    Not a question about the purpose of proposed restructuring or new threads. What do different people see as the purpose of the existing threads? Why do you post there? Why do you read the threads you read?
    I generally post in a milestone group when I'm in that thread to motivate me to keep going of course with my track record it doesn't help but I like the idea that I'm leveling up, weird I know

It also serves as a way to talk about hair length but not have our niche conversations be drowned out by all the other posts on a huge thread.

    I scroll through length threads of my goal/future lengths to see what I have to look forwards to. And to try out buns that I might not have enough length for. I actually tend to be very quiet on threads about my length (except to ask a question very rarely)
    When I first joined LHC I'd visit the longer threads but someone I don't know basically chased me out so I generally don't post in longer threads because of that

    I like your breakdown, Noot!

    Mods can't really split a thread in the manner people are thinking, Splitting a grouping up would mean starting new threads. (We don't generally lock threads, so the old one might still get bumped anyhow...) Merging things though, we can do that all day long

    Yeah this is pretty old some different type of forums allow you to split threads by putting the page number of where the split occurs I used to be a mod on an avatar site called syndrone online and that was how we used to split theads

    Why do you read the threads you read?

    For inspiration on styles that others are doing at a similar length.
    The chance of coming across advice that is specific to a length.
    To celebrate other peopleís milestones.

    Yep, this is an old version of the software too, so we are a bit behind for extensions...or sometimes we find that they break things. It keeps chuggin along though and so do we! It has outlasted of lot of its competition (the forum software I mean, although LHC has indeed outlasted a few other hair forums)

    I didn't love that waist to hip wasn't a very used thread when I first hit waist, but at this point I am perfectly fine with the larger distance in the WL-TBL thread. I think that the naturally less used threads should probably get merged with the larger one, to eliminate the confusion. For me personally, I can happily celebrate milestones without moving threads all the time, so it doesn't bother me

    I agree with this.
    For me, the primary reason is to encourage and celebrate milestones with people at a similar length. I can spend more time looking at and discussing length specific things with people when I'm only looking at the people in my area, that I can actually relate to and potentially have useful information for, instead of looking at posts of all lengths.

    Yeah it's actually surprising after 20 years it still works better than most forum sites ive seen

    I feel the same way. Graduating milestones is a great reward for patience, but graduating milestones doesn't need to involve leaving behind threads. If we focus so much on moving out of a thread, are we really enjoying the thread? It doesn't make sense to divide up the threads by milestone unless the goal is to move through this forum like levels in a game. And then we would just have 9 threads with posts of users time of arrival and maybe pictures when they graduate? I prefer to think of length threads as their own destinations, not just as mile-markers to blow through.

    Edit: I'm not knocking those who collect milestones like game incentives (I'm currently on the WL level hoping to beat the HL boss round ) I just don't think that the rewarding part of hitting a milestone should be leaving the thread. I get excited to update the length in my signature, others have their past milestones marked in color and their future marked in grey like a loading screen. We all like collecting our badges
