That's exactly my point. Like...maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but a lot of these "Post your comic under/above # subs" aren't really engaging as ones that do "Post your comic But you have to ___" You're just posting your work and going about your business, and then of course it piles up. Which again -- goes back to me saying "this thread didn't really help anyone. It just buried people" At least with the latter, you're adding something new to the table to start a convo.
I dunno, comics or novels, I kinda rarely post in the updated page thing now -- it just doesn't feel engaging. People post their stuff, and they go. At least with the "Post your latest drawings", you get people stopping to look at other works and comment. It's like a gallery.
But overall, as my preference, I just don't like things to be clogged up. Like, if I see several threads with the same topic in a row that's burying everything else -- yeah, I'm gonna get a bit annoyed. Like "I get it, you're joking about the number of threads that do the sub count thing. I don't need 12 threads to get it".
