    Should regs be posted on main board? 7th Oct 17 at 1:39 PM
    A brief discussion on another thread has prompted me to ask, should we be posting regular comps on the main board?

    I think we should. When a new comp is posted directly to the regs, I'm sure that lots of us miss out on seeing them. I would have them posted on the main board, and then linking that post to the regulars board. I don't know what the best system would be:

    1) Posting on the main board with an end date of E: 31/12

    2) Having an on-going thread on the main board which gets bumped when new regular comps are posted

    3) What about posting them all with an end date E: 31/13? Would this prevent them from being expired?

    4) Any other suggestions?

    5) Not posting them on the main board at all.

    I have added a poll. Please vote, or if you are not sure, wait to see how the discussion goes and you can vote later when you've decided. Feel free to discuss/explain your choice.

    This is the first ever mention of A SINGLE THREAD for ongoing comps. I am sure everyone else is assuming each comp would have its own thread.

    I am pretty sure a single thread would cause numerous problems.

    PS. All regulars have been moved to the main board. Regulars just contains the indexes.

    With the use of E: 00/00 then if you sort the forum by ascending description then all the E: 00/00 appear at the beginning (after the few remaining advents).

    These links will do it for you:

    1) 20 threads per page

    2) 50 threads per page

    3) 100 threads per page

    As they are now is just fine.

    Has a post been removed?

    I very much doubt I set up an end date. I've just had a try at editing it, to see if I could set one up to end very soon, but couldn't see how to access the poll for editing. I also looked for a delete button, but couldn't see one.

    Perhaps we should click 'spam' to remove it from the board?

    Thanks for your pearls, as always, mjm. I have reported it and asked for it to be deleted or locked. Feel free to do the same, if you think it will help.
