    Ashes sub-forum - a success?

    Yes imo. It didn't clutter CC with heaps of threads and gave people the opportunity to discuss what they want without the fear of annoying all the non Aussie and English fans.

    Although I would have preferred the official matches to be in one thread and not 5. I don't think that aspect worked particularly well for various reasons.

    Thoughts?

    Lol, yes spot on. Seperating the matches into threads was too much, particularly before the series started where people were talking about specific matches such as the Perth test and what not before the Gabba test had even taken place.

    But the sub-forum in itself was good.

    There were more posts last year tho. 15,948 vs 14,949.

    Probably due to the excitement of last year's series.

    I'm fairly indifferent, but overall I think I preferred it last year. There was more activity in just one thread than this entire forum, and that was for a series with less hype and so on. I think less people got involved with the discussions than they would have otherwise.

    I think subforums are a good idea for large scale tournaments like the CT and the World Cup, but for bilateral series I'd stick to the official thread.

    Although there's not likely to be another such eagerly anticipated bilateral series for the forseeable future, so its not really likely James would bother setting up a separate forum again, you'd feel.

    That's actually a decent point. This series probably demanded a sub-forum because of the overwhelming hype, and whilst I may be incorrect and correct me if I'm wrong when 08 and 09 comes around, but the next Ashes should be less of a victim of the hype machine.

    The 2005 Ashes thread was really cool though.

    Yes, yes it was, when I read through it I wanted to reply to lots of stuff but resisted the urge to dig. Turns out it's been dug now anyhow, I would imagine people will be quoting all sorts, such as yourself with that Scaly/Eddie exchange.
