Just posting number is just fine if you care to keep count for some reason. (Not really sure why actually other than "my collection is bigger than yours".)
But this issues is that if someone comes to the site and wants information on a given movie title and they enter it into a search, that title is that found X number of times in this thread alone and thus not really giving any real help to the person when they find 60 posts with the movie in it that is just part of someones list.
As the list continued to grow, we received more e-mail about it. Up until now we had not done anything for, well, you guy were just having some fun. But not that we were asked to help moderate the thread removing posts that are not welcomed, well, it came time to make mentioned. It would just get worse as it continued as you know for more and more titles are released all the time.
THIS IS NOT AN HD DVD vs BLU-RAY THING. DO NOT EVEN GO THAT DIRECTION.
To me, I really actually do not see the use of such a thread for what does it really help with or do? But maybe that is just me. I mean, their are sites that you can keep your collection on. AVS is not really here for that if that was the intent.
Oh..."why not just let the mods delete the movie listings and leave the stats summary" Because it would take a great deal of time to edit all the posts to remove the titles. I really do not think all the people are still active in the thread that would then come back end edit out their titles from their posts. If so, GREAT, keep the numbers. But I do not see that as actually going to happen. Try it...Edit the first post asking people to remove the titles and just keep the number. Again, not sure to what end the thread is for.
