Seeing the new freshmen arrive on campus got me to thinking about how this weekend could be viewed as the start of the new season. It also got me to wondering about whether the recruiting and tracking the commitments threads could be organized better.
The way that they are structured now, they are just never ending threads. It’s going to become more and more difficult to go back and find something in them (of course, the positive side of that is that we will only ever have one thread to have to search through for something that we are looking for).
My first thought was that we could just arbitrarily start new recruiting and commitment threads every year when the new freshmen arrive, or the first day of classes every fall, or the opening of basketball practice every season.
Then I thought maybe we’d be better of aligning both of those threads with the actual recruiting class. So we could start 2013, 2014, etc recruiting and commitment tracking threads. If we did that we’d almost have a defined end date for each of the threads so they wouldn’t grow endlessly but the downside would be that the pinned threads at the top would double or triple in size.
Or we could just leave well enough alone and continue to let them grow (at least until we have another system crash and burn ;D ).
I don’t think it’s a particularly big deal but was wondering what others thought (of course, the actual implementation of any change would totally be at the discretion of Ayatollah Beidel).
What say you all?
