    The atmosphere in Cricket Chat - Suggestions & Discussion

    We (as well as many members) are concerned about the current atmosphere within the Cricket Chat forum and we would like to open up this thread to suggestions and ideas on how to improve the Cricket Chat experience for all members.

    Please use this thread for clean discussion of ideas without resorting to abuse and/or finger pointing.

    One suggestion that Agent TBY had was to separate out another subforum for player X vs. player Y discussions.

    I don't know how this will help - but for me the main problem is the same topic spilling into seven or eight threads. If one thread is off the charts in poorness, you can just not check it. When the same horrible discussions are occurring everywhere, it becomes awful. It seems like guerilla warfare at times, read CC and you'll read what we want you to.

    Not noticed it. I have never read every thread, only the ones that have a title that interests me. I dont open the ones Im not interested in. For myself, there is no problem in CC.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there will be edits

    I presume Tendulkar doesn't interest you then, Goughy

    I'm not one for posting in CC a lot, but I read it often enough, and I've noticed that over the last few days it has been seriously bad, almost to a farcical level. But I agree with Corrin, almost every single thread seemed to be Tendulkar vs Someone. Not really sure what can be done about it, but I agree that the whole thing is just dire.

    I think everyone just needs to agree to disagree more often.

    The Tendulkar thing has gone out of hand, but it's just the latest. It's been getting bad for a while now.

    Imho the banning of Aussie has helped considerably. Not just in CC either.

    Yeah, pretty sure CC was **** before Sachin scored 200.


    Though, imagine if Sachin took down Cricinfo and Cricket Chat as well

    Fair to say. I dont have a lot to say on internal Indian matters in general or interest. I dont mind a lot of Tendulkar threads as they are not for me and not something I would read if there was 1 or 30.

    I didn't limit the suggestion to just that. Comparative threads of any sort will always end up going in the same direction, regardless of whether it's Team X v Team Y or any of the "Best" threads, because the same ****s will post the same bull****.

    It won't, obviously, stop all the pro/anti India/Australia crap, but it'll take the stats stuff elsewhere. I mean, it has gone beyond dissecting Cricinfo stats and into dissecting poll stats FFS. Need to draw the line somewhere.
