The Longform Discussion Thread Needs Your Feedback Please!

I have been noticing a lack of participation in the Longform Political Discussion space for the last several weeks. So I want to know how this space can better serve the fine users of the Avocado. Here are some questions I can think of but please feel free to mention any other suggestions you have.

  1. Is the Day wrong? I always shoot for a Thursday Morning but if enough people want it on say a Friday I can do that
  2. What form should optional topics take and should I make them a bigger focus?
  3. Is this a thing that a lot of site users even want/need or is it clogging up webspace? (Note I have no emotional attachments to this column I am simply providing a service I thought was lacking after the last PT Survey)
