I imagine many, if not all, of the staff are against this suggestion, but please hear me out. I'm pretty sure everybody agrees that the current thread sucks. Both because of flaming (I will accept my share of the blame for that) and because half the posts are about retarded topics. I believe that separate nakama threads would allow people to ignore the retarded stuff and as a result vastly cut down on the amount of flaming. The reason people flame so much in the current thread is not simply because they believe that somebody is wrong, but because the wrongness is right in front of them and it frustrates them to see it. Sure they can put the put the person/ people spreading the idea on their ignore list, but they can not put everybody in the thread who replies to them on their ignore list. If the theories are in a separate thread, they are able to just ignore the thread entirely. Personally speaking I was sick of the Perona debate long before it ended. I kept coming back to it because it was in the same place as something I actually wanted to discuss.
I don't believe I'm the only one who has thought that some people in the nakama thread are trolls. But it can't be proven, they may just be really stupid and therefore we can't force them out. However, we can force them to place their stupidity in their own dark corner.
What I suggest is one thread for each of the popular theories, and one thread (the current one) for the less popular theories. As of right now I think the only 2 popular theories are Jinbe and Caribou. If another theory becomes dominant in the general thread it could be given it's own thread.
Don't kill me please.
