Archiving
« on: September 16, 2009, 10:22:10 am »


Dear Forum peeps

It's time to clean the house, we mods have our brushes and brooms at the ready. That's right... we are archiving!
ATA We will keep all your questions safe. Please check ATA archive.
General Chat We will keep our chattering in archive until next archiving round (then we will delete the previous one).
LOL Currans We will keep all lovely pics but will have to cut down some chattering, I'm afraid.
Wolf Kin We are moving this much-loved topic to other authors section. You can find our lovely Cheese under Recommendations & Discussions.

We are sorry that this will lower your post counts but we have every faith that you will make up for it in no time at all!

Best regards
The mods of doom (CheeseBK, mjt_3 and Ying)

Our post count has gone past 15K!! Can you believe it? We have only done our first archive last month and we did get it down to less than 10K...

So, early warning for you guys, we will be pruning the forum again soon (probably this weekend). So please do not be upset if your post counts have gone down. I am sure that it will grow back better and stronger very quickly.

We are going to delete the Old general chat thread (in archive section) and replace it with the one we have now. If you want us to keep any posts, please do not hesitate to give us a shout. xxx

I'm a geek. Hopeless. I just realized that limiting the forum to 15k posts means we can have 15 beast lords max. *headdesk* Why do I realize such things? Now I have to resist the urge to calculate what that means if we assume a average number of 5 beastlords and divide the remaining post among the most active members...
Good luck with the pruning, mods of doom!

LOL lacrima, you crack me up! I will keep this entertaining thought in mind when I tackle the pruning.

Does this mean a demotion?  I can take it,  really, just tell me up front.  I can girl up  and    **sniffle**  be tough.

Blue hon, I don't think you will have any fear of being demoted. I will have to delete a lot to demote you from beast lord! LOL. I think I might demote myself though.
