Should There Be A Book Subforum In Media Center?

Postby DeadpoolsbetterThanU » Sat Feb 04, 2012 9:40 pm

The title says it all. Should there be a book sub forum/forum somewhere on TK? I'm sure there's a fair amount of you who read books (as doubtful as that sounds) and there are hundreds of series, one-offs, or just plain popular books that many people enjoy. Books are a major part of society and media, a lot of things we love wouldn't exist without books. I see that people discuss them quite a lot here so why not discuss them at large? So state you opinion: Should TK make a Book Forum?

Hmm...no.

I say the only reason there would be to make a new subforum would be if there were a lot of threads about books. There are a few book topics, but not many. Not enough to say that books deserve their own subforum.

I'd love more discussion about books, but I'm not convinced many others here read. And of those that do, I have this nagging feeling that it's mostly about wizards and dragons and spaceships and such. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I know you don't mean this the way it reads, but I think it's hilarious anyway.

I'm going to make reference to a board I mod at for an example. We had several people ask for a book forum, and we mostly rejected it because we didn't think traffic would be high. Finally we renovated the entire place and decided to throw in a book board to get people to shut up. Now that we have one, nobody uses it. People just use the same old threads they used before to declare "Hey, I'm reading this book now!" Basically they write down the title and don't even tell us what they think about it.

I imagine it would be much, much worse here. We actually have very vocal readers on our board.

Nah. No book section.

How about an animesub form and a bootleg subforum?

Well in my opinion: If you build it they will come.
We may not necessarily need a book forum, but if one's added people might flock to it.
I'm personally either or.

I read a good bit. But I don't really discuss the books I read.

"I liked it"

"I didn't care for it..."

^that sums up what I would really be saying about books I have read.

That's...nice...?

Still, the comic books that seem to get the most discussion are the Godzilla ones and all of that discussion is going on in the toys subforum right now. And even THAT is going to lessen once KOM ends.


There are a fair amount of comic fans on this board and I feel that, if this board is made, it will generate some good discussion on comics and stuff.

To be fair, you seem to only post in the Toho-specific forums, Mike. I really don't see you post anywhere but there and in the Comment areas.

Well I read comics and different types of novels, I think this would be a good idea.

I voted yes; I would like to be able to go to one place for discussions of comics and books not related to Godzilla.

Voted yes- comic books are books whether you like it or not. And it'd be pointless to make a comics subforum and not make a book subforum anyway.
I am the alienated, the ridiculed, the despised. No need to praise my name. No need to envy my body. I am the shadow under the radiance of heroic spirits. Birthed of the darkness of glorious legend. And so, I hate, I resent. Nourished by the sighs of the people precipitated within the darkness, people that curse the light.

Just post about books in the General Discussion. TK doesnt need all these extra forums and subforums.


It doesn't. Just wait and see. It's going to be one quiet subforum.

Watch, it gets made and you two are the only ones not in it. :P I kid, I kid.
But if you just post books in the general discussion, it would get all cluttered up in there. If there is a sub forum then it'll make it at least a little more organized. Books are a type of media not general. If it worked like that, then why need a Media Center?

I bet if there's a sub forum people WOULD discuss it and make topics.

There have been a few that I remember, but not enough to really warrant an entirely new subforum.

I'm not going to lock this topic, but I will say no. I'm personally in favor of less forums the better. When stuff is combined more into larger forums, more people are exposed. Time is finite, and checking a lot of sub forums can be time consuming.

Separate forums make sense when there is a LOT of conversation, though. I would never group Video Games and the Media Section as Video Games are a popular enough topic to deserve their own forum.

That said, people should know that I'm a stickler on this. I'm already eyeing the Arena and Music forums for their relative lack of posts in contrast to others...
