    Posted: 04 September 2011 at 19:59

At this moment there are over 1500 entries in Dyxum Themed Views. Of course there are many doubles, because some subjects each already have over 20 entries (with about 15 pages each!).
Taken that into consideration there are over 800 different subjects (statistics gathered by bms44974 (Brian))
One can easily imagine that older threads are no longer found and overlapping new ones are created instead.
That all makes it difficult to find the thread you want to add your fine picture to. Creating a new Themed entry is a way that was used in several cases, causing doubles and very similar threads.
Enough numbers. It's clear: we need an index.
It's also clear that setting this up requires some work. Especially because it will always be 'work under construction', given new entries are created all the time.
Anyway, if we manage to re-use existing entries or even make finding existing threads easier, such index is already very useful
So let's start it of with the most popular threads and add the others later.

Current most popular threads

Thank you! Very useful!

One small comment - maybe it is better to have the latest open thread of each subject. For example, you linked to "Show us some birds...47", but it is already closed and now "Show us some birds...48" is running.

As said it's work in progress
I'll repair this one

I have talked to Micholand and will soon progressively start altering the names of many Themed Views threads to make them more "direct".

Therefore "Show us some birds" will become just "Birds"; "flowers, flowers, flowers" will become just "Flowers", and so on.

Please bear with us while the changes are put into effect.

I actually just saw the new thread on portraits started by Cam and I posted the first pics. I saw that he specifically said no glamor shots and I did a double take like, "but JT and Bahudda always post glamor shots", lol.

I obviously hadn't seen this thread but I do quite agree that sometimes you don't feel like contributing on that thread just because glamor shots take over it and make you feel self-conscience about your shots. The problem is that if they wouldn't post, that thread might go stale since they are the main contributors.

We have to encourage our members to post more in that thread and in all the other themed views for that matter. This includes us guys

We plan to revive a thread for glamour only (with a NSFW tag) and the two you mention will find their shots moved moved there.
