How about pinning, or sticking or whatever it’s called, the weeks entry list.

Pinning an index thread which itself would hold the links to the entry list, practice results, qualifying results, race results, etc would be much appreciated. Unfortunately its been suggested many times an no effort has been made to make one.

level 1

Hot take but I wish the mods would tee off on some of these idiots on this sub reddit for about a month and get people using their heads.

After every race we have 15 different threads of people giving their take on the race that just happened. As if we don't have a post race discussion thread STICKIED for that very reason. As if their opinion alone warrants more attention than anyone else's. It's just beyond stupid.

I'd just absolutely love it for you guys to drop some week bans on people for a little while for doing moronic shit like that. Just long enough that people get the message then go back to just deleting them like you always have. I feel like if you guys would actually do sort of a cleanse around here for a period of time then let everyone come back and get their heads on straight we could be a better sub.

level 2

Also like to add the posts that ask specifically what happened to driver X postrace when Google can easily answer them.

I feel like we took care of most of those from yesterday...

level 4

Y'all did and I only saw the one asking about McDowell. Btw I didn't bring it up to say mods are lazy, I brought it up so hopefully other users realize how pointless it is making a post for simple Google questions.

You're good. I didn't take it that way.

level 2

I think if we had dedicated highlights posting (like on the F1 sub) we could naturally cut back on a lot of this. Especially when we've got posts/discussions about specific big incidents/battles. If we've got a highlight Streamable video of that posted, then there's a natural place for that discussion beyond the less organized race thread.

I’m still a fan of a weekly post for tips for different tracks (what to do, where to stay, and where to sit). I’ve noticed a lot of those posts and I feel like a thread could be useful.

level 2

Having a track advice thread would be awesome.

We used to have a Weekly Weather & Track Talk Thread but stopped having them because they weren't utilized that much.

JIMMY JAWNSUN

I just wanted to say that the separate post for discussion on the new package yesterday was a great idea. Good job, mods.

level 1

I still think shitty cell phone video of race incidents or celebrations from behind a fence should be banned. The TV cameras do a fantastic job of giving us high definition, stabilized, and audio tuned footage to watch. A 28mm equivalent lens on a tiny sensored phone camera held by a likely drunk or at the least tired fan in the stands provides nothing of value.

In victory lane with them? Awesome. Post it. On pit road and got some good stuff the cameras missed? Post it. Sitting in the grand stands shaking your cellphone from vertical to horizontal to film a burnout? Keep it to yourself. Got some cool zoomed in shots from your 600mm lens on an SLR and the picture shows something better than what tv did? Post it. Got a cell phone pic of Kyle Busch looking like he just ripped a wet fart 500 feet from you? Keep it.

level 2

I really don't see the point of those posts. We get a bunch throughout the weekend and the only comments are "I was there" 20 times. I'd much rather see a stickied "check-in" thread for each weekend.
