I'm as guilty as anyone else, but there has been a growing trend were we keep a singly thread going forever.  Inside most threads there are now many topics that could easily be spun off into their topics. Still others have thread drift that goes on for pages, that could easily be linked to a new thread.

Again, I'm as bad as you, but though if I posted something about it maybe we can start new threads more often instead of going on to page 50.

Singly threads that cover a range of topics are just more fun...!

I tried starting a new topic in the "Events Around Town" category about a Downtown Tulsa Walkability presentation, but "Moderator" soon intervened and began editing the thread without any clear explanation. 

A few days ago, Townsend started the "This Forum is Depressing" topic.  I don't agree with Townsend's opinion about this Forum being depressing, but it's a new topic, as you suggested in your initial "More topics please..." post on this thread.

There are many topics that could be discussed here, but in the case of the one I started recently about walkability expert Jeff Speck's presentation, it's frustrating to me to have a moderator begin editing on Page 1 of the thread -- before the discussion even has a chance to begin, really.

BTW, cannon_fodder, I see that you posted a reply to that particular walkability presentation thread today.  Thanks!  But I had already posted a link to feedbacktulsa.org on March 23, 2017, shortly after the conclusion of author and city planner Jeff Speck's presentation, and a few hours before a moderator jumped in and found the need to start editing my posts, for some reason.

So, anyway, cannon_fodder, thanks for re-posting a link today that I had already posted on the same first page of the same thread more than four days before your post.  Redundancy and repetition can be good things.

Yes, yes, redundancy and repetition can be good, good things.

Perhaps someone should start yet more new topics -- one or two new topics about redundancy, and one or two new topics about repetition.

I posted a link to the feedback because the presentation itself was posted and the feedback went live.

But you do it so well - we have all come to depend on you!
