    Goon question:
    It has been defined as both 'opening season' and 'first year' so is this 12 months from opening or within the same calendar year?

    Sorry to be a stick in the mud here, but is anyone - anyone at all - actually reading this thread? I went back five pages to check, and 95 % of all posts are people just listing their entries, occasionally interspersed by a quote of their previous post to list the additions. There's also the rare post of people correcting mistakes of themselves or others ("That coaster didn't open that year"), and there was one post last summer asking somebody to post their opinions on a new coaster in a recently unstickied construction thread. But with very few exceptions, people are just making lists and adding entries to them. I can see the utility of using this thread to keep a count of things for personal reasons, but I don't think it belongs in "General Discussions" if all that's being done practically amounts to taking notes.

    Contrast with the Top 10-ish thread, which shows similar tendencies, but has a lot more discussion in-between, because it's actually interesting to see which coasters people rank the highest. But I'm not particularly interested in seeing what coasters people rode when, without any other information listed. So, you were there when Thirteen opened in 2010? Cool.

    Again, sorry to be ranting, but... I think this thread is useless for discussion, very few posts are interesting for any other people than the ones who wrote them, and it has been going on for nine years now. I'd like to hear whether I'm the only one to click "see new posts" habitually and be equally disappointed every time I realize which thread I just opened.

    So I'm one for shamelessly, continuously updating mine.... but I like to use it as a reference. That I can look back on and see without having to keep a copy elsewhere. And when I do go to update mine, I do look at the posts between my previous post and the current one I would be making a moment. It's actually because of this topic that I realize that Joker at New England was my 100 coaster ridden in its opening year. Otherwise I would never really thought about it.

    And honestly, outside of maybe a construction topic. How many people truly come back and read every post, in every topic.... they've personally posted in after they made their initial post?

    I'd say I probably read 90% of the messages posted on CF. And that 10% is just the Three Word Story. ;)

    +1 for that. My goon question was sadly ignored.

    I think the spirit of the original question was the latter.
