More pages sure.

A message board, not so much.


Message boards are made up of pages. The Man of steel thread is closing in on TWO HUNDRED pages alone.

Right, but if your primary goal is to generate pages and thus maximize revenue, there are much more efficient means of page generation.
- Continuity is or it is not. There is no such thing as soft continuity.
- A character IS his continuity.
- Continuity is consistency of the characteristics of people, plot, objects, and places seen by the reader or viewer.

Than a message board? Not really. You put it there, people generate the pages for you.

Correct. I cant think of a more efficient means than "sit back and let the posters do all the work."

Tons of pages, good keyword density.
