Since the forum lends itself better to ongoing discussion that can be joined in or continued at any time, I’ve made it so Reviews are linked to an automatically created forum thread. Blog posts seem to work better for discussion when they are posted, and then rarely get commented on after that initial exposure. That’s ok, it’s more of a news medium versus, well, a forum.
I figured we didn’t need to automatically link standard updates, but if I think something is important or will be a reoccurring topic, I might link them manually. Same for news that might be fun to chat about (like that Wonder Woman Costume Change.)
