Possible Yew Grove length solution

For the longest time people have been waiting for the longest time for this page to completely load. And when there is a particularly active discussion, it takes even longer. Taking somewhat of a page from Wikipedia but with our own twist, why don't we make the opening topic of every discussion a link to a page where the discussion shall take place? That way, this page will load much faster as only the title and opening post will be posted on the main Yew Grove page, allowing people to know exactly what the discussion is about (as opposed to only providing a title link) and they won't have to wade through a wall of text to find their discussion. Thoughts?--Diberville 03:57, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Keeping track of multiple pages can be a hassle, currently it's a one-stop-shop deal where one can simply add the Yew Grove to their watchlist to be notified of anything added to discussions. Moving to a system like this would mean editors would not only have to watch the Yew Grove, but any subsequent discussion pages that appear. If you could come up with a system that would make it less painful in such a regard, I would gladly support it. -Byte_Master bytesig2.png bytesig3.png 04:14, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

Diber has a point, I check the yew grove daily. But with a topic system, changes to this page would be made as new discussions happen, so people who have it on their watchlist will still be updated. Besides, adding and removing pages from your watchlist is not a big deal when it comes to over half the community not being able to access the main discussion page. I like it.

A similar idea has been suggested by Sannse, that we use the wiki-style Forum: namespace for discussions, which I support. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 13:29, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

The use of wiki-style forums would provide exactly the same thing except no maintenance and would automatically update. I am trying to get an example going on my website, but I have a few other things I have to do before I can do that. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 03:25, 8 March 2009 (UTC)

I move that this thread be marked resolved and archived as the new forum solves this concern. Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 20:14, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
