On the same note we can list our opinions on what types of posts are mostly fodder.
Let's start two threads once the dance begins.
1.Vent your frustrations here if your SERPs are dropping.
2.Pat yourself on the back here if your SERPs are up.
I think this would give everybody a place to tell others who understand what they might be feeling as well as moving most of the non analytical posts from the more technical threads.
Since we can't post real search phrases let's avoid posts that go like this...
It would be great to just focus update threads to 3 or 4, but recently, you can have 15-20 threads going at one time, must be a logistics nightmare for the mods.
I think 3 threads would work perfectly.
"Just trying to figure things out" (non-opinionated)
This might eliminate the "emotionally" driven posts that clog up the flow of actual information for folks who are just trying to sort out what's going on.
I say go for three threads. One for the "joy" one for the "rants" and one for the "genuine info" then after the hype is over the joy and rant threads can get cut leaving only the usefull info for the site search.
Personally, I think two threads would do the job, and don't really see the reason to separate "joy" from "rants" -- and I don't think it'll work. Once someone says what they did and what the results are, good or bad, the next person who did something similar but with opposite results is going to follow that "rant" with their own "joy," or vice versa.
Put all of the commentary about ones' own update-related results in one thread, and the "genuine info" and analysis about the update in another.
I think the outlook for organized posting looks bleak judging from the response to this thread (not to insult the people who posted!) If we don't have any agreement from a sizable group of members, or some skillful moderating it will be another free-for-all.
The slow response is probably because the thread got moved from Google News to this forum. Sometimes I think people only read the Google news, especially right now!
