Cakey has set up a new Red Sox discussion board -- Threadsox -- as an offshoot of Joy of Sox.
Part of his reasoning for it was that in the comments of some posts, we often have several different discussions going on (sometimes on a topic I haven't even posted about) and a message board could be better for organizing the many topics during a season. Also, JoS discussions tend to end after a day or two as the post gets pushed down the page; if you haven't bookmarked it (and why would you, really?), it becomes a pain to scroll down and find it again. Any post on a board would bump the thread to the top of the folder and everyone would see the discussion was ongoing.
I'm conflicted over Cakey's board. It looks great and has potential (Sunday's game thread was fun), but I also really like the game threads here. All last season I wished I had them and I'm happy they've grown over the last few months. But is Threadsox a worthwhile addition to our little community or is it a distraction?
I've set up a poll on the right-hand side of the blog. Please vote (once!) and add any comments here (perhaps I missed a possible option), if you like.
