Yes, I KNOW there's already a forum with the misleading name "Announcements (Altcoins)", but that one is mainly used for discussing announcements of altcoins, e.g. I'm pretty sure the 36068 postings about Darkcoin do not ALL have announcing content.

Have 20 of those high-traffic-announcement threads and _real_ announcements will never show up anywhere near page one.

My proposal, open for discussion of course, would be:

  • Announcements (Altcoins): only ONE posting per thread, no follow-ups allowed, with a moderator who closely watches abuse.
  • Announcements (Discussion): renamed version of  the currently existing one.

Thoughts?

That's what the top level alt currencies forum is for, general discussion of altcoins.

Actually that was my very first thought, but I don't know if the forum software offers a comfortable way to move all those millions of existing threads there. Doing it "by hand" would be a tedious job.

But the important point of course would be to disable follow-ups in the original forum.
