2019 Airshow topics?

Post by Nighthawk117 » Tue Jun 11, 2019 11:18 am

It's maybe just me but the forum is now very messy with all the creation of topics about all airshow across the planet. I understand the good faith of the person, but it's now very hard to find the interesting one. If nobody had talked about a show before, maybe there was no interest in it, why create a topic? There is already the calendar section to see all the shows, I do not see the interest of all these topics. Am I the only one to think this way?

I've gotten a few comments on it and I understand the concern, but I think given a little while the active discussions will filter back to the top. It's nice to have threads on each show (at least US shows) to offer more info than the calendar can by itself, and to reach a wider audience through search keywords. I think we've probably reached the end of the new ones so more robust discussions should start dominating again.

You can always use the search box to look for a certain thread if you can't find it.

He has done a great job compiling all of that info, we'll just have to find a happy balance. Hopefully next year we'll get much of the list out of the way earlier so it doesn't interrupt anything!

I had a similar reaction. My thought is that at this point, most of the shows being added will never be viewed again since, if there was interest, a thread would already have been created. However, I think the effort is valid, and if it can be done early in, or before, the airshow season started it would be much more useful. Very similar to the forums on the old Fencecheck site where the shows topics were all added very early on, at the same time, before the forum from that season was very active. That way, moderately popular threads will stay close to the top and easier to find during the season than is the case here where they are now buried. My two cents....
