    IPL Sub-forum

    I think the IPL should have a sub-forum.

    I realise it's not everyone's cup of tea, but at the end of the day it is a long tournament involving many international players. There is a lot to discuss with the event, which IMO is too big for a single thread.

    Other events that aren't even cricket related get their own forum (and rightfully so, due to their scale and interest), so I think it's fair enough if the IPL gets one.

    Finally, if the bloody Cricket Web Forumer World Cup, which never even took place, gets a sub-forum, the IPL should.

    Should every match have its own thread though? No IMO.

    Every other form of cricket > IPL

    If IPL deserves its own subforum, so does county cricket and Sheffield Shield at least.

    If the quantity of posts in the Sheffield Shield deserves its own sub-forum, then fair enough. But I don't see how the decision to make a sub-forum should be determined by the fact that some people don't like T20 or franchise cricket. It should be determined by interest and quantity of posts, not subjective tastes.

    No, but is that the criteria for a sub-forum?

    Team discussion (there are now 10), discussion about trades and individual player performances etc.

    This is a cricket forum. If other sport tournaments get a sub-forum, and honestly, if a simming game that never occured, gets its own forum, a cricket tournament involving the biggest names in the world and results in a lot of discussion, both for and against due to its controversial nature, deserves one.

    Regardless of quality, the IPL will be popular and there will be a lot of discussion about.
    It's also viewable whereas County Cricket and the Sheffield Shield are.

    I'm in favour of the subforum, one thread in Cricket Chat isn't enough IMO and a subforum would prevent Cricket Chat being clogged up and annoying people like Heef

    I'd say have one inside CC like the predictions league

    I'd keep up with the IPL more if there were multiple threads and I'm sure I'm not the only one

    Honestly, with the size of the forum now I think we are outgrowing tour threads. Need subforums for more major events, not just the Ashes and global tournaments. IMHO of course.

    Anything that generates more discussion is surely a good thing?

    Yes the fact that every match can be watched in most countries is another factor. Good point Marcus.

    Yep. I'd imagine a sub-forum of India's tour of England will occur.

    Harping back to the epic disaster that is the Forumers Cricket World Cup without slagging off Cribb is hardly going to earn you my support.

    I think subforums are overused as it is, personally. Less subforums, less Jono.

    Thanks for the idea and the feedback everyone.

    I tend to agree with the sub-forum, but I'll see what other people think before putting it in place.
