Match "Result" threads in General Forum

Is there anyway you can create a forum for match results?? The General forum is constantly flooded with result threads. If fans really want to post scores and talk about matches surely a seperate forum would be the best way to do this?? I can understand "big" matches being talked about in the General forum but I really don't want to have to sift through dozens of thread with results from a Tier IV events in Japan or Korea etc to find newsworthy discussions.

Re: Match "Result" threads in General Forum

Agreed, sometimes it's really too much. Often there are threads with approximately 5 posts in it that consists of "well done" "congrats" and similar stuff. I know it's not easy to prevent it as you can't stop a poster to create a thread when he/she wants to. Also it's hard to decide which match is big or important enough to deserve its own thread. But at least some sort of recommendation in the GM would be in order I guess. That said it probably would be better to create a forum for such threads because I don't think people will suddenly stop to post them, even after a recommendation or such. Pity that some posters don't recognize when a match isn't important enough not to post a thread about it.
