    Just how we have a chapter discussion weekly of the latest chapter, how about we also discuss old chapters
    Like every week we read an old chapter, make a thread and discuss it
    I think its a fun little thing we can do
    it will not only bring activity to the forum
    but also help us relive that one piece adventure but with our nakama at opf this time!

    Basically we starts from chapter 1 and we make a new chapter discussion thread like every sunday
    we can share small details about the chapter that others might have missed(pandaman), trivia about the chapter,how the chapter was in general, etc
    I have been wanting to Do this for some time
    As in this way I can read 1 or maybe 2 or 3 chapters per week with everyone which will be fun I think
    but i was afraid not many ppl will like the idea

    Open to suggestions how we want to Do this or to even do it at all
    Like If u don't want to reread and discuss the whole thing from the start then
    we can just pick an old random chapter on a break week and discuss that
    My plan is 1 chapter every week on sunday cuz we get new chapter on thursday
    and we do 2 chapter on break week but if u want more chaps per week then let me know

    So what do u think?
    R u willing to discuss an old chapter every week alongside the new chapter?
    And vote in the poll!

    so rereading and commenting on that? that's cool but time consuming no?

    count me in as maybe, or sometimes :smile:

    I like the idea and even though i'd probably not discuss an old chapter every week, I voted "yes" in the poll. We might even find some subtle hints that you only get after you have already read the newer chapters.

    i think its a nice idea, i would love to revisit old chapters and discuss them from the beginning. Are y'all gonna make videos of the old chapters to?

    I'm already rereading OP by myself, but yeah why not. After all it'd still be only one chapter per week, I don't see how it could be any time consuming. Count me in!

    it will be only one chapter a week
    it would take same time as it does to read the new chap and write something in the new discussion thread

    that's upto the youtube team :P

    There's a lot of chapters to get through, but it's something I'd be up for
    I think it could eventually be something quite cool for the anime only people, since they can compare the chapter to the episode etc.

    One question:
    When do chapters stop qualifying as "old"?
    Will it be something like, if we already have a discussion thread on the forum we don't re-discuss it

    This might seem a bit radical, but why not bump it up to 2 chapters on occasion? There's a lot of ground to cover and whilst there's no real rush, sometimes there's those "in-between" kind of chapters where nothing really happens

    EDIT: We could have our own OPF version of "Throwback Thursday", and make this a proper sub-forum and stuff

    Yes we won't re discuss a chapter which already has a thread
    basically the idea is to get like a "record" of all the chaps on the forum(i hope u understand what i mean xD)
    we still have around 650+ chaps to discuss which would take around 10 years if we go 1 chap a week xD

    As i said i plan to do 2 chaps on weeks when we have a break on the usual chapter release which would be like every 4th week i think
    But i see what u mean and yeah we can definitely club those in between chaps

    I get what you mean
    I'd be down contributing to this idea, it sounds fun and it's a good excuse to re-read the manga

    I like this idea. Like 2 chapters every two weeks or when One Piece is on break, since we already have a weekly chapter and I'm afraid people wouldn't give this activity so much attention because of that, if it's every two weeks/break I can see more people participating.

    I think that's a good idea. It makes you understand more of the story and maybe you might find hint on those old chapters that would to future events.

    That;s a really cool idea. It'd be especially fun to discuss foreshadowing from re-reading old chapters. I'd definitely participate :D

    Yeah I agree with this cause I missed some chapters too :))

    Eventhough I'm re-reading it from the start, it will be better if all of us take a quick look/review on the past chapters.

    Ok so yeah I think we'll discuss a couple of old chapter every time there is a break on the latest chapter release
    and if we get more response then we might shift it to a weekly thing
    so i'll probably make "one piece chapter 1 discussion thread" the next time there is a break , watch out for that
    Only 1 chapter this first time since i think the 1st chapter deserves its own thread xD

    Great idea, I know this plan is already set in motion but I'd like it to have more visibility and organization, I only find it when someone replies to a thread of an old One Piece Chapter and they're just randomly strewn around the Manga section.

    How about a subsection which has something like "Old Chapters"? Once you're up to the first chapter posted on this forum, I'm thinking of a merge with the "Past Chapters" subsection.

    I agree.
    Should I just start posting in the past chapters thread. The chapters there are relatively new so I got confused :S

    Nah, I'd suggest not doing that atm because the "Past Chapters" subsection is more of a archive section, whereas what you're doing now is rereading the chapter and discussing your thoughts. Not to mention the spoilers involved. That reminds me, there should probably be a notice or sticky on top of this new subsection which states "Spoilers from recent chapters are present".
