    I?m going on a Crusade. Every title in the Amphitheatre forum that has ?Appreciation? in the name is getting edited to say ?Discussion.?

    I don?t have a problem with people starting threads on individual topics. A Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings thread is fine. I don?t even have a problem if in their depths, guitar or movie or whatever threads happen to have people just straight off listing what their favorite guitarists or directors are, or giving inventories of their equipment or whatever. What I don?t want is a person starting threads that are intended to be fan clubs, or just intended to provide lists of personal preferences.

    Threads should be discussion based. That means that differing views are allowed and encouraged. If you don?t like Harry Potter or you don?t like Lord of the Rings, feel free to go into their threads and say exactly why you don?t like them. If I can ever force myself to finish rereading HPATPS, I?m going to be posting a very long and negative critique of the book into that thread myself.

    In the JCC or EUM, if people go into a fan club with differing views and are vocal about them, they?re potentially trolling. Not in the Amphitheatre. In the Amphitheatre, they?re only potentially trolling if they don?t back up their opinion.

    Up. Let's see some more discussion, folks, and less listing of favorites.

    we don't need to up this anymore considering that there is a banner with the inportant threads on it.

    Still, newer users of the forum often overlook the threads listed at the top.

    I'd like to see the Amphitheatre at 10,000 posts by Thursday. Make it so!
