What I've noticed over time here on NSers is that there are lots of great conversations going on within the Forum AND/OR in News comments sections, but they are two separate conversations. My question: is there a way to fuse these two so conversations are not segregated?
1. When a brand new article is posted in the News section an automatic thread is created in its respective Forum (Ski Gabber, Non-Ski Gabber, Media & Arts, etc...). Perhaps it even has a sticky for that 1 day when it goes live.
2. If a user makes a comment in the News article, then the Forum automatically updates with that same comment.
3. If a user makes a comment in the Forum thread, the News article comment is also automatically updated with that same comment.
Just a thought, seems like a lot of work to implement this, but I just feel like there are so many places that the same conversations are happening and this could potentially help bring members together on one string for that specific topic.
