Changes. IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ!

Postby Ceri the Urt » Thu Aug 20, 2015 2:19 pm

Okay everyone. We have to make a few hard choices here. As Mals post states our host upped the price of the Forums considerably. We wanted to move the forums to a new host, but we have 6 years of posts built up, most of which are not being looked at.

I personally think we need to do some major pruning and get rid of all of the posts that have not been looked at the last 6 months or so. If people have to write new posts then so be it. New posts = fresh new prospective and we can better see who is still posting.

What does everyone think?

Go for it. The absence of information after pruning may breathe some new life back into the boards as questions come up. Get rid of all accounts with a zero post count while you are at it. They can always rejoin if they are genuine lurkers.
If you see something broken on these boards send me a PM please.

I concur. The cruft needs to die.

Keep the best threads. It'd be a real shame to see them disappear forever.

most of which are not being looked at.


Seems you have the answer right there.

However, how much effort and resources would it take to archive these posts somewhere (else)?

If it's necessary, it's necessary.

If I won't put up with an in-character owner trying to control my OOC life, what makes you think I'll put up with you trying to do that?

I like the idea of clearing them out. Feng Shui!

Same, no objection at all with the idea of cleaning everything out.

Clean it all out.
Let me give you some advice bastard. Never forget what you are. The rest of the world will not. Wear it like armor, and it can never be used to hurt you.
