Repeated for clarity. I don't have a problem with recaps, but it unquestionably lacks these aforementioned qualities. True, broad strokes booking doesn't need them, but then you will forever remain in template territory. No meat on the bones, so to speak.

This is all insanely subjective, but I enjoy debating

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

You saw the discussion thread, but didn't see the "partner request" thread just three threads down?

Yeah, it goes in the "name change and partner request thread"

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I certainly can no longer write full shows without taking two months on them. It's a prolonged, drawn out affair. I wish I could write them with ease, though. I prefer them over recaps, definitely.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I prefer full shows as a reader and a writer, to be honest. Only problem is that with my turnaround rate it takes me at least a month to get a show done.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Guys I'm taking over one brand for my BTB either Raw or Smackdown, as I've not really seen that many single brand BTB's this BTB is set when the Brand Split has returned due to young talent coming up, as you're the people that read who would you like me to take over Smackdown or Raw?

I'm comfortable with both, each would three headline stars. One by be a bigger challenge then the other.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Completely up to you. You should write whichever brand you want to write.

I'd enjoy you returning more.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

I'm thinking about doing a BTB. I tried one last summer, but some outside forces beyond my control (as over dramatic as that sounds) led to it's demise and I haven't really been motivated to do one again until now. I can't think of what to do though. Past. Present. Create a fed from scratch. Use current roster/setup. I'm at a lost tbh. I would appreciate any suggestions if you'd like.

Re: The Official BTB Discussion Thread

Not to sound like a dick, but its really up to you and you only. I suggest doing a time period that you were an avid fan/watcher.
