In the nature of being solution oriented and maybe compromise how about all of the main brand "Fun with..." (i.e. this Fun with Sony____ ) threads become a sticky post and it will never go away and people can choose whether or not to post their images here as well as whatever the "flavor of the month" camera model "Fun with..." thread. Everyone is happy. The main "Fun with..." thread never goes to page 10 and people will be able to do their research or viewing of image examples from whatever camera they want. That can be a forum wide thing though. I know there are search features and they help in most cases but I agree that if I wanted to say only look at A7/r stuff then going through 122 pages would be a bit much for me as I generally wouldn't care after a certain point.
Great job all around though from the owners/ mods so I don't want this to seem like anyone is poking and pointing fingers. This is probably the only photography forum I visit on a regular basis and that's for a great reason.
