It’s just a simple logic at the end of it.
If everyone who posts a thread does likewise, those who only want to look up their tipsters’ picks will get motion sickness just by going through the live score updates while searching for the picks in those threads. At the respective forum home page itself, the threads will be shuffling up and down like a deck of cards.
What is the primary aim of the main forums here?
Sharing picks or providing live score service & or commentaries?
Do we post the picks for ourselves or for others ?
What do our picks do for AB?
I usually have many picks on an English thread with matches kicking off simultaneously at 11pm on a Saturday night. I’m not alone in this regard as well. If we go Newcastle 1, Brighton 1, Stoke 2, etc etc. along with the running commentaries, Liverpool down to 10 men, etc etc for each match, firstly even 100 pages allocated per thread may not be enough if the actions heat up. More importantly, the threads of those poor souls who don’t update the scores will get pushed back to page 2 or 3. I’m sure no tipster will like to see his thread pushed back to page 2 then 3 within minutes of posting.
If you enjoy a party-like atmosphere, counting the goals and cheering your teams on with like-minded people, by all means do so at the Gossip Corner. There’s already a regular group of GC bros doing that there. Keep the main forums tidy just for the posting of picks.
Quality of picks is what this forum is after in order to boost its reputation, not running commentaries or livescore updates. Do running commentaries improve the accuracy of your picks? If they do, I’ll be the first to propose to webmaster to implement that as part and parcel of every thread. It’ll be a win-win situation for AB and our own pockets.
If you love & enjoy the forum, before asking, ‘What’s wrong? How come I can’t do this?’ first ask the question, ‘What if everyone does this?’ You may perhaps see the answer before you even ask your intended question.
Ultimately, regardless of well I can explain, if one only has his self-interest at heart, he’ll never see the light of it all.
