I totally disagree. I like Facebook, but still post here fairly regularly. There is room for both, and I certainly wouldn't want Facebook going under.

The same type of grouping can be done for the other decades. Instead, each sitcom has it's own forum which is too unwieldy.
I definitely prefer the current setup where most shows have their own board. Even if they are shows I don't like, there is a place for fans of them to discuss it here. Every show board lumped together would not be good, we do have the General Sitcoms and General Dramas board where it is for discussion of multiple shows.

I agree with your second paragraph but I do like having a subforum for each show. I think there should be a way to filter only the subforums you want (by decade, etc.) when you click "View Today's Active Threads".

We just could use more folks who post on multiple boards. We still have quite a bit of activity for having less than 200 members logging in on a daily basis and around 2000 in the last 6 months. The last few months had decreased activity for some reason, but maybe people are home more often in the winter months.

If we had only sections for General Sitcoms News and Questions, Current Sitcoms, Classic Sitcoms and Chit Chat, it would look a lot more active. People would complain then because things weren't organized or easy to find. The current format that we've always used works. The sitcoms which aren't on DVD or air regularly on TV are difficult to discuss. The boards are here for people who wish to use them.

I don't think it would be possible to even set it up that way. The way it is now the decades are set as the parents and the sub-forums are set as the child forums.

The issue is not with having too many sub-forums. We just don't have that many active members logging in on a regular basis. Even when we had many more regulars, the classic sitcoms were always more popular. That's always been our audience. It's our bread and butter.

You could subscribe to any forums you are interested in and then follow them in the User CP - Subscribed Threads section.



You can view subscriptions in the User CP. Individual threads can also be subscribed to. There's also an option to receive e-mail notifications.
https://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards...php?folderid=0

You could also create some custom searches for only the forums you are interested in.

Add &include= and the forum id at the end with a comma separating any of the forums

only General Sitcoms Online News and Discussion & TV Series on DVD/Streaming
https://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards...include=27,538
https://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards...include=27,538

You can also exclude any forums from the searches by adding &exclude= and the forum id at the end with a comma separating any of the forums

No Chit Chat - Games
https://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards...ly&exclude=346
https://www.sitcomsonline.com/boards...ew&exclude=346

You can include and exclude individual forums from the search by the methods listed above. I'm not sure how many forums ids it would work with. I don't think it will work by decade since no posts are allowed in the decades listings.

An easier way would be to just subscribe to the forums you are interested in and view them in the User CP.

Thanks. I'm glad we still have some active long-time members like yourself after all these years. We just lost a lot of people to Facebook, Twitter, etc. We still have a good core group.

How come anyone would quit a group because of those 2 sites?

Yep. And I think I’m one of them. Facebook Shmacebook and Twitter bore me to tears. Do almost no posting on either

If you like to be 100 percent tracked, seemingly with everything you do online, Facebook is your place.

And IMO Twitter is a bot-fested cesspool.

I never read those but they're probably pointless and should be closed.
