Ok, I initially had some projects and ideas that coincidentally were initiated around the same time - and after that I followed up by posting what was on my mind late at night on random stuff, since at the time it seems like a good idea
I can tell it became annoying very fast to some, but others seemed to have enjoyed the threads

If it's not harmful/pointless discussion, should it be alright to post?
I mean, if you don't like what you see, don't reply to the thread right?
However, same can be said to making the initial thread in the first place - stop posting generic discussions lmao

Idk I don't mind either way, I'm not trying to divide the community lol or am I?

opinions?

Sometimes, when certain things become self-aware, they need to be incinerated. Like printers, old stuff from the fridge and shitposters.

The issue isn't really what you posted, the issue is posting a large amount of them in a short amount of time. Normally on page 1 there's an assortment of content such as discussions like yours, match announcements, official and unofficial news, and dumbasses being dumbasses. When there's three or four rahThreads on the front page, that kinda messes up the balance, and by the third or fourth it was just people memeing instead of answering the question anyways so it's not even useful to ask them.

I don't think the TFTV gestapo is gonna come to knock on your door or anything but if you want actual useful answers wait a week or two between each question or smth

Guess this might seem like an unpopular opinion but I didn't mind the RahThreads at all. They mostly only got bumped incessantly either from genuine discussion or bc of people complaining that they were there. It seems like more of a meme that people have coalesced an opinion on rather than an actual problem.

The "flaws of 6s" thread became a pretty good conversation that lasted 3 pages of mostly healthy discussion. The "favorite tf2 player quotes" thread became a pretty good megathread/dumping ground for often funny or forgotten quotes and moments from tf2 history. The "how did you get into tf2" thread was kind of useless discussion-wise but was still a good outlet for people to talk about themselves.

There's not enough posts on this site overall for it to become spammy even if the posts were shit. I log in every few days and could easily see all the new threads in the first page, so I don't really see the big problem. It especially seems weird when there's site moderators in this thread telling u to stop making content for their forum.

Of course they could definitely be spaced out a little bit more just to give each thread a little breathing room, so as not to dilute or derail discussions, but I'd rather have daily RahThreads than the fucking barren wasteland that I first came back to last year.

There is absolutely no sense in shitting on you for these threads, more often than not people actually replied to the topic, whether seriously engaging with the subject or just making jokes, either is good honestly. Even if the topic turns out kinda junk it's still fun and I enjoy reading them anyway. It's not like there would otherwise have been a "better" thread made and you used up a slot or something. There's something to be said for the "throw shit at the wall and see what sticks" approach to making threads. Generic discussion with low focus is fun and makes this place more of a community and less of a hub for witch hunts.
Also I liked your noodle video, got me using more ginger in my cooking :)

It's funny that these people who seemingly 'hate' the rahThreads - keep pumping the threads by commenting on them lol!

Also, what is going on in your pathetic, god complex of a reddit-mod wannabe lives that you get triggered by a thread? It's not like the 'shitpost' is going to bury your own revolutionary, Emmy winning, Mark Twain sucking thread that gets posted on TFTV.

I am Heavy Weapons Guy... and this is my weapon. She weighs one hundred fifty kilograms and fires two hundred dollar, custom-tooled cartridges at ten thousand rounds per minute. It costs four hundred thousand dollars to fire this weapon...for twelve seconds. Oh my God, who touched Sasha? Alright...Who touched my gun!? Some people think they can outsmart me. Maybe, maybe. I've yet to meet one that can outsmart bullet. Waaaaahhhhh! Uwaaaaaaah! Ahahahahaha! Cry some more! Heheh. Cry some more.

I like them. The forums are relatively inactive, so I have no idea why people get made about it. Maybe have "rT" at the start of the titles so the upset folks know not to click on them? I like a good tf2 discussion prompt ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Based on feedback, daily is a little too much for many people
How about 3 per week, evenly spaced out
Something like Monday, Wednesday, Friday

RahThreads are good, not like there's much of anything better that they take the place of.
