low count pools and regarding their continuted existence

Posted under General

the following is all pools currently active that have a post count of 3 or less, which either they should be parented instead if being a completed comic, or are missing pages, or a plethora of other reasons to go over, i'm attempting this thread to bring eyes on the issue, as there's another ~2,000 pools that have only 4-5 posts, borderline on the communities threshold on what should be parented and what should be pooled

I put in the expand tags because this topic was kind of un-navigable without them.

I'm of the opinion that pools with 0, 1 or 2 posts, can probably be safely deleted / converted to parent-child relationships (though we do lose the pool metadata in that case).

For 3 or more, generally unless there is a good reason to remove them, I feel they should be left alone. With 3 or more posts, order can't be preserved in a parent/child relationship, and small pools can still grow.

In any case, these should mostly be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

The collection pools look like most of them can be tags (eg charts), moved to similar tags/pools, or tossed.

I don't see what's gained from changing a tiny series pool into a parent/child relationship?

Tags focus on objective things, configurations, or relationships, while collection pools focus more on subjective situations or personal impressions.

Therefore, it's difficult to judge a pool simply by the number of posts it contains. If the intent and concept behind the pool is valid, no matter how few posts it contains, it's not the pool's fault. It's the creator's dereliction of duty.

Of course, there can be the opposite cases, where the number of posts it contains is high, but the concept is not clear or can be substituted with tags.
