This is something I've seen over on the South Park Studios forums, perhaps it would be good to have what the title says? Just threads where you can discuss things about the character, opinions, images, love and hate?

I can see it may get a bit packed in that section if we have like 10+ threads for Fry, Leela, Bender, Zoidberg, Amy, Hermes, Professor, etc.... But, thoughts?

Not one of you will agree with me.

Well, if you state people won't agree with you, psychologically speaking, they're less likely to agree with you.

If you just want separate threads for certain characters, I'm not inherently against that.  However, can a thread for Hermes generate that much content?  I don't know, but if somebody wants to talk about Hermes that's cool.  The Human Resource Department is a much needed forum and it achieves its goals from my perspective.  This is a natural selection type case to me though; if I were moderator, I'd let you make the threads without closing them, but I suspect they'd get used pretty rarely and drop into obscurity a few pages back.  You might try searching for such threads, because I bet a lot of threads already exist to talk about specific characters like the ones you just suggested.  That's why I don't see the need for a ruling on this one; let it naturally work itself out, however it may.  If you want to discuss any of those topics, discuss them, but at the same time, don't overestimate the ability of others to desire to comment back with you.

What is this in specific response of out of curiosity?  Do you just want state mandated threads, or has someone been closing threads you thought reasonable?

As an example:

Official Hermes Love Thread

Your Opinion on Hermes

Favorite Hermes-ism or Quotes from Hermes

I'm pretty sure you could search and find similar threads for any given character, so without understanding the reasoning behind your request, I can't expose a formulated opinion on the reasonableness of your request.

Perhaps it would be better not to create new threads for more secondary and tertiary characters based on things like quotes and questions, but to point people in the direction of a general discussion thread for that character? Is this what you're getting at, Danny? If so, I feel like this would be a noble idea, although we'll of course run into people creating new threads all of the time.
