Why thank you ^.^ locked the old one!


Why is this not ritualistically done in favor of just wiping the newly born thread off the map? I understand there's a strict "no duplicate" rule, but it seems less pretentious to allow the new thread (written by someone who will probably be attentive to it) to survive and lock/delete the old as opposed to deleting the new one and then confusing the hell out of everyone who has already posted in it thus far who are looking for discussion? A thread that has fallen hundreds of pages back is a dead thread, original or not.

In any case...favorite anime couple definitely comes down to two different pairings, one for cutness, and the other for hilariousness.

Usually when the old gets locked instead of the new it's because there hasn't been much recent activity in the old one, or the new one was launched in such a way that it's already generating a higher quality of content than the old one. That doesn't seem to have been the case here, so I don't know why it was done that way (as I'm likely to have been the one who reported this, I can say that I also expected the new one to be the one deleted.)

The reason, I think, for not always deleting an older thread with recent activity in favor of a brand new one is to avoid a lot of small separate threads on the same topic. By encouraging people to use the current thread instead of creating a new one, you encourage an ongoing conversation in one thread, and also a better resource for people who are looking for that information--instead of having to read a bunch of threads with just a few posts each (most of which are in the closed section and thus harder to find), they have one big thread to wander through. I've found it pretty fun to look at some of those which have remained active over a long period of time--going back to early posts started a few years ago, and seeing what people said then, and then looking at the recent posts in the thread--what's the same? what's different? It's all there in one place.

The reason, I think, for not always deleting a recent old one in favor of a recent new one is to avoid a lot of small separate threads on the same topic. By encouraging people to use the current thread instead of creating a new one, you encourage an ongoing conversation in on thread, and also a better resource for people who are looking for that information--instead of having to read a bunch of threads with just a few posts each (most of which are in the closed section and thus harder to find), they have one big thread to wander through. I've found it pretty fun to look at some of those which have remained active over a long period of time--going back to early posts started a few years ago, and seeing what people said then, and then looking at the recent posts in the thread--what's the same? what's different? It's all there in one place.


I'm curious of this however...because usually a thread dies because the conversation has concluded or nobody is interested any longer. A new thread usually generates new interest. Even if the mods were so kind as to flop the old thread back on to the front page for everyone who gets their post deleted, people generally ignore threads full of posts that are outdated or full of irrelevant information and opinions of people in the past. It's just a common forum mindset.

On many forums (I'd actually say it's a regularity) it's a strict rule to not revive old threads for exactly this reason, which lends credence to people having this mindset...yet CR promotes it. This is commonly referred to as "necro"-ing.

Cheers to CR for trying to be different in this regard but I just don't get why it's a "total nightmare" (taken from mod post in music section). I guess I'm venting frustration with having a post deleted that I put time and effort in to writing, when the existing post had an obscure name, and my post wasn't even at least pasted in to the old one, nor was I given a link to the old one. You can understand how that might be frustrating, right?

Another couple I adore...

Sorry if you saw the many repeats of this post--technical problem; well actually me getting insufficient feedback after pressing the Post button, so it looked like I hadn't posted so I just kept pressing Post. Dumb, I know. I've now deleted them.

On topic:

This couple (of friends) is one of my favorites:



I like the complex relationship between the two Nanas.

Off-topic to zipzo:

If you have more questions and concerns like this, I'd suggest PMing a mod, rather than continuing in thread. There's a list of them at: http://www.crunchyroll.com/staff (Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see them.)

Hi zipzo ^.^ thanks for your concern. I totally feel where your your coming from. If my thread was closed down I would want to vent it all out as well. But, alas there is a reason for everything and I will do my best to explain why this thread was kept open and the other closed down.


However, generally this is not the thread for it. This thread is for "Favorite anime couples" and this is a totally different conversation. Please next time post in the general help/feedback area of PM one of the mods we don't bite so that we don't derail the current thread.



Off topic (since this is a special case) however, in regards to closing of the old thread in favor of the new one. Currently if it's a recent similar duplicate we now strictly close the new ones since we maintain threads only up to 5-6 months.

Now this is where it get's tricky:

We received a lot of complaints that were so many old threads that when there was a duplicate we would close the new one but the old thread hasn't been posted in for years; literally years some haven't been posted in since 2008. This was a problem. Some mods thought that; to fix this problem, it would be better to close the older threads in favor of the newer threads to keep the conversation going. There was a push to keep all the newer threads. However, we did not really define this: what new threads we should keep and when should we lock the old one. We found that keeping the newer topics didn't work because some topics would appear numerous times and it would be better just keeping one and closing all the others. We then informally decided to close all threads 5-6 months and older to avoid people complaining that the thread they started had a duplicate topic from 2006 that hasn't not been posted on. So, it made more sense to continue how we did in the past strictly locking the new one. Actually, it's been pretty recent for us on CR to delete posts 6 months and older. Before we kept every post literally had thousands and thousands more of posts in each category. Each page has 30 posts and the general section had over 2,000 pages. Now CR doesn't have a close all thread function and we literally had to go into each thread and lock them ourselves. So you can imagine the topic would get the same topics many, many times that we didn't initially catch and what a nightmare it was to close all those old threads one by one.

So, what I can do for you is to keep up consistency. I will close this thread and re-open the old one. I apologize for the inconvenience. If you find any more inconsistencies please don't not hesitate to contact any of the moderators, or PM me directly.


I want to thank lorreen as usual for helping out ^.^ You deserve some brownie points (I sense something really good for you in the near future )
