If you're posting a final EPYC thread, please post each sentence and picture as its own post (within a thread or geeklist), so each can be thumbed/commented on separately.

Honestly, if you're posting a big list of sentences and pictures, anyway, it shouldn't take but a few extra seconds to post each one as a new post of its own. They'd still be in the right order and have exactly the same effect when reading them (actually, the slight separation of posts might make it even better to follow everything), but it would be nice to be able to comment/thumb some specific things once the whole thing is done.

I'm really loving these, though, and hope to get in on a game myself soon.

This would be great if the complete game has it's own tread. I imagine the main thread would get too cluttered. I wonder if there is a way to effectively do this in the individual session reports.

Join us for a game or seven.

All I know is I keep reading these when they pop up as their own individual session reports, and there's no reason (I know of) why they couldn't have separate posts for each sentence and picture.

The session reports are supposed to be a duplicate post. Most of us already comment on the finished games in these threads:

EPYC Chit Chat thread
EPYC Results thread

Check them out. While they are not split up as you suggested we still get to comment after the game was posted.

Also if you're watching for more results I believe we are no longer allowed to post these in the sessions forum due to many complaints of us flooding the front page. Sigh.

I think most/all of the sessions have been moved to the Play By Forum part of EPYC.

So subscribe to that forum or to the results thread if you want to keep watching these. (Also the results thread has some games that never got posted as sessions).

Really? When did this happen? Well, unless an admin tells me not to, or I see a post from an admin about it, I will continue to post my final games in the session reports form for EPYC.


EDIT:
I just realized that all my session reports have been posted in the Play By Forum.

Well, that's fine, but rather than following some big epic thread, I like how each finished string is posted as its own thread. In which case, make each part a separate post.

You do realize that the person who benefits most by doing so is the person doing the posting. Any thumbs you give someone else's sentence will be going to the poster, not to the caption-er.

Besides which, I'd rather post it as one thing, to be honest; it flows better, and multiple items can be quoted together easier. If you like a particular sentence, QFT it.

Who cares who gets the thumbs... Seriously, does anybody actually count their thumbs here??? But it's a way to show specific appreciation. You could give a GG tip to a specific line or picture, and the poster (assuming they're not a jerk) could forward that to the person.

Not saying I care. Saying that it's duplication of effort.

If you want to show appreciation for a specific line, do what everyone else has done so far: quote it and re-post it on it's own. But asking someone to do 11 posts for a single chain - posts which might get interrupted by other people commenting before the posting's done, for whatever reason, disrupting the run of the thread?

Now, turning it into a Geeklist might be closer to what you're wanting, with better control of the thread for the chain-poster. But still.... Perhaps you'd like to join a game, and see if it's feasible to ask it...? They're looking for replacements in a couple of chains still...

You will not truly understand EPYC until you accept this one truth: There are no pictures or sentences in EPYC, only threads.
