I really see no point to them. I just don't think we need to make these every week. It only reaches 2 or 3 pages and then it gets locked. In another wrestling forum I go to, the weekly live discussions go to 100+ pages. Since this forum is smaller and has less activity, I think the only live threads we should have are perhaps for PPVs (or just have one general PPV thread) and just post about Raw and SD live in the already made general Raw/SD threads.
 
 
Just my personal opinion.  It already doesn't make sense to me why we have general threads for Raw/SD yet we have weekly live discussions. Why not just post in the threads already made? Sometimes, the live threads end up being two or three people talking to each other the whole time anyways. Kind of a waste of a thread when it could just be added to the stickied Raw/SD threads.

Jade, I think you should've seen the threads from before Raw became as irredeemably lame as it is today. You'd be surprised how much activity Raw is able to spark here when it consistently has some countable measure of good stuff.

yeah, the RAW threads use to garner over 100 posts every single week and sometimes even approach the 200 mark depending on how good the shows were.  We've been talking about a different way to do the weekly discussions until RAW picks back up.  I suggested doing a monthly thread--4 weeks or 5 depending on how many weeks are in the month--then closing it and starting a new one the next month.

I think that is the best way to do it, then again, why not just have one whole Discussion thread about Raw? Instead of doing it monthly just have one big Raw Discussion thread from now on, until Raw picks up.

* I thought we had agreed to use existing threads while the show is getting little activity Confused
 
 
* That's why I made the original Raw thread an announcement topic.
 
* Plus it doesn't stop a convo when someone can't reply to a locked thread after the show as finished.

I didnt make it in to the chat last night but yeah I thought that was what we were going to do for the time being.

With SD and PPV chats they always go in the existing threads so doing the same for Raw makes sense at least untill interest picks up.

With interest at a all time low a live-chat thread of any kind does seem pointless I must admit because the post count will be low and then it gets locked anyway.
The monthly thread isnt a bad idea but I would just go with using the Raw thread for now.

Oh sorry, that was the fault on my end for starting up a separate thread last night. I saw MH and Pac on, and started one considering it might be the three of us plus anyone else that might pop in. But I'll stick with the normal Raw thread from now until things kick back up again. Again, sorry for that.

Every one should start watching TNA so that people would get in love with wrestling again and care. Because those of you not watching it are missing out. Just cut your WWE umbilical cord and CROSS THE LINE. Because if you do, people will have something to talk about here. Believe me, TNA is way better than anything WWE has.

Anyone think both Raw and Impact being on the same night might make these start working again?
 
Tonight people can use the announcement threads for Raw, Impact and WWE/TNA to post their views.
 
If enough watch either of the shows tonight maybe it can be looked at.

Only among the US members, over here Raw is on live to late(2am) for most people who have work the next day ect, and as for Impact I would guess that will still be shown on saturdays.
