Forum Spring-Clean
« on: January 27, 2013, 02:42:51 am »
It's nearing up to Spring and these forums are cluttered with topics and threads from nearly a year ago now. They have died and need to be archived/deleted such. My initial concern is the Government Forum. I was thinking perhaps it would be wise to clear the entire forum out every time a new congress is elected. Archive the important threads (Natural Enemy discussions, Impeachments, etc.) by all means. But it would be far simpler to navigate and sift through all of the useless and dead topics, also reducing the risk of necroposting.

Just a t.

Eh, I've never seen it as a problem. Infact, when I first entered congress as a newblet, looking through the old congress threads was actually pretty useful to see how things were done.

I like having the old threads. They are sometimes useful during discussions and are good references. As above, just use the New posts button :P

It's useful for all threads to be easily accessible. We don't have many issues with necroposting in the first place, anyway.

Forums have an automatic archive, when you reach a certain number of topics they drop to page 2.

Because the newest/most active topics stay at the top you don't ever need an archive.
