Nah, it's easy. All you'd need to do is quote the original post and people would know exactly what you're talking about, like so

It was a useful resource here and the number of widely different subjects deserved their own threads. Many went quiet only to come back again with a vengeance, something that would be very difficult to happen if it was only a single thread. Some threads acted as warnings to others, not to fall foul of the same pitfalls and most were just there for a shoulder to cry on.

A single thread for vents would be a crying shame.
Yayyyyy I totally agree with steve9872 on this matter.

Plus I love venting. I always have something to vent about. :rolleyes: I can easily make that board very lively! :p (I'm joking! ;) )

I preferred it the way it was before where they had their own boards. It was just easier to find things.

the bargain board was, for me, certainly the more visited off all three, but then there are so many thngs going on to vent your spleen on, victor meldrew style, the vent board was pretty good too, and i dont feel a single thread could do it justice? is there any chance of the two being made? :cross:

1056 posts in total, compared to 14503 in Film Discussion. Not "fine" in my book, but if you guys really want it there's still time to turn around the vote.

I voted for the bargain board out of these. But I really think that it should be restricted to entertainment-related bargains such as cut-price tickets, free DVDs , eating out deals (for me the cinema and eating out go hand in hand).
When you start including things like toys and make-up it just starts turning into MSE.

Pooh, I missed the poll altogether! Only just found this discussion. (So I guess if it wasn't too late, I'd be voting for the Vent Board.)

Right, that poll has long ended and the Bargain Board has won so where is it?
