Real Na'vi Tribe forum section
« on: December 02, 2013, 02:17:44 pm »
This ambitious project appears to have wound down and there is very little traffic in the forum section for it now.  I have been having thoughts of archiving the section and removing it from production permanently. If anyone has any thoughts or comments on this, or a good reason why the forum section should remain, please let me know here.

Thanks!

-Markì

I voted 'yes' but I wouldn't delete it, better archive them. In the German section has been moved the old role-playing boards into a board "old role-play" (as child-board). So it will be everything there, and if in future this section become more active, they can reads what was written in the past and could use it as a source as well.

I don't think Marki has any intention of deleting it, just archiving it as he says in his post.

(Re-voted...)

I do think it should be closed/locked.  Perhaps moved, as Tìtstewan suggests, to an archive area but still be readable by members.  I found this section both interesting and thought provoking to read when I came to the LN forum.  While I admit that I didn't think it was feasible as it takes much time to understand to live in harmony with the land to really understand what it can provide, and what overwhelms it (resources), I think having this section readable and searchable is valuable for future members as new interest in the Na'vi culture and way of life emerges through the future films and books.

As a bystander, I do think the project is a "no go".  Not for a large group trying to carve out an area for their own preferably in isolation.  But this section has, imo, great value to read and reflect upon as both what could be, and what our way of life was in our distant past (and still is for a few cultures).  Plus it reflects ideas and discussion on what we, as a "modern" society have given up, as well as forgotten (both spiritually and skills) through the passing of time and technological advancement.

I have edited the poll for clarity and fixed the silly typo in the topic. Also set the poll to allow vote changes.

Thanks for the feedback!

Locking it makes sense, but I don't see how it helps anything for it to be hidden from members browsing it.

A lot of fora have an ability to set up an archive area, where depreciated fora can be 'stored'. they are still available to users, but are not editable/appendable. I suspect that SMF can do this, but I have never looked to see if this is possible. I think this is what Marki has in mind.

Archiving is useful, as it shortens the list of active fora one has to look through without actually deleting content.

Good point about it staying visible. I guess I am thinking more of housecleaning. SMF doesn't have a board archiving feature.  It's a bit of a fuss, but I can specifically set each board in the section to "local" permission and disallow new topics and replies. That would leave it visible, but not writable.

EDIT: I restarted the poll with new options...

Well, voted "Archive but remain visible", because I see no reason why these boards should be hidden.

Ok, the Tribe forum is now archived. It is visible, but read-only.
