    Thread Titles

    In the Edge, is there now a limit on the number of characters that can be used for the title? I just started a new thread on V&T and could only use a limited number of characters in the title. It may be a problem with my browser (Google Chrome)

    Yes, there is now a limit. It was getting out of control

    I'm going to hijack this thread to ask if GS really needs new threads for every news story and report about certain skaters. While it's very nice that Johnny Weir will cook again, Meryl Davis's grandmother is from London and Max Aaron was profiled by the Times of Israel, wouldn't it be more efficient to have a single thread for each high profile skater/team and update it, rather than creating new ones seemingly whenever they leave the house or some random newspaper writes about them?

    No because new tidbits get "buried". Some people don't like to visit an ongoing thread of over hundred posts to dig for news

    OTOH, some people don't like seeing interesting topics buried by threads about tidbits; there are so many trivial news stories currently highlighted in the Edge that a lot of discussions quickly get bumped off the first page and are thus forgotten. I think that's unfortunate because it leads to short discussions and in many cases, less participation.

    But obviously this is your decision to make, not mine.

    I don't personally consider any news "trivial", but nevertheless, I have increased the number of threads shown on the first page by "10", so that should take care of the bumping issue
