Will make two additional points regarding that request:
- The lengthy Senior B threads also are difficult to follow because some posts are immediate reactions in real time to live streaming of the competitions -- whereas other comments are "delayed" reactions to events that concluded hours or days ago.
What I mean is that some GS members understandably are not able to view live streaming (either because of geoblocking or inconvenient timing, or for other good reasons), so they are watching archived video much later and posting then. Nothing at all wrong with that -- in fact some people both watch in real time and then go back and re-watch videos later too
-- but the dichotomy means that comments about the previous day's SD are getting jumbled (and potentially "lost") among those about the current day's men's LP, for example.
- All respect to the junior skaters
... but IMHO, something seems out of balance in that the JGP sub-forums do not necessarily get huge amounts of traffic, but they do allow multiple threads within the sub-forums. I'm all for keeping the JGP sub-forums as they are, but also giving equal due to Senior Bs (at least the biggies among the Senior Bs).
Again, I mean no disrespect to the junior skaters. And I think it's great that the ISU posts all of the JGP programs on YouTube.
