    Good idea re this thread, and thanks for all your thoughts.

    Judging by the poll results, it's save to say this will definately continue in future.

I don't see the whole cluttering up of the board as much of an argument really, and it's just annoying to have an extra forum to check through..
    Even though I voted success, I tend to agree with that post, somewhat.

    Ha, Ive just noticed my vote in the poll is for failure. I could have sworn I voted the other way. At least I thought I did.

    Count mine as a vote for success with the comments made in my previous post.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    I'd hope it doesn't happen too often. There won't be many series that generate this much interest, after all.

    Although I'm new here I'd say it has worked well.

    Definitely a success on the whole. At times it was annoying to go into a separate subforum simply to cover all of the ongoing cricket, but this concept prevented CC from being clogged up. Furthermore, it organized posts successfully and made sure no one got lost in a sea of posts in a single Ashes thread. The idea to split up the five tests was good in some ways (well organized posts) but it wasn't exactly a resounding success.

    Of course it was a success. I didn't clog up Cricket Chat and look how many threads we've had in here....

    Definitely a good thing. My only gripe is that the most recently used threads didn't appear on the homepage of CW though, so I had to click a few extra times to find the Ashes stuff. Being terminally lazy, this was an issue for me.

    THIS I think is the crux of the issue, a reason *Official* threads are not for me whilst a series is in progress, because things just go too fast. That's why I'd love it if we could have a subforum for every major series (you know what I mean - those involving teams where we have a wealth of membership of followers amongst the posters here), even though I realise that'd be totally impractical.

    I think the situation would have been fascinating if we could only have thought of the concept prior to 2005. Because the truth of the matter is that there would be all sorts of threads in addition to the posts in the *Official* series thread in a sub-forum for said series.

    One thing I'd suggest - I'm sure I'm not the first - would it not be better to have -insert series- forum as a CC-internal subforum rather than a CC-external subforum (I'll expand on that if no-one's got a clue what I mean there)

    EDIT: aha, Pete's just said the same thing in the post below the one I just quoted from...

    Yeah I agree, that'd be the best option imo.
