I have a question. Which would be easier for the MODS, moving posts from another thread or deleting comments people may post who don't understand the rules of the thread?

I am confused now on what to do. It would be nice to just go to the thread and post your own story. But I wonder how often the mods would have to go in and clean out comments. With a closed thread we would have to PM the MODS to get our stories posted, but the thread would always look clean. Decisions decisions.

Either way, the MODS have their work cut out for them. But I truly love this idea!

In the spirit of the inspiration, how about calling it "amor por los muertos".

I vote closed, not everyone always leaves nice comments



Love is patient, love is kind.
Love never gives up or loses faith.
Love is always hopeful and endures through every trial.

(Option 2) If this were an open thread there would not be any comments as they would be removed, just stories only...............

In terms of the Mods requirements (for Option 1) just to let you all know a closed thread would actually require us to merge a thread you created into the one FeatherRiverSams would create. This can be done but we will have to watch we do not merge the wrong way as this could not be undone......

To all, just an FYI about the poll........... It will close on 11-14-2013 at 03:58 PM

I think this is a great idea.
I would like to point out, though, that even the "closed" option may leave comments that need to be deleted by a MOD. If a member makes a memorial post somewhere (perhaps in the RB section) and PMs one of us to merge it into the sticky thread, others may post comments to that memorial before a MOD has a chance to move it. If we simply move the memorial post, that leaves orphaned comments which would need to be deleted.

I'm in favor of leaving this thread open for several reasons.

I think each member would like to post their own tribute to their dog. If you contact a Mod to post it for you through a PM, the tribute will look like a post from the Mod and not the member.

If a Mod merges the original post into the closed thread, there is the possibility of it being put into the wrong thread, which can not be undone.

Tobysmommy also pointed out, that any comments in a thread that was originally posted in the Rainbow Bridge Section, would have to be edited out.

If comments are made in this new Sticky thread, I feel it would be much easier to remove them by leaving this thread Open so members can post their dog's tribute themselves.

I like the open thread idea, where people can post the tributes of their special goldens freely. Merging can be tricky at times especially if it cannot be undone.

I voted closed. Comments are wonderful, but I'm afraid I will miss a lot of posts as comments can make it hard for me to sift through a thread if I am busy.

This may be a lot to ask (it is easy to have ideas and ask others to implement them), but is there a way to have comments to specific posts so that they are nested? That would be cool, all the tributes could be the main posts and then comments below each post for those that want to carry on a conversation. The posts would be closed and comments open. A lot of blogs work this way, and sometimes even facebook comments do this nesting.
