Hey guys, I would like to address the issue over the “Guess the…” threads. Please don’t hate me or suspend me, I’m just trying to say what needs to be said.
Now, why were the “Guess the…” threads discontinued?
I hate to be blunt, but that’s just not true. Yes, there have been over 70,000 posts, but over 95% of those were people guessing, responses to guesses, and requesting and giving hints. We are VERY FAR from reaching the “maximum number of combinations possible.”
Also, the “Guess the…” threads are very popular. Guess the Airline and Aircraft reached EIGHT parts before it was shut down (far more than any other thread in IFC history), and it was showing NO signs of slowing down. It had an average of 500+ posts PER DAY.
Not only that, we were having a GREAT time and I made several friends through it. I feel as if the moderators were not looking out for the general good of the community on this one (Not intentionally, of course). And while they make IFC a great place, I honestly have not had much fun here since the closing of “Guess the…” threads. After all, that is the point of the community: to enjoy the company of other like minded aviation enthusiasts.
There. I said it.
