None of this discussion pertains to "Greatest of all time" in terms of Impact in the industry.

I think the OP of those GOAT threads measuring talent, whoever it was, probably used the word "GOAT" in the title instead of using the word "Best" because comparison threads are immediately closed around here.

Anyways, my point is that you guys have created and Stickied a official thread for a topic that wasnt even being discussed, in those aforementioned threads, in the first place.

Close and remove it. Thank you.
All of those elements you mentioned can and do pertain to GOAT discussions imo. If you want to discuss those things I do not see how that is problematic. In a greatest of all time discussion, sure you can compare talent level, industry influence, etc. The context of discussion is measuring and ranking status in the business and the subjective discussions on talent should make that discussion go beyond "Austin > Rock." As of right now the thread is basically in 'trial run' mode and we are going to see how it moves in the next couple of weeks. From what I have seen in only a couple hours of the thread's existence so far the discussion is no different from what you would find in 10 other duplicate GOAT threads running at the same time, but we'll see how the general discussion works out in the meantime.


Much gratitude to

Re: Official GOAT Thread? Why? Bad Idea!

Because these GOAT threads are fucking annoying, that's why. I'm sick of hearing GOAT this and GOAT that. Anyone calls me a goat and I'll break their face.

It's basically because everday there are dozens of GOAT threads opened up and usualy at any given time the first page of the WWE section is filled with them.

Re: Official GOAT Thread? Why? Bad Idea!

Mods are GOAT, therefore mods can say whether or not there should be a sticky GOAT thread.

It's always all about him.
