I suggest we start nominating legendary threads. Maybe come up with some criteria. Maybe not? Just instinctive....somethin'? Voting process, whatever, nothing complicated.

I think in years to come they would be great to go back and look at. I know I've seen some hilariously unique threads full of personality since 2004 on the various forums. It would be great to have had them to look back on for laughs. There were some greats.

We endeavor to preserve and archive these strange and hilarious digital discourses so that The Legendary Threads Shall Not Perish From the Earth!

I agree with Carptetbagger that Jabe's 'Firefox 6' thread is fantastic. It started as a sarcastic jab at the subject. Then...well, we know the rest. It derailed and went somewhere in the 4th dimension with Mytzlplk with Quentin Tarantino as Alice's Chesshire cat. That would be my nomination for a Legendary Thread. :lol:

Arguably, the best idea ever.

Normally I would say that the only legendary threads I am aware of are those of my underpants that protect the world from my big secret weapon.

However when it comes to forum threads, this one comes to mind (mid-stream):

Both of those are indeed Legendary.

Maybe start a Legendary subforum and link back to those threads?

Need a way to nom new threads. I guess just a few folks agreeing to it is all it takes.

For reals. That thread is cracking my shit up right now. I re-read it from the beginning and it was only so so...but when you get to ill's public private message, it got funny in a hurry.

Seconded. Also, proposed rule...once a thread is selected for insertion, we lock it. Or at least have a gentleman's agreement not to add anything else. I think that would cheapen it...we're trying to preserve legitimate, organic awesomeness...not the forced or fabricated kind.

Basically, we don't want the hipsters of epic threads.

Oh yeah, that FFFUUUU thread works. :lol: And ditto on locking in the goodness. If the "no touching" rule is good enough for the Palace of Versailles and strip clubs it oughta be good enough for us.

Certainly someone should nominate a thread or two from this week.
