    T20 forum

    I think because of the growing importance of T20 both to the financial future of the game and attracting a new breed of fan to the game that T20 should get its own sub-forum.

    Threads like this The Best T20 Batsmen - Vote would be encouraged and peeps could also make multiple IPL threads (something which has been frowned upon in the past).

    This I think is the best solution,

    What say you James.

    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    We try to keep all the discussion within CC together as much as possible. T20 doesn't dominate that part of the forum so much that it'd require its own section, so doubt that we'll see it.

    It doesn't dominate right now because threads get merged into other threads. Plus I suspect there are some frustrated T20 posters out there who are just busting to make a 20 20 drafts and 20 20 comparison threads. You would get frowned on in CC for starting threads like that.

    Would you like to see 7 or 8 T20 threads popping up in CC?

    OR would you not care either way.

    wouldn't bother me. like the blackcaps thread, atg game thread and a few others just don't look as it doesn't interest me. But as a forum I think it's excellent each niche can have a thread and those with an interest can find someone to talk to about it. Just because I don't care much about t20 or at all doesn't make it less relevant

    Well it hasn't happened yet, so what makes you so certain it will do?!

    I don't care either way, but I can't believe how far you've missed the point Hurricane is trying to make.

    At the moment it is discouraged to make multiple threads on the one topic (that topic being t20). By creating a subforum he thinks it would promote discussion and encourage people to make multiple threads.

    Honestly can't see how you can't understand that.

    Oh yes, because every time a T20 thread has been started it's been closed/merged. Oh wait, no it hasn't because there just isn't that much interest in the format so there's not been many threads started. It's hardly rocket science.

    Look, the question has been answered, that'll do for the thread rather than arguing over semantics.
