I think the point of contention is that everyone seemed to be happy with how the original thread had progressed, besides yourself (seemed, I'm sure there were others, but the majority were happy). Maybe the original intention of the the thread had changed course somewhat in the many years it had been running, but thats the nature of most threads. To it and its users credit it didn't exactly veer horrifically off topic, things were posted up, things were discussed, praised, commented on, etc. I, like many, saw it not just as a place to share and comment, but also a way of removing the thousands of new threads that used to pop up where someone wanted to show their bulldozer model, claim it to be the next big mod, and disappear into the sunset. The thread kept things in one place.
I'm not entirely sure how one thread being split into two/three threads reduces any burden, other than that they're horribly offputting. One seems better at place in the editing section along with all the other modeling related questions, and the other doesn't allow you to comment/discuss? If the intention is to force people to start a new thread every time they want to discuss something they made without it coming under the rules set forth by the developer workshop thread, doesn't this counter the notion of reducing burden and post count? The post reduction is down to people being put off even bothering with those threads, especially given the current climate of dictation. Allow people to comment in the up and coming thread, let them get praise, feedback, suggestions without needing to create an entirely new, potentially pointless topic.
One serious development thread, one casual discussion thread.
appoligies, it seems that intention is there, so ignore a swathe of that post, but I'm struggling to locate the up and comming thread twin?
ah, found it lurking towards the bottom. I would have expected it to be stickied and easier to locate so people could natter about the stuff posted? Would it be beyond the realms of possibility to have to stickied and located below the no discussion thread? At present it risks dropping off the front page and becoming lost.

And here is post 3 in the same thread.
How can I make 3 posts in a row and have them appear as 3 posts?
There is a certain time limit on when the software considers it added material and a new post. I'm not sure what that time limit is.
I often access the forums from my iPhone and I note that forum navigation is rather clunky, most times it seems to be simply easier to use my browser's bookmark and start navigating "from the top".
Moreover, from the mobile version of the forum there seems to be no method of editing your posts.
