  • Message Board Changes

    After watching the message board for a couple weeks, looking for trends, we've decided to split the board in two. There are now an Historical board and a Current Events Board.

    Current Events-
    http://www.trackandfieldnews.com/tfn/di ... sp?forum=1

    Historical-
    http://www.trackandfieldnews.com/tfn/di ... sp?forum=5

    I've tried to move previous posts on the single board to their proper new home. It is quite possible I made a mistake or missed one. If so, please let me know via email [email protected]

    This makes sense, I guess.
    But for those of us who would like to read (and/or write) in both categories: is it an idea to put a button/link/whatever 'current' above the historical index - and vice versa?

      Mmm. After that message, I noticed you can get to the general index (consisting of the two categories by clicking 'T&FN Message Board >'. So you can get there in a few clicks, thereby decreasing the need for my suggested buttons...

        I'm going to add those links anyway. It will save you a click and won't get in the way.

          I hope you'll reconsider. I like just being able to talk track, period, not having to check more than one board. If you're going to keep it divided, please don't fragment it any more than this.

            FWIW, I agree with Lee.

              Maybe I'm spoilt with a big screen and fast connection, but I've found the easy thing to do with the new setup is simply to open two windows in my browser, one for each forum.

                The fact that there have been exactly two messages posted on the Historical Board in the past 12 hours suggests that perhaps this split was premature.

                  also, a thread in one direction naturally spreads sometimes to others, which within reason is ok. I think you should undo this idea at least for the time being. " Historical" and "Current Events" can have a big and justifiable overlap.

                    Aside from how the threads get categorized in the future...
                    kudos to T&FN for increasing the value of their product in the last few months. I canceled my subscription about a year ago because I felt at $44 the magazine was not reasonably priced for a few extra details of old news.

                    You've since added the ETN newsletter, this message board, and interesting online content like the Krummenaker journal. Not to mention some of the staff's personalities are coming out in their postings on the board.

                    IAAF, USOC, NCAA, and the IOC could all jot down a few notes.
