Requests for a Tech Board appear to have surpassed requests for a Music Board...



For the past year, it has been empirically demonstrated that Tech threads are quite prevalent not only on the OT, but throughout the entirety of the site. Whether it's an HDTV thread on the Movies/TV board, or another smartphone discussion on the OT, tech related topics clearly seem to be a popular (and increasingly relevant) subject of conversation. The need for such a board has been repeatedly evangelized, as the board would not only host and unify the plurality of tech threads, but would also have dualistic functionality in that it would be an ideal place to receive informative support for tech related issues.

However, I recently noticed that over the years, the amount of thread requests for a tech board has rivaled (or slightly surpassed) the total amount of requests for a music board...

(Note - If you find a thread for either category that isn't listed, post the link so the data can be properly updated.)

re: Requests for a Tech Board appear to have surpassed requests for a Music Board...


It appears that the thread requests for a tech board have achieved quantitative parity, or have even slightly exceeded, the amount of requests for a music board. Granted, requests for a music board ceased approximately 1.5 years ago after it actually opened - however, over the same period of time (~3.5 years) it certainly appears there have been more requests for a tech board.


Quick Notes:

- The total amount of thread requests for a tech board (as of 7/23/13) was found to be 28, which compares to 27 requests for a music board over a similar period of time.

- There have now been 4 consecutive years where there have been 4+ requests for a tech board.

- There have been more requests for a tech board in 2013 than there were requests for a music board in either 2008 or 2009.



This specific comparison with the music board was made for a few reasons. Despite its rather meager daily activity, the music board was highly requested for years, and after years of continued campaigning by a core group of individuals, the board ultimately became a reality. As the data shows, the possibility of a tech board has elicited a similar amount of requests over a similar period of time.

Perhaps most notably, however, is that in early 2011, in the 4th year of consistent requests for a music board, it was finally confirmed to be in the works. This was also around the same time that a Classifieds Board was confirmed.

quote:

quote:

are you considering a music board?

yes...can't say when, but it will happen.



quote:

quote:

Will a Classifieds board ever happen

yes...it is on the drawing board...


And yet, we're currently more than halfway through the 4th year of consistent requests for a tech board, and have yet to receive a genuine response (unfortunately, comments made on April 1st don't exactly exude legitimacy...).

With each passing year, technology becomes increasingly relevant from a cultural perspective, and continually becomes more embedded and necessary throughout our daily lives. It's been shown that tech related threads are produced with exceptional prevalence on the site, and the requests for a dedicated place of discussion have seemingly fallen on deaf ears, despite the fact that such requests have been made just as frequently, if not more so, than the requests for other boards.

As with the request threads for most other boards, many of which have received responses, it should simply be asked -

Will a tech board ever become a reality?

When we get a tech board, I will miss these threads.

Of course the tech board will have more requests. People stopped asking for a music board WHEN IT WAS CREATED.

Support for tech board.

It needs to happen. A dedicated board would bring about some really good threads, good discussion and some good posters that a dedicated board would already bring on a high traffic site like TD.

Alter?

ETA, this was the reply:

I addressed this in the second post, but I suppose it's worth repeating - 2011 was the last year before the Music Board was implemented. In fact, it was confirmed to be in the works in the first half of 2011.


However, the amount of requests for a Tech Board (2010-now, approximately 3.5 years) surpasses the amount of requests for a Music Board between 2008 and the first half of 2011 (approximately 3.5 years).

Roommate's account.

Did you see how I arrived at that conclusion?

2008 -2011 (first half) - ~3.5 years at the time the Music Board was confirmed.

2010 - present - ~3.5 years.

I think the actual discussions would have more substance than the threads from most other boards.

I don't think that it "sucks"...I just don't know that the actual subject matter provides the opportunity for in-depth or engaging discussions.

Regardless of its current level of activity, it was a highly requested board that ultimately became a reality. The continued requests played a role in this.

However, despite just as many (if not slightly more) requests for a Tech Board during similar time periods, we have yet to even receive a legitimate answer as to whether such a board will ever be implemented.
