But new articles should be made more prominent, instead of just a thread started with a link to the article and a truncated 200 words or something from the article itself. If Daullaz is submitting an article why not just have him create and sticky a thread? It would foster more discussion. Something as simple as having the entire article in the threads that are as of now posted by the WebHamster would go a long way to helping. They could be archived in the articles section as well for posterity. It's clear that everybody spends their time in the Leftovers forum discussing things so to redirect people to a separate, clunky part of the forum to discuss articles makes no sense.
And like others have said, relevant sub-forums for things that people actually talk about would help. For the most part they exist, but they get lost in all the other subforums. I know the daily cheering/venting has been working OK (thanks to those that put in the work on them, it is much appreciated). But again, if they were stickied and maybe had more structure for who is to create them then it might work even better. Maybe a different person each day is assigned to it, and if they can't do it they can ask somebody else, or other people can request to start contributing some. This isn't a major gripe because it's worked pretty well. But if you know for instance that you always do the CV thread on Wednesdays then you can prepare something more indepth than doing it in the spur of the moment when you get home from work on Wednesday afternoon.
