@charizard1605: Your hype thread is probably the direction I'll push more users into taking. The role of claiming the hype thread is more to manage who hypes what and to push relevant, important information about the game--sort of keep the thread alive with the discussion (not bump the threads.)
I mean, look at what we have for hype threads and then how many users do you think actually read or look at what is put in these threads? I'm not meaning to be a downer--I just want to set expectations because I respect users' time. A perfect example of this is five posts up: you'll see a user who posted in this very thread thinking this was the NieR hype thread. Users just don't read the threads. They'll look at images and that's that.
Please, if you're passionate and can engage users with great images and useful information put time into it! We don't want lazy hype threads. But I think as we continue claiming hype threads, I'm going to modify the expectations: owner of the hype thread becomes more of a host to engage discussion and log hype and coordinate other things.
