    Default Should we restructure the Length-Specific Threads?

    There's ongoing talk about combining Waist To Hip and Waist To Tailbone threads. YAY that! Actually, our support system is so important to us, and we love graduating to new milestone threads so much, that maybe we should perfect our whole Length-Specific thread system.

    The Index to Important Threads and Resources currently lists these:

    All Lengths Post Here
    Buzz to Chin Length
    Chin to Shoulder Length
    Shoulder to APL Length
    APL to MBL Length
    MBL to Waist Length
    Waist to Hip Length
    Hip to Tailbone Length
    Waist to Tailbone Length
    Tailbone to Classic Length
    Classic to Knee Length
    Knee Length and Beyond!
    Floor Length and Beyond!
    Non-Growth Oriented Thread for Shorter Lengths

    I consulted the Length Chart y'all helped me create last year, and I searched for thread titles. So here's that same list with changes we might consider:

    All Lengths Post Here
    Buzz to Chin Length
    ^ 1466 pgs, skips Ear. Maybe split, even tho markers are only 2" apart
    Buzz To Ear
    ^ Maybe need to create this?
    Ear To Chin
    ^ 1 pg. Exists, is a tiny thread, prolly should add to Threads List

    Chin to Shoulder Length
    Shoulder To Collarbone
    ^ There's a few inches here, maybe worth creating this?
    Collarbone To Armpit Length
    ^ Likely worth creating this
    Shoulder to APL Length
    ^ 1630 pgs, skips CBL, several inches between, worth splitting this?
    APL to MBL Length
    MBL to Waist Length
    Waist to Hip Length
    Hip To Buttcrack Length
    ^ 50 pgs, exists and should be added to Threads list
    Buttcrack To Tailbone
    ^ There's not a lot of inches between here, maybe not worth creating?
    Hip to Tailbone Length
    ^ 288 pgs. Skips BCL. Maybe should split.
    Waist to Tailbone Length
    ^ 1323 pgs. Skips Hip and BCL, totally split and merge w Waist To Hip
    Tailbone to Classic Length
    Classic To Fingertip Length
    ^ Seems badly needed, and FTL is a common standard hair and skirts
    Fingertip To Mid-Thigh
    ^ Maybe needed, maybe not. Is only ~2" down from FTL

    Mid-Thigh [or FTL] To Knee
    ^ Seems badly needed
    Classic to Knee Length
    ^ 695 pgs. Horrible category. Covers 18" and skips two markers.
    Knee To Calf
    ^ Seems badly needed
    Calf To Ankle
    ^ Seems badly needed
    Ankle To Floor
    ^ Seems moderately needed
    Knee Length and Beyond!
    ^ 428 pgs. ICK!!! Covers infinity and skips 3 markers. Split merge kill death die!
    Floor Length and Beyond!
    TERMINAL
    ^ 147 pgs. Exists, is important subject, blah blah, totally should add to list.
    Non-Growth Oriented Thread for Shorter Lengths

    I don't know how practical it is to split extant threads, but some of them def need it. As said, we love our length-specific support and we love our threads we can graduate (or demote ourselves) into.

    Default Re: Should we restructure the Length-Specific Threads?

    Changing my list a bit probably getting a bit overboard lol I know I said originally that it was too nit picky but here I am now trying to be inclusive of all milestones

    All Lengths Thread
    Buzz to Cheekbone or Buzz to Pixie
    Cheekbone to Chin or Pixie to Chin
    Chin to Shoulder
    Shoulder to Collarbone
    Collarbone to Armpit
    Armpit to Midback
    Midback to Waist
    Waist to Hip
    Hip to Butt (sounds better than Buttcrack)
    Butt to Tailbone
    Tailbone to MTL
    Fingertip ( fingertip seems to be pretty popular so maybe have its own thread??)
    Mid thigh to Knee
    Knee to Upper Calf
    Upper Calf to Lower calf
    Lower Calf to Ankle
    Ankle to Floor and Beyond
    Terminal

    Wow, you've put a lot of effort into this! I applaud you

    I agree with Bat. To add to the argument, I also think these threads have come about organically and there's probably good reasons why there are fewer groups for classic+. If you think about it, Waist to TBL is probably the same distance as three other threads combined..

    But I agree with you, Vara La Fey, that overlapping threads are confusing. I myself wondered which of three threads I was supposed to join (Waist to Hip Length, Hip to Tailbone Length or Waist to Tailbone Length), and to me it felt like spamming to write similar posts in all three..

    Chin to Shoulder

    MBL to Waist
    Waist to Hip
    Hip to TBL (includes bcl)
    TBL to Classic
    Classic to Midthigh (can include fingertip since fingertip and mtl can be very similar)
    MTL to Knee
    Knee to Calf
    Calf to Floor+
    Terminal
    Maybe any marker that's 3" (6 months growth time) away from other markers should get its own thread. A lot can happen in 6 months.

    That'd make Ear arguable for inclusion, esp since hair 'health' issues are a big part of length threads, and hair that's <chin length shouldn't have such issues.
    Collarbone would be arguable.
    BCL would be arguable.
    FTL/MT could likely just be FTL, since that's a common skirt length anyway.
    Ankle def needs its own category. It's totally a marker, esp for people who don't want to actually step on their hair.

    Thanks for the cute "not-worthy" anim-icon thingy. :-) I didn't even know it existed.

    They seem organic to me too, which is good because they're needed, and bad because they're a mess.

    It dawned on me a few min ago that any marker <3" (6 months) from another marker maybe doesn't need to be a milestone/marker at all, and thus doesn't need its own thread. That might eliminate Ear, CBL, BCL and MT. We could measure ourselves and find a rough average, but I'm too tired tonight....

    Waist To Tailbone is just wrong. I say split it and merge the parts where they belong. Ditto for all other overlappers.

    You could also take into consideration the hair length polls. Although I do not know how representative they are, since the amount of people voting is far less than the number of members.

    I think there should be enough markers to keep the incentive as well as address the unique issues encountered at each length. But no more markers are needed than that. Which part of the ear would count as Ear Length?

    The 3"/6mo thing might work to keep too many markers from being created. But it doesn't address long stretches like FTL - Knee or Calf - Ankle.

    I'm fine with keeping it buzz to Chin i just wouldn't be opposed if they did it ear, bcl and collarbone don't really need a topic fingertip is arguble since mosy people like the idea but some like me prefer mtl to be mentioned it was my goal when i first joined

    Totally. I just didn't know where they were. Thanks.

    Pretty consistent bell-cluster at MBL-TBL. Does that mean we should have more length-specific threads in that range?

    211 voters for the '22 poll is great. Not everyone needs to participate to get a good sample.
