The standard opening:
What stuff should we watch, read, play?
1.Feel free to respond here in-thread to another link posted.
a. If you're looking to start a conversation, perhaps take your comment and create a new thread with it in the Stuff to Watch category.
b.Otherwise, to prevent too many comments in the thread, number your response (first response: ; second response ; third response ). If you see that you're the second person to post, "Wow, that looks cool!" to a post here, then put a "" at the top of your post. Three posts () is the limit: The fourth person to post should just take their comment and create a new thread, to carry the discussion over there further.
Because these threads are great: We can link to little things being talked about on the web in general, on blogs, or other forums that might be noteworthy, without having to dedicate a new thread to each and every one (although that, too, is fine if you want to discuss the item further or "open up a discussion").
Responding to these posts with a comment or two is understandable (other times there might be no comments, just cause the link was self-explanatory: nothing to say, lots of heads nodding in agreement). But we don't want to create a huge discussion in the middle of the thread: Some folks get a lot out of these threads, and don't want to look back to see the "10 latest posts" just to see that it's a heated discussion of something from a previous page. Cool? Cool.
