market view of how different people are being affected.

Maybe a section called

Google Updates - all google dancing and fresh tags.

However i have to agree i also thought that this could be one of the last major Google dancers before they moved onto the rolling updates.

Been here for over a year now, great work by all the mods and members.

We've thought about. The major problem is the updates act like a virus and tend to infect everything. Not just in the one forum, but almost all the other forums too. From the SEO forums, to the se forums, trying to box in the updates to one forum, just isn't possible.

Given there would be 'bleed' but IMHO 2 factors prevail:

- People want to read about updates - should they be continuing from here on
- Massive threads are clumsy and hard to follow (limited value) (I disagree Tedster)

Perhaps dealing with the initial overflow will cause some strain on the mods but eventually the regulars will get the message and limit them to that environment. It seems like you consider the dance topics an annoying by-product!

btw: While I get the chance - I'm running a very successful English language forum thanks to the skills I learnt from watching you guys here - So thanks and respect.
