    I have an idea for pokefag/pokenoob threads whenever a new pokemon game is released.
    Any thread that is created with the title "Pokemon X" or "Pokemon Y" in it should redirect to the pokemon info thread and the thread wont be posted.

    Thirded, this ALWAYS gets out of hand every year.
    It's crazy to think lockdowns don't actually happen here often enough.

    Between insane and insecure
    That sounds rather hard and over complicated not to mention people would find ways to bypass it pretty easily.
    Really that's too much work for a flood that doesn't really last that long

    Easier said than done.

    Making this filter would demand work and would easily be bypassed.
    Not only that, this filter would be necessary for only a limited time.
    Considering Pokémon X and Y are going to be released this week,
    and therefore the time to implement that is so short, I say it's not a viable option.

    Thats a stupid idea.

    For instance, the WiFi thread I made yesterday, its a completely different thing to the Info thread
    The news thread on the leaker is a separate entity too,
    There havent even been any mass thread posts this time around anyway.
    Its a better idea to get a Luigi lots of numbers filter that puts all your posts into a Luigi lots of numbers says thread.
