Lightbulb Mail Days/Show off threads in the Hobby Talk section

Would it be possible to keep the mail day/pick-ups/show off threads in the main hobby talk sections? I noticed my two recent mail threads got moved while others have not. What do you think, Fish? I mean, after a few days, they are off the front pages anyhow. Can't we just keep them here?

I, for one, like to show off my cards in each section, not one that has everything combined. Not only that, but these main sections get much more traffic than the Gallery. I also seem to go out of my way to view a gallery and since I am usually not interested in hockey or baseball, I have to weed though those threads.

What do you guys think? It isn't like posting mail is off topic or anything... it is a hobby discussion.

I don't mind unless the person is making multiple threads about the same card.

I think anything at all involving football should be allowed, mail days included. I love looking at mail days in here and it seems like it hasn't been a problem until

Keep it in the hobby talk, no one seems to view the gallery and it's better to keep it separated by sports

Hobby section I actually enjoy looking at the mailday threads even though 99.9% of them suck, still a fun l@@k!

Think things work better when they are in the right spot - ie this isn't a football hobby question its a Suggestion thread - no?

I have no issues one way or the other - however given there is a mail day section things should be posted there which is why things were moved.

The problem is, there is no consistency and it makes more work for you guys to have to move every thread that shows up in the hobby section. I see mail threads from yesterday that weren't moved over, yet some were.

Can't you just call the other section Gallery or Collection? I really think that the mail days are fun to read and see... and it is more of a cluster to have all the sports together. There are a ton of people who don't care about the other sports.

I also didn't know there was a suggestion box...

Going to try in the next month and phase out the Gallery area (I'll try within the next month to get every thread in the Gallery area moved to the correct hobby subforum - so from this point forward feel free to post your Collection and/or Maildays in the hobby specific area.

basketball folks 1-Mods 0

I guess scrolling down a few more inches was just that much harder to do than I expected.

oh well, let the good times roll!

This would have easily solved the problem IMO:

Quick Links
-Edit Options
-THE LONG SCROLL to the bottom where you can highlight what sections of blowout you can block when searching by new posts (Exclude Forums from "Get New Posts")

you only have to do it once and not each time you log in. if you are offline, then it won't work that way.

I'm sorry, I'd love to respond to this more, but I am exhausted from scrolling down an additional 6 inches to see a forum lower down the page. I'll be right back, I'm going to go grab a 5 hour energy.

I think basketball maildays should stay in the basketball hobby section.....Hope this gets changed soon.
