[-] Forum Pruning Disappeared Good Threads
« on: March 29, 2019, 03:10:35 AM »
I noticed a few days/week or so ago that a lot of the old game forums were pruned/made to disappear from the forum archives. However, there are a number of relevant threads in there that need to be referenced to new folks - for example - Sanabas's thread about the small plane experiment or two that he did a few years back. I've been searching for it with negative results (and I've found it a few times before). I was going to drop a link like I drop a mic into this guy's thread to educate him, but I've come up empty with my search.

Can we make archives great again?

Archives, yes :)

Yeah, I know we're maybe only 20 or 30 players looking into the archives, but it's relevant to be able to check them.

Thanks.

Emily's posts need their own archive

Memes aside, we should have Sami create a section of the forum for relevant historical threads for the player base in general, to reference when needed. It doesn't really have to be Sami going through all the threads. He can simply assign a section of the forum to a respected player and have them manage/tag threads to be flagged/moved to this new forum sub-section.

I vote the Owl should be burdened with this important task.

Only the game forums are archived, general boards not. And the oldest game forums are no longer visible, that's a choice that has been made to keep the forum at least somewhat tidy.

Yet there are decent "meta" type posts that get made in those game world forums that are no longer visible or searchable. The chap talking about the small airline struggles would benefit greatly from the sanabas small airline threads. Can those posts at least be searchable/linkable even if not visible in the forums list?
